I'll first say that it's necessary to read Poughkeepsie before reading Return to Poughkeepsie. Of course I won't give away any details from either book that would spoil anything for you. When I read Poughkeepsie many moons ago, I liked it. It was long, detailed, and wove itself around the characters' dark pasts in a way that didn't make me feel sorry for them. I loved Return to Poughkeepsie. Wherever the first book was lacking (not that I remember details from that far back), Return more than made up for them. We get to see Eve and Beckett's human sides, check in with the other characters, and get caught up in the suspense of the underworld no one wants to know exists. I loved the *ahem* coupling scenes that Debra wrote, more specifically how Eve and Beckett are damn animals for one another. Both books are tremendous reads for anyone who loves an epic love story mixed with drama and seduction. [January 2014]

From The Publisher


Beckett Taylor is a murderer. His calling, his craft are destruction and intimidation—whether he wants it that way now or not. He left Poughkeepsie to keep his brothers safe, to keep Eve safe. Set up with happy lives to live, they’re better off without him, right?

But all his willpower crumbles when he hears his brother Blake’s frantic voice on the phone. An unknown enemy has moved in on his old territory, and Livia’s been taken. In an instant, Beckett knows it will take an attack only he and Eve can execute to bring her back. All his self-imposed embargoes are torn to shreds, perhaps along with the new man he’s struggled to become.

“Brother, call Eve. I’ll be there soon.”

In this emotional and action-packed sequel to Poughkeepsie, Debra Anastasia conjures a tale of love at its most raw and ragged. With Beckett and Eve, how could we expect anything less? But even when it’s messy, not magical, true love perseveres. Real love finds a way—for better or worse until death does part.
