FROM POPULAR ROMANCE AUTHOR AURORA RUSSELL
Veronica's new job comes with a darling little boy, a Gothic castle and...a beast?
When recently laid-off Francophile Veronica Carson is recommended for an au pair job by the elegant leader of her French conversation group, she isn't sure what to expect—but a Gothic castle deep in the wilds of Maine is certainly not it. Still, she's drawn in by her joyful little charge, Jean-Philippe, and even more drawn to his brooding father.
Ruthlessly successful businessman Alain Reynard has loved before and has no wish to repeat the painful experience. The tragedy of his recent past is still fresh in his mind, and he wants nothing to do with his son's lovely new au pair. Despite his best efforts, though, he can't seem to get her off his mind.
A passionate romance begins to blossom but is put to the test when painful reminders of Alain's past return. As ugly rumors swirl, the truths of the past and the present collide. Veronica must decide if Alain really is a beast and, if so, whether she can love him enough to break through the dark memories and secrets that tether him to what once was.
This was such a romantic book. When Francophile comes to be the au pair for Alain’s darling son, she gets quite attracted to Alain himself, while others might consider him to be a beast, she saw a different side of him and it was interesting to see how she responds to it. I felt like Alain might be a bit of a grisly business man, but he had a heart of gold. Can she find love with him?
