Caress of Darkness:
A Dark Pleasures Novella
by Julie Kenner
From New York Times and International bestselling author Julie Kenner (aka J. Kenner)...
From the first moment I saw him, I knew that Rainer Engel was like no other man. Dangerously sexy and darkly mysterious, he both enticed me and terrified me. I wanted to run-to fight against the heat that was building between us-but there was nowhere to go. I needed his help as much as I needed his touch. And so help me, I knew that I would do anything he asked in order to have both. But even as our passion burned hot, the secrets in Raine's past reached out to destroy us ... and we would both have to make the greatest sacrifice to find a love that would last forever.

J.K. lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and several cats.
From the moment they set eyes on each other, Raine and Callie feel it surround them, drive them to each other, and finally consume them. Raine is a mysterious man who fills the room with his command and his aura of warmth and safety. Callie can hardly control herself just having met this stranger, from curling up in his arms and share her father's untimely illness. From that moment on, these two are entwined.
Callie is in the process of packing her father's antique shop after he suffered a stroke. There are life decisions to make - close the store, arrange for a long term care facility to transfer her father to closer to her home, and returning to work as an assistant district attorney in Texas. Never did she anticipate being in a situation where her father would be in need of constant care.
Raine has had a long term relationship with Callie's father, as a customer of the antique shop. Searching for a certain amulet has brought them together. Now with Callie's father unable to talk, Raine can only wonder if the amulet will be found.
This story grips you with its complexity and promise of a thrilling journey of discovery. There are thrilling adventures I can visualize as they search for the amulet and this love affair flourishes. Is this the great beginning to a notable series?
