Heart and Soul was a fun short sexy read. Ms. black created a world that was completely believable, and characters that are unforgettable. I really liked the chemistry between Greer, and Caelen. I thought Caelen was sweet, sensitive, and perfect for Greer, and Greer with her spunky Witt, was perfect for Caelen.

I really enjoyed their story, and was sorry when it ended. I wanted to keep reading. I am very much looking forward to reading book two in this trilogy.


Caelan bit his tongue to keep from telling her she surpassed lovely and swiveled away. Greer moved to step off the rock at the same moment Caelan turned and his body collided with hers. Instinctively ousting the glowing orb, he reached to steady her, but her foot slipped out from under her and she lurched sideways into the lake, the splash of the water mixing with her shocked gasp. Not knowing if she could swim, he jumped in after her.
Immersed in the tepid water, he saw her surface and propelled himself upward. As he broke through the liquid barrier, he attempted to settle a startled Greer who still sputtered and choked from the sudden bath.
“I see it was not necessary for me to join you. You do know how to swim.” He grinned at her and, as if contagious, she grinned right back.
“At least the water is warm.”
“True.” Spanning his hands around her waist, he helped her out and hastened to join her on the bank. They stood dripping and laughing in the cool evening breeze. He watched from beneath lowered lids as her eyes ran the length of his body, resting on the erection he now sported as a result of her closeness, the feel of her soft skin and the way her wet tunic hugged her body. Caelan forced a swallow when she licked the water off those luscious lips of hers.
“Well, that certainly woke me back up,” she said cheerfully.
Glancing down at her erect nipples, he almost groaned in agreement. She most certainly was awake…and perky, too. “You can call me Mr. Hospitality. I think I have shown you all the fun to partake of here at the outpost all in one day. Whatever will we do tomorrow?” Caelan could think of a million things he yearned to do with and to her at the moment

About the Author
Tess Black was born in Massachusetts and now resides in a small town in Wisconsin. After spending many years as a stay-at-home mom for two lovely daughters, she has now found the perfect time to start her writing career.

Previously an avid reader of most genres, particularly fantasy, she was surprised when several years ago a new friend suggested a book series from a genre she was unfamiliar with, Paranormal Romance. (Shout out to Kiwi!) The rest is history! Although she still occasionally reads normal fiction, her love of paranormal romances, the edgier the better, has grown into an obsession.

She is currently working on Book Two of the Solaria Trilogy; Tolan's story and writes for an interactive storytelling website, www.rpworldgroup.org. Most days you can find Tess' physical body sitting with her Nook Tablet in hand or in front of her computer typing away; her mind, though, is off somewhere in an imaginary world.
