Ms. Shupe never fails to fascinate. Her stories are full of contradictions but are a charming display of what it means to be human. Flawed, real and alluringly sensual, within her stories she speaks of courageous women with hot tempers and enduring dreams and strong men with wicked appeal and emotions that run deep. A Daring Arrangement seduces with danger and quenches the need for a little romance as well. Julius and Nora are impetuous, obnoxious and dare I say clueless when it comes to love and life. They have much to learn about many things, including themselves and the heart is the perfect teacher to show them the way.
