The S-Factor: Sizzling and Sensual


She’s fallen in love with her husband!

Stavros Denakis is furious when Tessa Marlowe turns up without warning. Even though, technically, they are married, their union was never consummated. Weary and cynical through his experience of women, Stavros suspects the wife he hardly knows is a gold-digger – surely her reason for appearing again out of the blue must be to claim her share of the Denakis millions? But Tessa is a temptation that he can’t resist…

Bedded by her gorgeous Greek husband, Tessa realizes that she has fallen in love with him, and she longs for their marriage to become real. Only Stavros, though he may be passionate in private, remains cold in public, and seems determined that they will stay wedded only in name…

Review: ♥♥♥♥♥

Annie West yet again delivers a passionate love story full of intrigue in the name of Tessa Marlowe. Tessa appears on the eve of Stavros Denakis engagement party and sets in motion a chain of events you won't want to miss. Unexpected wife doesn't even describe it!Stavros Denakis is the Greek alpha like no other who holds himself back when it comes to commitment and love. His father's past history with women have left him scared and resentful so when Tessa appears on his door step, he is not only furious but thinks she has an agenda. Tessa swears she is only here to return the "family" heirloom ring with the family crest.Is this really Tessa? The Tessa he married a few years ago and then he witnessed her accident and death? If this is his wife, then why after all of these years has she appeared on the eve of his engagement to another woman? Why now and where has she been? He is angry, intrigued and she still can make him crazy, peak his interest and cause him to feel desire in ways no other woman has ever touched him.Stavros and Tessa's journey is one incredible ride, full of passion, it’s a tug of war, roller coaster ride all rolled into one. Stavros self discovery in the end, will move the reader, especially when he realizes he cares deeply for Tessa. Well it's something you won't want to miss! Congratulations to Annie West on this moving and emotional love story.

Annie says, “writing Stavros and Tessa's story was lots of fun, though Stavros is such a strong-minded character sometimes it was a challenge too!”
