Sizzling, engrossing and angsty Smolder by Tracy Solheim should definitely be on your radar of novellas to read. The characters in this short and fast-paced story were well-drawn out and the author did a fine job building their individual back-stories without overpowering the readers. Sam and Lauren jumped off the pages. Their past relationships, their struggle, their growth—their overall personalities kept you interested until the end. This is a gem for readers who love short stories that sizzle!
