AN IMPOSSIBLE ATTRACTION
In her inimitable style, Joyce presents her unforgettable de Warrenes in
a mesmerizing new romance. Her marvelous storytelling, combined with the high level of emotion, makes for a nonstop delight of a read.
Alexandra Bolton promised her dying mother she'd care for the family and give up all thought of love and marriage. Despite Alexandra's long hours spent as a seamstress, her father's profligate behavior soon has the family destitute. To raise the needed funds, her father plans to put her up for sale to wealthy members of the ton. As she escorts her sisters to a ball and becomes ill, Alexandra collapses into the arms of Stephen, the Duke of Clarewood.
Reputed to be the wealthiest duke in England, Stephen does not believe in love and thinks what he feels for Alex is nothing more than lust. She realizes that she's fallen in love, but a future together is impossible. As their deeply moving relationship reaches a climax, Stephen realizes how desperately he needs Alexandra's strength of character and love to survive. (HQN, Mar., 423 pp., $7.99)
