Entrancing, lovely, gripping Beauty & the Beast fairy tale! 4* indeed!

Sheikh Azim al Bahjat, stood erect, still and his face was grave and unsmiling. His eyes were black and opaque; his hair was cut close, he had broad shoulders, tapering narrow hips and, long, powerful legs. He was however an attractive man, his features even and his mouth had a mobile, sensual curve. His voice, when he spoke was clipped and cold. ‘We will marry in one week’s time’.’By my side, in the palace harem----or in my bed’. ‘This man, who had not spared her so much as an introduction, who barked commands, whose smile seemed cruel, was going to be her husband.’ On the other hand , at first sight he saw,’ hidden from her view Johara, his bride to be, step out with her slippered foot first, small and dainty, a slim golden ankle, her form willowy and enticing and hair as dark as ink. She had large, clear grey eyes, framed by sooty lashes and gently arched brows’.’A pert nose, delicate cheekbones and full pouty kissable lips’. She ‘was gorgeous,’ innocent and sensual ‘and she didn’t even realise how alluring she was.’ Azim ‘gave her a single, blazing look.’ While she thought, ’had his lips really been that full?’
Her winsome, gentle ways will win the romantic, independent, readers who will become Johara’s admirers and try to win Johara’s battles for her! While the Sheikh’s ‘scar which snaked from the corner of his left eye to the curve of his mouth still looked red and livid’, may be off-putting for many readers, as they long for perfection in their Alpha macho hero. However not withstanding that scar, the plot is enticing and engaging, the linguistic style of the use of irony, wit, sarcasm, banter will bring chuckles to the readers. Phrases such as, ‘Azim laughed softly,’’ whispered close to her ears’, ‘growled angrily’, will entrap the readers into their problems of mistrust and suspicions about each other. The readers will empathise and identify with these larger than life characters! A pleasure to read this last duet about the Sheikhs and keep it in either a paperback or in a kindle in one’s home library. Superb indeed!

She possessed feminine perfection of form, he had seen many times before yet he found waxing rhapsodically over hair that flowed around her shoulders, as if the copper was redder or perhaps brighter’.’ Valentine ( Natalie) smiled and a gleam he had never seen, before kindled her eyes which must have been that remarkable shade of green’.’Natalie, unbeknown to him, appeared to be teasing him was astounding, nonetheless’. While to her Natalie, he was well over six feet, with hard, strong shoulders , a leashed , humming sport of power, dark chocolate eyes, lean and rangy hard male beauty that a woman could lose herself into .His hands were large and aristocratic, his voice was an authoritative rumble and his gaze was shockingly direct.’ He was ‘upsettingly----almost, incomprehensibly—stunning’. ‘Rodolfo simply, reached over and picked the princess up from the settee, hauling her through the air and setting her across the lap’. Now read on the romantic fans of Caitlin Crews and see what is in store for you all!
Caitlin Crews has an engaging plot so though, there are some extra threads that get enmeshed in the story- line, that becomes a bit deviating! The linguistic styles employed by the writer are very interesting and brings forth plenty of chuckles! He said to her, ’snarling, like it or not you are mine’. Then again,’he laughed with a wry amusement’. Rodolfo was ‘magnetic’.
The problems have to be solved in one way or the other and is like a fairy tale and will keep the readers totally hooked by the end of this first story in the duet of the Scandalous Royal Brides duet. Brilliant and well written to be worthy to buy and enjoy the stories!

‘Alice looked up to see Cristiano framed in the door, his chocolate-brown eyes as hard as two black bolts.’ ‘Alice intuitively felt who he was even before she saw him as the air was pulsing with crackling electricity!’ She told her assistant, ‘Tell him I’ll be ten minutes’. Prompt came the answer, ‘You can tell me yourself’. What a wonderful way to start the opening sentence between ex -lovers of the past! ‘Cristiano’s towering frame, commanding air, jet- black hair’, made Alice feel the floor was shifting beneath her feet.’ Alice asks him, ‘What brings you here? Personality makeover?’’His eyes nailed hers’.’Hard eyes’. Back then, seven years ago, he had looked at her with tenderness, with gentleness, with love’. ‘A love she had thrown back in his face.’ His expectations now meant ‘she had to be engaged to him for a month? Married for six’.' Six seconds would be too long for Alice!' His arrogance demanding her acquiesce 'made her furiously angry'. He held her look and said, ‘The marriage won’t be consummated’.’It will be a marriage in name only’. ‘He knew how much sensual power he had over her. She too could see it in the glint in his pitch-black eyes.’ Married for six months to her mortal enemy? Game on.'He had an unnerving ability to get her to do things she had no intention of doing!'
For him , ‘her indifferent poise, her cornflower-blue gaze, the way she looked down her aristocratic nose at him, her lissome and gorgeous figure , her unusual silver-blonde hair with the creamy, ageless perfection of her skin, gave her a stunning appearance that took his breath away’. There it was her beauty of seven years ago as enticing for him as ever!
The author’s writing skills are superb and enticing on its own merit! It will make the reader want to read engagingly because of the linguistic style! Here are a few examples: ‘casual amusement’, deep gravelly cadence of his voice’, ‘he used sarcasm instead of emotion’, ’better to be cutting and mocking’ are some of it used by both Alice and Cristiano to continue their verbal sparring and indulge in ‘cutting comeback’. Their problems are no doubt resolved by the end of the story and it leaves the readers with a feel good factor! Brilliant and a must buy indeed

