a Tall, Dark, & Dangerous novel
by M. Leighton
a Steamy Contemporary Romance
From the author of the New York Times bestselling Bad Boys novels comes another dark, sexy story…
Releasing Tuesday, April 5th
Is she brave enough to give her heart to a man she only thought she knew?
He was the most charismatic man I’d ever met. Strong, tough, brave. Bold as hell. Something told me Tag Barton could have anything—anyone—he wanted...and he wanted me. It didn’t matter that he was wrong for me in practically every way possible. It didn’t matter that my father would hate it.
I couldn’t resist him. Even if I’d known who he really was and what he was really capable of.
When he suggested we pretend to be engaged, I thought he was the answer to all my problems. He wasn’t. And, in his wake, he left nothing but scorched earth and me, just another casualty of my father’s war.
Can I believe him now when he tells me he loves me? Or is he nothing more than a beautiful, breathtaking lie?
Review by pearls
The most seductive novel I've read all year. M. Leighton uses all the senses to draw you in. Set in a vineyard, from the sweetness of the grapes to the rainy mud, from the setting sun to the intoxicating smell of his sweat, this novel is a sensory feast. Weatherly doesn't want to be only seen for her money: Tag doesn't want to be overlooked due to his lack of money. Together they can be two normal people in love, but are they Brave Enough to stand together against society? Can they both let down the walls they have built? Even in the most beautiful garden strife exists and bees sting. The author balances this dichotomy well as the main characters learn to balance their physical and emotional needs.
About the Author
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, M. Leighton, is a native of Ohio. She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you'll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren't roaming in that direction, she'll be riding horses, swimming in ponds and experiencing life on a ranch, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.
A note from Michelle: I love coffee and chocolate, even more so when they are combined. I'm convinced that one day they could be the basis for world peace. I also love the color red and am seriously considering dying my hair.
