Readers are again transported to the sexy world of women from the wrong side of the tracks finding HEA with men who see past their outer trappings to the deserving woman beneath. In Love Reclaimed former loves are torn apart by Fate who meet years later to try to salvage the love they once felt for each other only to find that they've both changed but still find much to draw them together.
Marie has been betrayed by Fate and a father who sold her to the highest bidder. She never wants to feel that way again, as if she has no control over her own life. The renewed emotions and feelings of love Jonathon expresses towards her scare Marie who's treated love as a business deal since that fateful day. Even though she too still loves him she demands that their time together be like a business deal as she swears to herself that she'll prove to him why they don't belong together. What ensues is one naughty encounter after another with each getting steamier than the last. The scenes start off rather vanilla and then move to use of toys and finally a ménage.
Jonathon adored Marie in her younger years and would've married her had not their families gotten in the way. After living a well-mannered life with a quiet wife he returns to convince Marie that the time has come for them to be together. Though he finds her changed he's intrigued by the woman she's become and jumps wholeheartedly into the sensual games she introduces him to.
Not only are the bedroom scenes sensual but so too is the dialogue between them that crackles with sexual tension. Seeing their inner demons battle for supremacy is extremely entertaining and as Marie uses sex as a weapon it's not always clear who will win. Jonathon's so desperate to have her that he's not above using sympathy as a life-altering event befalls them late in the story.
This is a fast-paced story that features two likable characters engaged in a sexy battle of wills. This decadent delight beautifully balances steamy sexual encounters will intensely emotional characterizations that has me rooting for the main couple's HEA every step of the way.
