The Pleasure of Her Kiss
By Linda Needham

     Jared Westbrooke, Earl of Hawkesly, has made an appalling mistake. For more than two years, he allowed business to keep him from his hastily-wed bride. Now the time has come to rectify his lapse and make her his wife in every way.

     Kathryn has not spent their separation pining for her errant husband. She has made famine-ravaged Ireland her personal crusade, turning Lord Hawkesly's lodge into a sportsman's resort and his castle into a refuge for the famine's youngest victims.

     Kate's unorthodox behavior enchants Jared and his apparent indifference challenges her. Neither can deny their growing sexual attraction, but can their relationship survive the revelations of secrets, both past and present?

     The Pleasure of Her Kiss is a rambunctiously romantic tale of love and sacrifice for the greater good. Ms. Needham's heroine is feisty, headstrong and devoted; her hero charming, noble and delicious. The plot is wonderfully layered and fast-paced--the love scenes sizzle. Prepare to stay up late; this is a "can't-put-it-down-yet" read.
