That is, until he meets Violet D’Allegra. Or rather, begins to tail her.
Violet is Will’s worst nightmare. She’s a notorious con artist who’s been seducing and blackmailing men up and down the California coast. Arrogant and beautiful, she’s stayed one step ahead of the law her entire life–and isn’t about to stop now.
Every night Will watches her set her trap. And every night he fights the urge to walk right into it.
But the question is: who’s tailing who?
Note: this is a short, quick-and-dirty novella. It’s a little twisted, and a lot dark, but still has a damn good HEA.
Will and Violet are similar creatures, they want similar things and, once they are with one another, realize that what they want is to figure out a way that they work. As the blurb mentions, they do actually figure this out.
This was a first novel by Kathryn Nolam and it was very well constructed. The writing is strong, and it flows well. The dialog sounds authentic, which is a pet peeve of mine when it isn't, so I really notice when it works. The story ARC, while quick as it was a novella, was also believable with pacing that worked for the story that was being told as well as the length.
I look forward to the next work by this author and I recommend this one.
