Book 2: AN OXFORD REVENGE
Book 3: AN OXFORD SCANDAL
Book 4: AN OXFORD ENEMY
Keira has put a lot of time and effort into turning her home and land into a nature reserve but is now short of cash. Lucas has plenty of money but is lonely so the pair come to an agreement – they will marry and Keira will have the funds she needs and Lucas will have company and the reassurance that his money will be used to preserve nature in the area he loves so much. The bulk of his estate will go to his children so everyone will be happy. Or will they? The 50 year age difference may not go down too well with some and then there is a BIG problem. Lucas’ son turns up to the wedding and the attraction between him and Keira is instant and mind blowing.
There is trouble ahead…
This is a story that is perfect for people who like a good love story with some suspense interwoven between the pages. Plenty going on to keep the reader interested and the description of the area and scenes etc are excellent. I loved the underlying story about reverting to horsepower and allowing nature to flourish.
I really enjoyed reading this so a big thank you to Joffe Books for the digital copy This is my unbiased review.
