Summer Seduction

Sunny, sensitive & full of life, Blythe Summerfield was adored by everyone except her mysterious new neighbour. Jas Traherne was the anthithesis of Blythe’s spirit & he seemed determined to keep her at arm’s length. But Blythe was equally determined to free the warmth & passion she sensed behind Jas’s aloof exterior. She succeeded – more than a little – but despite her pursuit &  their blossoming relationship Blythe still felt that Jas held secrets he refused to share, & she feared that if she pushed him too far what she’d unleashed might be more than she could handle.
