The award-winning, nationally bestselling author of sixteen novels, Susan Johnson is "best known for her erotic love scenes…" (Publishers Weekly). AGAIN AND AGAIN gives readers everything they expect from this skillful storyteller – and more. In the midst of a blizzard, Caroline Morrow's coach is waylaid at an inn on the outskirts of a small village. More happy than annoyed at the unexpected stop, she basks in the warmth from a crackling fire, until a voice from the past sends a chill down her spine. Lord Simon Blair emerges from the shadows – still handsome, still powerful. In a moment, recollections of their sensuous affair scorch the space between them, even though their liaison ended badly – with his infidelity and her flight into marriage. Now divorced and nearly penniless, Caroline cannot hide her dire straits from her former lover – or the thrill that courses through her at the sound of his seductive voice. An evening spent at cards becomes a night spent in bed, which turns into days of tantalizing bliss. But Caroline must make her escape. Tearing herself from Simon's arms, she finds her way to her new employer and takes up her new position as governess, only to learn that her surrender to Simon has whetted his appetite for more. And the chase is on.
