A BARGAIN WITH THE ENEMY (4.5) by Carole Mortimer: Bryn Jones knows that Gabriel D’Angelo is no angel. He was ultimately, albeit indirectly, responsible for her father dying in prison. So how can she still want him? Gabriel knew from the start who Bryn really was. He wonders how the artist became desperate enough to deal with him, the devil of Archangel Gallery, and if he’ll ever be able to taste her decadent lips again. Can fierce adversaries ever be lovers or will the past always haunt them? Mortimer’s opulent scenes enhance the flavor of this exceptional romance. Her frenemies enchant from beginning to end, and their dialogue is bitingly realistic.
