Being high maintenance and demanding a lot just for her attention was her ploy to dissuade men from perusing her. The more money hoops she made them jump through the less the wanted to pursue her.

Yet, one of her seductive dances gives her a secret of life and death and she realizes she needs to lay low or end up like her customer – dead.

  1. i loved Dark Facade and i am dying to read the remaining part, so please finish it soon.

  2. Ms Sylvia
    I know you have been a very busy woman but when are you going to finish the rest of work in progress books because I need a Heart fix. I have read all of your books except for Stealing Innocence II The Ravishment. And still haven’t figure out what the feud between the Hearts of Detriot and the Heats of Chicago.

  3. Dear Sylvia, are you ever going to finish writing A Little Bit of Sin Won’t Hurt. I am falling off the edge of my seat with that story line. What will happen with Mark and his “secret” society that he has joined besides the KKK? Will he get out of it by paying off his debt? What is going to happen with Colin and Syn? Please finish the book.
