Review: In the Arms of a Stranger by Mary Eason

In the Arms of a Stranger by Mary Eason

Publisher: New Concepts Publishing
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Heat Rating: 2



Everything Kate Bradshaw believed to be real about her marriage to her husband Alex slowly slipped away from her as the newspaper reports explained the sordid truth in black and white. Their marriage and Alex's seduction had been nothing more than a lie, a means of accomplishing one thing--Alex's revenge against the man he believed responsible for killing his one true love--Kates own father.

Clare’s Review

When Kate literally falls into Alex's arms, she struggles to remind herself that love at first sight only exists in the romance novels she's just been stacking on the shelves. Alex is a man on a mission, he needs Kate in order to exact revenge on her father. He just doesn’t anticipate falling in love with her. But when he does he'll stop at nothing to keep her.

Given Kate's history, the speed at which she pursues Alex did surprise me. It would have been nice to see them work things out by some other means than just jump into bed, as they seem to spend half this short there.

I loved the way that love came unexpectedly to both Kate and Alex. Ms. Eason’s characters come alive on the page as they see-saw through the story towards their HEA.
