I look forward to the moment when you know the truth and will grovel at my feet for forgiveness.
The heroine of my debut Presents, Olivia Stanton is loyal, has a big heart discount diflucan that’s gotten her into trouble more than once, and she has just so much love to give inside her but having been forever bullied by a father who’s crushed her confidence, she’s always given it to the wrong man.
From the moment Alexander King, who controls every aspect of his life with emotionless perfection, realizes he slipped the finger on Olivia Stanton, the imperfect twin, the very foundations of his perfect life begin to shake.
He has no idea how to deal with the firestorm that Olivia is. She challenges his every word, and the worst, she challenges every rule and belief he’s built his life around.
Every thing Olivia says, every thing she does increasingly fascinates Alexander until she’s all he can think about.
Breaking all his own rules, Alexander gives into temptation.
But emotions are tricky little things, aren’t they? They don’t stay locked up so neatly.
Beneath Alexander’s controlled exterior is a man whose emotions could wield just as much power over him as Olivia’s do.
Aren’t the ones that have the most to lose that fight the hardest?
But A Hint of Scandal is really about Olivia’s journey to finding her battered self-confidence, towards the acceptance that with all her flaws, she’s more than a match for Alexander is truly a hard one.
Of course, the mighty Alexander does not grovel even when he realizes Olivia is right but then he’s already lost his heart to her, so clearly Olivia is the winner.
Do you like stories where opposites attract and combust? Do you think they happen/last in real life?
