Alexandra doesn't ask much of life. Shy and self-doubting,
she lives in a quiet seaside village in Wales, working as
the local librarian. The only thing she needs in her life
is "Roger" her vibrator. Even a relationship is not
something she is interested in.
When her beloved "Roger" breaks permanently, she ventures
into the city for a replacement. Since her friend Robin
isn't home, she checks into a hotel. When she is awoken
after a interlude with the room's rightful owner, Solomon,
she realizes that "Roger" is now rendered obsolete. They
spend a glorious night together, and she is gone in the
Solomon Avery is a notorious playboy and multi-millionarie
is not about to let Alexandra go so easily. At least not
until he has had his fill of her. Posing as a carpenter, he
buys the house next to her. His plan is simple, get
Alexandra back in his bed, get his fill of her then return
back to his normal life.
Alexandra is nothing like any other woman he has been with.
She is not interested in his money, hell she doesn't even
know he has money. Before he realizes, he has fallen in
love with her.
As much as Alexandra has wanted to just have Solomon in her
bed, she has fallen in love with him. When Sue, a woman
from Solomon's past shows up at his house, Alexandra can't
help but feel her heart breaking. Instead of facing Solomon,
she disappears. She quits her job and moves out of her
apartment, leaving no clue to where she went.
Solomon has checked everywhere for Alexandra. He has no idea
where she went, until he gets a call from him best friend
and business partner, Callum. He had found Alexandra at one
of the last places he expected to see her, at an Avery
Hotel. Now he must convince Alexandra that he does love her
and everything Sue had told her wasn't the truth.
I really enjoyed PROMISES, by Ellen March. Although both
main characters had explosive personalities, and got angry
quickly, they were also funny and well written into the
story line. Ellen March is a new author for me. I really
enjoyed her writing style and the quirkiness of her
characters. Ellen March is certainly an author whom I will
be checking out other titles from.
Shy and self-doubting, Alexandra doesn't ask much of life.
She exists quietly in a small seaside village in Wales,
working in the local library and keeping company solely with
'Roger,' her vibrator. When Roger breaks down, she must go
to the city to seek out his replacement. Alex's visit goes
spectacularly awry when she stumbles into the wrong hotel
room, where she enjoys a blissful interlude with the room's
rightful occupant, Solomon, who she initially mistakes for a
vivid dream. Sol's skills quickly render Roger obsolete, but
Alex isn't about to let a man--not even one as gorgeous as
Sol--get under her skin.
Relationships are not for the likes
of her. Sol, a notorious playboy and multi-millionaire
hotelier, isn't about to let her go so easily--not until
he's had his fill of her. Posing as a simple carpenter, he
rents the house next to Alex in Brindley Bay. His plan is to
conquer her quickly and return to his real life in a week or
so. But Alex is nothing like his other women. For a start,
she's not interested in money. More than that, serious money
makes her extremely uncomfortable. And she values honesty
above all else. Before he knows it, Sol has promised to love
her forever--a promise he fully intends to keep. But what
will Alex do when she inevitably uncovers the elaborate
skein of lies he has spun, simply to bed her?
