Overview

For years, Damien Avenall loved Alexandra Turlington like a little sister; or so he thought until she grew into a lovely and desirable young lady. In a moment of madness, he kisses her and everything changes between them.

?Alex often wonders why the dangerous viscount betrayed their special friendship. His kiss awakened her to passion, but she knows better than to give her heart to a libertine. Or does she?

EXCERPT:

Damien resumed his place at the breakfast table and smiled sardonically. �A man can enjoy a variety of interests, Miss Turlington. People may call me Demon, but I don�t waste all my time in decadent amusements, I assure you.�

He waited for her response. Would she recognize her own words? Words that had cut through his jaded heart, words he knew even then to be true?

Alexandra rose from the table, her cheeks flushed. �Years ago, I said some unkind things to you. I�m sorry, but you must admit the provocation was great.�

Quickly, Damien pushed back his chair and leaned across the table. Placing a finger under her chin, he stared at her full, moist lips, then into her eyes. �I admit nothing, my dear. And I refuse to apologize for something which�if I remember correctly�I found extremely pleasurable.�

Jerking her chin from his grasp, Alex stepped back. �You forget yourself, my lord. I�m no longer an impressionable schoolgirl. Try for once to act with gentlemanly decorum, especially if you intend to stay at Willowmede. Now, if you will excuse me, I shall go see about my brother.�

�Certainly, Miss Turlington.� He frowned as he watched her retreating form. Alexandra was correct in saying she was no longer a schoolgirl. She was a beautiful woman, and much too desirable for his peace of mind.

ABOUT THIS BOOK:

I had so much fun writing this book. The characters are very dear to my heart. Besides the main romance story, there is a secondary love story involving the heroine's brother and her best friend.

Ms. Novark has woven a tale of trust betrayed and loved denied. Damien is called to help his childhood friend recover from a devastating war injury, but doing so brings him face to face with Alexandra. He learned from his mother that women were unfaithful and untrustworthy. So what is he doing by falling in love with his best friend's sister? Alexandra has loved Damien as a brother for most of her life, but a fateful kiss when she was seventeen turned their relationship on its head. Now, ten years later, they must face the fact they can never turn back the clock to the way things were. But can they face the future alone?

I loved this story of friends who fall in love and defy all the odds by finding their way to one another through all the entanglements in this book. There were so many stories in this one book, but I loved the way the author resolved them all.

This was my first book by this author. It was a very nice story and kept me entertained throughout. In my opinion, I think this could have been even better had the author focused on just one couple and turned this into a 3 or even 4 book series. There was a lot going on during those 147 pages and focusing on one couple per book would have allowed for more in depth character and plot development.
