Royal St. Claire was drawn to Gemma Jacobsen from the start. It was an instant connection that he’d never had with another woman. When she was on her sickbed, he stayed by her side, helped to nurse her back to health and the two became the best of friends. Then that friendship grew into something deeper. Something Royal, the picky bachelor, couldn’t deny. Something he didn’t want to deny. It evolved into LOVE.
Doubts about the relationship and herself plague Gemma’s thoughts. She tries to force the negativity away but Royal’s a great guy, so the thoughts linger at forefront of her mind. A hard life and a caring sister has taught her what true love is – when you love someone more than you love yourself. It’s how she feels for Royal – how she thinks Royal feels for her, but how can he when, in her eyes, he’s the personification of male perfection while she’s just – well – the lighthearted, short-haired sick girl.
Their worlds are blended, but their hearts collide in this friends to lovers story. When there are no limits to a man’s love, is there anything a woman can do to convince him that she’s not his ONE?
