Sacrifice - a Romance Novel
a romance story with a difference
An unusual romance story...which is a good thing.
It starts with Kat waking up drugged in an asylum. She can't think straight, and the nurse simply administers more sedatives. In dreams slash nightmares, she remembers bits from her father's funeral, crying, and her stepmother, Carol, giving her a tablet to calm her.
Jason, who her parents took in as a ward, rescues her. The story has many twists and turns. Apparently Kat had a teenage crush on Jason, then Jason's ex turns up. Throw in a murder attempt and lots of self-doubt, and you have the perfect romance novel.
Would Jason's sacrifice be enough for a Happy-Ever-After ending?
You'll have to read the story to find out.
A sexy suspense with lots of surprises!
This novel starts off with Kat in a very vulnerable situation: she wakes up in a strange room, with restraints on her arms and legs, feeling drugged, helpless, and without memories of what is going on. Honestly, this scene tugged on my heartstrings. The “medical” staff does nothing but keep Kat sedated. Why is this happening and what is she to do? This mystery slowly unfolds as the reader learns about Jason, who barges into her room on a mission. But who is Jason and why does he keep Kat at arms length? Ms. Santos does an excellent job of showing us just why Jason treads very carefully around Kat. And as an added bonus, the sexual attraction between them is off the charts! A highly recommended read!
A captivating quick read!
There is a lot of suspense, intrigue, and passion in less than 100 pages! It's a very enjoyable short story! It kept my attention throughout the book, and kept me guessing as to how the book would end. I look forward to reading more by this author!
A delightful romantic novella!
What a delightful romantic novella! It had me gripped from beginning to end. Author S.A. Santos packs a lot in 90 pages: passion, longing, danger, adventure and even the perfect honeymoon. Jason is a swoon-worthy hero as he strives to protect Kat while wrestling with his growing feelings for her. Kat is an endearing, brave heroine and their romance is tender, sexy and believable. The perfect read to brighten up the longer, darker evenings!
