Description-


  • Skylar Lawrence isn't looking for romance when she arrives at the Davies' sumptuous Hamptons estate. But when Skylar meets her ex-fiancé's twin brother, their chemistry is as tumultuous as the storm brewing outside. Sinfully handsome Alessandro Davies exudes the kind of animal magnetism that's impossible to resist...and hazardous to a woman's heart.

    Sandro desires Skylar from the minute the stunning veterinarian turns up at his door, but his honor forbids him from pursuing a relationship. But his plan backfires when he starts falling for the forbidden seductress. Until a shocking discovery threatens to tear Skylar from his arms and force Sandro to give up the woman he needs....

Excerpts-
  • From the book



    This was a mistake, Skylar Lawrence thought, climbing out of her car and staring, with increasing foreboding, at the Sagaponak estate--an English-country type, with shingles and lots of points and dormer windows--sprawled in front of her.

    Actually, mistake was the wrong word. A mistake was locking your keys in the car and needing AAA to ride to the rescue, or showing up on Tuesday when you and your pal had scheduled lunch for Wednesday. Under a scenario like that, things could turn out well in the end, and if you played it right, you'd have an amusing story to tell the next time you were forced to attend a cocktail party and needed to fill awkward silences with clever chitchat while you nursed your Cosmopolitan.

    What she was doing now was courting disaster, plain and simple.

    Showing up late at night. Unannounced.

    At the home of her late ex-fiance's fraternal twin.

    But she and Alessandro Davies, a man she'd only met once, nearly two years ago, had unfinished business that couldn't wait any longer.

    Not that she was looking forward to it.

    Nothing good could come of this, her roiling gut told her, and she usually made it a practice to listen to her gut's communications. Usually. Too bad she couldn't this time and had to race, full speed ahead, toward certain and inevitable disaster. Hell, maybe one of the local news stations should send a satellite truck and a reporter to cover unfolding events. It was sure to be quite the show.

    She rang the bell anyway.

    Overhead, the sky was doing crazy and alarming things. Intermittent forks of lightning illuminated forbidding and swiftly moving gray clouds that seemed primed to unleash hell any second. Some patches of the sky were navy, while others were the kind of bottomless black that seemed to belong in the farthest reaches of space.

    The wind whipped her hair to the left, then to the right, and finally threatened to pick up her whole body and smash it into the nearest mature tree. Only her locked knees kept her from becoming like tumble-weed and blowing away. Somewhere behind the house, unseen but violent, the surf crashed against the shore as though it was determined to eradicate the entire beach by morning.

    Shivering inside her jeans now, she wished she'd taken the time to grab a heavier jacket before she had left the city and drove out to the Hamptons, but who expected a near hurricane to hit in the middle of February? If the wind kept up like this, she should probably start worrying about whether the estate had a cellar or not.

    Oh, God, though--what if no one was home?

    She'd be making like King Lear, raging in the storm, wouldn't she?

    She rang the bell again.

    It would have made sense to call ahead, of course, but she'd really been counting on the element of surprise--

    The door swung open with a creak straight out of a Vincent Price haunted-house movie. She froze, her hand raised midknock, and scrambled to get her senses together.

    A man glared up at her from his seat in a wheelchair. His dark hair, buzzed short, was drill-sergeant crisp, as were his white polo shirt and dark trousers. His impressive barrel chest and bulky arms looked as though they belonged to the current heavyweight-boxing champion of the world.

    His legs, she realized, were gone below the knee.

    Her cheeks flamed as she caught herself staring and looked back at his face.

    The flash in his eyes warned that she had exactly one second to state her business and convince him that she meant no harm before he called the police. Actually, no. Something told her that this bulldog wouldn't bother with niceties like...

About the Author-
  • Ann Christopher has been in love with love stories since the fifth grade, when she read Patricia Clapp's Jane-Emily—or maybe it was sixth grade, when she read Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights. At any rate, she grew up, went to law school and worked as an attorney for six years, handling more divorces than she cares to remember. She "retired" several years ago, before the birth of her second child, to stay home full-time, not realizing that being a lawyer was the easier job. After a while, she fired up the computer and began to indulge her passion for love stories and playing with words. Now she writes romances and is much happier focusing on the beginnings of love affairs rather than the endings. She lives in Cincinnati and spends her time with her family, which includes two large, spoiled cats.

    If you'd like to recommend a great book, share a recipe for homemade cake of any kind, or have a tip for getting your children to do what you say the first time you say it, Ann would love to hear from you through her Web site, www.annchristopher.com.
