Editorial Reviews


"[It's] that perfect Indulgence, like letting dark chocolate melt on your tongue." - Stuck in Books blog.
"This is a wonderful book, replete with great characters, a plot that twists and turns in all the right places, and an intelligent love story." - Harlequin Junkie
"One of the reasons I loved that story is that the author, like Brenda Jackson, doesn't focus on racism problems. The reader knows immediately the heroes don't have the same skin color, but it's really not the important element of the story. It's a fact which is only mentioned once, understandably, but never talked about again thereafter. It's also the reason I'll follow the author closely." - Les Romantiques
