When the opportunity for revenge presents itself, a woman realizes that revenge may not always be sweet.
The Second Time Around
Kassie McAlister has it all. She's a bestselling romance author and can have any woman she wants. Kassie has never been one for commitment and enjoys her life just the way it is. The only barrier to total bliss is book reviewer, Shondra Williams, who seems to have a personal vendetta against her.
When Kassie decides to spend a couple of weeks in Florida, the last person she ever expects to run into is Shondra. Kassie fantasizes that the perfect revenge is to seduce the woman, then leave her out in the cold. When Shondra shows her a softer vulnerable side, she wonders if she can go through with it, especially after Shondra shares a secret with her that forces Kassie to look deep within herself.
Shondra wished Kassie wouldn't stare so intently at her. She wanted to despise her, but she couldn't. After all, Kassie had done nothing to her that she hadn't asked her to do. Maybe her anger was misdirected. She should place her anger where it belonged…at her own feet. She had to come to terms with the truth. Kassie had captured her heart in the blink of an eye and it scared the hell out of her. She'd always been strong and in control of her emotions, but Kassie made her feel like a bumbling lovesick teenager. Her heart was breaking because she couldn’t have the one woman who made her feel alive. Why would Kassie want her anyway? Kassie could have her pick of women. She had a charm that didn't even take any effort on her part to make a woman succumb to her. Shondra wondered if Kassie was even aware of that fact. She swallowed hard. She had to come clean and tell her everything.
