Gemma Picton works for self-made billionaire Jack Grant, a sexy
boss she considers off limits, even though he’s hotter
than a roaring fire beneath a burning desert sun. She doesn’t
want the complications that marriage entails or children,
especially considering her own childhood. Nor does she want
or need his money for, as Lady Gemma Picton, she comes from
a wealthy royal family. She also abhors her parents’
anniversary gatherings, which explains why she spends most
of that gathering with her Duchess Grandmother.
But despite her best attempts, when Jack’s
teasing banter becomes the real thing, he’s far too
hard to resist.
Jack has had numerous one-night stands in
an effort to forget the death of his wife Lucy and the life
he no longer has. Jack realizes that Gemma is different than
the other women he’s had. She’s efficient and
darn good at her job, but more importantly, he realizes he
can’t just make love to her and walk away. He wants
more from her, and he’s concerned that she, in turn,
will want more than he can give her. That fear escalates when
Gemma makes it clear she wants to understand the ghosts that
Off Limits sizzles in all the right places,
but it’s more than an erotic romance. It’s the
story of two wounded people who learn to break down barriers
and share the emotions that plague them. I thoroughly enjoyed
the playfulness, the sexiness and that insatiable hunger that
ultimately drives these two lovers together, despite the many
emotional obstacles that are in their way.
Notes: Off Limits is a free kindle download,
and is one of four digital books being sold in a boxed set
by Harlequin in their new Dare series. Considered a contemporary
romance, it has more than a hint of erotica, as do each of
the four Dare novels.
