Hello everyone and welcome to my little corner of this fantastic hop. If you're wondering where my Sexy Man Friday is, then don't worry, normal service will resume next week, and there is always my Facebook page if you're missing your fix.
I couldn't resist joining in this hop. I mean who hasn't had their heart broken? And don't we remember those that got away? I know I do, and I wonder what if from time to time. I can't regret them too much, however, because I never would have met my hubby, and we've been together twenty five years!
Ain't love grand? Even when it doesn't work out, and you end up with a broken heart.
Now, as an author I'm in the privileged position to help heal those broken hearts. I love writing and reading about couples who overcome their difficulties, and get their happy ever after. And I do love torturing my characters along the way.
When Giorgio Giovanni tracks the troublesome Jemima down in a hospital bed in Italy, he has one thing on his mind—revenge. However, the fragile woman he encounters is not the devious female he remembers. When it becomes clear that she is in danger, he risks everything to keep her safe.
Left for dead, Jemima wakes up in hospital, terrified, and with no idea of her identity. The angry man, who comes to claim her, is the only link to a shared past she can't remember. A past that threatens to destroy them, and all she has ever held dear.
With danger all around them, and their sexual chemistry off the scale, can they find their way back to each other, or is the past too devious to tame?
Here is little teaser for you:
Anything else did not bear thinking about. He made a dash for the kitchen galley, and by the time he re-emerged with a tray full of breakfast essentials the rain had stopped, and the sun had come out. Judging by the steam rising off the yacht's surface it promised to be a hot day after all. He shouldered the door to the cabin open and found Jemima curled into a ball on the king size bed. It seemed she had gone back to sleep. Carefully, so as not to wake her, he put the tray on the night stand and shrugged out of his wet clothes. Having dried himself off with a towel he climbed into bed next to her. She moaned in her sleep, and he settled her into the crook of his arm and pulled her close, the need to hold her suddenly paramount. There were dried tears on her cheeks, and he swallowed past the lump in his throat.
He kissed the tear stains away, and his heart gave a suspicious lurch in his too tight chest, when she snuggled into him, as trusting, needy, and fragile as a new newborn foal in her sleep. He settled his hand on her abdomen and vowed there and then to do everything in his power to protect the woman he loved with every fiber of his being. He might not trust her, but he could no more not love her than he could stop breathing. It was useless to even try to fight the overwhelming feelings engulfing him. Like the swirling mass of water cascading down a waterfall, his feelings could not be denied. They pulled him under, tossed him against the rocks, and spewed him on dry land, only to yank him back into the maelstrom, when he was least expecting it.
He was opening himself up to a world of hurt, but he was going to fight for this marriage or die trying.
