Vintage. Apr. 2019. 498p. ISBN 9781984898326. pap. $16.95; ebk. ISBN 9781984898333. EROTIC ROMANCE
Maxim Trevelyan was always destined to be “the spare”—not the heir—to the title of Earl of Trevethick. When Maxim’s older brother, Kit, dies unexpectedly in an accident, all of that changes. Suddenly the playboy younger brother not only inherits the title and money but all of the associated responsibilities. Reeling from grief, Maxim pours his heartache into composing new music. He is lost until his new housecleaner, Alessia Demachi, an immigrant from Albania, enters his world. She is reserved and beautiful, and when he hears her play his piano, he comes undone with emotion and desire. He has never felt this kind of connection with any woman, but he soon realizes that she is not just shy but also very frightened—running from a dangerous past that is catching up with her. As their worlds collide, and feelings deepen, will love be enough to save them both?
VERDICT James, well-known for her best-selling “Fifty Shades” series, brings readers a novel of suspense and sexual awakening. Although the storyline is fairly predictable, fans will not be disappointed with the slow-build crescendo of Maxim and Alessia’s erotically charged romance.
