[AUTHOR'S NOTE: This short and steamy novella consists of two parallel stories. Chronologically, it follows Her Wicked Heart (Her Wicked Heart #1), and it also features characters from the His Wicked Games series.]

Two couples. Two struggles. Two wicked stories.

Ward Brannon would do anything to protect Louisa Cunningham. No one's ever gotten under his skin the way she has--or inspired such a hunger. But now that he knows the truth about her identity, it's becoming increasingly clear that the two of them are worlds apart. Is their explosive passion enough to hold them together?

Lily Frazer's been through her share of ups and downs with the brooding Calder Cunningham--but she doesn't know where to begin when it comes to his guilt over his sister. She hasn't quite mastered the ability to ease his worries with her body, to make his pain disappear with her lips or hands or softly whispered words, but she's determined to try. Even if it takes all night.

Approx. length = 13,000 words.

My Thoughts:

Take You Away is a charming continuation to the series. I loved reading this little in-between pair of stories with our favorite Wicked characters from both series by Ember Casey.

The first one is told from Ward's POV, which I completely enjoyed. We got to see where his mind was after the end of book 1 in the Her Wicked Heart series. His caring nature toward Louisa is definite, even though he's still not sure what's next for them. I loved seeing them interact and have high hopes for where it all leads in the next book, Lost and Found, which I'm reading now.

The second story is with the lovely Lily and her Calder. She's a temptress who wants to make him feel better. Which he, of course, won't stop her from doing. The sweetness and the passion are undeniable between them. I was more than happy to see more from these two. I am anxiously awaiting the moment I can read Their Wicked Wedding, since I have to read Lost and Found first.

My Rating:


  1. Let me just scroll past the sexy guy on the cover....Phew! That was hard. ;) I'm glad you enjoyed this one.

    1. Isn't it, though? Haha. The series is great! :)
