This book was previously published as Virtus, The Sex but has been completely revised and doubled in size with the addition of many new scenes.
When Prince Duncan Caldwell loses his way home and knocks on a stranger’s door, looking to find shelter, he doesn’t know his life is about to change forever. Not because he can’t tear his gaze away from the beautiful woman who opens that door, but more so because she’s a stranger yet he can’t shake the feeling she belongs to him. And discovering she’s been banned from his home can’t stop the vortex of his feelings nor the truth of his world from crashing down on him.
“Good evening, sir.” Lit from behind, a complete stranger stared back at him with huge green mesmerizing eyes. And what he read in them was something so unusual he could not help sinking in it. A mix of relief, happiness, anticipation and so much more jumbled together, so strong, he feared he would drown in it. “May I help you?” As though she realized the effect she was having on him, her expression changed to a faintly mocking one. “Yes, I…” If he hesitated, it was because he was pulling himself together and trying to recover a semblance of control. Too many emotions were surging to the fore all at once that he simply had to stop to analyze the person in front of him. At first glance, he could have sworn he had never seen her before in his life. But the second glance told a totally different story, until awareness hit him like something long repressed or unjustly forgotten. By the gods, I know her! Which seemed as impossible as his getting lost in a territory he knew like the back of his hand. Breath caught in his throat, he checked her over one more time. Young, tall, very slim with well-shaped muscles that testified to a life on horseback, dark hair and extremely beautiful—he could not shake the weird sensation of looking in a mirror, as if she were his reflection or a twin he had somehow lost without remembering where or how. Because something about her colors and general build was impressively like him.
Intriguing excerpt. Just who is she?
This sounds like a visceral recognition of a long lost relative. His sister, perhaps?
This makes me curious. Enjoyed the excerpt!
Intriguing plot. I'd like to read more.
