The Markonos Bride


The Greek island of Aristos holds bittersweet memories for Louisa: here she met gorgeous Greek playboy Andreas Markonos – the man who changed her life. After a whirlwind romance they married, and Louisa gave Andreas a precious son. But when tragedy struck Louisa was compelled to leave her handsome husband, and the beautiful Aegean island she’d come to call home…

Now, five years later, Andreas can’t believe that his runaway wife has dared show her face on Aristos again! But seeing Louisa once more makes him realise how much he desires her still. Their separation has lasted long enough! Andreas will reclaim his wife with the one thing that they continue to share…intense physical passion!

Here is a small taster to tease your appetite...

‘You want to re-enact our first time?’ Andreas raked down at her. ‘You want me to roll you down in the ground and lose my head again, re-introduce you to what it is like to have sex with a man out of control?’

‘No,’ Louisa whispered, horribly aware that this was all her fault. ‘I’m s-sorry… I don’t know what came over me. I—‘

‘I came over you. Want came over you. Need - lust. A sudden desire for sex with your hot-blooded Greek!’ His angry contempt whipped her skin. ‘I must therefore assume that your last five years in the sexual company of Englishmen has not been enough to satisfy you.’

‘And what’s your excuse?’ she hit back at the cruel tongued brute. ‘What drove you to respond as you did? A sudden desire to re-enact the deflowering of your teenage virgin?’ She was going to cry any second now. She was going break down and weep! ‘Have the countless lovers who’ve passed through your bed not quite lived up to the excitement of having your very own personally trained sex object, one untouched by another male hand?’

‘Well, I am sure the last part no longer counts,’ he threw back in derision.
