ONCE AGAIN A BRIDE
A bit of gothic suspense, a double love story and the right touches of humor and sensuality add up to this delightfully fast-paced read about second chances and love’s redeeming power.
Alec Wylde arrives at his deceased uncle’s estate to find a young, beautiful widow. Charlotte Wylde endured a miserable marriage to a husband who spent her dowry on his collection of artifacts while demoralizing her. Charlotte is finally free. She is none too happy to have his nephew poking about. There is an instantaneous distrust as well as a mutual attraction between them. Suddenly, questions are raised about her husband’s death, the house is broken into and Charlotte finds she needs Alec’s protection. Living together fuels the passion that simmers under the surface and brings danger, since a killer hovers nearby, waiting to strike. (SOURCEBOOKS, Feb., 416 pp., $6.99)
