A powerful Contemporary Romance. Here is the first book in the ‘Whipped’ Series by Lucia Jordan, written in her signature style of high passion and emotion.
‘Burke is the missing piece to Avery’s puzzle, but is he as perfect as he seems?’
Avery Martin’s life screeched to a halt ten years ago when a drunk driver killed her parents, and any hope she had for a normal life disappeared. Now all she has to show for her life is a dead-end job in an antiques store owned by Margot, Avery’s boss that treats her like a slave. She has no idea who she is or what she wants, she just knows something – or someone – is missing from her life.
Burke Stone instantly fell for Avery Martin when he first saw her at the courtroom on the day of his stepbrother’s trial nine years ago. Even through her grief, she was the most demure young lady he’d ever seen, a perfect mix of sensuality and innocence. So when Burke walks into the store where Avery works she has no idea who he is - all she knows is she’s completely entranced by the mysterious stranger’s charm and seductive good looks.
But as the passion starts to intensify, Avery begins to discover the man of her dreams is no stranger at all. Will Avery be able to overcome the tragedy of her past to create a future with Burke?
