Stephen Trent was sure of it. His editor was punishing him. What could there be for him to investigate at the Penitent Compound in Pennsylvania? The residents live a very simple life of abstinence and strict gender separation. And he is really having a hard time taking the whole assignment seriously. But when he spots (and can’t take his eyes off of) a young woman in the dining hall, he decides this assignment might not be so bad. Why does she seem so familiar to him?

Beth Cordova has been hiding a very big secret for ten years—herself. The world thinks she’s dead and that’s exactly what she wants them to think. If she is ever found, her stepmother will kill her. The Penitent Compound has been the perfect place for her. The seven Founders of the Compound have been more than happy to have her there. One of them even more so than the others.

Beth’s identity is in danger of being revealed by the man she can’t stay away from. Stephen discovers more than just Beth’s identity, there is more to the Penitents than meets the eye. He has to get Beth out before it’s too late because banishment is not what it sounds like.  And it seems that her stepmother knows where to find her.

As soon as I got CRAVE: The Seduction of Snow White I started reading and I couldn’t put it down. I have always loved fairy tales and would read them over and over when I was a kid. I was always delighted when I found a new story or a new version of a fairy tale that I loved. That hasn’t changed. CRAVE: The Seduction of Snow White is an amazing twist to the story of Snow White. Ms. Yardley’s imagination is so brilliant that this adult version is hard to put down. It’s all here, the 7 men who take Snow White in, a jealous stepmother who wants to kill her and her Prince—okay, so he’s a reporter—who sweeps her off her feet. And did I mention the really hot sex? You’ve never seen Snow White like this!
