My life with Damien has never been fuller. Every day is a miracle, and every night I lose myself in the oasis of his arms.
But there are new challenges, too. Our families. Our careers. And new responsibilities that test us with unrelenting, unexpected trials.
I know we will survive—we have to. Because I cannot live without Damien by my side. But sometimes the darkness seems overwhelming, and I am terrified that the day will come when Damien cannot bring the light. And I will have to find the strength inside myself to find my way back into his arms.

She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.Hold Me: A Stark Ever After Novella by J. Kenner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I can't even tell you how much I love this series! Damien and Nikki. Sigh. That's all I can do when I think about their story. I am addicted to these books. So I jump up and down and get so excited everytime I hear there will be another chapter to delve into and learn even more about these amazing characters.
This novella is everything you could ask for. It is excitement, it is angst, it is fun, but most of all, what stands out to me in these books is love. It is so great seeing the progression in Damien and Nikki's life. There are definitely some bumps in the road, but ultimately, you get to see their relationship continue to evolve and I loved every minute of it.
My only complaint is that I wish it could have been a full length novel, because I am always greedy for more from this series. :)
