The Cruelest Stranger by Winter Renshaw

All the angst I expect from a Winter book, some steam, some drama, and a HEA

On a dark, rainy night, Astaire goes to meet a blind date. She was set up by a co-worker. After a stop to make herself presentable after the rain, she sits at the bar waiting for her date. All she knows is his name, he has dark hair, and is over 6 ft. Not altogether down with this after a long day, but she tries anyway. And a case of mistaken identity leads to Bennett and Astaire’s first encounter.

And it is far from pleasant. Their chemistry sizzles.

Except Bennett is a cold, cold man. He trusts no one.

And prefers no one know he’s actually a decent guy. Although he doesn’t think so. He just secretly tries to make up for the karmic evil he feels his family has imparted upon the world.

Astaire on the other hand is a kindergarten teacher. And, despite the tragedies and experiences in her life, she still tries to be a good person. Even to a cold, rude stranger.

No one expects the twists and turns their lives take. They certainly don’t expect to discover all the things that link them to each other.

I loved this one. All the angst I expect from a Winter book, some steam, some drama, and a HEA at the end of bumpy road.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
