UNTIL YOU LOVED ME
Novak scores again with a story of two characters damaged by love. Ellie was betrayed by the person she thought she was going to marry, while Hudson was abandoned as a baby. Struggling with their feelings, both are knocked for a loop by an unexpected surprise that will change their lives. Watching the emotion that Novak pulls out of these characters is both fun and heart-wrenching; it’s a talent that not every writer has. Novak is staking her claim as one of the best writers in romance today!
Scientist Ellie Fisher is on the rebound after she finds her fiancé in a compromising position. Usually found in her lab, she lets her friends drag her out to a club, where she meets a sexy stranger. Professional football player Hudson King is in Miami for a game, and his agent takes him out for a night on the town. When Ellie and Hudson meet, they enjoy a night full of passion. Reliving that night is all that Ellie has, until fate intervenes and brings the two back together. (MIRA, Jul., 400 pp., $7.99)
