Whiskey Creek Press – Torrid
Rating: 3 Cups
Despite the years that have gone by, Dr. Cassandra Vance cannot forget the one and only man she has ever loved, and who thoroughly crushed her heart.
Having finally survived the past several years of the worst heartache a man could endure, Ethan Vance has to make one last try to get Cass back.
Ethan betrayed her in the worst possible way, but just hearing his voice is enough to bring forth all the desire lying dormant in her soul. He swears to tell her the truth, but can she honestly trust anything he says, and does she want to? She has much more at stake now than just her heart.
Forgiveness does not mean forgetting, but is it enough for Cassandra to move past the hurt? The pain Ethan and Cass share is soul-deep, and reading their story gives you an intimate look into their hearts.
Touch of Fire
Dancing and family are the only things that kept Katherine O’Brien sane these past few years. Her ex- is in prison for life, and it is time she gets a life of her own.
Agent Benjamin MacDermott was Kat’s bodyguard during the trial that sent her abusive ex-husband to jail, and because of recent events, he will trust no one else to keep her safe.
This cannot be happening, but no matter how hard she prays, the past has caught up with her. Not only is her ex- on the loose, but now she has to contend with a man who stole her heart and then left without so much as a good-bye. Ben was her heart and soul, and no matter how hard she tried, she could not stop loving him.
This story is a glimpse into the life of a woman who is haunted and hunted by someone who once professed to love her. It gives the reader a taste of her fear, and her desire to regain her life.
These stories are certainly teasers, and give you just enough to have you looking for more. Smoldering Ember is full of remembered love scenes and past hurts, but while very well done in my opinion, they do not compare to “in the moment” action. Touch of Fire only hints at the past between its main characters, and leaves much to the imagination. These are both entertaining reads, but with more evolved storylines and characters, they could really shine.