Angelina ‘had vibrant, sensual beauty which had haunted him every time he thought about taking another woman to bed. She on the other hand took in the tall, dark –haired , olive –skinned male, to gaze at his dark, hard eyes as treacherous as black ice.’ ’What are you doing here, Lorenzo?’’His lethally handsome face twisted into a mocking look’. He had hardened into an even more dangerously attractive version of the man she’d known’ .He stepped closer, six foot three inches of far too intense male vibrating with an expression of leashed aggression’.’We are still married, Angie’. She would always be his. ‘Always Angelina . Never anyone else.’ ‘All I can see is those beautiful blue eyes of yours and those vows we recited...’he said huskily to her. ’I hate you,’ she breathed. ‘I really do’. His mouth twisted.’Sometimes I really hate you too, tesoro’. She was still the most exquisite woman he’d ever known’.’You haunt me, Angelina, every time I’m with another woman’. ‘Where has the light gone? The vibrant, spirited woman I met that night in Nassau’. ‘Angie had this ability to mesmerize any red-blooded male with whom she came into contact’. Dancing with her husband was ...electrifying’.
The writer has all the ingredients of a Modern genre, sensual, irresistible temptation between multibillionaire tycoon and equally pretty heroine with wry wit, ironical statements and banter to exchange with each other, to resolve their issues and end on a happy note by the end of the story! However the plot has circles within circles and a single thread becomes entwined quite a bit so that the main thrust of the plot gets lost! If one can overcome ‘this’ then it is an entertaining story!

The tycoon, ‘Rowan was gorgeous, with his deep tan, sun-streaked hair, arresting light green eyes which was icy, contemptuous and so very dismissive, framed by black lashes, yet very compelling so that you couldn’t look away. She’d bought him because he was tall and broad shouldered, had intense male energy, his innate confidence was apparent and he was by far the most primal, the most sexual amongst them all. She watched him and she wanted him.’ ’Looking back three years later, she recognised the smile for what it was – mockery!’ Rowan had been watching the emotions flit across her face----- it was a stunning face. It wasn’t just her bone structure, it was the whole package. He noticed the long, thick honey hair, her wide-set blue eyes, the sweep of her brows, the dark pink lips above a resolute chin.’ Rowan gave her a smile, making him look younger, freer and sexy.’ ’We were good,’ he said still smiling with his lazy drawl. A lethal man’.’He was powerful from the top of his head to the intense gold of his eyes, to the tip of his toes.’ ‘He remembered she was pretty, but had forgotten how her beauty was such a physical thing.’ This woman standing in front of him was sexual, no doormat, exuded power and resolve with the light of battle illuminating her stunning features!
The insurmountable issues have to be solved but there is the mutual trust they need to have between them which they lack .Here the writer’s skill of witticism, banter, constant argument to score a point over each other will keep the readers engrossed in the story line and not let them go. The characters develop, through very rapid events and it ends with icing on the cake in the Epilogue! A stupendous story indeed! Go for it!

He was just so dominant, so incredibly overwhelming.’ Now at the present moment after a year or so has passed by she ruminates, ’What if Leandro discovered that he had a son?’ With total disbelief he says to her. ‘So you tell me that I have a son?’’What if she was telling the truth?’

‘Her plain blonde hair fell in a silken curtain, framing her exquisite face with its elfin features and a wide mouth that was entirely sensual. Her dark blue eyes reminded him of sapphires. She was ethereal and too petite for his six feet four frame.’ ‘Elin noticed a stranger at her birthday party and she knew immediately what to wish for when she blew out the candles on her cake. An arresting, tall broad shouldered, handsome man had come into her view! He was the most gorgeous man she’d ever set eyes on’ ‘His mannerism and style of standing with one foot casually crossed over his other ankle was attractive enough while his eyes were the colour of sable flecked with gold, halted in front of her. Elin, noticed he had chiselled cheekbones, square jaw and his wickedly sensual mouth that promised heaven’. The dramatic meeting of the couple begins with sarcasm, and banter as he says to her ’Happy Birthday Blondie’ to which she took umbrage, as she hated that nickname. ‘That’s not my name, it is Elin’.

Unmissable page turner, scintillating, tremendous love affair! Undoubtedly A5*!

