Safe in His Embrace
by Candice Poarch

Forced to flee for her life, Senetra Blain has moved to Alaska armed with a new identity. The last thing she wants is another relationship—until sensitive, sensual Alex Wilson tempts her to open up. But how can she ever trust another man? The seductive engineer seems to know who she is and what she wants. And that makes him dangerous to know...and dangerous to love.

The sultry new high school teacher is definitely hiding something. And Alex has a pretty good idea what it is. So Alex will take it slow. And, kiss by scorching kiss, he’ll show this alluring woman of mystery how right they are together—and that he’ll always be there to protect her. Because the closer he gets, the more Senetra’s letting down her guard. Now if only she’d let him into her heart....



Candice Poarch's Bio

Candice Poarch takes pride in crafting believable stories featuring African-American heroes and heroines.  The characters in her books demonstrate a strong sense of community and family support.  She firmly believes that everyday life in America (whether small town or major metropolitan city) has its own rich rewards.  She also likes telling stories that will leave today’s busy reader feeling refreshed and hopeful—not always an easy task, she says, but well worth the challenge.

Her fourteenth book, BITTERSWEET, (Dafina, July, 2006) deals with the heart, family, extended family and community.  "I really enjoyed Bittersweet... romance, comedy, mystery and intrigue...I would definitely recommend Bittersweet as a book club selection."  —Karen Monroe, Woman2Woman Book Club member.  Candice Poarch’s fifteenth book, SWEET SOUTHERN COMFORT, will be published by Kimani Press in November, 2006.

A native of Stony Creek, a small town in Southern Virginia, Candice Poarch holds a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from Virginia State University.  Formerly a computer systems manager, writing is now her full-time career. She is a member of Romance Writers of America, Multicultural Romance Writers, and Washington Romance Writers, where she  served as publicity coordinator for three years and worked on market news for two years.
