Threats loom and a long-hidden secret is at risk of being uncovered as a man and a woman locked in an unwanted marriage find themselves embroiled in a tangle of destructive webs.
Neither of them had expected this.
Tess Andrews needed to disappear. Ian Blackwell wanted the gossip chasers to stop disrupting his life. When the two of them said yes, neither had any idea who the other was, and they had nothing for each other but disdain and mistrust.
But when Ian is threatened, Tess has a choice to make. Keep her head down, or help the man she married face an opponent who could destroy them both-and risk him discovering her secret.
What a great book this was! I am often a bit sceptic when I see this genre announced. Not that the stories are not good and I don’t have anything against sex scenes in a book, but too much sex often kills it for me.
Why did I accept this book then? Well, that’s quite simple. First of all I loved the cover and I was intrigued.
What did I like about the book? Everything! Sometimes I struggled a little bit, because it was too technical for me and I was lost, but I took my time and I ended up understanding it and even learning from it. Woohoo. 🙂
The rest of the book was easy to follow and understand due also to the author’s fluent writing style. She put a smile on my face and she broke my heart with other passages, but she made me go oooooh too.
Now about the sex. I am sure you want to know about that if you feel like I do. I can assure you it was very beautiful and not used to fill pages and pages. It was only used when it added something to the story and it was very tastefully described.
A bit of glamour and glitter mixed with some romance and suspense makes this story a great read.
I really enjoyed it. 5 stars
Thank you, A. Claire and Kate Everward