One of the most dramatic opening chapters of a Modern genre romance which will capture the attention of the readers instantly.It describes the reality of Rollo who has the movie star look about him, handsome, exuding masculinity, power, and poise. He was blond, sharp clean-lined jaw with eyes that were glittering green and sporting a full-lipped curve which could soften into the sexiest smile. Daisy on the other hand had a slight tilt of her chin, when talking with Rollo so the wash of colour, on the flawless cheekbones was so evident. ‘A beautiful, brown-eyed beauty she was make-up free, from the soft curves of her mouth to the huge espresso –coloured eyes which was designed to seduce.’’ Eyes that somehow managed to look sleepy yet seductive at the same time’.’His charm for her was lethal particularly when the chill and distance left his voice he was at his most dangerous’. ‘He smiled a small dispassionate smile.’ ‘She hated the sneer, the way his eyebrow lifted’. There was a taut silence when he commented on her name ‘Daisy, old-fashioned. Sweet. Decent.' It’s a pity you don’t live up to it’.
‘He’d simply been watching, waiting... for her to realise the fact he knew all along that her brother had stolen his watch’.’His eyes glinted threateningly, ‘I don’t need a heart to recognise a thief’.’His green eyes gleamed triumphantly, with his smug assumption, he held out his phone and said softly, ‘So call the police. Go on call them’.’In that case you are a bully’, she felt almost giddy with anger and retorted ‘I’m not a thief’. He watched her calmly.’ So ...last chance. What’s it to be? Me? Or the police?’ He was so unspeakably arrogant and autocratic and she loathed him’.’I want you to be my wife’.’There was a moment of pure, absolute silence.’
The love between Daisy and the alpha macho, domineering, arrogant proud Rollo is totally engrossing! It shows how the love of an independent, equally proud woman who could also be a sexy minx can win over her lover with her actions and words. True love cannot be quenched by anything as it will flower and blossom!
The dialogue, repartee, sarcasm, wit and gestures the attractive locations, against which their story unfolds is so very riveting. Excellent Modern genre which needs to be read and re –read. Stupendous, brilliant craftsmanship of the skilled writer that Louise Fuller is!

Prince Kasim ‘was as attractive as they came! He was utterly spectacular. Dark liquid eyes that seemed almost black, flawless bone structure with straight nose and perfectly balanced jaw line. His mouth ---That bottom lip was positively erotic’. Angelique, on the other hand, twin sister of Trella, was a feisty beauty. She knew she was beautiful. He looked at her and found her appealing and held her entire being enthralled.’ ’His lips quirked.’ ’Her brunette tresses fell in loose waves around her shoulders. Too casual?’The small dimples at the top of each of her firm, round cheeks ‘were so attractive to him.’ ‘She was tall and slender, built like a model’.

‘Your insolence toward me is unprecedented. Take extreme care, Angelique’.He wanted to be with her. ’He pushed his hands into his pants pocket, rocking on his heels’.

They do solve their issues/problems eventually though  it is not a simple plot or story line,as there are far too many extraneous detail and  deviations with a large family  which  tends to distract the readers who want the plot to go on. Not only are there family members but also Security detail which can confuse some readers. There is plenty of banter; repartee and dialogue which makes readers smile to see the natural conclusion of the drawn out story.

Good read of an intense love affair, emotional and sensual 4A*!

Raul and Lydia are strongly attracted to each other but it takes a while for their attraction to build up. ‘Lydia is tall, slender with long blond hair falling down her shoulders, carried herself beautifully. She had pale and creamy complexion with eyes which were china blue’. While Raul’s beauty had been evident from the moment she set eyes on him. Both felt each other’s presence even if their eyes did not meet initially! ‘He had jet black hair which gleamed, his voice was deep, polished and poised and he had a confident air about him. He was a black eyed stranger and his smile was a true and very rare gift.’ ‘The real beauty was however in the eyes of Raul that stared so deeply into hers that she felt there was nowhere to hide’.’He was dark, he was dangerous and he was as sexy as hell’.
Her eyes met his and she frowned---‘Are you imagining what I think you are?
‘Yes Lydia I am.’ ‘This man irritated her.’ ’Oh, she couldn’t see him, but she knew his attention was on her’. For years revenge had been Raul’s motivator. Now it would seem that it had ---in the delicate shape of an English rose’.
The characters emerge by the end of the story, as well developed personas though there is a bit of lag in the events, in which they find themselves, to reveal their feelings.
There is wit, dialogue and repartee which is engaging and ofcourse the end always justifies the means! Hints of brutality and cruelty may upset some romantic readers at heart as it is fun to escape into a world of fantasy with minimal references to them. A good read though and congratulations to Carol Marinelli for reaching the 100 th Milestone in this genre!

Realistic and yet intensely gripping, emotional Modern genre Romance ! 5A* more so for a debut Modern Romance!

