STORY: Fate has brought them together—again.
At one time, Jemma meant the world to Dane Pendleton, but then she betrayed their young love.
Now Time has turned the tables. Dane is wealthy, respected, and knighted, while Jemma has nothing but her pride.
His honor for hers …
Dane’s name is on the lips of every beauty in London. They whisper that he learned “tricks” while he was in the Orient. But has he forgotten Jemma and what they once meant to each other?
And will he accept her devil’s bargain?
In every woman’s life, there is that one flame who slipped away. The man who makes her wonder “what if?”
But is this a momentary madness or a chance to rekindle a love that could last a lifetime?

REVIEW: This is one of those stories that is easy to get through and you’ll be able to read it in one sitting. yet it was well written and paced so that it actually felt longer than it really is.
Characters are all three dimensional and plot is plausible and entertaining, and I thoroughly enjoyed the complexity of Jemma and Dane’s relationship.
If you’re into complex relationship stories, and especially “second chance” tropes, I am sure you’ll really enjoy this angst, loss and redemption filled tale.
Also, if you’ve never read this author before, this short novella is perfect for you because it will only whet your appetite for this author.
