The year is 1982. This town has a distinct border, the good side and the shady side, where the townspeople battle rats for scraps of food. Mario used to live among the rich, but he now resides on the wrong side of the tracks thanks to the father who left him behind. Worst of all, he’s mourning his mother’s death and what he thinks is the loss of his lifelong dream, becoming a chef. After meeting Dito who owns "Dean's Pizzeria", things are finally changing for Mario. Until Tess enters his life – the beautiful, mysterious stranger who lives in a luxury high rise. But there’s something off, something she’s hiding, something dark. Some borders aren’t meant to be crossed. "Sultry, Is the Night", is for anyone who has ever felt like they didn't belong. Strong language warning. Sexual content. Please note that some scenes depict dark, and sensitive themes that some readers may find disturbing.


His knuckles turned white as he dangled like foolish men do – without a net, and as the train sped past him, he screamed in unison with the whistle. There were no words to caption his pain. There was only a raw passion that escaped his lungs, mingling with the stagnant air he breathed.

A dark romance for those on the wrong side of the tracks


Reviewed On:

Sultry, is the night is an immersive tale that sweeps you away while tugging at the heartstrings as the author unravels the bitter-sweet romance between Mario and Tess. In typical Barbara Avon fashion, the prose is heartfelt and smooth, sprinkled with raw emotions and infused with the 80s vibe. The characters are multilayered, conflicted, and genuine. Mario is grieving the loss of his mother after a long illness, and Tess is burdened by her father's condition and the unsavory compromises...
