Romance and The Challenge Series

Captivating the CEO available HERE
By Sara Daniel

When I learned that Decadent was starting The Challenge Series, I was immediately intrigued by the premise of the line. Rather than being connected books, every story stands on its own and deals with a physical or emotional challenge that is integral to the characters’ journey. Still, I found myself skeptical. When I’m dealing with a serious “life” issue, the last thing on my mind is romance.

But then I started thinking. Who needs a happily-ever-after the most? People who are dealing with serious stuff in their lives and can’t see a way they’ll ever achieve a sense of normalcy, let alone a satisfying conclusion. My mission as a writer is to make people believe in love and happily ever after, especially those who need and deserve it the most. The Challenge Series was calling my name!

I immediately knew what my character’s challenge would be—a medical issue that I’ve had firsthand experience with and therefore felt qualified to write about. In a medical emergency, you count on the people you love to be there for you. When the stakes are the highest and emotions are on a rollercoaster, you discover which people rise to the occasion and which ones flake out. What better way to discover if the hero really has what it takes to be worthy of the heroine?

After writing my first Challenge book, I can honestly say no romance story is more emotional, more urgent, or more worthy of a satisfying happily-ever-after ending. Let me know if you agree as a reader, and enter to win a $25 Amazon gift card.


When live-for-the-moment massage therapist Willow Jeffries bursts into Colin Vanderhayden's office, she makes it her mission to loosen up the future-focused CEO, knowing each moment of the present is too precious to waste. Despite her immediate attraction, the only future she can offer is one full of heartache.

The last thing Colin needs is a flighty woman messing up his carefully-constructed plans, but her heavenly massages and addictive personality prove hard to resist. But he has no idea how sick she is.

No longer able to ignore her life-threatening medical condition, Willow slips away to spare Colin a miserable future with her. Is Colin willing to sacrifice his well-laid future plans to get Willow back?
