I hope the third is ready to hit stores, as I truly can’t wait to know what happens now.
Why, I have a feeling life is going to throw a lot more confusions as how Dee feels for the men in her life?
Well, looking forward for the third book release Adele Archer.
A complex love story that will leave you wanting more

It turns out you don’t particularly have to be an aficionado of the romance genre to enjoy a love story. How do I know? Because although I most often pass on romance novels, I very much do gravitate toward relationship stories and you’ll certainly find that in American Cousins, second in author Adele Archer’s International Relations series.
Now make no mistake. This is indeed a romance novel, one that brings together the heart and all its subsequent messiness between British native Dee Campbell and American resident Milo Phillips. But, oh my. Prepare yourself for a rich tapestry of conflicting emotions in an even larger cast of characters who may not always be who you think they are. Can we, for instance, spell deceit? Betrayal? Jealousy? Possibly obsession? And that’s just for starters—all carefully concealed beneath longings that would otherwise seem fairly ordinary until you’ve stripped away the essential premise and vows of everyday love between a man and a woman.
Mmm . . . it’s tempting to tell you what happens before and after Dee and Milo marry. It’s tempting to reveal some of the potentially manipulative tactics (or are they?) between friends, lovers, and cousins who may or may not be rivals. However, I’ve never been one for spoilers and I won’t tell you how their marriage upends and then develops further along an uncharted course that will change them both and others along the way. That’s for you to decide.
I will tell you this, though: If you enjoy any kind of novel that doesn’t have a predictable outcome, then Adele Archer’s second novel in the series will satisfy. Actually, it’ll do more than that. It will quite likely make it difficult to put the book aside at the end of a chapter. So don’t. Learn for yourself why American Cousins might just have less to do with geography than with tortured matters of the heart.
