Joss McNab is a highflying surgeon and teacher trying to emulate her perfect father. What she hasn’t got is the perfect wife by her side, supporting, arranging and managing the rest of her life. So her Southern Belle mother arranges one for her; Sarah, an attractive, interesting artist to take to events without any emotional tied or expectations, it’s purely a financial arrangement.
Of course this is a lesbian romance so that was never going to happen, and as the story progress’s the emotional and physical feelings get more complex and more impossible to ignore.
Joss is on a journey of discovering what she really needs and wants from her life, and at the same time finding out that the façade of her parents life wasn’t always what it seemed. Sarah has her own battles to fight against a father who has always belittled her art and controled her with his money.
There is rather a lot of ‘should I shouldn’t I’ introspection and soul searching, but the story is good, the characters are interesting and the plot a slightly unusual twist on the normal lesfic romance. As always Ms Richardson writes great sex scenes and builds the tension of the plot throughout, with a credible conclusion.
Definitely an enjoyable read and another well written romance from a solid and reliable author.
