CAN'T FORGET THE PAIN
It took years for Adam to stop drowning his regrets in alcohol, and running the local bar doesn't make it any easier-especially not when everyone he knows gathers there to discuss the shocking allegations that have shattered his hometown. When another murder rocks sleepy Madison to its core, it becomes chillingly clear that even more vicious wounds are waiting to be exposed.
WON'T RESIST THE PLEASURE
Nothing is sacred anymore, and no one is safe, least of all the mystery woman who shows up in town out of the blue, looking like every fantasy Adam's ever had. She may have her own dangerous secrets, but she can't ignore the urgent heat between them any more than he can. As a killer's quest for vengeance explodes into violence, Adam is tempted to lose himself in the delicious promise of her body-until he realizes he'll risk anything if she'll give him her heart...in Sweeter than Sin by Shiloh Walker.
"Shiloh Walker's writing just gets better and better...[and] the sex is sizzling." -RT Book Reviews
Walker's second Secrets & Shadows romantic thriller (after Deeper than Need) advances the story arc of a small town's secrets coming to light, but it shortchanges the reader on both romance and suspense. Lana Rossi began her decades-long self-imposed exile from Madison, Ind., after a failed attempt to publicize the heinous activities of the Cronus Club resulted in a night of discoveries and death. New developments lure her back to see her father, and she soon runs into Adam Brascum, who fell for the passionate Lana when they were in their teens. Shortly after her incognito return, Adam invites her to stay with him and confide in him. More deaths of several members of the notorious club affect other townsfolk, including Noah, Lana's first love, who's now planning his wedding to another woman. Awkward pacing and perfunctory romantic development are only slightly offset by a significant reveal.
