The Dahlia Trilogy by Vivian Winslow
Dahlia is Lily’s twin, living life her own way, madly in love and planning a future with Rodrigo, but her past is calling her to find closure, to leave it behind and start her new life with a fresh slate. Can that be possible? They say you can never go back, but seeing Shane again, proves that true love never dies, even after the pain of it has lessened. Will talk and truths heal the re-opened wounds? Where does Dahlia’s future lie?
She has held a secret for years, is it time to share the burden she has carried? Is she strong enough to open herself for scrutiny? Is there something that could bring even this party animal to her knees? Her parents have played a huge role with her secret loss and continue to smash her hopes at every turn. Will Dahlia never find the one thing that will complete her, beyond the love of a man?
Fate and destiny seem to have it out for Dahlia, as her losses mount her life is thrust into a pit of turmoil, and along comes another man to give her a brief escape from reality. Is Kai more than a passing fling or is he a stepping stone back to where Dahlia belongs?
The Dahlia Trilogy by Vivian Winslow showcases her style well, as drama, some lighter moments and smoking hot sensual scenes come alive under her talented pen. One minute, tears, the next, vapors and rapid breathing, add in a little anger, grief and “You’ve got to be kidding me!” and one begins to wonder how Dahlia has even survived. There is plenty of passion, heat, pain and happiness to go around, but will she give us a happy ending? Guess you need to read The Dahlia Trilogy to find out! Bring a fan and be prepared to get to know the real Dahlia.
