Release day: Rebel’s Bargain
Today is the official release of Rebel’s Bargain by Annie West (paperback, Mills & Boon), part of the Chatsfield continuity. But if you haven’t read the earlier books, don’t worry, this one stands alone. Here’s the blurb:
Five years ago, Poppy Graham married Orsino Chatsfield beneath a confetti of paparazzi flashbulbs. But in her darkest hour, he let her down. Their split was bitter, and Poppy has strived for her independence and acceptance ever since. But now her arrogant husband is back…
Injured in a climbing accident, there’s only one person Orsino can turn to…his wife! They have unfinished business, and he’ll face it before he walks away forever. But the blazing passion between them reignites in an instant, leaving Orsino to wonder whether it will kill or cure!
Annie dropped by today to tell us a little about her book:
I had a ball writing this story. It’s my first full-length reunion novel and I discovered that Poppy and Orsino had so much unresolved emotional history between them that, from the moment they met again, it was like setting light to a fuse and watching the explosions. This book shimmers with sensual and emotional tension and I loved discovering how this flawed but fascinating pair finally got the happy ever after they deserved. Take one scarred and temporarily blinded adventure hero who’s avoided the fallout from his marriage by never being in one place long enough to think too much. Mix with a determined woman who’s spent years focusing on building a career that will provide the security she craves. Throw in a French chateau, a photo shoot full of gorgeous antique jewellery, and a hothouse atmosphere that ensures they can’t escape each other or their desires. Then sit back and watch them combust. I hope you enjoy reading Rebel’s Bargain as much as I enjoyed writing it.