‘Leo was actually incredibly good-looking. Helena realised that he wasn’t just good-looking, he was amazing. He was tall, dark, wearing a striking charcoal suit that screamed power suit. It caused women to stare and men to step out of his way. The aura he projected was one of command and power now! How could Helena have forgotten the mind-numbing effect those midnight eyes could have on her all those years ago and also now in the present moment too. His long proud nose, strong jaws, those sculpted male lips ‘were so strong in her memory’.’You and I have nothing to discuss on the phone or in person’. ‘Get out of the elevator, Helena’. She planted her feet more firmly in the elevator and shook her auburn wet curls bounce and sway and said ‘No’. A beautiful and a captivating girl, so young like the sculptures on display at the Art gallery had mesmerised him then and even now!
He continued in his deep throated voice, ’What part of I never wish to see you again you did not understand?’ ‘He was definitely not thrilled to see her.’ Yes, she could sense ‘the anger vibrating beneath his cloak of civility’.

Fabulous, fantasy come true fairy tale! 5A* indeed!
This story has hints of dark, brooding heroes to entice the romantics around the globe! ‘Zara had a shy dimpled smile on her glowing face. Her loosely tied rich brown hair had been starting to tumble, curled softly at her temples round her sweetheart shaped face , dominated by those large sea-green shining eyes and full rosebud lips.’ Whereas Tomas ‘was taller than she remembered, leaner –looking,with jet-black unruly mess of hair with a hint of curl, looked harder , unhappier but his eyes were the same---still that beautiful dark brown. He was so striking and so unforgettable’. ‘Their problem seems insurmountable as he has lost his memory for a year or so in a road accident.
Tomas stared at the bedraggled woman.’I don’t want whatever it is you’re selling?’ ‘I’m not here to sell you anything’. ‘I’m here to help you’. For a beat he looked stunned before snapping back, ’I don’t need or want your help’, he said slowly, cynicism harsh in his eyes.’ ‘You just can’t stop insulting me can you?’She glared at him.’ ’She was like a sensual pixie specially sent to torment him with her curves, her mouth and the irrepressible sparkle in her eyes’.’But she’d been nothing in Tomas’s life---only a moment, a whimsy.’ And she was still half in love with him’.’She’d always been too aware of him, too attracted, too ready to say yes’. Tomas drew in a steadying breath. Zara ‘was an undaunted kitten.’ She recalled that Tomas of the past had been ‘arrogant, decisive with flashes of fun.’ He couldn’t bear to look into her radiant face---she was too pretty with those huge expressive eyes and that sweetly curving mouth’.’Because, sweetheart, you have no idea how much I want you’.
The storyline is simple with no extraneous detail. The sparring, wit and irony will not be lost on the readers as the engaging plot will keep one engrossed till the very end. It is a real page turner, unmissable and a must to grace any home, anywhere. Stupendous and brilliant!

A True Classical Modern Genre with 5 A* What a dramatic start with the title of this superlative Modern romance by a genius of a writer! ‘With this ring I thee blackmail’. Wow!
Rashad is, ‘six feet three inches tall, black –haired, perfect bone structure, possessed long-lashed dark eyes, he dominated most gatherings and his smouldering dark good looks inspired admiring comments from others. ’Where as Polly had ,’wide blue eyes, the colour of gentian violets, blonde hair, was blindingly beautiful. Her skin was equally fair, moulded over a heart –shaped face, sultry full pink mouth and was rather tiny in stature’. Yet they had instant chemistry sparking off between them !
‘It is my ring, not yours, ‘Polly flung back at him dizzily. Rashad told her without skipping a beat,’you are even being –a little childish’. He stared at her, fascinated by the personality hidden beneath that beautiful, fragile outer shell’. To which she retorted,’If you weren’t who you are I’d thump you for saying that’.
‘Polly shouting and threatening him with a ludicrous assault had a wonderfully refreshing effect on his mood. Had she any idea how many Dharian laws she had broken! She looked remarkably like an idealised image of an angel’.’You’re not my king’ said Polly with a slow sweet smile’. A wholly inappropriate laugh broke from his lips. ’We are breaking rules’, he said. The sharp, smart and quick reply came back, from Polly, ‘Sometimes it’s fun to break rules’. The icing is always for many of us, a child at the end, bringing the story to its natural conclusion!
This is truly a Fairy Tale within the framework of Modern Romantic genre. The love of the couple is so transparent, with no extraneous detail, plenty of witty dialogue that it keeps the attention of the reader till the very last page. Stupendous! Exquisite! Go for it in any format!

Ruthless.Undeniable.’
While Lilian in these intervening years ‘had become taller, slimmer, with masses of golden hair which was nothing short of mesmerizing.’ ‘Her plump tilted sweet mouth’ made him gaze on them, coupled with her ‘blue eyes’, he felt she had blossomed into one of the most ‘stunning woman he’d ever seen in his life’.

