Etella Cameron's novels are a little bit wicked, deliciously daring, and irresistibly intriguing. Now she has penned a sweeping, sensual historical novel of a passionate woman and the high-born gentleman she is forbidden to love...
The Wish Club
As children, Max Rossmara, the son of a viscount, and Kirsty Mercer, a tenant farmer's daughter, were unlikely yet inseparable friends. Innocent to the demands of convention, they formed a club for wishing. And each had only one wish: to be together forever...
But Max's family pressured him to live in another world, and leave Kirsty behind. Now, changed from a gentle boy into a bitter man, he returns to his Scottish estate, swearing to make his childhood wish come true. And when he calls Kirsty to the castle to work as his assistant-an unprecedented position for a woman-she warrily goes to his side. How familiar it feels...and how soon pleasure becomes peril when they risk everything to wish again for a world that will let them love.
The Wish Club "Why would a sensible girl of sixteen be playing with a bowl of water?" he asked, going to her side.
"Why, if ye'd eyes t'see, ye'd know I was about an important creation. I'm makin' bubbles," she told him, giggling.
Max studied her face. He had never kissed her. He'd wanted to often enough, but her innocence and her trust in him gave him the strength to resist-so far.
Her gaze didn't waver from his, but she lifted her right hand, the tips of her thumb and forefinger touching, and blew sofly until a bubble trembled between them. Sunlight stroked its rainbow colors. Her generous mouth remained pushed out in a soft "ooh."
He felt his own lips part.
"Make a wish," she whispered. "Go on, Max, make a wish and blow t'bubble away."
