of Leahaven. The pain of Ransom leaving her is now a dull ache.

Devilís Proposal by
Jodici Belle had many elements of a great story! The emotion
created by Ransom and Winifred felt raw and real. There is suspense

and Winifred really fit their personalities bringing everything
around them to life. This historical romance really fit the bill
and I loved every swoop, dance, and kiss Jodici Belle delivered.
