Description

Paris, France, and attractive, vibrant 26-year-old Sloane from Stamford, England, meets Nicholas, a writer and artist from Boston, USA, and ten years her senior. The attraction is immediate. Sloane believes that she has found the love of her life. But as the days pass, it becomes clear that things are not quite as they seem. Christmastime in New York and Nicholas and Sloane are finally making plans. Their fixation, one with the other, is overwhelming. But fate has a way of disrupting what they are certain is meant to be - and disaster is on the way. Telling their story to 'Em', Nicholas and Sloane recount their first meeting, their thoughts and actions and the tale of their passionate affair, delving ever deeper into the dark and sinister side of compulsive love. What is it that is driving them, why is it so urgent - and who is the mysterious Em? Jae De Wylde explores the raw emotion of obsessive love and the power of perception in this poignant, compelling and splendidly-paced tale of secrets, lies, blame and guilt with its bitter, heart-breaking twists. 'A powerful account of how obsession, passion and greed take over lives - and the consequences of disregarding the impact of actions on the lives and feelings of others.' Janna Gray, author, Kilingiri '... an emotionally intelligent page-turner.' Leslie-Ann Bosher, author, To The Manor Drawn 'An atmospheric, haunting love story that kept me constantly guessing. I loved how time flowed effortlessly. I was moved to tears.' Lynda Renham, author, Croissants and Jam
