"SO hot and SO unique!" ~Golden Angel, author of the Stronghold series
From the Author
As Flame to Smoke
first appeared in the Darker Side of Love
anthology in 2015. I've since given the prose a facelift, and now here it is to stand on its own. The writing of this novella marked a turning point in my constant inner battle between wanting everyone to like me, and not wanting to censor myself.
It's also unique in that it might be the only story (aside from The Decline and Fall of Rowland Graves
, depending on how a reader wants to look at it) that I've written from the point of view of the antagonist. Can you root for a villain?
