This has everything I love in a story of any length. Smart characters who do brave things because it's part of who they are, and an unstable villain who has a reason for going a little crazy. Throw in the very realistic danger and the wonderful ending, and this is a reader's gem. Because of its short length and the enjoyment it gave me, I know I'm going to read this at least a few times.

Another amazing story about Susanna Horenbout and John Parker.
Dangerous Sanctuary is a short story set between the first book, In a Treachrous Court, and the second book, Keeper of the King's Secrets.

This was a fun short story about Parker and Susanna from In a Treacherous Court!

I love this author's work but this very short story does not add to the series in the least.
I really enjoyed this little novella about Susanna and John! A great interlude to keep fans of the series (and the couple) happy before reading book 2, Keeper of the King's Secrets. Definitely made me that much more anxious to begin the next book as soon as possible.

Fans will enjoy this as just one more small reason to love Susanna and John's story.

I totally love this series. I found it quite by accident and have devoured every book since. This was a lovely short story. I am so looking forward to the next book.
