When Francesca catches her fiancé in the arms of her roommate, she turns to Carlo for comfort, which quickly ignites into passion. Carlo asks Francesca to marry him, and she counters with The Passion Bargain (4)—she won't marry him but she will live with him. The more time they spend together, the harder Francesca falls, but will she be able to trust again? A sexy tale with exciting characters and edgy chemistry, Michelle Reid's latest is a page-turner with a story that covers the entire emotional spectrum.
