This was a erotic romantic mystery I'd had sitting on my Kindle for a while and I decided to read it. Although it's from 2009, it has a 1970s Old Skool romance feel.

He was going to have to get through this evening. And probably a few others evenings after this one. Asking her out to dinner-out on dates-was necessary. There had to be something between meeting her and having sex. He couldn't just say, "Let's go to bed." It didn't work that way, not with ladies.


Sex with John has been nothing at all like that. It had been earth shattering, so intense she had thought she would faint while climaxing. She'd barely slept since then and had hardly eaten. That wasn't at all what modern sex was about. Modern sex was about flirting and keeping it cool.


Some primitive instinct told her that in calling John to come to her aid, she'd crossed a dangerous, invisible line. She'd given herself over to his care. She'd given herself over to him.
Something important had changed.


They were bound by the most ancient law of all. 
He had fought and killed for her. She was his.


  1. Oh, I like that last quote. It had a very Alpha/Caveman feel to it. Was this a paranormal?

    1. No, it's a contemporary erotic romantic suspense.

  2. The third quote gave me the shivers. Good shivers.

  3. Hmm interestin. I've read some of her newer ones and really enjoyed one of them--light para kinda deal. That last quote. I'm kinda liking that for some reason.

  4. Well... ahem... some nice quotes there!! Thanks for sharing Bea!
