Book 1 of This Man Trilogy, the #1 New York Times Bestselling Series!

Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward--a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire that he stirs in her. She knows that her heart will never survive him and her instinct is telling her to run, but Jesse is not willing to let her go. He wants her and is determined to have her.

About the Author

Jodi Ellen Malpas was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, UK, where she lives with her family. Working for the family construction business fulltime and with the prospect of taking it over once her father retired, she tried to ignore the lingering idea of writing a novel until it became impossible. She finally found the time and courage to release her creative streak and in October 2012 self-published This Man as an e-book. She took a chance on a story with some intense characters, notably Mr. Jesse Ward, the Lord of the Manor, and sparked incredible reactions from women all over the world. Two months later, Jodi made the decision to give up her day job to concentrate on her new and very unexpected career in writing.

Ava O’Shea is a young interior designer. She never expected what she found at the Manor. Ava thought she was just doing a run-of-the mill consultation with a stodgy country gentleman. What she finds instead is Jesse Ward, a pleasure-seeking playboy who is devastatingly handsome and utterly confident and who has absolutely no boundaries. Ava doesn’t want to be attracted to Jesse, but she has an overwhelming desire for him that she has no control over. Her instincts are telling her to run and she knows that her heart isn’t going to survive Jesse. What she doesn’t count on is Jesse refusing to let her go. Jesse is determined to have her.

This is the first book in a trilogy that starts out very hot. If the other books live up to this one this is going to be one trilogy that will be a very hot read. The characters are well written and complex. The reader learns more about Jesse as Ava learns about him. The story takes a few twists and turns that keeps the story moving very well. The story ends with a bit of a cliffhanger that will have readers wanting to read the other books to find out just what happens with Ava and Jesse. The story pulls the reader in and keeps them reading until the very end. It also has some humor that keeps the story from being too heavy throughout the story. It gives the reader breaks from the more emotional parts of the story. It will definitely have readers wanting to check out more from this author.
