New York City & Connecticut – Present Day

Champion swimmer Soren Grantham is visiting an exclusive hotel when he hears about a ruckus upstairs where a wedding is being held. He knows the bride is his former lover, supermodel Eliot Gamble, so he races up the stairs to find out what is going on. Soren discovers Eliot in the throes of tears after her fiancé has decided to call off the wedding because she is no longer useful to him. Soren whisks Eliot away to his grandmother’s estate in Connecticut, where he will let her stay with him while she ponders her future. Meanwhile, Soren has his own future to ponder, namely whether he will retire from competitive swimming.

Their time together had been brief, but in JUST A LITTLE JILTED they get a chance to rekindle things after Soren saves Eliot from further embarrassment. She’d started modeling in her teens, but a medical condition has put on a few extra pounds on her frame, which doesn’t sit well in the highly competitive modeling industry. Even Eliot’s mother is harping on her to lose weight, so when her fiancé complains that she is lazy and he no longer wants to be with her, it’s no wonder that she wants to get out of the wedding venue. It’s Soren to the rescue, and it doesn’t take long before they’re making love.

Soren had a second reason why he brought Eliot to Calcott Manor in Connecticut. He has been asked to check out the mysterious woman who is staying with his grandmother. He and his cousins suspect that she is a con artist, and they want Soren to get to the bottom of it. Once he talks to his grandmother, she insists that Allyson is a wonderful person. Will this get resolved by the end of this tale? As Soren decides on whether to retire, he also becomes more attracted to Eliot. Could they be each other’s forever love?

A sizzling romance that starts out as a rescue of an old flame, JUST A LITTLE JILTED is an entertaining read right from the start. Soren walked away from Eliot once because swimming was his life, but now things might be about to change. Will they find a happily ever after together? Find out the answer by grabbing a copy of JUST A LITTLE JILTED.
