This is the continuation of the story told in Book 8 - Stephie. If you haven't read Book 1 - Birgit, Book 2 - Jennifer, Book 3 - Pia, Book 4 - Bethany, Book 5 - Stephanie, Book 6 - Kara I, Book 7 - Kara II, and Book 8 - Stephie, - then you'll have serious difficulty following the story. I strongly encourage you to read those before you begin this ninth book.
Like the earlier books, there is a lot of dialogue and introspection. There is also a lot of sex, some of it explicit and juicy, and some of it agonizingly erotic in its simplicity.
Book 9 has 82 chapters and about 450,000 words when completely posted. It's a lengthy read. I hope you'll stick with it.
A special thanks to Steve Smith my editor, who has done an incredibly fantastic job helping me bring these characters to life. Also, to my proofreaders and the members of the AWLL Yahoo group who get to read the pre-release chapters and point out the remaining typos and misses.