Fury and far darker, dangerous tone threaded through that quiet voice of his’.’I am talking of marriage, Liliana not an excavation’.

Luca Tebaldi’s, ‘stare lingered on her face’. ‘Why did he find her so attractive?’ She was challenging and spiky and unpredictable. Yet he found her utterly fascinating’. ‘What was behind that steady green eyes of hers?’’With her milky skin, red-gold hair and clear green eyes, she was certainly siren material and had an alluring innocence beneath her quirky shell’.
On the other hand ‘Luca was well over six feet tall. Luca possessed the type of dangerously compelling glamour of a man born to rule’. ‘He had the hard –muscled frame of a Roman gladiator, and was considered to be outrageously good –looking’.’He was tall, dark with thick wavy black hair and an unwavering stare’. ‘He was ’brutally masculine and had shedloads of presence’.
‘He still wasn’t sure what to make of Jen/Jennifer Sanderson, an asset/threat and was to him a largely unknown quantity’. As he examined Jen’s feet he marvelled at how tiny her feet were, and how soft’.’Her toenails were like tiny pink shells’.‘The power of her beauty shocked him’. Luca and Jennifer are worlds apart yet when they meet in one of the most unusual situation in the opening chapters of the story and it becomes explosive and exciting for both of them!
He murmured to her, ‘I don’t have a problem’, with his mouth close to her, ‘My only problem is you’.
The Romantic readers’ appetite by now would be whetted to hear more of this ‘verbal jousting’. It could also be in repartee and dialogue as they would be pulled into the enticing simple story-line of love in a fantasy world.

The plot is developed rapidly, with no extraneous detail so the interest of the readers does not flag. Superb happy ending for all concerned especially the fans of Susan Stephens .Her genius lies in the description of facial and voice nuances in the handsome hero she delineates and in Jen the loveable, feisty heroine that she is! The icing on the cake is obviously in the Epilogue. One has to read it to find the mystery! An incredible must buy book in any shape or form. Exquisite and brilliant!

Stunning read, sensual, riveting romance! 5A*indeed!

Emma Sanders eyes were a mossy green, reminding him of the depths of Russian forests in summer. Although her green eyes were a distraction he was unable to put aside his anger towards her. She was stunning. He himself was in danger of falling victim to her charms and distractions. Emma removed her scarf, revealing long, straight hair the colour of sable, a beautiful woman! Maybe playing to the attraction sizzling between them would be the way to create that distraction into mutual satisfaction. To Emma, Nikolai was undeniably handsome and oozed a lethal kind of sex appeal. He was a powerful specimen of masculinity, tall, dark-haired man who had been cold towards her initially. She looked up at him, into those midnight-black eyes and she knew she couldn’t fight fire with fire. ’Maybe we should eat’, she asked in a soft, husky voice. Food was the last thing Nikolai wanted. She was so alluring, so tempting. He replied, ‘It is not food I hunger for’. ‘Let’s go upstairs’. Nikolai was very clear when he said to Emma, ’I want nothing more than this moment in time’.
Rachael Thomas has excelled in this story of the love affair between Emma and Nikolai. Their repartee, the devotion and possessiveness of Nikolai for Emma is so endearing. It was prudent of the writer to stress the emotional scars which both of them had been subjected to from their childhood. This story is worth a second read, unmissable in any format and realise that dreams can come true! Brilliant!

Terrific, sensual, Modern genre romance! 5*no doubt!

‘Arden Wills had the colour of a sunburst of curling locks, as soft as down. Her lush lips,her neat nose,her slender,delicate throat all of which he knew and recalled instantly. A voice Idris knew all too well, from a distant past.'‘While to Arden , her brain told her it was him. The man who changed her life.’ ’Arden,’ the voice was low and soft as smoke, encircling her like an embrace’. Huge eyes fixed on Idris Baddour, the Sheikh of Zahrat. He had crisp dark hair, chiselled features and broad shoulders and reminded her of Shakil. ‘She drank in his spare, handsome features and just looking at him it left her breathless.’ ‘Idris saw, one dark, one golden, both were beautiful women, one his rejected bride and the other his affianced bride’. ‘Arden might be trouble on two beautiful, sexy legs but it was Arden he wanted in his bed’. ‘In traditional dress the Sheikh was the most attractive man she’d ever seen and was the stuff of pure fantasy’.’ It was fantasy to imagine she read something intimate in those black velvet eyes’.
Arden Wills and Idris Baddour are worlds apart yet when they meet in one of the most unusual situation after four years, in the opening paragraphs of the story it becomes explosive both for them and the readers! From there on their dialogue and their subsequent meetings get so exciting! The plot is developed rapidly, with no extraneous detail so the interest of the reader does not flag. Superb happy ending for all concerned especially the fans of Annie West.

