A new must read by Laura Lee Guhrke!! This is the fourth book in the An American Heiress in London Series. It seems like I have been waiting a long time for this story. Denys and Lola are both wonderfully complicated characters that Laura Lee has surrounded with a compelling story of lust, greed, betrayal and love.
Lola is an American in Paris dancing as a can-can girl when she first meets Denys....He is young and lusts after her from the start. Their love affair is an inferno that burns hotter than anything they have ever felt before. All good things come to an end. Denys has alienated his family and mortgaged the estate that was his inheritance to give Lola whatever she wants and now wants to marry her. Denys catches Lola in a compromising position with another man, or does he? Lola knows that Denys will be disowned if she marries him and she doesn't want to ruin his life so she runs away to America with another man.
Years later Denys is a well respected member of Society with a thriving substantial fortune and the respect of his family and his peers when Lola shows up back in his life. She now owns half of his Theater and wants to be an active partner. He thought that he was over her and now he knows that he will never be around her without wanting her. Lola still loves him too but that is not why she has come back. She wants to prove to that she is a serious actress and has no intention of staying in the background. Denys doesn't want to work with her because he knows that she is the biggest vulnerability and is afraid that all the work he has done over the years will be for nought as soon as she touches him.
I absolutely loved this book, and I know you will too. Laura Lee writes a brillant plot that is a page turner with losts of surprises and a great love story. Do not miss this one.
