Sweet Saturday Sample Today


The Threshold is a paranormal romance that would have an R rating if it were on the movie rating system. 
However, this sample is PG13 for lust and language. 
This is a blog hop from http://sweetsatsample.wordpress.com/2011/07/26/sweet-saturday-samples-07302011/.  There are about 40+ authors with links to their works, so if you're here, welcome! I hope you take the time to read and to follow! Please let me know what you think in the comments so I'll be sure to come by your blog as well.
