The Second Time I Saw You

The Oxford Blue Series #2


If you can't get enough of E. L. James, Sylvia Day and Samantha Young, you'll love this passionate romance.

It's the beginning of a new term at Wyckham College, Oxford, and a fresh start for Lauren Cusack.

Her fingers were badly burnt when a whirlwind romance with gorgeous English aristocrat, Alexander Hunt, became too hot to handle - and now she's determined to keep her distance.

But her resolve is shaken when Alexander appears on her doorstep, completely torn apart after hearing devastating news.

Lauren knows that she should stay away, but their chemistry is undeniable and she soon finds herself back in Alexander's arms.

Can Lauren handle the drama that comes with Alexander Hunt? Or will she have to sacrifice the most exhilarating passion she's ever known . . .

You won't be able to put down the sizzling second novel in Pippa Croft's Oxford Blue romance series.

  • Croft (mainstream romance author Phillipa Ashley) kicks off her Oxford Blues new adult contemporary trilogy with an angsty yet appealing romance. Lauren Cusack, the daughter of a U.S. senator, leaves Washington, D.C., for a year abroad at Oxford, studying for a master's degree in the history of art and visual culture. Alexander Hunt is a compellingly broken English aristocrat. The author is an Oxford alum herself, and she writes with authority about what happens when an upper-crust Brit meets a fearless American.
