"Not for the faint of heart! Shocking and terrifying, it will chill you to the bone." Tess Gerritsen
“A good, tense read.”

About the Author
I was born in Alabama, where my parents lived on my paternal grandmother's ancestral home place, a farm that is still owned by a member of the family. My upbringing was divided between Tuscumbia & Barton, Alabama and Chattanooga, Tennessee. I graduated high school from Chattanooga Central and then attended college at the University of North Alabama. I married young and traveled briefly with my husband, who served in the navy in the mid-to-late sixties. After my husband decided against a military career, we settled back in our home state of Alabama and started a family. First a daughter and then a son. I was "in my element" as a stay-at-home mother and I can truthfully say that I've loved every moment of motherhood. I enjoyed my children as babies, as toddlers, grade-schoolers, teenagers and now as adults.
Our children are both grown and out of college, with successful lives and good marriages. I always wanted four children and when my two kids married fabulous people, I finally got that second daughter and son. We have two young grandsons, who have brought tremendous joy into our growing-older world, and just this year, we were blessed with the birth of a beautiful granddaughter.
I sold my fist book in 1989 and it was released as a July 1990 Silhouette Desire. Yankee Lover was set in my hometown of Tuscumbia, Alabama, during the annual Helen Keller Festival. Since that first sale, I've written over sixty books for Silhouette and Kensington. My first mainstream romantic suspense, After Dark, was released in December 2000 under the Zebra imprint for Kensington. In the past seventeen years, I've gone from being one of the "new kids on the block" to one of the "old pros."

This is the second Beverly Barton book I have read with the same
characters, and I'm never going back there again.
Mind numbingly boring plot, and I lost interest reading
how much Reveand Jacob disliked each other. Did
not see the point of the descriptive sex scenes they didn't add
anything to the story. I noted that every man in the book was over
six foot tall, powerfully built with thrusting thighs and a glint in
their eyes, I must try booking a holiday there myself.
Will definitely not be reading Beverly Barton again.
However I do feel I have to comment on this book in particular due to it being littered with spelling mistakes and other issues.
Throughout the book there are spaces in the middle of words where there shouldn't be, it divides a word into sub words included with in it (i.e. together becomes to get her) which is quite annoying.
There was also one occasion where the letter I was displayed as the number 1.
However the worst error to note occurs in a scene where Reve and two male characters are having a meeting. At one point during this scene the author calls Reve by her sisters name.
In all honesty I felt a little let down by this book.
