(White Lies Duet #1)
by Lisa Renee Jones
Book one in the sexy and scintillating new White Lies duet by Lisa Renee Jones!
There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.
The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for her.
There’s nothing more than Faith Winter wanted to do but to make sure her father’s winery was saved and secured. Having no access to her late mother’s bank accounts, she knew she had to set aside her dreams of art and be the woman that could annihilate her problems, by hook or by crook.
The Tiger, Nick Rogers knew something about the wine princess more than she herself could acknowledge. The more secrets he tried to uncover, the more lies he kept on telling her, and the more intense he was feeling about Faith. For she had that power to make his knees weak and his thoughts filled with her, every single night and day. As provocative as Faith Winter was, Nick Rogers would use all available resources to find out everything about her and her involvement in his father’s life..
Provocative is the first book in the White Lies series, and it already had me swooning for the Tiger. His attraction to Faith is palpable and expected, and his energy, raw, poignant and undeniably stimulating. Love that his relationship with Faith wasn’t rushed, but grew into a more intimate connection, sans the lies and secrets on both ends.
I love how this was told in dual points of view, we get to dig on Faith’s conflicting feelings and pick on Nick’s brains. I love how Lisa Renee Jones wrote the story with provocative intentions – to make the reader gasp and grasp for breath and to let us know that there’s much more to come.
The murder, the intrigue, the lust and lies, the connection, the intimacy, the chemistry and the passion, everything was off the charts. And more provocatively so. Can’t wait to read the next book!
