Self-made shipping magnate Joseph Chance never planned on falling in love. He simply needed financing for a new business venture and a marriage of convenience provides it. Then he meets Tessa St. Croix, his future bride, and is instantly smitten. But when the angelic beauty reveals a life-changing secret on their wedding night, Joseph thinks maybe some dreams shouldn’t come true. He leaves England, reconciling himself to a detached, convenient marriage after all.
Eleven months later, Tessa Chance has built a new life for herself in the heart of London. She’s learned her new husband's business and is determined to support herself and her responsibilities. When Joseph returns to London unexpectedly, nothing is as he imagined. His estranged wife has become the one person who can help him secure his company’s future, and her allure can tempt him still. Determined and hopeful, Tessa jumps at the chance to prove herself and justify the secret that tore them apart.
Although bruised pride and broken hearts lie between them, Joseph and Tessa realize the love they once felt has never truly left. If they can learn to forgive each other, they’ll soon discover the truest love can heal all wounds.
Love Conquers All
This couple works to turn a relationship that starts with secrets and doubts into an open, loving marriage. Slow burn with a purpose. These characters are both flawed and perfect for each other.
This book was a page turner for sure. I couldn’t wait to get to the next page. I was captivated from the first sentence.
Charis Michaels has proven to be a wonderful romance writer!!! February, 2019, cannot get here soon enough. I’m sure Sabin’s story will be just as interesting as Willow’s and Tessa’s!!!
