PURCHASED FOR REVENGE
Alexei Constantin is looking for revenge, not love, when he shares a brief, passionate kiss with a stranger. Even when she turns out to be Eve Hawkwood, the daughter of his sworn enemy, their unforgettable kiss cannot deter him. Months later, when Eve must beg for his help, he makes an indecent proposal that will change their lives. Purchased for Revenge (2) by Julia James has a sympathetic heroine, but Alexei, despite his reasons, is far too callous and unforgiving in his treatment of Eve to generate sympathy and support. As a result, their romance never takes flight.