‘And you are?’ enquired the formidable tycoon, Angelos Mena. Natalia stammered, a flush washing over her face, making her hazel eyes seem luminous in her freckled, heart-shaped face. She tucked her unruly hair behind her ears, golden brown strands behind her small, perfectly formed ears’. To her something disturbing began to unsettle her, 'a power like a magnetic force, making her realise how dangerous this man could be’. ‘She considered him a stunning, sexy and potentially virile man. Crisp dark hair cut very short framed a chiselled face with straight slashes of eyebrows and deep brown eyes that had been glowering at her at this unfortunate interview’. ‘The man had no sense of humour, friendliness or sensitivity.' ‘He was a machine. A robot. A drone.....’ ’Even scowling the man was devastatingly attractive’. He spoke to her with annoyance, ‘Talia you are extraordinarily short-sighted and flighty’. ‘She was an impossible, aggravating mystery whom he found was an utter contradiction and reluctantly admiring her spirit’. Cruelly he said to her, ‘You are not part of our lives. In a month you will be gone from here, as good as forgotten’. She observed him and ‘found smiling he was impossible to resist’.
Kate Hewitt is a contemporary Classic romance writer whose stories are always engrossing, filled with brilliant repartee, extremely sensual and deals sensitively with emotional issues rather than with physical impairments! This story of Modern genre fulfils all that and more! Natalia and Angelos find a perfect match in each other and the reader is kept on tenterhooks till the last sentence. Marvellous indeed! 5 A*for this story without a doubt. A must buy book in any format, in this series of Billionaire’s Legacy.

Passionate Romantic story indeed! 5A* undoubtedly!
Apollo the billionaire, gets attracted to a poor hairdresser with a dubious background, though he refuses to acknowledge this! Pixie has beautiful eyes, of a luminous clear- grey colour that shone like polished silver. She was tiny-doll like in figure with blonde hair. While Apollo had startlingly, bright green eyes, seemed impossibly tall, as he towered over her, with his lean, bronzed face and an elaborate tattoo peeping out of a white shirt cuff, with a personality to match! He appeared to be volatile, unconventional and arrogant. He was like his namesake, the sun god and was breathtakingly handsome. He said to her softly,’ I’m your 12 o’clock appointment’. Pixie was gobsmacked because they hated each other as they had a past history! ‘I believe that for the right price you could be the woman I marry and divorce,’ he spelt out smoothly. ‘She thought was he certifiably insane? or simply madly eccentric?’
Lynne Graham spins superb Modern genre of romanticism! All the ingredients of a love story will be found in this story. The characters are so realistic that you might want to meet them and help them along! The repartee/conversation is scintillating and witty. It is only right that that both the hero and the heroine realise the meaning of true love. Highly recommended as it deserves more than one read!

‘He was too handsome, too rich, too intelligent, and too sexy. Too everything. He was always on the fringe, quietly measuring the scene with his navy-blue gaze. He was built like an endurance athlete, tall and lean, his skin was tanned and had cleanly shaven skin.’ ’There was something about his intelligent eyes that always made her feel he saw more than he let on’. They had known each other from way back when and now that Cam has met her once again his gaze met Violet’s and he whispered aloud, ’You look stunning’.’His dark blue eyes held hers in a lock that made the base of her spine tingle like sherbet’.’He had changed’. ‘He had suddenly noticed her, her beautiful brown eyes, her creamy skin, her dusting of freckles that he found adorable’.’He had gone from noticing her to wanting her....as in wanting and desiring her.’
What was preventing Cam from wanting Violet and not being able to love her is something for the romantic readers to find out! There are plenty of succinct statements, sparring and wit to keep the chuckles going on in the reader’s mind. However there are too many threads that weave in and out in the writer’s plot. It has always been her style and somehow some readers get disengaged by that kind of writing style. It is quite a common strategy used by romantic writers Down Under! The story line ends happily and all’s well that ends well. Readers who love a big family and plots within plots will like this book very much!

‘But he was looking now. Her dark honey –toned skin was vibrant and silky –smooth, her high cheekbones, velvety pouting lips, a determined chin, made his breath snag somewhere in his chest’.’There was something uniquely enthralling about Goldie Beckett’s face that riveted his attention’.’Perhaps it was her eyes. Gael wasn’t sure whether they were blue, or violet, even though they currently glared at him, were absorbing enough to keep him staring’.’As for her body....she couldn’t be more than five foot five didn’t detract from her attention’.’Her laughter mocked again, deeper this time,’I’m from New Jersey, not Narnia.I don’t step through cupboards or into limos, out of naive curiosity’. A man with the face of a fallen angel, a man with a voice so hypnotic, a playboy with enigmatic eyes exuded warning bells loud enough for her to take heed’. This was their dramatic meeting the first time they confronted each other. ’Santa  cielo, you’re exquisite’.

‘They are two people who care for each other but can’t be together because of perceived insurmountable obstacles.’ From this kind of first meeting between Gael Aguilar and Goldie Beckett the plot becomes thicker and gripping, to arouse the romantic reader’s curiosity about how it will end happily!

