Tobi's Review
Sarah Jennings wants nothing more than a quiet life--alone.
Raised by an eccentric mother, their life on the road only taught her how to run away from hard times. When she finds herself in an abusive relationship, this lesson serves her well. 

Eight years later, she’s settled back in her hometown and less fearful than she’s ever been in her life. She’s a first grade teacher, and with few friends and less family around, she has what she wants, a quiet life under the radar where she can be free of her past and live quietly. Until one night and one brutal act of violence changes everything. 

Injured and afraid, Sarah wants to run again, but Mark Summors refuses to let her go.

Mark was born and raised in Santa Rosa. He married his high school sweetheart and never questioned his life, until he found his wife with another man. Now divorced, he wants something more. He's passionate about his job, he wants to protect people, and he devotes his life to it. This time he's protecting more than just another client, he's protecting his future; at least, Sarah Jennings will be his future, once he convinces her she loves him.

When Sarah agrees to let Mark help, she doesn’t anticipate just how important of a role he’ll play in her future or how the violence in her past will come back to threaten them both.

Dangerous Embrace Playlist!
Like many other writers, I love to listen to music while I write. All of my stories have a playlist that fit the story and inspired me while I crafted the plot. Sometimes it’s an emotional reaction to the music that’s inspiring and sometimes it’s the lyrics. Below is my playlist for Dangerous Embrace. This list was built up slowly as I wrote each chapter. Every song has a place in the story and a theme that fits somewhere. . .at least in my eyes and ears. It a wide range of music, but that just provides even greater inspiration. If you want greater detail into the songs and where they inspired me within the story, you should follow my Dangerous Embrace Playlist series.
