WITHOUT REPROACH: an adult romance
When wealthy Spanish artist, Juan García, dies, he leaves his beautiful Spanish villa and riding school, to Jenny. She finds this bizarre, because she is English, has never been there, never met him, never heard of him, and is not related to him...
It gets worse as she starts to vaguely recognize certain rooms. Jenny freaks out when she discovers a painting of herself... naked.
Juan’s brother, Eduardo, believes she is a gold-digger and is out to prove it.
Jenny finds herself struggling with him on several levels; his certainty that she had an affair with Juan, his own escalating attraction towards her, his belief that she may be involved with threatening letters against him... but then she starts to get threatening letters too, and it all gets out of hand.
Without Reproach is definitely an adult romance for discerning people. This is not a simple romance, this is a contemporary mystery within an erotic romance - a story of intrigue, deceit, erotic sex, and of course, love. Think Penny Vincenzi.
In Without Reproach, Ellie Jones creates an adult bittersweet story, with an enthralling mystery at its core. If you like sugar-sweet heroines, this is definitely not for you.
This is a story about a contemporary woman with strong feelings, and emotions that must be fulfilled.
From the opening sentence, the central characters of this adult romance are infused with life. As the story unfolds, you become angry, grateful, sad - the full gamout of emotions - and then of course there is spice. If you like your stories hot, you won't be disappointed. If sex offends you, put it down.
Ellie Jones's familiarity with Spain and it's people is evident and lends authenticity to the heroine's emotional journey of discovery. Well worth reading.
