“Where is your son now?”
“And you think a god can tame him?”
“A certain god. One who might have been born with a gift but should have been born a doxie. I've studied you, Alton. I've studied all of you. This god is unique. I'm not asking to take him away forever.”
Oh I can’t wait to see how that relationship develops. ❤️
Reread in December 2018/January 2019 on Audiobook:
This was great on audiobook. Xe Sanders has a great voice for both male and female voices. She makes the hero sound purringly sexy and her accents are great too. Listening to this reminded me of how fantastic a writer Anne Stuart is. I can never get enough of her writing.
This is a nice sort of homage to "Like Water for Chocolate" or "Simply Irresistible" but without magic. I love that Sophie's thing is cooking. In the kitchen and in the bedroom with the sizzling hot Alexander. As always the banter and flirting is superb, but then it's an Anne Stuart romance. When all three of the couples (Russell sisters and their spouses/beaus are together, it's magic).
My Casting Choices:
Henry Cavill and Alexander, Lord Griffiths
Clare Bowen as Sophie Russell
