Seducing Phoebe

.

Review: I loved this book! 🙂 There was angst and the return of an ex-boyfriend on the eve of the heroine’s wedding to a man whose ‘been there’ for her all along.

Phoebe and Marco each have their own secrets and insecurities which affect their ability to truly open up to one another and most importantly, to open up to love.

Review: “The Prince’s Royal Concubine” by Lynn Raye Harris

Feb 25

TPRC cover 2Title: The Prince’s Royal Concubine

Series: A Royal Duo, bk 2

Author: Lynn Raye Harris 

Rating: 5 stars

Publisher: Harlequin Presents/Mills & Boon Modern

Publication date: June 2010

Synopsis: Two glittering royal houses…

Prince Cristiano di Savaré hunts his prey by ruthless means. Tonight’s pickings–Antonella Romanelli, crown princess of a rival country and part of a dynasty he has every reason to despise….

One majestic seduction

Antonella is rocked by Cristiano’s unexpected magnetism. But there’s ice in his wolfish smile…. She’s far from the promiscuous, spoiled socialite he believes her to be, but Cristiano is here to persuade her into compliance. If bedding her is what it takes, then it will make his mission all the more pleasurable….

 

STAR-5

Review: The synopsis of this book does not do the actual story justice. Lynn Raye Harris tackles the effects of emotional and physical abuse, as well as survivor’s guilt, in a story which takes place largely during a hurricane.

Cristiano and Antonella are royalty, and they project the image many of us associate with that – expensive clothes, jewels, private jets, Caribbean getaways, but beneath it all are two people on a parallel mission to bring peace and prosperity to their neighbouring yet warring countries.

Lynn Raye Harris has become an auto-buy for me and this book, published almost 3 years ago, did not disappoint. 😀

I highly recommend you get your own copy of this book so you can discover for yourself how Cristiano and Antonella find their own HEA.

Review: “Marriage Behind The Facade” by Lynn Raye Harris

Jan 2

MBTF pic 2Title: Marriage Behind The Facade

Series: Bound By His Ring

Author: Lynn Raye Harris

Rating: 5 stars

Publisher: Harlequin Presents

Publication date: January 2, 2013

Review: Lynn Raye Harris has done it again! A passionate tale of two tortured souls who find each other but struggle to express themselves emotionally.

Marriage Behind The Facade” opens with Sydney Al Dhakir signing divorce papers to end her marriage to Sheikh Malik ibn Al Dhakir.

Malik learns of her decision to contact a lawyer and shows up unexpectedly in California that same day. Sparks fly but Sydney is determined to remain strong and end her one-sided marriage – she loves Malik but he is an emotionally-distant man and has been overheard saying his marriage to her was a mistake.

STAR-5I love how Sydney gets her soon-to-be ex to fork out a ton of money for a Malibu property. 🙂

But as with many alpha heroes, Malik refuses to lose his wife ‘just so’ and evokes an ancient law from his homeland of Jahfar – they must spend 40 days together as a couple before a divorce can be granted.

But it’s not until Sydney and Malik enter the Al Na’ir desert that they give in to their sizzling attraction to one another. Boy oh boy do they steam up that shower! ;D

MBTF coverAlas, hot sex isn’t enough to overcome the emotional distance on Malik’s part and the reluctance on Sydney’s part to lay all her cards on the table…That is until they end up trapped in the Land Rover during a sand storm.

I love how Lynn Raye Harris brings this couple together. You’re rooting for them the whole way but nothing happens as expected. Hence my 5 star review. Looking forward to more sexy sheikhs from Lynn! 😀

Synopsis: Sydney Reed dreamed of being a princess in a faraway land, and couldn’t believe that smolderingly sexy Sheikh Malik of Jahfar would marry plain old her—even out of convenience. But the dream has ended and she’s back to reality with a thud!

Now Sydney needs his signature on the divorce papers—Malik, however, has other ideas. Jahfaran law requires that they spend forty days together as man and wife before Sydney can be free of him forever. Out in the scorching desert, Malik holds all the power—he’ll make sure their forty nights are more than worth it…
