Petra, a seventeen-year-old Dutch-American and the only heir of finance tycoon Roy Van Gatt, has always had her life rigorously planned and supervised by her strict father. From her internship at his hedge fund firm on Wall Street to her degree in economics at Columbia University, Petra is all set for a bright future in finance.

But everything falls apart when she develops a dangerous relationship with her father’s business partner and utmost confidant, Alexander Van Dieren. A Dutch nobleman, known as an unrepentant heartbreaker, twenty-three years her senior, and who is, above all else, her beloved godfather.

A twisted obsession for some, unconditional love for others, but one thing is sure: it’s a relationship that might cost them everything...

This book is intended for mature audiences.

My thoughts…

When I read the synopsis for Blossom in Winter, I liked it immediately and I couldn't wait to start reading. It is a beautifully and expertly woven story of forbidden love, desire, dark pasts, and the lengths one will go to protect everything that matters most to them. This is a romantic thriller that deals with the contentment and pleasure that comes with falling in love and the consequences of a forbidden relationship.

The story is graphic, emotionally charged, provocative, controversial, fast-paced, engaging, and heart-wrenching from start to finish. The characters are all so unique and compelling and they really tug at the readers heart. It’s going to be difficult waiting for the continuation of Alex and Petra’s love story in Lured into Love, expected publications late this year (2020).


  1. I haven't heard of this book before but it sounds great. I think I would want to wait for the next book so I could them back to back.

    1. I should have waited until book two came out, it was just so hard. Now it's hard to wait for book two! I just happened to stumble upon this book through Goodreads, I have not seen it posted anywhere. I hope you enjoy it.
