A man out for revenge…

When Alexander Volkow

raced into Crossroads, Alabama and bought up half of Broad Street, the entire

town questioned his motives, but he didn’t care. He did it for one reason and

only one reason — to find the man who went AWOL from the military with his brother,

Kon. Knowing Kon, something is terribly wrong, and Alex is set on retribution.

But when all roads lead to

the town’s favorite daughter, who just happens to be the missing man’s fiancée,

Alex can’t help but be mesmerized by her alluring southern charm and sexy

little snort.

A woman searching for a

way out

No amount of bartending,

snake charming, or organic cotton growing can stop the fear blooming inside

Polly Anna Coots. She knows if her MIA fiancée is found alive, he’ll want to

follow through with their marriage plans, but she has had a change of heart —

and not just because of the new man she can’t get out of her head. If her

fiancée returns and she reneges on their future, she’ll end up DOA.

When one of Polly Anna’s

snakes runs Alex off the road, sparks fly, and the two embark on a steamy

collision course in a small town filled with secrets that add fuel to the

smoldering fire.

Can either one of them get

just close enough to acquire what they need from the other without falling in

Even though I have read other books, including Just in Case which is also in Crossroads, Alabama, I loved this book. It can definitely be a standalone, although we all know I am a huge fan of series. I will be looking forward to follow those in Crossroads in future books.


This book had me wondering about the characters and what their next moves will be. Who will be the star of the next book by Elizabeth Marx? Can those in that small Alabama town hold my interest? The answer to that is of course. I want more.


Do yourself a big favor and pick this book up to read.
