Suspense, murder, mystery, and romance can all be found between the covers of this anthology. What makes it even better, is it’s not just contemporary stories here. There are a couple of paranormal stories for good measure.
The heroines were haunted by their pasts, running from an unseen enemy, struggling to make it alive just one more day, but refusing to cower in complete darkness. The heroes are strong men, willing to take on the burden their women carry, unwilling to lose them before having the chance to fully claim them. The attraction is nothing compared to the devotion between each person in each couple. Or, maybe, it’s what enhances that attraction. It’s the one ingredient that makes a passing fancy into a sizzling affair and morphs it into a love that’s undeniable and unconditional.
It’s a collection of stories worth reading, and a collection of stories worth having.
