Midnight Shadows

A Midnight Angel Short Story

Here's a little secret for you; Lisa Marie Rice is the author who got me hooked on Ellora's Cave Books. This story is a spinoff of book 3 of the Midnight Series, “Midnight Angel”. With a happy ending I was left imagining Doug and Allegra's idyllic life and this quick read set me straight. After the surgery that restored her sight Allegra is fragile but strong and healing. Unfortunately Doug hasn't got the memo yet that all is well with his wife's libido and she's about had it with his restraint. While the original book made a big deal about Doug's lack of looks, his body is another story and that is what is driving all the women at the resort the Kowalski's are staying at nuts. Including Allegra. Can she get Doug to remove the cotton batting and start treating her like a desirable woman?

Well not to wish bad things on people but it was kind of refreshing that all isn't unicorns and rainbows for the Kowalski's; makes me feel better about my life in general. Still considered in the newlywed stage the strain of

Allegra's recovery has everyone on edge, and when you throw in a little intrigue this short story was a nice addition to Doug and Allegra's love story now that the dynamic has changed with her vision added into the mix, with all the problems associated with her recovery. And the sex was even more important due to the emotions and time frame of denial. A good read.
