    It's free - time well spent. The last page I felt was hurried, but other than that, liked the main character's. Yes it is short, but like another reviewer stated - short and sweet.

    Enjoyed

    I liked the short story, but even more, I enjoyed the two previews. So much so that I bought them so that I could finish reading them. I love Ms. Ryan's writing style. Can't wait to get back to these books.

    Very well done. For as wild (and sexually blatant) a set of circumstances, characters were well motivated....I believed they'd do what they did. Incredible characterization. Kudos to Patricia Ryan for this compelling short.
