Well this was a nice surprise.  With a short story under 80 pages it sure packs a punch and leaves you with your butt on the edge of your seat and your mouth hanging open.  Lilly has lived the last few years in terror after finding her mother’s body.  The nightmares of blood and open wounds have haunted her, but she still tries to go on in life while fearing her very existence.  Being engaged to a man, who I could best describe as a shell of a human, she isn’t happy.  Having another man who was arranged by her rich father after her, she is determined to give him a clear message, they will never be together.
One night  at a party in honor of her mother she is rescued by Torren and the sparks fly, but there is more to him than she even realizes.  He helps her find the man who killed her mother. He should be in jail, but he was offered a chance at the witness protection until he skipped out.  Lilly had never felt her mother got the justice she deserved and she was willing to carry that justice out.   She doesn’t get the satisfaction she craved; instead she got answers as to who was behind her mother’s death.  Shocked and in great heartache she goes after the one who was responsible and this is where we are left in this book.
For a  short story that was a quick read it packed a great deal of suspense, action and drama in between the pages.  Once I started it I couldn’t put it down and had it read in a couple of hours. The characters were easy to relate to, follow and invest in.  If you don’t mind cliff hanger after cliff hanger I would highly recommend this series.  I am not a fan of having to purchase multiple short stories to find out the answers, but this one is an exception for me.