Maya Blake as usual has crafted an entrancing story line with plenty of sarcasm, wit and humour which is one of the strategies used to make the book a page turner. It is unmissable and a beautiful story with plenty of peep into the lifestyle of billionaire tycoons which makes the reader feel good after the last line is read! Go for it ! Charming indeed!

It is an exquisite story of how an Alpha man/hero Alejandro a billionaire, can really love a woman Elise Jameson, ‘a marketing guru’! It shows all the shades of love that can be there between a man and a woman with tremendous parental issues in each of their lives! ‘His gaze to her Venus –like body and shapely legs’ had an instant impact on him. ‘Attractive. Alluring.’ He noted that, her features bore a hint of an Asian heritage, making her beauty even more enthralling’.’Shadows and questions swirled through her hazel-gold eyes’.’He gritted his teeth’. Tersely he warned her, ‘I never play tricks. I abhor subterfuge of any kind. Remember that before we go any further’. Elise found Alejandro was insanely absorbing. From the square-cut jaw to the cheekbones, to the broad shoulders, his looks and aura were overwhelming’. ‘His deep voice transmitted right through to the soles of her feet’. ‘He didn’t need to waste time on an attraction his principles wouldn’t allow him to act upon’. ‘Elise smiled. Her smile transformed her face from visually stunning to exquisitely entrancing’. To her, Alejandro was unforgivably captivating.’ Her mouth twitched, then she smiled when he asked her, I trust you had a good weekend?’It caused his breath to snag! ‘She had the potential to get under her skin.’ Yet she was captivatingly breath taking’.
The story line is simple, with no extraneous detail and so it has a rapid pace. The macho hero does deserve a woman who can show a little more flexibility in certain situations and she does. The beauty of the romance is in the quicksilver of repartee and conversation. It is far better to have emotional scars than physical ones. Excellent, genius of a writer!

Nathaniel had often attended the same functions she’d been at; a tall magnetic figure her eyes had always been drawn to’. ‘His marriage to Catalina would be like a business relationship. He would not allow it to be anything more’.

Still. He exuded that intense, brooding masculinity, golden skin, the sheer strength of his forearms. His eyes would still be blue enough to rival the Hawaiian sky.

‘’His hawkish, striking face, set off by his short-cropped black hair, was just arresting.’ ’Tall and muscular, the sheer brawn of him was riveting.’ ’He had stripped her of her innocent defences, and then walked away, making mockery of her teenage idolization.’ To King Kostas Laskos , Stella, Princess of the neighbouring country appeared to him ‘As not classically beautiful, but unforgettable when paired with her ice-blue eyes and blond hair’.’She was silhouetted against the dying rays of the sun, her hair, the colour of rich honey, hanging loose down her back looked every inch the cool , sophisticated girl she was reputed to be.’ She asked him, ‘Planning your next move?’ His prompt reply was, ’Admiring you. You still have the power to stop me in my tracks’. Kostas was ‘the only man who could stand alone in the middle of a crowd’. Whereas for Kostas she ‘intrigued’ him.’ ‘When Stella was in a room, everything else paled in comparison’.’You look astonishingly beautiful’, Kostas said to her before they made their entrance into the ballroom. ’You’re the poster child of no-strings-attached, meaningless relationships’. Contrary to her statement, he retorts, ‘I am the man who has always respected you enough to treat you the way you deserve’. He does not let her have her last word. He says to her, ‘Be careful what you wish for’.
The storyline is very engaging though its outline is very politically based. The repartee, the wit and the loving actions of both of them is vividly portrayed. It is a trilogy worth keeping at home so that the romantics can read all three of the stories at one go!

‘She’d done her best to hide her growing feelings’, for the Prince ‘until she realised she was fighting a losing battle.’ ‘His black hair was shorter than she remembered, but his eyes were just as blue. ‘ ‘The brilliant sapphire blue ‘. ‘Eyes you just wanted to dive straight into.’ ’While the Prince ‘s heart clenched in his chest as he looked at her-at her golden-brown curls tumbling down over her milky skin. He stared into the spiky lashed green-gold of her eyes.’ ‘He wondered if she was aware of just how irresistible he still found her.’
The humongous emotional issues they faced made Lisa Bailey remark, ’Mr. Right is a fictional character created by women who still believe in fairy tales. And I don’t’.’He didn’t care about her –he never had’. When he beheld her he stared at his bride thinking ‘how beautiful she looked. More beautiful than he could ever have imagined’.’She treated him like a man and not a prince’.’Because somehow he’d come to realise that this spunky designer with the clear green-gold gaze treated him as nobody else had ever done.’
It is an enticing story about a Prince and a commoner and sometimes truth is stranger than fiction! The writer has used English language very effectively to express wry humour and wit to good effect. It does end happily for the readers and I would recommend to give this story a read in a paperback format or in the Kindle.

