The Man I Love reads like a historical romance novel. The main characters Raleigh and Wolf meet at a masquerade party attended by socialites, he's from a very wealthy family, but she's from paycheck to paycheck while taking care of her grandmother who has Alzheimer's.
There are places that the story line gets dropped, and a few places in dialogue you're not sure who's doing the talking but other than that the writing is easy to follow.
Ms Lorret has developed strong enthusiastic characters and colorful settings. I would recommend Ms Lorret's The Man I Love to any romance reader who enjoys a happy ending.
She doesn't belong here.
Coerced by a wealthy friend to attend a masquerade with the social elite, Raleigh feels completely out of place. The only thing keeping her here is the mask over her face and the possibility of meeting the dark stranger who stole her attention when she first walked through the door.
No matter what happens by night's end, nothing will change. Her hectic life won't allow time for romance and especially not for love.
He'd rather be anywhere else.
Wolfgang isn't looking to complicate his life. He only wants to have a good time, and maybe live up to the playboy reputation he's cultivated. Unfortunately everyone here at his eccentric mother's party knows him. Everyone except for one. The only thing keeping him here is the prospect of meeting the luscious woman at the door.
However, what he discovers at night's end could be the beginning of the biggest complication he's ever faced.
