magnificent ancestral manor But Sophie s vibrancy dispels the shadows in his tortured soul, consuming Kit with a potent desire for the one woman he s forbidden to touch I liked this pretty well I loved the hero We very rarely see British military men in modern romances I could visualize him and his stoic mien and stiff upper lip thing There were enough scenes written in his POV that you could see to the lonely man behind all that The heroine was lovely and you could tell she was a sweet girl and she was also a lonely soul and they were meant to be together.Occasional scenes might have beenconcrete but I know that just the way I prefer books to be and I liked this pretty well I loved the hero We very rarely see British military men in modern romances I could visualize him and his

the book.I have just discovered that this is the first of a two part story which normally I don t like but I was so pleased with this story that I will definitely read the next one, especially since I felt that a couple of threads were not tied up Now I know why The heroine Sophie and the hero Kit meet on a busy north bound train Not only is Kit witness to Sophie s embarrassing state of dress and an awkward phone call but, unbeknownst to either of them, Kit is the brother of Sophie s best friend Jasper Sophie has promised Jasper that she will pretend to be his girlfriend for the weekend as he has not told his rather traditional parents that he is gay But Kit s presence and obvious disdain for her makes Sophie feel very awkward Kit sees Sophie as jus The heroine Sophie and the hero Kit meet on a busy north bound train Not only is Kit witness to Sophie s embarrassing state of dress and an awkward phone call but, unbeknownst to either of them, Kit is the brother of Sophie s best friend Jasper Sophie has promised Jasper that she will pretend to be his girlfriend for the weekend as he has not told his rather traditional parents that he is gay But Kit s presence and obvious disdain for her makes Sophie feel very awkward Kit sees Sophie as just another deceitful woman, but there is something about her that draws him to her and he can t deny the attraction between them Kit has never had a close relationship with this family and finds being back home difficult, especially after his experiences while away on duty with the military All his brooding erupts into a few snatched moments of passion with Sophie, and they soon realise they are both deeper involved with each other than they expected But Kit thinks Sophie is cheating, and Sophie doesn t know how to reveal the truth or get Kit to open up to her.What an amazing book, India Grey has done it again This book has so many good things going for it family secrets, sadness, blazing passion, misunderstandings, humour well, you get the idea I love the military hero, the majority of the recent Modern Presents have had a variation on the businessman hero, so this was really refreshing to read And let s face it, you can t get muchAlpha than a military hero The hero and heroine are perfectly matched the quirkiness and spirit of Sophie is the perfect balm for Kit s brooding and tortured temperament Their snatched moments of forbidden passion are scorching The journey these two go on throughout their love story is so evocative and wonderfully written, I couldn t put it down.I can t wait to read the second part of Kit and Sophie s story, if it is half as emotion packed as this one then I m going to need a seatbelt for the rollercoaster ride.Recommended.Originally posted at I think I was about nineteen when I pretty

authors I ve recently read in other genres I would end up giving it a hopeful 3 stars But I m not comparing.I was feeling restless and grim and India Grey gave me a story light enough and sweet enough to bring me out of the doldrums and get interested in where her characters end up.That s a winner.The story is stock A girl helping out a friend, pretends to be his girlfriend while he figures out how to come out to them about his sexual orientation She meets her friend s half brother on the train and unwittingly earns both his interest and distrust The brothers happen to be the sons of a very rich earl The half brother, sexy and cynical, spends the weekend trying to expose her as a gold digger but ends up falling for her There is the moral dilemma of wanting your brother s fiance and not being able to forget her There is her dilemma of wanting to tell him the truth but not being able to betray her friend In the end it comes down to trust.Throughout the story there were several clues to a big reveal that never came It seemed that the last page had given us the HEA but I was confused What about those clues Thankfully, while searching out other India Grey stories online I came across the second part to this saga In bed with a Stranger.And now I m off to read it The wrong Fitzroy brother Ticket dodging in a First Class train carriage is not how bubbly Sophie Greenham envisaged meeting Kit Fitzroy, fearless army hero and brother of her friend Jasper The smouldering heat between her and Kit is an unwelcome shock especially as Sophie s masquerading as Jasper s girlfriend all holiday Although Kit s bravery is legendary, he s dreading the return to his bleak ancestral home But Sophie s vibrancy dispels the shadows in his tortured soul, consuming Kit with a potent desire for the one woman he s forbidden to touch The FITZROY LEGACY Wedlocked to the aristocratic Fitzroy family where shocking secrets lead to scandalous seduction An unforgettable two part story from award winning author India Grey India Grey wrote a good story about Kit Fitzroy and Sophie Greenham Kit can t stand the fact that he thinks his brothers girlfriend is an unfaithful gold digger, that he wants for himself Since meeting Kit, Sophie hates the fact that she is playing Jaspers girlfriend And then neither can deny the passion between the two. Couldn t wait to keep reading this one Sad once I had finished in only 2 days. An ok story of mixed identities Not really my style, but I think others might enjoy it farthan I did. my review on blog my review on blog I was impressed that this book included a leading woman who wasn t a virgin and a leading man who wasn t either a billionaire, sheikh or prince Not only that, but I was impressed that the author chose to recognize the LGTB community in this book Sophie, the leading lady, came to the Fitzroy castle with her close friend Jasper to ACT in the role as his girlfriend so that he could keep his sexual orientation secret from his family during the course of his father s birthday celebration Problems I was impressed that this book included a leading woman who wasn t a virgin and a leading man who wasn t either a billionaire, sheikh or prince Not only that, but I was impressed that the author chose to recognize the LGTB community in this book Sophie, the leading lady, came to the Fitzroy castle with her close friend Jasper to ACT in the role as his girlfriend so that he could keep his sexual orientation secret from his family during the course of his father s birthday celebration Problems begin to arise when Jasper s brother, Kit, who doesn t know that Jasper is gay, but Kit and Sophie are attracted to each other The author also takes another daring move to these genre of novels by including the death and a funeral in the storyline I like the chances she has taken by breaking away from typical Harlequin Presents plot lines However, one aspect kept me from giving the book a full five stars, and that was it didn t pull on my emotional heartstrings enough My favorite Harlequin presents stories are ones where there s an interaction between the designated lovers that leaves a tugging feeling in my gut and on the verge of tears This story almost had that in a couple of places, but not quite I think part of the weakness with this story for me was that the two characters barely knew for themselves how they felt about themselves or the other person In the stories that seem to work for me like any of Penny Jordan s novels, for instance , there is a lot of self talk exposure of the character s inner thoughts that lead to misunderstandings but also exhibits some kind of self realization, and this novel was lacking in that aspect Craving the Forbidden
