Sweeter than Sin


It could be said that Adam Brascum loved women.

It could be said.

But it would be off-target.  Adam didn’t love women—he didn’t hate them, but he didn’t love them, either.  He needed them.

The soft curves, the scent of their skin, the husky voices as they whispered to him in the night.  If he worked it right, he could spent the night with any number of them, and he wouldn’t have to be alone unless he wanted.

Wouldn’t have to be alone, with just the voices in his head, the memory of a phone call, the memory of a smile, the memory of the girl he might have been able to save.

If only he’d done something.

Now, years after, when it was far too late, he was doing something.  Drowning his sorrows between the thighs of just about any woman who would have him.

There had been a time when he’d drown his sorrows with a woman, along with the help of his good friend, Captain Morgan, or maybe some Jack Daniels, but that had all stopped on a cold wintry day.  He could still remember the soft, sad words spoken in his ear and at the foot of a grave, he’d made a promise.

He didn’t make them often, but when he did, he kept them.

So the booze was gone.

His only vice now was women.

Lately, though, that vice wasn’t doing it for him anymore.

He didn’t even know the name of the woman in bed next to him.  She was beautiful, a long, sleek woman maybe ten years older than him and she had left him feeling like she could put him through his paces for the rest of the night.  He’d slept maybe thirty minutes, her neck tucked against his chest, her hand resting on his stomach.

And then the nightmare hit.

He was standing in front of the house.

Just standing there.

It was dark.

It was cold.

The dimly lit windows mocked him.  If he moved any closer, the lights would go out, and he’d find nothing.

But he could hear her.  Her voice, whispering his name…

  1. Er that would be Deeper than Need by Shiloh Walker! And before that, Prey by Linda Howard. Looking forward to Sweeter than Sin.

  2. Not sure which order I read them so it would have been either deeper than Need or Red Hill. Thank you for the chance.

  3. I guess the last one would be Shooter by Dahlia West. I picked it up as a freebie on Kindle, and I was very pleasantly surprised!

  4. Hmmm, there have been a few that have crossed genres but the last one that I would consider fully romantic suspense was Give Me Grace by Kate McCarthy.

  5. I’ve actually not been reading romantic suspense… not intentional, just been in a pnr kick… ummm… have you tried Meg Gardiner? She has a great series that’s a few years old…

  6. I’ve been on a romantic suspense book binge for a few months now. I just finished “The Darkest Hour” by Maya Banks and am almost done reading “No Place To Run” the second book in her KGI series. Before these I read your “The Ash Trilogy” series and Lori Foster’s “Love Undercover” and “Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor” series.

  7. Hmmm. . . I am not sure if this counts as romantic suspense but I read Maya Banks ‘Wanted’ in one sitting yesterday and finished ‘Ugly Love’ by Colleen Hoover in one sitting over the weekend. I also have been reading a lot of paranormal romance and seem to be on a J.D.Tyler kick right now.

  8. I wasn’t sure which one was the last so i had to look on amazon to see what it considered Romantic Suspense. According to their definition it was Close Quarters by Rosie Rivera (love her books1).

  9. Symphony of Light and Winter by Renea Mason. Not finished yet but I’m looking forward to the next book 😉 ty
