I remember reading a book from this author, A Ravishing Redhead, and liking, but I didn't it more thought until I found A Brooding Beauty free many weeks ago and decided to give it a shot. What a great choice!
Jillian Eaton writes with emotion!! Even when it's a short romance novella, the characters, Catherine and Marcus, are full of emotions! (and passion). After being separated, Catherine wants a divorce, and she's going to get it even if she has to find him in his secluded cottage. Marcus left because he can't trust her, but he wasn't expecting Catherine to follow him and keep asking for a ridiculous divorce!
Both of them still love each other but they don't know. But their passion in there, and after an arrangement of sleeping together for two months before the divorce, will they be able to keep their hands of each other? No, of course not!
I can't say more without giving spoilers but I can recommend you to read the Wedded Women Quartet series. It has real and emotional characters, full of passion ready to explore!
