Why I don’t read more modern fiction? Definitely one of my all-time favorites and a must re-read every couple vann years, even though I’ve pretty much memorized the key scenes by now both the flawless action sequences and the original sex scenes. A frustrating year after being hired, Carpenter left for not being able to produce a workable draft.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a review. And there, perhaps, is where Vab was most disappointed. I approach the book now like one should most Best Sellers and read it for entertainment.

Your display name should be at least 2 characters long. The local police are baffled and consult Nicholas as he is known to be an authority on oriental studies.

She licked at his neck as he used his hands on her, all over, increasing her pleasure, riding high within her, and at the end, when she found the tension almost unbearable, when the sweat and the saliva ran down her arms and between her breasts, pooling in her navel, when his frictioning against her was so intense that it took on a kind of third dimension, she used her inner muscles once, twice, heard him gasp, felt herself balancing on the brink, the thudding of their hearts heavy in her inner ear, whispering to him, “Come, darling, come — ohhh!
