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...Fans of E L James, Tammara Webber and Beth Kery won't be able to get enough of Pippa Croft's Oxford Blue romance series. The First Time We Met and The Second Time I Saw You are the first two novels in the series, followed by Third Time Lucky, which is also available to pre-order from Penguin. Pippa Croft is the pen name of an award-winning romantic novelist.

She lives in a village in the heart of England with her husband and daughter.

Reviews

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. * Publishers Weekly * A very well deserved five stars, a fabulous emotion filled, dramatic read! -- Jeannie Zelos Book Reviews A very steamy NA with a sprinkling of Downton-Abbey-esqueold money traditions and snobbery. And I freaking loved it. -- Tea Party Princess With a great setting, fantastic characters and a passionate love story, The First Time We Met is a great read in the New Adult genre. -- Chloe's Chick Lit Reviews I absolutely cannot wait for book 3! -- Erin's Choice Pippa Croft captures the overwhelming physical attraction between Lauren and Alexander. It was hot. REALLY hot. -- Kate, Books with Bunny Blogspot
