Heide Katros" Vanessa, you would love Sting by Sandra Brown. This novel has more switchbacks than the Swiss Alps and heats up in the end like the Louisiana bayous, where the novel plays. Also worth reading are Breaking the Contract and Seducing theDefendant by Chantal Fernando

message 22: by Greg (new)

Greg Darn! I was hoping for "forbidden love" down in "mysterious cellars" with "secret pacts" with a small side of "morbid humor" and absolutely NO "sibling relationships" cause my siblings voted for...well, you know who. Why, oh, why, does no one write a book for me?
