    A good start to an interesting story

    A little shorter than i hoped but an interesting read none the less. Some key elements of the plot could have used a little flushing out to make for a stronger story. Good characters and spirited dialog make this novella a decent afternoon read. Would love to see more from this author.

    Short but powerful. Loved it!

    This book isn't very long but I was suprised by how much I loved the characters by the end. The hero and heroine had a complicated history together and issues they needed to work through. And the ending! Wow, I didn't see that coming. Great writing and great romance at a very low price. I can't recommend this book enough.
