In 1973 Arkansas, six year old Victoria Lancaster was abandoned. Due to selective amnesia, the trauma of coming home to an empty house has been buried deep in her subconscious. Over the subsequent years, Tory's childhood memories revolve around being bounced from foster home to foster home. For the past three years, Tory has lived with DA investigator Brett Hooker. Over the past quarter of a century, he is the only person to slightly dent Tory's emotional shield, but even he knows that in spite of their obvious love for each other, the ephemeral Tory is incapable of any deeper commitment.
Her last photo assignment had Tory away from Brett for six weeks. However, though their lovemaking reaches stratospheric heights, something seems to be bothering Tory. A picture of a tattooed person that she recently shot has invoked hidden memories and has led to gruesome nightmares. Between this and Brett being shot on the job, Tory fears being abandoned again. Though thoroughly frightened, the intrepid Tory decides it is time to confront her past, regardless of the danger it leads to, if she is to enjoy a future with the man she loves.
SWEET BABY is an ingenious psychological romance that allows readers to see first hand the childhood traumas affecting an otherwise tender but dauntless individual and the man willing to risk everything to protect her back. The story line is both emotional and fast-paced, a rare summit that only the supreme scribes such as Sharon Sala can successfully scale. Fans of psychological romance will cherish this keeper.
