The bad guy never gets the girl.
In the eyes of the law, I’ve paid for my youthful mistakes but I know I can never undo the damage I’ve caused. When I stepped out of my cell, I vowed to live a good life, make the right choices, and avoid temptation at all costs.
She’s not a choice, she’s a compulsion. A craving. A beautiful, brave heroine who walked straight off the pages of the comic books I create and into my life with the superpower of making me believe I could be the man she deserves.
But I’m not.
She wants to tell the world about us this Christmas, including her father—my boss. But before she does, I need to tell her the truth.
Can I possibly stay her hero when she finds out that I used to be the villain?
*Originally a short in the Mistletoe Over Manhattan Anthology and now expanded to more than double the story.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
It is no secret that I am BIG Stephanie Rose fan. So getting to see the next generation of her original characters all grown up was a true treat. And yes, all the parents make an appearance!
I really liked Victoria. I saw so much of her parents in her. Her strength. Her kindness. Her take no prisoners attitude. Her tender heart that yearned for Anthony. Oh my goodness Anthony!! That man, and he is indeed all man, was her perfect match in every way. If only he would stop letting his fear and insecurity get in his way.
Stephanie Rose had me laughing and swooning and wanting to throw my kindle in equal doses while reading Pining. Victoria and Anthony's work-place romance was full of family and humor, heat and forgiveness. And that ending, I like that it was really just the beginning.
