Love letter to Luc.
Well, Luc and Lia’s romance was never going to be easy. They had a lot of things going against them. Most of which Lia was totally unaware of. So when she did find out, it came as a huge shock, and she just needed some space.
But it wasn’t long before she began missing him madly, and here’s a letter she wrote and tore up—because in the end, it really wasn’t needed…
I said I needed time…
I was wrong. What I really need is you.
But I thought if we had some time apart, then we could work out how we felt about each other. Without the distractions—because Luc, you are very distracting. And maybe I was right, because now it’s so much clearer. And all I can hope is, it’s not too late.
You were so much braver than me. You told me you loved me. And all I could think was—how? How could you possibly love me when my father had caused you so much pain? How could you see past that?
I’d loved you for so long, but I was too scared and too stupid to see it. I thought love was something to avoid at all costs. But then I’d grown up with my mum, and I’d seen what love had done to her. She wasted her whole life on a man who was totally not worth it.
We all have things in our past that are hard to overcome. I watched my mother fade away, and I swore I would never be like her. Never put my happiness in the hands of some man who only wanted his own selfish agenda. But I’m not like my mum, and you certainly aren’t anything like my father (thank god!) and I know my happiness is at the top of any agenda of yours.
I knew you were coming to care for me on the island—how could I not—you showed it to me in a thousand ways. But I was just waiting for everything to go wrong. Because I also knew you were hiding something from me. I thought you were manipulating me, but I’ve come to see (I told you—things are clearer now) that really—you were just as scared as I was.
But I never told you I love you, and that’s tearing me apart. I really, really need to tell you.
I LOVE YOU!!!
There, but I know that’s not enough.
Oh, and by the way—Pete says I’m useless—he says you may as well have me, because right now I’m good for nothing. I fell off my horse twice this morning—he’s banned me from getting on again until I (his words not mine) ‘get my love life sorted out!’
So Luc I know I said I needed two weeks and it’s only been ten days but…
Crap. Okay, I admit it…I made a huge mistake, and I’m coming to see you…
Love, love, love!
Well obviously, what happened next is….

Olivia Brent is happy with her quiet life in the country, until the imminent loss of her home forces her to embark on a search for her estranged father. Catapulted into a world of criminals and totally out of her depth, Olivia is rescued by the stunningly gorgeous and enigmatic billionaire Luc Severino.
Luc has never considered himself a knight in shining armor, and if he had been, then Jimmy Brent’s daughter was the last person he would choose to rescue. But Olivia is the key to finding her father, and Luc is willing to use any methods available, including blackmail, to persuade Olivia to help him find Jimmy and finally put the past behind him.
And if blackmail doesn’t gain her total cooperation, then perhaps a little seduction will…
