This week, I’m featuring Judith McNaught.
Once and Always, re-published in April 2006
“Once and Always,” one of Judith McNaught’s most masterful and moving love stories, powerfully brings to life the fiery passion of a free-spirited American beauty and a troubled English lord.
Across the vast ocean sailed Victoria Seaton, a free-spirited American beauty left suddenly orphaned and alone. Eager to claim her long-lost heritage, she was amazed at the formal elegance of Wakefield, the sumptuous English estate of her distant cousin…the notorious Lord Jason Fielding. Sought after at plays, operas, and balls by London’s most fashionable ladies, Jason remained a mystery to Victoria. Bewildered by his arrogant demeanor, yet drawn to his panther-like grace, she came to sense the searingly painful memories that smoldered in the depths of his jade-green eyes.
Unable to resist her spitfire charm, Jason gathered her at last into his powerful arms, ravishing her lips with his kisses, arousing in her a sweet, insistent hunger. Wed in desire, they were enfolded in a fierce, consuming joy, free at last from the past’s cruel grasp. Then, in a moment of blinding anguish, Victoria discovered the shocking treachery that lay at the heart of their love…a love she had dreamed would triumph…Once And Always.
Another Judith McNaught winner! She writes books that are some of the most heartbreaking and epic love stories I’ve ever read and ONCE AND ALWAYS is no exception. Your heart will fall in love with them, break for them, bleed a bit (or a lot) for them, and be filled with joy for them.
Have you read this book? What are your thoughts about it? I’d love to hear from you guys.
