He wears a mask…and he is following her. Staring at
her like no other man since Colin. But Colin is dead and
Amelia believes she will never again shiver with pleasure,
never again sigh his name.
Until her masked pursuer lures her into a moonlit garden and
a single, reckless kiss. Now she is obsessed with
discovering his identity. Perfectly attuned to his every
desire, his every thought, she will not stop until she knows
his every secret.
Originally published November 2007 and February 2013 in
trade paperback by Kensington Brava.
Sylvia Day is the national bestselling, award-winning author of over a dozen novels written across multiple sub-genres — contemporary, fantasy, historical, futuristic, science fiction, romantic suspense, paranormal romance, and urban fantasy — under multiple pen names: three! A wife and mother of two, she is a former Russian linguist for the U.S. Army Military Intelligence.
Sylvia is a lifelong California resident who loves to travel. Her adventures have taken her to Japan, Holland, Germany, France, Mexico, Jamaica, and all over the United States. Born in Los Angeles, she grew up in Orange County (the O.C.), and later lived in Monterey, Oceanside, and the Temecula Valley.
She is a Japanese-American who enjoys the many Japanese cultural events in Southern California as well as frequent family jaunts to Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, and Sea World. Her childhood career aspirations were few — become a dolphin trainer at Sea World or a bestselling novelist. Obviously, the dolphin trainer career took a back seat.
A year after she first sat down at the keyboard, Sylvia sold her first book to Kensington Brava and three years later—to the day—she sold her 15-17th single title books. In addition to her novels, she's written numerous novellas and short stories for both print and electronic-original release. Called "wonderful and passionate" by WNBC.com and "wickedly entertaining" by Booklist, Sylvia's stories are frequent recipients of Readers' Choice and Reviewers' Choice accolades. Her work has been translated into Russian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish. She's been honored with the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice award, the EPPIE award, and multiple finalist nods for Romance Writers of America's prestigious RITA Award of Excellence.
A voracious reader, Sylvia still manages to keep up with her two young children. She's blessed with an understanding husband who is proud of her writing and doesn't mind (too much) that her computer sees her more often than he does.
