More Than Love

By Denise Robins

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A captivating love story from the 100-million-copy bestselling Queen of Romance, first published in 1947, and available now for the first time in eBook.

Rosalinda Browne's life was a simple one - a secretarial job with
a respected London firm, a plain furnished room, and an occasional
evening alone at the opera or the symphony. Then a chance meeting
brought her face to face with Richard Corrington-Ashe - rich and dashing,
the owner of a prestigious shipping firm. And suddenly Rosalinda's life
would never be the same!

But he was a married man - though his wife had long ago ceased to love
him - and, as Rosalinda's passion soared ever higher, an ominous question
grew; would her heart stand the test of sharing her beloved?
