4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Quick Read March 11, 2012
By Bukcrz
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For once, a short story almost matched a full length novel in delivering a gripping story. An emotionally wounded hero drowning in misplaced guilt and a steadfast loving heroine in the rescue. Surprisingly, even the character development is convincing in such a short story.
It is a fast paced story yet telling in everry word the author used. Well written and for me it worked to make me care and want to see the hero and heroine live HEA. I would definitely check other books from this author.
Four star because of the heroine's almost willingness to be treated harshly just because she "guessed/assumed" that the hero's harshness is because he is hurting.

4.0 out of 5 stars short for the price July 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Like the previous reviewers said, it was EXTREMELY well written. You did feel you knew the characters and their whys and whynots. But it took me less than 15 minutes to read the story. While it was well written, if you're a fast reader like me, $3 is a high price for 15 minutes of enjoyment. For $2 more read Deadlands Hunt, also written by Gayla Drummond and get the full experience of one of her excellent stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sweet erotic romance February 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nik's first wife died in childbirth. Nik loved her but they didn't have a good relationship. She didn't enjoy the physical aspects of marriage and that killed Nik's self-confidence.

Sirene has been in love with Nik since she first saw him 3 years ago. She went through the heartbreak of watching him marry and then lose his first wife. Now she is thrilled to be contracted as his bride.

This is an erotic romance and it's a very sweet romance. My only complaint is that it ended too soon. I wanted to see their relationship develop. This could definitely be a full length book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read!!! 4.5!!! February 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The only reason this story didn't get five stars from me was because I wanted just a little more at the end. A story of a tortured man and a woman trying to help him love again is always a favorite of mine. Although the author eluded to where their relationship was going to head, I would have loved a little bit more to solidify a HEA ending. I was impressed with the simple plot and nice writing. I would have just loved 5-10 more pages of closure. Loved it anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot, sweet love story November 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is obviously set in an alternate universe, and gives an unusual context for a missed love connection that is then unexpectedly requited. Drummond does a great job of making the damaged hero come alive and grow in the very short scope of the novella, and the pay-off at the end will make every romantic drool. :)
