The One That Got Away

Kelly Hunter. Harlequin/Kiss, $2.59 mass market (224p) ISBN 978-0-373-20700-8
Hunter (Cracking the Dating Code) launches Harlequin’s Kiss contemporary romance imprint with an emotionally powerful and beautifully rendered love story. Evangeline Jones spent the best and worst week of her life exploring kinky sex with Logan Black. Eleven years later, she’s a confident and successful business woman. When she agrees to marry her business partner, Max Carmichael, so he can access his trust fund and invest in their company, he introduces her to his family—and Evie is shocked to learn that Logan is Max’s half-brother. Brooding, controlling Logan will do anything to get Evie out of his life again before she realizes she’s the only one who can get under his armor. Evie and Logan’s smart, snappy banter quickly explodes into achingly satisfying lovemaking, but tentative steps toward a relationship are hindered by old demons, secrets, and fears. Readers who thrive on empowered women and dangerous men will relish this carefully crafted, intense romance with a modern, relevant voice, which sets a very high bar for the Kiss line. Agent: Jennifer Schober, Spencerhill Associates. (Feb.)
