Loving & Giving

By Denise Robins

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A captivating love story from the 100-million-copy bestselling Queen of Romance, first published in 1966, and available now for the first time in eBook.

Friday's child is loving and giving. Juliet had devoted her life to the care
of crippled and deprived children. But when she left London to work in the
South of France, the phrase was to take on a deeper meaning. For Julia's
new life was to bring her too much love, and too much pain, when she fell
in love with a man who belonged to someone else.

Juliet had always thought of love as a sacred bond and of marriage as an
oath she would never break -- and she promised herself she would never
love a married man. That was until she met Lucien de Maureville -- a gentle
husband betrayed by a faithless wife and a lonely, tormented man caught
between Juliet's budding love and a promise she hoped never to break.
