Overview

Dane Harley grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, a foster kid with no true home and no direction. In her last year of high school, she met John Stratton, a Pittsburgh rich kid with a penchant for trouble. When they both ended up in jail for petty theft, Dane realized she'd been dragging John down. She left town in hopes that he'd have a better life without her. Ten years later, Dane is a social worker devoted to placing foster kids in stable, nurturing homes. She returns to Pittsburgh two weeks before her ten-year reunion to reconnect with her childhood friend, Roxy Jordan. While reminiscing about their high school days as goth-girls, Roxy reminds Dane of her turbulent relationship with John and their messy break-up. Dane decides to get in touch with her first love again, with disastrous results. When a pretty young woman answers at his door, Dane knows he's moved on. Perhaps John hasn't exactly been holding his breath for her return, but he can't resist the allure of Dane and their subsequent affair speaks of the torrent of passion and love that still ties them together. Will they be able to reconcile their past and have a future? Or will Dane accept the inevitable and settle for a life without him... [Genres: Contemporary / Exhibitionism / Public Places]

Whoa. Where is the John Stratton of my youth?

The man at her door was completely at odds with the memory of a high school rebel in biker boots and skull jacket. Now, standing before her was a ruggedly handsome stranger, clad in a black, fitted leather jacket and dark jeans, that made her want to salivate.

"Dane," he let out in a husky voice. John's expression changed from surprise to anger to something she couldn't decipher before he took one quick step forward, cupped her face in his palms and planted a kiss on her that made her feel like the Greenhouse Effect had zeroed in on them. Heat spread through her body, fanned by the flames of memories until they soared higher and higher, until she was swept away by the blistering sorrow of her past.

Swirls of emotion drowned out all thought and she was left breathless from that one explosive kiss.

This was not the reception she had imagined. Yet Dane couldn't help clinging onto him, unable to pull herself away. She melted into his arms like a love-struck teenager trying to hold onto the last shred of her youth. Even when he plunged his tongue deeper into her mouth, she only accepted it greedily, wrapping her arms tighter around his neck and pulling him even closer. She wanted more. She wanted to forget the world around her and allow John to take her back to that time when nothing could touch them...
