Blurb: SHE'S STEALING HIS HEART . . .
Vintage boutique owner Venus Smith is stunned to realize her newest acquisition comes with a larcenous legend. Stolen years ago, the antique mermaid brooch belongs to the Clayworth family. The right thing to do would be to return it, but that means facing Connor Clayworth O'Flynn, the sexy department store heir Venus has had an unrequited crush on since childhood-and the man who helped ruin her father.
ONE KISS AT A TIME
Connor knows that Venus has never forgiven him for what happened between their families. But business isn't personal, even though Venus's father's betrayal still cuts him like a knife. So when Venus proposes a deal-she'll return his family's brooch if he helps clear her father's name-he reluctantly agrees. As action-packed days turn into flirtatious fall nights, it isn't long before old memories resurface . . . and new desires ignite. Can two young lovers leave the past behind? Or must they first admit that all they've ever really wanted . . . is each other?
Review: This was just one of those stories that nailed me from the start :)
I loved it all. The journey, the characters, the love. Attention to detail was amazing. Great plotting and story-telling made this one a winner for me a hundred times over. So real at times that I found myself emotionally envolved with the characters and the actions.
Ms Bodine has found a reader for life in me. You can bet that I will keep an eye out for more works from her, because if they are half as good as All I Want is You....Then I want them all :)
