About the Book
Category: Romantic Mystery/Romantic Suspense. This is not erotica or romantica. This is a romance centered around a murder mystery.
Heat Factor: 3 out of 5 — The sexual tension is high, and the burn is slow. Sex is character-driven, rather than plot-driven.
Love, betrayal and murder in a small town….
Twelve years after her mother’s murder, Shannon Bradford fears she may have helped convict an innocent man. Even worse, her prominent family may have had something to do with it. Desperate for answers, she seeks help from the one person least likely to give it. Her best friend and childhood crush, Trace Dawson. The man she sent to prison.
Serving hard time for murder has left Trace angry and bitter. As far as he’s concerned, digging into the past won’t replace the years he’s lost or erase the hell he’s lived. Now that he’s free, Shannon Bradford tops his list of bad memories. But he never counted on falling in love.
Set in a sleepy little town during the dead of winter, this award-winning romance novel is a tale of one woman’s quest for truth and a man’s struggle to forgive.
Within Temptation is intriguing, complex, gritty, edgy, full of suspense and mystery, secrets, romance. Gripping, compelling, at times intense, sexy and romantic novel.
This novel is an amazingly perfect blend of mystery, suspense and romance. Trace and Shannon´s story has marvelous layers that were perfectly written. Each one of them pulled me in deeper and deeper and kept me guessing. I was constantly on my toes. I just wanted to know what will happen next and just kept reading and reading and there was no way to stop. I had to read it in one sitting.
Simply said, Within Temptation has it all.
Looking forward to read the next book.
