Beneath the Light of a Silver Moon

I've had permission to post this unedited blurb for my short contemporary story, Beneath the Light of a Silver Moon, that is one of a collection of thirteen shorts from Momentum's Hot Down Under erotic line. This story is probably one of my 'sweetest' yet (perhaps because it isn't paranormal) - though it still has some dark tones. It's one of the first five that will be released in November - can't wait!!  Hope to see the cover soon and will post when I can =))

Kristen Treymore isn't living, she's existing, stuck in a marriage to protect her stepdaughter from Jack, an alcoholic who uses his fists to communicate. When Conrad Doyle, childhood friend and the man whose heart she unwittingly broke, shows up on her doorstep and offers her a lifeline, she can't refuse.
What she never dreams possible is how much she still wants him--but is that enough to keep them together when terror still beats deep in her heart?

Big congrats, Mel. Look forward to it coming out. LOL, but I'm having trouble picturing you writing non-paranormal. :)
