Cover artist is April Martinez. I think she did a great job combining spooky, sensual and romantic all at the same time. Whadaya think? I’m lovin’ it.
Eight years ago, Crainesian teenager Zeenie LaShey was drugged and violated by a man wearing a hideous Halloween mask. She’s worked hard to rebuild her life and is ready to re-enter the world of dating. But Turk Fontaine, with his good looks, charm and endless one-night stands, isn’t anywhere close to the gentle, kind man she’s looking for in a life mate–even if his very presence does make her so hot and bothered she can’t concentrate..
For five long years, Turk has remained on the periphery of Zeenie’s life, distant and aloof, waiting for her to claim him as her life mate. Now it seems the playboy lifestyle he cultivated to keep his dates casual is backfiring. Believing him incapable of commitment and fidelity, Zeenie can’t envision them performing the tender, sensual joining ritual that would entwine their hearts and minds for a lifetime of love.
To Zeenie’s surprise, there’s more than meets the eye with the patient and determined Turk. She finds herself deeply attracted on many levels to the man who’s teaching her to embrace her sensual side. But the custom of their people is for the woman to claim the male. Her inability to do so years earlier caused Turk a great deal of embarrassment. In order to make amends, Zeenie must reach deep inside herself and let love provide the courage she needs to become the aggressor and, in a grand and public display, claim Turk as her life mate.
