Readers first met Rob Thorton in Couper’s “Triple Dare”, part of the Red Hot Winter anthology. He did not seem as affable there as in this story. Rob, a thrill-seeker, is more mature and vulnerable and ready to take risks on important things like love. Couper creates a strong set of primary and secondary characters wrapped in a fast-paced story. The loves scenes are sensual, inventive and emotionally charged.
