Overview

Worldly and influential, Merrick William Hasting, Earl of Huntingdon, is the catch of the season. It is expected of him to propose the belle of the ton. On his way to his country estate, Merrick saves a youth name Chris from being beaten to death and takes him to his grand home. Suddenly, Merrick begins to feel an undercurrent of emotions toward Chris, emotions he has lost since the mysterious death of his wife. Not to mention an attraction of the sexual type so powerful, he thinks he has gone mad. The desire is entirely unnatural and against God’s rule of nature, and he must at all cost annihilate his sinful craving.
Shy and loyal to her boot, Christina Smith is disguising herself as a lad in order to protect herself and her family. After Merrick has saved her and fostered her in his home, her devotion and love for him knows no bound. She, however, is very confused and hurt when he starts pushing her away after the arrival of his guests. She knows those vile, scheming beautiful women are competing for his hand in marriage, and she uses her wits and tricks to protect him. Trying to convince the stubborn man so, however, is very hard indeed, especially where his heart is concern.

Meet the Author

Hello, my awesome readers, and welcome.

Allow me to introduce myself. I am a writer (abet only a beginner and still learning heaps in this wonderful industry of authorship and book publishing). I love to write romance; be it contemporary (mainly multicultural), reverse harem, historical, historical urban fantasy, fantasy, paranormal, or a combination of any of these.

I am the one responsible for fantasizing up hot, kick-ass heroes and cute heroines, and ultimately, turn their lives into a horrible mess. Hence, I play God in my books, introducing villains (people usually call them antagonists) and causing general havoc so that my drop-dead gorgeous heroes and pretty heroines have to fight to the end to get their happily ever after.

Many may not like my style of writing, or my stories for that matter, and indeed, this is because I am a bit weird myself, choosing to write the way I write. I have been told my taste (on almost everything) bordered on the eccentric side and very unlikely to follow what’s popular. But this is me, and I cannot help myself.

So, my dear readers, I implore you to support me and my books if you love or even like a tiny bit of my books. Because really, without you, then why would I write? Why would I fantasize up all these wonderful characters for you to fall in love with? Why would I fantasize up all these interesting plots for you to grit your wonderful teeth and then shout out, ‘Oh for Christ’s sake! Just kiss her already! And kiss her so damn passionately that her wee toes curl up with pleasure.’

Hence, become my friend and follow me, and yes, invite your friends, too. Bully them if you must. I don’t care. I’ll love you anyway for simply reading my books and becoming my awesome followers. Spread the words, people, because I’m working my way toward the light of being one of the awesomest romance authors on this wonderful planet we call our home.

MY CURRENT AND FUTURE PROJECTS:

A Secret Proposal (Falling For Sakura: Book 2): Multicultural Contemporary, Reverse Harem
A Secret Affair (Falling For Sakura: Book 3): Multicultural Contemporary, Reverse Harem
The Marquess’s Temptation (The Rogue Series: Book 3): Historical Romance

So start following me and don’t forget, if you like my books, write a review about it.

Thank you so much, my awesome reader ;)

Alexia

    Good book

    This book was a pretty good book. The main female character, christine, was kind of annoying. At some points in the book i actually thought i cant believe this author made this girl so niave. She seemed like she was 14 or younger. But other than that it was a good story. Would recommend.
