Are you ready for a collection of four super-hot romances that will leave you burning with great desire? Then go pick up your copy of Eden Baylee’s Fall into Winter.
“Seduced by the Blues”
When it came to dating younger men, Ella Jamison always had a love ‘em and leave ‘em type of attitude. So why did she find it difficult to quickly end things with John Cook – her current boy toy who was twelve years her junior?
John Cook was a man of action. He was not afraid to go after what he wanted, and he wanted Ella Jamison with a burning passion. Will he be able to convince her that age wasn’t nothing but a number and that they were perfect for each other?
There is nothing like a determined man. Wow! John had me wishing that I was in Ella’s shoes. His seduction skills were charming, resolute and oh, so alpha-like. No wonder Ella was hot for him regardless of their age difference.
Stella Christy and Norman Desmond had been in a relationship for a little over a year. Each sexual encounter between them was in a Queen/King role play with lots of BDSM action. Always eager to try something new, Stella suggested a ménage a trios between her, Norman and a trusted third guy. Will Norman, a very jealous type of man, be open to Stella’s new fantasy idea or has Stella bitten off more than she can chew?
If you are into a little BDSM play with a twister thrown into the mix then, “Act Three” is just the story for you. I must admit that Ms. Baylee had me going for awhile not sure of the outcome with a few petrifying moments. I must say, that I was pleasantly shocked. I don’t want to say too much and give away the plot, so you will have to pick up a copy to discover just what I am talking about.
With hopes of overcoming her writer’s block, Leah Jones barricaded herself into a remote cabin determined to finish her latest book during the Christmas holiday. What Leah didn’t plan on was to instantly fall for a handsome stranger who reminded her of a lost love from her past. Will Leah take a chance on a happily-ever-after future with a handsome Norwegian by the name of Henrik Kristiansen, or will she remain stuck in the past, alone with only memories to keep her warm?
Out of the four tales, “The Norwegian” was the most heartfelt story. I truly admired Leah and how she dealt with the tragic curve ball life had thrown her. She just needed Henrik to open her eyes to a second chance at love. The journey proved to be a difficult one and I wasn’t sure if Leah was willing to let go of the past. Nevertheless, Henrik refused to give up on the treasure that he found in Leah. This is one story not to be missed.
“The Austrian and the Asian”
Ten years ago while on vacation in Austria, Elena Lee had an epigrammatic but scorching love affair with Stefan Georges. Despite the fact that she had moved on in life, Elena never forgot what she had shared with Stefan. Because so many years had passed without any form of communication between them, Elena knew that she had lost her one true love—or so she thought. Once again in Austria, Elena was reunited with Stefan. Will she be able to walk away the second time around?
By far, “The Austrian and the Asian” was the longest tale told. Yet, without the detailed length, the plot would have been lost. It was amazing to see how a true passion shared among a couple over ten years ago never really lost its burning desire within. The heat between Elena and Stefan was hot and oh so sweet.
Eden Baylee’s debut novel Fall into Winter was simply an incredible read and I am honored to bestow it as a Joyfully Reviewed Recommended Read. While common elements unified all four stories, each one was a unique, standalone tale that I enjoyed reading from start to finish. Ms. Baylee is definitely one author that you will want to check out. Enjoy!
