Fallen Angel by Mary Jo Putney

Review of Fallen Angel by Mary Jo Putney

Fallen Angel, originally published under the title Thunder and Roses is yet another great story from the pen of Mary Jo Putney. Never has just one kiss a day meant so much to two people of such differing backgrounds.

Driven by a desire to rescue her village, Claire Morgan, daughter of a Methodist preacher confronts Nicholas Davies, Earl of Aberdare with demands for assistance. Nicolas, in return, offers his aid only if she is prepared to live under his roof, thus ruining her reputation. A great sacrifice for a Methodist teacher, but one Claire is prepared to make for her cause. They agree on just one kiss a day, but the tension of that one kiss ignites their every waking hour, forcing them to fight their ever-increasing attraction.

Never have two people been more destined to be together and the trials and tribulations of their situation serve only to strengthen their bond.

Once again, Ms Putney has given her readers a story of angst, betrayal and love. A definite keeper!

That's brilliant - the tention of a kiss a day - I am jealous I did not think of it first. Thanks for sharing Hazel.
All the best,
