From the #1 Amazon best-selling anthology
She is a lonely spinster prepared to bid her dreams of passion farewell. He is a war-weary soldier who seeks shelter in a woman's desire. They strike a bargain to fulfill each others most erotic fantasies....only to discover that passion is as life-altering as the storm that brings them together.

"Authors you may enjoy after reading the phenomena of Fifty Shades of Grey [are] Robin Schone...his is true historical erotica." (Sue Grimshaw, Romance at Random)
"Intimate, emotional and fulfilling." (The Romance Reader)
"Emotionally believable." (Salon.com)
I love Robin Schone and have read all I have encountered; she is different and not gratuitous.
She explores the human condition like no other. Her characters are not overly beautiful and are mature and have flaws like all of us but Robert would do for me any day of the week!
I first encountered this story in a compilation in which Robin came out tops, so I was delighted when I found this on Audible.
I easily adjusted to Victoria McGloven's voice and found her to be excellent throughout.
If only 'The Lover' and 'Gabriel' was on Audible and all her others that I have enjoyed and still have in my library.
I loved it!!
"Great Character Development & Plot for Erotica"
I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of character development and plot that went into this short story erotica. And it was all done w/o the "F" word. Kudos to the author. The narrator did all the voices quite well especially the male and female main characters. I don't usually re-listen to stories but I think after awhile I might give this one a re-listen. The plot and narrator were that good. Well done.
"Very near PERFECT!"
If you like a hot steamy romance that is somewhat believable, this is book is perfect. The introductory scene and how they got to the steamy part is a little hard to believe, but everything falls in line perfectly after that. The narrator is also very good.
Definitely worth the cost or the credit. EXCELLENT!
