Cherished author Sandra Chastain offers readers a searing story of love and promise, danger and desire.
Dr. Nikolai Sandor has sworn off caring for patients. It’s all research, all the time for him now. But after taking a call he can’t ignore, Niko finds himself at the bedside of a woman who had attempted to take her own life . . . and now refuses to wake from her twilight state. Niko is drawn to the angelic woman, to her peaceful face. When he touches her hand and whispers to her of love and passion, he senses she is aware of his presence. He must wake her—even if it means believing in a romance that might never begin.
Karen Miller doesn’t want to wake up. She wants to be alone with her pain, in the darkness of her deepest sleep. But she can’t ignore that voice, low and seductive. Who is this man, this tempter at her bedside? Is he real? His sensual whispering has penetrated Karen’s safe haven, creating an intimacy she’d never known before. But if she opens her eyes, will she ever be safe again?
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: Flirting with Disaster, Taking Shots, and Long Simmering Spring.
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. --Sandra Chastain
