    Sundown is book #0.5 in the Bright Lights Duet by Tia Louise. This novella needs to be read in between the other two books. It takes place five years after the ending of Under The Lights. It’s been five years since Mark, now Detective Mark Fitzhugh, has seen Lara. But she has always been in his head, in his dreams, and in his heart.

It takes place five years after the ending of Under The Lights. It’s been five years since Mark, now Detective Mark Fitzhugh, has seen Lara. But she has always been in his head, in his dreams, and in his heart. Mark is on his annual journey from British Columbia to Juneau and back on the White Pass-Yukon Route. It’s the winter and the weather is bad and there is hardly anyone on the train. Then SHE walks into the dining car. He can’t believe it’s her, after all these years. Lara, now going by Lia Hale, and Molly, who is now eighteen, walk into the dining car when she sees him. He’s alive! She had always thought him dead, had grieved him. But he was still always there in her heart, in her memories. But she can’t let on that she knows him. She and Molly have a reason for this trip. Lara and Mark have a few hours together and they once again experience the joy their bodies remember together. But that joy is short lived. This is a very short interlude that joins the two books of this duet. It leaves me crazy with excitement to continue the story in book two, Under the Stars. This series leaves me breathless and I can’t wait to see how this all turns out. “She held me and called me by my name as I dreamed of another life. A life where I was more than her hero. A life where I saved her from the demons. We will have that life. I’m going to find her, and this time, we’ll finish it for good.” “You’ll always be my girl.”

    *ARC provided by the author for an honest review* So good. Mark and Lara are becoming one of my favourite characters from a Tia Louise series. They are so hot together even after the time they have spent apart. There time together hasnt been easy and still isnt. There are so many things goin against them but the chemistry between them never dies. It's 5 years since they have seen each other. Once they set eyes on each other's there is shock.

There are so many things goin against them but the chemistry between them never dies. It's 5 years since they have seen each other. Once they set eyes on each other's there is shock. They never thought they would see each other again after everything. There is so much that needs to be said and stories that need to be told. But time is never in there favour. This book is a novella that's was part of The Vault Anthology. It's also a novella from The Bright Lights duet. This is set after the first book Under The Light. Which is a brilliant book. Like I said the characters are just brilliant. There sexual chemistry is crazy hot. The story is so good I just can't get enough of it once I start. This book as just made me want the next book so bad. I m a huge fan of this author for years and I have to say her work just keeps getting better. I would highly recommend this.

This had a bit of an Agatha Christie feel to it as we are introduced to several characters previously unknown, all traveling on a train in the Yukon/Alaska wilderness. A blizzard is being predicted and everyone is gathered in the dining car. Definitely a who-done-it atmosphere. Mark and Lara are drawn together for a night of passion and although they share a bit about where they went or what happened during that dramatic time so long ago, neither goes into much detail leaving the reader questioning what exactly is taking place on this isolated train. The ending was definitely a bit of a shocker and I’ve got to admit I’m curious as heck to find out what, how, why. On to the next! Dual POV Safe – very short read so any info regarding celibacy is unknown; no ow/om drama here No apparent triggers

    I read this as part of the upcoming The Vault anthology and was I blown away! A new to me author, Sundown by Tia Louise was an adventure I only come across once in a great while. A bit of a mystery as Larissa and her 'sister' Molly board a train in the snowy wilderness to exact revenge when they were poor and abused in the French Quarter. And when Larissa meets the eyes of Mark Fitzhugh after what seems like a lifetime apart, her plan just got a bit muddied.

And when Larissa meets the eyes of Mark Fitzhugh after what seems like a lifetime apart, her plan just got a bit muddied. I love the adrenaline-fueled rush felt as a very colorful cast of characters adds to the plan hatched by both Molly and Larissa. It's like riding on the Orient Express and these two very carefully find their mark and don't stop until they get what they are after. Mark being thrown into the mix adds a bittersweet romance that neither were prepared for. Their unexpected trysts were wildly sexy and held deep-seeded emotion from years before. With a conclusion that has me craving so much more, I look forward to the next part of the story that is sure to be as intricately appealing as the first. A huge 5 stars!

