Description from Amazon.com:
The newest historical romance series from USA Today Bestselling Romance Author Jess Michaels Widow Rosalinde Wilde is on her way to her beloved sister’s wedding when an unexpected storm waylays her at an overcrowded inn. There she meets a tempting stranger who sweeps her into a night of unforgettable passion. Grayson Danford never expected a night with the irresistible Mrs. Wilde, but she was a welcome distraction from the unpleasant duty of breaking up his brother’s impending nuptials. He’s shocked when he discovers his passionate lover is none other than the sister of his brother’s intended. Now Rosalinde and Gray will butt heads, even as their simmering desire for each other threatens to boil over. Who will win? And who might lose it all?
This is a good read. Just the right length to tell the tale of Gray and Rosalinde and introduce us to Celia and the Earl of Stanfax. This is a lust-at-first-sight trope, which evolves into love. Gray and Rosalinde cannot get enough of each other even though they both try to talk themselves out of the attraction. There is Gray trying to break up his brother’s pending nuptials because he sees no attraction between Stanfax and Celia. Rosalinde is trying to talk Gray out of his mission. But wait then there is a twist, a surprise that might just turn everything on its ear. Throw in an evil relative and you have some exciting happenings.
At the end of this book there is an introduction to the next book in the series with characters from this book.
P.S.- Once again we have a very good book with a really awful cover. The book is so much better than this cover.
I would caption this cover:
her: Do you see it? Right there behind my left ear.
him: Yeah I think so. Hold still, no, no, don’t try and get it yourself.
