Living with your arms wide open...
Widow Rosalinde Wilde is on her way to her beloved sister’s wedding when an unexpected storm waylays her at an overcrowded inn. There she meets a tempting stranger who sweeps her into a night of unforgettable passion.
Lord Grayson never expected a night with the irresistible Mrs. Wilde, but she was a welcome distraction from the unpleasant duty of breaking up his brother’s impending nuptials. He’s shocked when he discovers his passionate lover is none other than the sister of his brother’s intended.
Now Rosalinde and Gray will butt heads, even as their simmering desire for each other threatens to boil over. Who will win? And who might lose it all?
This book was simply amazing! I fell for Rosalinde from the first page on. She is such an amazing and sweet character, I just couldn't help falling in love with her! Well, fortunately I wasn't the only on to do so...
When circumstances - and bad weather - force widow Rosalinde to spend the night at a small inn, she doesn't know that her whole life would change that night. Meeting Gray will change her life, to be exact.
Unfortunately Gray is set on breaking up his brother's engagement with none other than Rosalinde's sister, a fact that doesn't go down well with Rosalinde. Not well at all. But no matter what happens around them, Gray and Rosalinde can't help feeling drawn to each other and soon others start to notice it as well...
I already said that the book is simply amazing, didn't I? Well, it is. Simply. Amazing. You feel the pull, you feel how much they are attracted to each other. I wanted to kick Gray for being so slow to realise that he is in love, I felt with Rosalinde, when she was upset, I hated the sister's grandfather and....well, I really really loved this book. Once started I didn't put it down till I had read the last page.
This is not the first book by Jess Michaels that I've read and it definitely won't be the last. Up to now I've read quite a number of her books and I loved each and every one of them and have read them multiple times. "An Affair in Winter" is definitely one that will never be too far from my mind and that I'll read again ... and again ... and ... The books by Jess Michaels are not just well written but they are also emotional, well constructed, sweet and steamy.
