BOOK ONE in the STEAMY FORBIDDEN ROMANCE series
Coralie Watson, a British thirty-year-old living in San Francisco, has a tormented past with men. Physical and mental abuse, abandonment issues, incompatibility--she feels like she just can't win, and constantly swears to herself that she'll remain single so she can focus on her burgeoning singing/songwriting career. After twelve years in the United States, she often regrets leaving London, her friends, her habits, and dreams of what life might have been like had she not moved.
As she slowly settles into a new routine--and has, so far, kept her vow to stay celibate--her past refuses to give her a break. As she reencounters a former boss she'd had a crush on, someone else resurfaces into her life after many years of silence--a boy she met at fifteen, that she'd had deep feelings for. But now he's all grown-up and irresistibly handsome. She always considered him the "one that got away", and is shocked when he confesses he feels the same way about her. The problem? He's a successful business man who can't afford a scandal, he's married to a supermodel wife, and has two beautiful daughters. Yet none of that seems to stop him from making Coralie promise that next time she's in London, they need to meet and catch up...
What's the harm in that?
This is a work of FICTION. It will have fairly explicit language & sexual content (but I'll put warnings at the top of those chapters, in case those make you uncomfortable--though, hey, YOU CAME HERE FOR THAT, DIDN'T YOU?!)
