Schoolteacher Connie Meyers is suddenly a young widow, her husband killed in a horrific car accident. Heartbroken to find out he had gambled away everything they had, she moves to her sister-in-law's
Midwest home to
rebuild her life. A trip to the local Renaissance Faire with her nieces leads
to a summer job as a costumed storyteller.
Avowed bad boy and fair performer Gage Youngblood is infatuated with Connie at first sight. Despite his deliberately commitment-free life, and Connie's don't-touch-me attitude, he soon has her in his arms, realizing quickly she is also in his heart.
When she is threatened by her late husband's bookie, he steps into the role of protector, his fate forever sealed with hers.
It 's a romantic novel but anche full of suspense and mystery, a pleasant, engaging and fun reading.
Connie Meyers has just lost everything: her husband, her trust in men and even her job. She loved her husband very much but, when he dies suddenly, turns out that was not the person she thought: had a mistress who was pregnant with him. She decides to change town and is hosted by her sister-in-law and slowly the pain and the disappointment are reduced thanks to the affection of her adorable nephews. She also knows a man, Gage, which is very attracted to and that might just be the right one to start over. But her husband and his disasters will not easily abandon her.
Connie is wounded and disappointed, the only thing that remains is the love for her work and for children: she loves so much to teach. Gage also awakens her romantic and passionate side: he is so sexy and then makes her feel truly loved and desired ....
It 's a fast reading, light but well-written, ideal as summer reading
I recommend it to those who love romantic suspense
“Who said anything about a relationship?” he said, standing up so he could tower over her again. “I’m just trying to have a little fun. You know, fun?”
If he’d been an animal, she was sure he’d have had hair raised on the back of his neck, he seemed so angry, and it struck her painfully. She hadn’t wanted to anger him or hurt him. She turned away from him and closed her eyes to tamp down the tears she knew would come if she let them. She crossed her arms over her chest, to hold in the pain. Being tired made her much too vulnerable.
“Yes,” she finally said. “I know about fun. Life isn’t always fun, though.”
“Princess.” His voice was soft, tender. “I won’t hurt you. It’s not in my plan.”
Despite herself, she felt the shivers of desire race down from her shoulders, down her arms and legs, and back up to that secret, soft place at her core. She bowed her head and gritted her teeth, hoping for the feeling to go away.
“And what is your plan, Gage?”
“It’s a simple plan. I want you to feel good. I want to feel good, too.”
