Since her first publication in 1987, Nancy Gideon's writing career has been as versatile as the romance genre itself. This Portage, MI, author is a Top Ten Waldenbooks' bestseller for Silhouette, has written an award-winning vampire romance series and has had two original horror screenplays optioned for film. She received a Career Achievement Award for Historical Adventure and K.I.S.S. Hero awards from Romantic Times magazine and received RT nominations for Best North American Historical Romance and Best Historical Book in a Series and won a HOLT Medallion.Nancy's love of history, gift for storytelling and her background in journalism has helped to keep her focused. She begins her day at 4 a.m. while the rest of the family is still sleeping. Although the pace is often hectic, Nancy enjoys working on diverse projects-- probably because she's a Gemini. One month, it's researching the gritty existence of 1880s Texas Rangers, then it's back to the shadowy netherworlds of vampires and movie serial killers.As the mother of two almost-independent sons, Nancy spends her "spare time" cheering on her guys' hobbies of radio control airplanes, filmmaking and the restoration of a 1938 Plymouth Coupe. When not taking care of a menagerie of animals, including an aged Australian cattle dog, a lazy cat, a tankful of pampered fish and three African clawed frogs (adopted after a Scouting badge!), she works full-time as a legal assistant, setting depositions and plotting potential thrillers.Nancy loves to hear from her readers.

Bryce Simpson did the only thing he could. He spurned Marjorie Steel. Even though he’ll be living on her ranch, he is determined to stay away from her. She’s worthy of more than he can even think about giving, especially now that long-buried memories are surfacing and he’s learning that his father’s sins may go even deeper than he imagined.
Bryce’s rejection destroys Marjorie, and she descends to a dark place she thought she’d abandoned forever. She emerges stronger, though, and is determined not to let heartbreak rule her life. Change is the answer, she’s sure, so she makes plans—plans that include a handsome personal trainer she meets at the gym.
When Bryce and Marjorie are thrown together, though, their ravenous hunger for each other takes over, leaving both of them more vulnerable than they realize.
