Emma Shortt Triumphs again with 'The Kiss'

When Eva Diakou is offered a job on the Winterwood estate, she expects nothing but four months of back breaking work. Jobless and lonely, she has little choice but to accept. But things on the Winterwood estate are nothing like Eva was led to believe. Why has she been given one of the plushest rooms? Why is there nothing to do? And why is she so captivated by the strange statues adorning the estate?
Adam Winterwood is paying for a crime he never committed. Trapped for so many years, he is waiting for the one person who can keep him alive...or set him free. When Adam and Eva meet, sparks fly. Yet, neither realizes the sacrifice they will both have to make.
And it will all be decided by The Kiss.

 My Review:

This is the second book I have read by Emma Shortt and she doesn't disappoint. It was a real page turner and I really cared about the characters and what their eventual fate might be. It could have turned out in one of a number of ways, so the author kept me guessing until the end and I won't spoil that for you here.While the temperature certainly rises during some powerful sexy scenes, these are well written, believable and without a 'heaving bosom' in sight!

A thoroughly enjoyable read and one I would happily recommend (adults only please!) I look forward to her next story