She ,‘also felt flattered and frustrated by his determined pursuit of her’.
Whereas Jeremy was, ‘Handsome as the devil, with more charm than any man has a right to’.’His nose was strong and straight and his eyes a sparkling blue’. ‘It was difficult not to respond to his practised charm’.’He walked the same way he did everything, she noted ruefully. With style and elegance’.’He was drop-dead gorgeous’.’Clearly, Jeremy was a Casanova extraordinaire’.’He was arrogant, yes, but with a wonderfully easy-going manner, which was both disarming and seriously seductive’.
‘The girl was a delight to behold. Fresh faced and very pretty, a cute nose and fashionably full lips’. Jeremy,’ was not just handsome and rich and charming, but super intelligent too’. ‘He’d decided to use reverse psychology to spark her interest’. He said to her, ’Don’t try to change, lovely Alice .You’re perfect as you are’. Yet ‘Never had he known a girl run so hot and cold all the time!’She was either the ‘Ice Princess’, or the ‘hot babe’.
She was a mystery all right. Irritating and intriguing yet downright irresistible’. ‘In two short weeks Alice had managed to totally turn him inside out’.
The plot is engaging and fast paced, with plenty of sparring, witticism and wry humour which is riveting and enticing to know what happens next. A fitting end to this trilogy and must adorn the home of Modern genre fans all over the globe in a paperback or kindle format. Superb and a brilliant read!

Vittorio Donatelli ‘was arguably, even more stunningly good looking and handsome as his Italian heritage demanded.’ ‘He wore an air of arrogance that came as much from his lean height as his aloof expression.’ While Gwyn was a very potent woman, her slight stature had smooth curves which evoked an instant chemistry in him. ‘She was built like Venus’.’She was truly beautiful’.’You’re stunning’, he told her sincerely. ‘It struck him that she didn’t know he was attracted to her’.’He wanted italics her. ‘You are so cute, Gwyn. I am indulging my inamorata’.’How could any woman not italics find this level of provision seductive?’ ‘He adored seeing her personality shine through like this’.

Dani Collins has used dialogue so intensely and effectively that the dialogue itself with the wry wit will attract readers. However there are too many family skeins which detract the reader’s attention from the main plot. Again it reflects how some writers do not focus on the hero and heroine only, with minor side interventions of family. It may attract some romantic readers in some parts of the world.

Apollo says to her that she had ‘rocked’, his world, ‘you have ruined me for all other women’, even after all these years. To make an impossible situation even worse than it was between them he says, ’I don’t have a heart’. ‘Yet he was the one who had captivated her from the first moment she had laid eyes on him’.

Emotional, heart wrenching, passionate modern genre romance. 4*
Caitlin Crews has spun a love story with very strong emotional appeal. The exiled rightful ‘King’s voice was like melted dark chocolate.Rich.Deep.Faintly intriguingly accented’. From the very first moment he saw her he remarked sternly ‘You are very pretty’.’She felt betrayed. By herself, not by the devastatingly handsome man whose entire life was a monument to wreck and ruin’.Cairo always looked devastatingly gorgeous. He turned heads.’ ‘He inspired sighs’.’Marry me’,he said, and his voice was different, too.’ ‘Deeper. Richer.’’My wife’.’She was his in every possible way. ‘He thought the way she scowled at him was beautiful.’She replied back fiercely ‘You’re pure magic’.
The story is very quick paced over locations and time. The characters develop as the story progresses. The dialogue and repartee is riveting. However the heroine being married thrice and the career she had to pursue together with Cairo’s extremely traumatic history does become stressful for the romantic reader who would love to escape into a fantasy world that does not reflect so much of reality! Otherwise it is a good read!

Her ‘ethereal beauty, her silky caramel-streaked chocolate hair, vivid green eyes had caught his attention from the first moment he had laid eyes on her’.

Scintillating, sensuous Modern genre romance ! 4*
This story of Kat the love child of Richard Ravensdale has plenty of ingredients to keep the fans of Melanie Milburne engaged with the developments of the story line. ‘In the fiery flash of her green-grey gaze he could see something else.’ While Flynn’s molasses-black gaze, his slow, deliberate smile, together with amusement laced with mockery attracted Kat Winwood to Flynn Carlyon . Add to that, ‘the shallow cleft in his chin with a gorgeous mouth’, to boast! Yet he came across to her,’ as an arrogant jerk’. However Flynn felt, ‘She was simply unforgettable’.
It is interesting to read the sparring, banter that takes place between them always no matter what the main issue is or the elephant in the room!’The chemistry between them was phenomenal.’
Their Mutual attraction was, ’Unmistakable.Powerful.Tempting’. For me the strong, alpha macho hero to die for, to be on crutches practically throughout the story, was not very appealing! However if one can overlook that moot point this is a good story to read!
