New York Times bestseller Penelope Douglas introduces Quinn, younger sister to Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon, in the latest novella in the series that began with Jared and Tate in Bully....Quinn Caruthers has several problems.  
Her father, Jason, and her three older brothers, Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon.  
Under the close watch of the men in her family, Quinn has found it nearly impossible to spread her wings—or even date—without them jumping in to hover. And when a family friend—several years older—from her childhood captures her heart, she knows they’re going to be a problem. Lucas Morrow is a man—experienced, sophisticated, and important. And knowing her brothers, he may as well be forbidden.  
But Lucas left town years ago and shows no signs of returning. Quinn knows she shouldn’t wait for him anymore.
But then a package turns up on her doorstep with no return address and its contents reveal family secrets that threaten to turn Quinn’s world upside down. She’s never asked about the tumultuous path of her parents’ romantic history, but she soon learns their happy marriage had a very rocky and passionate start.  
As she begins to see things around her with new eyes, Quinn will have to make tough choices about whether she’ll keep waiting…or finally go after what she really wants.


I knew that this book was going to just be one big tease. But I’m incredibly grateful that Pen took the time to wet our appetite with a sneek peek at the next generation in this series!! Originally I was just looking forward to Quinn’s story, but now I can’t wait to get more of Dylan’s!!! Especially with what was going on with Hunter and Kade at the end. But what I’m most appreciative about is that Pen was able to give ys the paperback of Aflame because of this story!!! Now the family is all together on my shelf!
