Book Summary:

I’d thought that he was mine, the dark, arresting man who commanded not only my body but my heart. Dante had swept into my life, and I’d succumbed to the burn of passion in his arms.

I’d believed we had a love that would last forever, but he’d shattered my dreams and broken me into pieces when he’d walked away, taking a piece of my soul with him.

Now he has come back seeking my help, and though I try to keep my distance and protect my heart, I cannot deny that the fire between us burns hotter than ever. And I cannot help but fear that this time our passion will reduce us both to ashes.


Ahhhhh, these books are the only time that jumping into a fire sound inviting. Although the heat you feel from this novella isn’t from the Phoenix fire. Dante and Brenna have been separated for thirteen years and they have a lot of catching up to do. As you’d expect, the chemistry between them hasn’t been forgotten and the sparks fly between them.

I love love love these short novellas from Julie. She quickly transports you to another world, and then hits you over the head with an adorable sweet love story. There isn’t long, drawn out he-said-she-said shit that drags out for ages. You want them together? You fucking get them together. You want the next piece of the story? IT’S RIGHT THERE, TURN THE PAGE. I loved it!

Caress of Darkness is a great addition to this series. It’s filled with love, drama, and that J. Kenner heat that you’ve come to expect. Great read!
