THE FALLEN GREEK BRIDE
THE FALLEN GREEK BRIDE (4.5) by Jane Porter: Five years ago, as a confused, emotional mess, Morgan Copeland left her husband. Now she’s back, begging him to rescue her infamous father from Somali pirates. Five long years without her has done nothing to quell Drakon Xanthis’ desire. It’s perfectly clear that he is still under her spell — a spell that began with all-consuming passion and was broken by misunderstandings and miscommunication. Porter makes her larger-than-life characters appeal by stripping away the opulent façade to reveal the base emotions everyone understands: hurt, anger and, most of all, love. Add breathtaking vistas and a couple whose explosive intensity is evident on every dramatic page, and you have a winner.
