In a stirring, sensual novel from Sandra Chastain, high-school sweethearts reunite—only now the stakes are higher and the tension is off the charts.
“Meet me at our place at midnight,” the note says, just like when they were kids. But Katherine Sinclair isn’t seventeen anymore, and she knows firsthand the dangers of trusting Danny Dark. Ten years ago, he stood her up after graduation, leaving Katherine alone, confused—and pregnant. Giving the baby up for adoption allowed her to go to college and eventually become mayor of Dark River. Seeing Danny again means risking everything—even if his raw masculine presence still gives her chills.
Dan is no longer the bad boy everyone in town remembers. But when he lays eyes on the beautiful blond mayor, suddenly Dan Dark, globe-trotting hot shot, becomes Danny again. And in his heart, he realizes that Katherine Sinclair is still Danny’s girl. But Katherine has been keeping a secret that will test the depth of his love: She’s raising the son Dan never knew about, following the death of his adoptive parents. And now Katherine doesn’t need a bad boy in her life. She needs a powerful, passionate, full-grown man.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Trying to Score, Long Simmering Spring, and Scarlet Lady.
About Sandra Chastain
As a child I made up fantasy lives for my paper dolls, never knowing that I would use these same creative skills later as a writer. I only knew that I became those dolls and lived their lives. Later came amateur stage shows for the neighborhood children to perform, my first Nancy Drew mystery, a one-act play, and finally a musical performed by high school students on an auditorium stage. From the Indian tepee that Santa brought when I was a ten-year-old, to the living room I've recently converted into my office, I'm still stretching the boundaries of my imagination.
After twenty years of working together, my husband and I sold our small-animal veterinary practice. Now he consults and practices part-time while I write full-time. Our three daughters are married, and we have grandchildren who always want Gran to tell them a story. And Gran always complies.
I wouldn't change a thing about my life, for my family is a living expression of the love I write about. When I create a romance for you, I'm telling stories of love and commitment, and I can't tell you how much pleasure I get from writing about happily ever after.