    Tia Louise is a new to me author. But I was not letdown by her novella, Sundown. Sundown had it all a hint of mystery, intrigue, murder! A tale that grabbed ahold of me from start to finish. We meet Larissa and Mark a few years prior. He wants a second chance to save the woman he didn't get to then. He becomes a detective. Watching Mark and Larissa come together years later was beautiful. Their connection is SIZZLING! I love how Tia gave us such beautifully, flawed characters.

    This novella packs a punch. We pick up 5 years after Mark and Lara’s separation and their amazing chemistry is alive and well. Mark has acquired his dream of becoming a detective. But what life has given Lara is unknown. What we do know is there is a train, some intrigue and a terrible crime! I have to know what happened! 5+

    Sundown is a decadent and teasing glimpse into the past and the future at once. It will light you on fire and delight your senses as you become a piece of a chessmasters board. A seemingly innocent and chance meeting will turn your world upside down as a twisted and complex plot slowly unravels. This novella is a mouth-watering tease of a prelude to book 2 in the under the light series. Nothing compares to the writing of Tia Louise, and this is no exception.

    Sundown is a great novella in The Vault Anthology Volume 1 and is about Mark & Larissa. I found it an intriguing story of revenge and second chances. It's also an introduction to a new duet from what has to be my favorite author in the romance genre. I can't think of one book or story of Tia's that I haven't loved. I'm really looking forward to reading more about this couple and their story! Sundown is a great novella in The Vault Anthology Volume 1 and is about Mark & Larissa.

    Sundown by Tia Louise bridges the gap between the two books in the Bright Lights Duet . This is essentially the detailed story of when Lara and Mark run into each other after five years apart. He thought she was lost to him. She thought he was dead. They each have their own agendas for being on the train but their love for each other just cannot keep them apart. A nice little teaser that helped ease the wait until book two came out. Enjoy! Sundown by Tia Louise bridges the gap between the two books in the Bright Lights Duet .

    Finished Under the Lights today and was excited to read this to get a mini-reunion between Lara and Mark! And oh, what a sexy, hot reunion it is! I can’t wait to to read the conclusion in Under the Stars to see Mark go after the life he’s been dreaming of! So good!!

    5 years after Mark is dragged away and presumed dead, he and Lara, “coincidentally” encounter one another a sleeper train in Alaska. Although their reunion was sexy as he||, I was disappointed by how lacking their communication was. I have so many questions that are still unanswered and assume the characters would too after being separated for 5 years! The other issue I had with this book is that it had a historical vibe at times (historical romance is one of my least favorite genres).

The other issue I had with this book is that it had a historical vibe at times (historical romance is one of my least favorite genres). The characters Mark and Lara met on the train were regal and pretentious with names like Aleister, Baron Esterhaus, Ustinov and Fragonard. These characters and there pompous names might have been appropriate if the train was traveling through Europe but they were in Alaska! Even the description of the train made the context feel dated, the stateroom containing, “...plush Persian rugs and thick velvet curtains...”. Unexpectedly, this book is not just a romance as during the last 5%, it becomes a crime/mystery. With yet another cliffhanger, I guess I’ll have to go onto the next book to find out how things finally work out for this couple!

    This book really needs to be read in between book 1 and book 2 of this series. I would have probably enjoyed it a little bit more if I read book 1 Under the Lights. This book takes place 5 years after the end of Under the Lights. There is a reunion between Mark and Larisa on a train between Canada and Alaska. Things are complicated because Mark is now a police detective and Larisa and her friend Molly are out for revenge. This book really needs to be read in between book 1 and book 2 of this series.

    Mark and Larissa haven’t seen each other in five years. They both always wondered what had happened to the other and their encounter leaves them hot and bothered until they finally give in to the passion they’ve always had for each other. This story was slow at first and it took a bit to get me into the characters but then once it did, it was full speed ahead and the suspense as to why Larissa and her companion, Molly, were on the train, just kept me going.
