Offered by her father…

English rose Flavia Lassiter has never been comfortable in her father’s glitzy world. Summoned to yet another of his ostentatiously lavish parties, she has one order: to be ‘nice’ to a wealthy investor. Her body may be on offer, but she shields her heart behind an icy shell.

Taken by the billionaire!

Leon Maranz emanates a dark power that sends shivers through her body – threatening to shatter her frosty façade. To let the self-made billionaire bed her would be to do her unscrupulous father’s bidding. But to turn Leon down would be to deny her body’s deepest desires…

Riveting.

I really enjoyed this. A good old-fashioned M&B with modern overtones. The autocratic and macho Leon was hard to like at first but mellowed and redeemed himself. Poor Flavia was was pulled in one direction by her love for her grandmother and in another by her manipulative father and this encompassed her character and evoked much sympathy for her and understanding of her stand-offish trait. The plot bowled along at a nice pace and both suffered at times. The moral must be -"never put off until tomorrow what you can do today"! One thing I wasn't happy with though was how Flavia's father fared at the end - he deserved nothing. A page turner that reminded me of just why I have always loved M&B. Ten out of ten.

Fabulous...

A fabulous story with strong characters that both excited and frustrated at the same time. It felt like a proper Modern Mills and Boon. Can we have more like this please. This a book you can read and re-read. Definitely recommended.
