The Devil Inside

All the Right Angles

It finally happened! A romance novel with absolutely no sex. I've had nightmares about coming across such a book. Well, here it is...and while it's better than I thought, in the end I felt let down because the likable and well-written characters deserved more passion. Francesca Moretti is seco ...
