1001 Dark Nights

When Amber Watson walks in on her husband in the throes of extramarital passion with one of his employees, her comfortable, passion-free life is shattered in an instant. Worse, the fate of the successful country music bar that bears her family's name suddenly hangs in the balance. Her soon to be ex-husband is one of the bar's official owners, his mistress one of its employees. Will her divorce destroy her late father's legacy? Not if Amber's adopted brother, Caleb, has anything to do with it. The wandering cowboy has picked the perfect time for a homecoming. Better yet, he's determined to use his brains and his fists to put Amber's ex in his place and keep the family business intact. But Caleb's long absence has done nothing to dim the forbidden desire between him and the woman the State of Texas considers to be his sister. Years ago, when they were just teenagers, Caleb and Amber shared a passionate first kiss beside a moonlit lake. But that same night, tragedy claimed the life of Caleb's parents, and the handsome young man went from being a family friend to Amber's adopted brother. Has enough time passed for the two of them to throw off the roles Amber's father picked for them all those years ago? Will their desire for each other save the family business or put it in greater danger? Dance of Desire is the first contemporary romance from award-winning, New York Times best-selling author Christopher Rice, told with the author's trademark humor and heart. It also introduces listeners to a quirky and beautiful town in the Texas Hill Country called Chapel Springs. Please note: Dance of Desire contains fantasies of dubious consent, acted on by consenting adults. Listeners with sensitivities to those issues should be advised.
