Take My Hand By Nicola Haken

Take My Hand

Twenty-four year old Dexter Michaels has arrived in the UK for a fresh start - leaving everything and everyone he knows behind in the states. Determined to put right some of the wrongs he'll never be able to forgive himself for making and make his Aunt Sarah - the only person left who still believes in him - proud, he lands in London with the intention of working hard, getting his degree and keeping himself to himself. He can't destroy anybody else that way...
His heart and his body have other ideas however when he finds himself sitting next to nineteen year old Emily Barton in his Psychology class. Moving down south to find her own New Life, Emily is shy, smart and beautiful - everything Dexter knows he should stay away from... everything he knows would be too easy for him to break.
But she makes him feel things he'd forgotten even existed. She makes him laugh, smile, care... forget. Without her trying, and without him realizing, Emily has wound her way into the one place he swore to keep locked away forever - his heart. But can she stay there when she discovers the dark past he's so determined to keep hidden from her? Or will he destroy her too, just like he always expected?
