Beth and Grey’s passionate battle of wills continues...
New York Merchant Prince Grey Sexton loves the audacious, spirited young temptress who seduced him in a Philadelphia bookseller’s and made passionate love to him in his carriage. Her fiery nature broke through his cold self-protection. But in a time of war and trade disruption, he cannot allow himself to be distracted. He vows to put business above all else in his life, including his bride.
Shocked and hurt by Grey's distance, Beth wonders whether he truly returns the burning love she feels for him. Beth demands that Grey prove he can truly change once and for all or else she will not start a family with him. But will the dark, sensual secrets she yet keeps repel this arrogant, self-controlled gentleman she has married?
Review: In a time of war and trade disruption, Grey and Beth struggle with there new engagement because Grey is determined not to let anything distract him from his work and Beth is hurt and struggles with his distance. Beth demands a change from him or she will not start a family with him.
Beth all so has to deal with people from her past like scrounging brothers and sisters and the first love she had long forgotten. as you can see, this is not the best start for our couple.
from Greys side of the story we see him struggle with his new life, trying to find a balance between his work life and his home when all he can think about is the amazing woman willing to spend the rest of his life with him. he all worries that his new marriage will end up just like his first one and he doesn't know hoe to deal with it.
This book I thought another amazing read from Natasha. I was doubting how much I would enjoy it after such a hit with the first book but I'm happy to say I really enjoyed it. I think Natasha is an amazing writer who was gifted in so many ways. The only down side I have with her work is that it should of been put into paper back so I could keep it on my shelf with all my other favourites.
RATING OF 5 LIPS.
