No one would guess that tough-as-nails building contractor Vance Jennings once suffered a broken heart. Though the pain has subsided over the last twelve years, the memory is still just as fresh. Even fresher when she shows up on his doorstep asking for a second chance.

No way is he letting her back into his life. But he’s plenty happy enough to burn it up between the sheets for old times’ sake.

Shayla Riggs is older, wiser, and determined to make things right. Except she’s thrown for a loop by the changes in Vance. He’s definitely not the same sweet boy. Which might be a good thing…

It takes only a kiss, a caress, to bring back the explosive passion they once shared. But if Shayla can’t find a way to break through the bitter walls around his heart, it just might destroy them both. Again.

Each novella in the Blackwater Series is a standalone story and can be enjoyed in any order.

Good edition to the Blackwater series, but it didn't exactly knock my socks off. Maybe I was expecting a little more because Anne Rainey has written some of my favorite erotic romances. Maybe if it was a little longer or had a subplot going on I would've bumped it up a notch. Or maybe I'm just being ...more

Kitty's review posted on Guilty Pleasures

When Shayla turns up on Vance's doorstep after 12 years of being away nothing good could happen – according to Vance. He had it all figured out in his mind and had a very bitter taste in his mouth about the beautiful red-head that he opened the door to. What ...more

This one was really good. It was short as well only 11 chapters but it was good. Vance's one love that broke his heart 12 yrs ago is back. Shayla is a great character in the fact that she went from a scared young, abused woman to a strong, take what you want woman. She wants Vance back. There was a ...more
