Seductive. Addictive. Captivating.
The irresistible heroes in these stories have those three features in common.
Some stories are second chance; others are fated love. But every single one of them, you’ll crave to the last page.
This is a collection of tales published by Willow Winters but no longer available. These stories touched my heart, but were exclusive at the time so if you didn’t snag them then, they were lost to you forever.
I wanted to make sure you could read all of my work and now you can. Happy reading, xx
The stories available in this collection are:
Infatuation, the first novella in the USA Today best-selling bundle, Drawn to Him.
Desires in the Night and Keeping Secrets, both shorts published in exclusive bundles with best-selling author Adriana Locke.
Bad Boy Next Door, a novella I wrote years ago that I still often think about. The damaged hero and second chance love in this romance is one I wish I could go back to often. It’s the final tale included in this collection for a total of 4 stories not available anywhere else!
I’ve never reviewed a short story. Let alone a collection of them. I’m going to keep this short and sweet because I don’t want to ruin anything about any of the stories. Don’t Let Go was a delightful little collection of stories, and I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t incredibly interested in reading more books in a couple of those worlds.
By far and away, Infatuation was my favorite story. A love story rooted in tradition and superstition always pulls me in. The intrigue of what was going on below the surface, all the secrets and innuendos completely won me over. I am dying to know more about the Kulls and everything going on in Ketchikan.
Desires in the Night was one ridiculously erotic scene. It was titillating and hot; I loved that explored a little bit of the darkness most people deny inside themselves. There was still enough emotion regarding the pasts of Valarie and Alex that I felt an emotional connection to them and I wouldn’t be upset if we got a full-length story about them, because I have SO many questions about Valarie’s disdain for Alex’s hometown.
I said Infatuation was my favorite story, and it was, but that likely had to do with the fact it was one of the longest stories in the book because Keeping Secrets is the kind of story that ALWAYS calls to my heart — broken girl, damaged veteran, second-chance romance. It really ticks all my boxes. I just wanted more of it. The story was complete, and I didn’t feel dissatisfied with the experience, I just would have loved living in their love for a lot longer.
Bad Boy Next door was the only story I didn’t feel myself wanting to live in. It was a good story, and all of the romantic elements I love were there, but I didn’t connect with it as deeply as I did the three other stories. It was a sweet, moving story, but I think I was complete as a short story. Adding more would have taken away from what it was. I loved Catherine and Ryker, and I was pleased with their story.
Don’t Let Go needs a little editing. There weren’t a ton of issues, but the ones that were there were glaring. Typos, incorrect apostrophe usage, and most obvious was the change of spelling of one of the character’s names. At the beginning of Desires in the Night Valarie was spelled with two As, but somewhere in the middle it got switched to an A and an E. Another editing pass could quickly clean up these few problems.
Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Bestselling Romance Author. She likes her action hot and her bad boys hotter. She certainly doesn’t hold back on either one in her writing!
Willow started writing after having her little girl, Evie, December 2015. All during her pregnancy with Evie she continued to read and she only wanted to read romance. She was reading a book a day — sometimes two.
In January 2016 Willow was staying up late with Evie and just thinking of all these stories. They came to her constantly so she finally sat down and just started writing. She always wanted to do it so she figured, why not? Today Willow cannot be happier for making that decision!
