Renowned rail designer, Tykira Lowery,
has not set foot in Seattle since she left home for college
years ago – all due to her painful breakup with Quaysar
Ramsey. Out of the blue, the Ramsey Group contacts her with a
challenging job offer that she can’t refuse. Completing this
major, multi-dollar task would make her already successful
business skyrocket to a whole new level. Not about to allow a
grand opportunity to pass her by, Ty decides to return to
Seattle with her business team. She vows to maintain tight
control over her emotions and uphold a professional
relationship with Quay, or better yet, steer clear of him as
much as possible. But, Ty quickly finds out it is much easier
said than done to stay out of Quay’s arms.
Quaysar Ramsey has been in love with Ty
for a very long time; but, he has always been determined to
keep her at a distance. Dangerous threats have been made
against all the woman in his past and he is not about to
endanger Ty’s life. For years, Quay was able to stay away
from Ty; however, when she returns to Seattle at the request
of his twin brother, Quest, Quay finds it difficult to deny
his raging desire to claim Ty as his own. Will the hardship
from their devastating breakup continue to be a major obstacle
between them? And, more so, if by a miracle Quay and Ty are
able to reunite as a couple, will the demon from Quay’s past
resurface and cause major havoc, possibly ending Ty’s life?
AlTonya Washington is back again with her
sequel novel in the Ramsey family saga. A Lover’s
Pretense was just as hot and intense as its prelude.
All I can say is WOW! I loved A Lover’s Pretense!
It seems as if each new segment in the Ramsey family series
just keeps getting better and more exciting. Ms. Washington
has mastered the act of teasing and torturing the reader until
you find yourself rapidly flipping page after page, eager to
see what will happen next. Even though the main feature in
the phenomenal A Lover’s Pretense was Ty and
Quay’s love story; it also revealed the person behind the
murder mystery that carried over from the first novel; touched
on up on Mick and Quest’s life after marriage; taunted about
the future love interests of more Ramsey men and developed
another secret that stemmed from the original anonymity.
Whew! Readers, if you admire a cocky, dominate, suave,
compassionate, sexy-as-hell type of man – then Quay is THE
man. Ty had a lot on her plate in her dealings with Quay,
yet, she handled herself and Quay with class and style.
Although Ms. Washington did an excellent job of giving great
background information, I would suggest reading A Lover’s
Dream before tackling A Lover’s Pretense because
of the continuation of the suspenseful murder mystery and,
more importantly, to experience the satisfaction of Mick and
Quest’s union. A Lover’s Pretense is positively
a Joyfully Reviewed Recommended Read!
