Ly she offered him her friendship and trust In return he had aroused emotions in her she was too young to handle wrenching her from childhood to womanhood in a few startling daysWhen he left her Linden. Wow That was intense Heroine was bend on revenge but I guess I can see where she came from Hero was a much older married man who left after he took her virginity She was naive and crazy about him so love turned into hatred It was kind of gross that she dated his son but old school Harleuins are crazy I'm on a Charlotte Lamb marathon

TemptationLibrarian's note The ISBN for this edition is 0373708106 which has also been used for another bookNothing would ever be the same againLinden had only been seventeen when Joss crashed into her life Naive. The 1st 12 was slow but the ultra dwamatic 2nd 12 had the impact of getting hit by a sledgehammer 4 once a CL hero that goes thru the wringer the heroine makes him spin to her tune Hard to believe she could be that purposeful focused methodical in executing her revenge the ripe age of 19 yo I failed to check my pulse B4 after reading this classic but the heady adrenaline rush made me scramble 4 The hero proves that his luv for 22 yrs younger heroine is GR8ER than paternal luv for his son who's dating heroine 'I love U' He said thru' his teeth 'And I'd cut his throat leave him to bleed to death before I let him have U' Guess which 1 he's gonna perform CPR on if both heroine his son are gasping for last breath
