Intimacy with Jacob is greater than Vivienne expects, and she is hopelessly in love.
Now she has to find a way to deal with the potent combination of love and submission. But Jacob doesn’t return her vow of love. And after a romantic trip to Tuscany, she fears his dark past has closed his heart to love, forever.
“If there was one thing Vivienne recognized, it was the love in her heart. There was no mistaking it for something else, as much as Jacob might like for that to be the case. He couldn’t deal with having Vivienne fall in love with him, and she was sure the reasons were complex.
Yet her feelings couldn’t be turned on and off like a water faucet. They ran deep, and were lasting. The love she felt for Jacob only grew, despite the distance he tried to put between them. It was frustrating that he couldn’t open his heart, or at least try. But Jacob remained convinced that the passion of the playroom had stirred too much emotion, and that she’d mistaken the intimacy they shared with love.”
Will Jacob allow love to blossom, or deny its existence?
