Enthralling, lovely, sensual Modern genre Romance! 5A* undoubtedly!
‘Poppy would recognise Sebastiano anywhere ofcourse. Powerful.Untamed. Stunningly good-looking. He raked a hand through his hair, mussing it into untidy black waves. He was tall, muscular with piercing, brilliant green eyes and was an eye-candy extraordinaire.’ ’Sebastiano was the most superb specimen of a man she had ever come across. The air of power that he carried on him was like an invisible warning for others who dared to take him on’ ’His lips were firm and chiselled without seeming hard’. As he sensed her presence and silent perusal he asked, ‘Who the hell are you?’ ‘His frown deepened as he looked her up and down again’.’I’m an intern. Poppy Connolly. I work for you’. She made his coffee and then inadvertently spilled it on him. That resulted in him changing his shirt and tie and so she offered to help him tie the knot.’ ‘He was tall, well over six feet and she had to rise onto her toes to position the knot of the necktie in the centre of his throat’.’If you do happen to get a job here, don’t ever hand me a call without first finding out who it is’. ‘Poppy pursed her lips, ’not even if the person is crying?’ ‘Especially if the person is crying’.’ His gaze flitted over her face, his green eyes hot and hungry.’. ‘He was gobsmacked from the first moment he’d seen her standing in his doorway. He’d been thrown by those velvet-blue eyes staring at him with no artifice in them at all’. ‘Poppy’s figure was glorious: slim hips, a thick pile of ash-brown hair, pulled into a high ponytail, revealing a slender neck with sweet rosebud lips’.’There was something about her that was at once innocent and impish. And hot.’ ’You said something to my grandfather that suggested we are a couple’.’So what is your price to accompany me to visit them for celebrating their sixtieth wedding anniversary?’ ‘Five hundred thousand pounds? She felt a little drunk at the thought of all that money. She stood up. ‘I...I can’t take your money’.’I’m not a prostitute’.’Are you seriously turning me down because it doesn’t feel right?’’I’m not for sale Mr Castiglione’, she retorted.
Michelle Conder has an inimitable style of writing which casts a spell on those who are romantic at heart! Her billionaire tycoons are to –die-for with their life style, gestures, economy of movements, their domineering presence which often betrays love and deep seated attraction which charms the heroines and in this story it is Sebastiano and Poppy ! They exercise power between them at different times and in different ways, display passion to each other and temptation is apparent whenever they are in each other’s presence! The verbal sparring, dialogue, conversation is scintillating and will bring about plenty of chuckles whilst reading! A brilliant story worthy to be kept in any format either as a paperback or in a kindle. Excellent!

Fantastic, sheer delight, compelling page turner! 5* indeed!

‘Katy looked less like a computer whizz-kid and more like a hippy. However she had the sort of multi-coloured coppery hair, an elfin face with enormous , beguiling mix of bright-green and turquoise eyes, her creamy complexion was free of freckles, had absurdly prettiness, that was more dramatic because she seemed so unaware of it that held Lucas’s gaze for reasons he couldn’t begin to fathom.’ ‘She was only five –three so she had to crane her neck up to look at him’. To Katy ,’Lucas was, simply put, beautiful’. ’She found herself thinking , he’s almost too beautiful to bear looking at.’  ‘He had perfect features, burnished bronzed skin, dramatic masculinity of physique, and exuded a certain power and charisma that scrambled one’s ability to think straight’.’He possessed a dark, brooding, in-your-face sensuality that she hadn’t expected.’ ‘He had stunning dark eyes, fringed with inky black, luxuriant lashes that pierced through the thin veneer of Katy’s self confidence’.’You gave me a job to do and I was doing it to the best of my ability’.’I’m sorry...people’s sincerely meant promises, is something I don’t do’. He thought,’a chit of a girl who was destined for the scrapheap, for some reason was diluting his focus by her arresting good looks’.’However much you look at me with those big, green eyes the word of an adulterer is something of a tall order’. ‘You are an arrogant, domineering bully!’’For a terrifying moment her anger was eclipsed that made her breathing sluggish and laborious’. Lucas was observing her. ’She was at the same time lippy, argumentative, stubborn and as unpredictable as a keg of dynamite’.’Yet she was dangerously pretty, rebellious and lacking in a moral compass was a recipe for disaster’. Katy kept looking at him and there was,’That smile’.’A long, slow, lazy smile seemed to insinuate into parts of her that she hadn’t known existed’.’Which bit exactly, are you not understanding?’’You can’t just kidnap me for weeks on end?’’That’s a crime!’ ‘However she knew the alternative was litigation, legal bills and no job’.’You’re going to be with me,’ ’With you?’’Not without being mauled to death in the process.’ 'Lucas raised his eyebrows and there was that smile again’.’She hated him’.’You’re not a man’.’If I am not a man, then what am I?’’You’re ...you’re my captor’. ‘Lucas laughed, a rich, throaty laugh that set her senses alight and her pulses racing’.

Cathy Williams is a genius of a writer with an unusual flair for writing Modern genre romances with plenty of verbal sparring, fencing, sarcasm, innuendoes, which encapsulates the story line so engagingly! Her stories are always streamlined with minimum of characters and so the interest of the readers never flag rather it is sustained throughout the story. The characters reveal their love for each other so openly as it were, because they reveal it using economy of actions and words! The hero is one to -die -for and the heroine is extremely endearing, winsome and yet emotionally strong! A stupendous and a brilliant story as always from Cathy Williams!

‘Gracie/Grace mesmerised Malik al Bahjat, heir to the throne of Alazar. She vibrated with life, with the enjoyment of life, every curve of her lithe body, vibrant and sinuous. She was so alive.’ ‘Her golden gaze clashing and then tangling with his. She didn’t blink either, as Malik walked towards her.’ ’A smile bloomed across her face that warmed him like a golden ray of sunshine.’ She let out a a soft gurgle of laughter, eyes alight with humour and mischief. ‘Are you going to tell me your name at least?’ ‘And yours?’’He was enchanted. She threw her head back so her hair, in all of its curls and waves, cascaded down her back in a golden –brown waterfall.’ Malik’s eyes were the colour of granite and was the most physically arresting man she’d ever seen. He was tall, commanding with broad shoulders, muscled torso, he looked magnificent. Regal. Powerful,assured,experienced.
‘He possessed an innate authority, almost an arrogance that both attracted and fascinated her.’ ‘His silvery-grey gaze fastened on her.’ Malik laughed softly,’I do not even know you.’ ’He kept staring at her and said,’ Yet, we have this chemistry. Yes, a connection’. ‘He cared what she thought. What she felt’.’I’m sorry, this was a memorable evening. But that’s all’.
After a decade when she meets him on her own turf she sees the change in him. ‘He was utterly forbidding, unsmiling and severe.’ ’His voice was however the same, ‘a gravelly husk’ and it reached right inside Gracie and squeezed her heart.’ ‘His face was as inscrutable and unyielding as a statue’s, beautiful and so very cold’.’What do you Malik want from me?’ ‘My son’.
