From the introduction: ¿He is a pompous ass!¿ When Paige Andrews is given the assignment of courting a famous writer for the publishing company she works for, she meets and entices the sexy, charming and thoroughly dangerous womanizer, Lon Bartlett. Lon immediately takes a not-so-professional, personal interest in the young woman and pursues her. Lon is thrilled when Paige finally succumbs to his charms only to find that her haunting past sets off a terrifying reaction. Lon learns a heartbreaking reality - Paige is a rape survivor. Will Lon be able to change his womanizing ways? Will he want to? Will Paige ever learn to trust again? Can they learn to love and live, together?
This is a story of a woman struggling with the aftereffects of rape while she falls in love. The man she loves becomes a huge suupport for her as he has to learn to adjust as well. Well written, very understanding. This definitely is a good book for a discussion group.
