"The last book in "The secret billionaire's" trilogy by Jennifer Hayward is the conclusion to a wonderful series. I love romance stories and I love writing reviews to help other readers find a book they will enjoy.    I have written something about the amazing story but I have to say first if you don't read this book you are missing one of the finest romance stories, its Platinum.   Alejandro Salazar goes undercover as part of the competition as a stable hand at the Hargrove Estates in Kentucky as Colt Banyon. There is a past between the Hargrove's and the Salazar's and its not a good one.  Realizing why he was sent here and the desire to find out the truth about a horse is just the crust of this story.  From their first encounter where he thinks "she had a mouth on her that would strip the paint off a car" to the sexual chemistry between them Ms. Hayward has written an incredibly fantastic book.  It has more than any romance reader could ever want and then some,  I cannot even write a review to give justice to one of the finest books I have read.  There was not one moment in the book that didn't keep you enthralled and that the story didn't wrap around your heart.  Not enough words express how fantastic it is."

"Pursued by the Desert Prince is the first of a series called "The Sauveterre Siblings" and what an amazing first book.  First you have 2 sets of Identical twins , a family dynasty that has been destroyed by a kidnapping and are forced to go to extreme measures to protect them.  I know I cannot do justice to the review as the book is that amazing but I will try.  the first book has Angelique who with her twin Trella design wedding gowns.   Add to the mix Kasim ibn Nour who doesn't believe the story of why they are gifting the gowns to his sister, instead thinks she is the mistress of his sisters fiancée.  He confronts Angelique and this is just the beginning of a story that has everything in it a romance reader would love and throw in 1000 more reasons to love it. Amazing is not giving it the credit it deserves and I am anxiously awaiting the other 3.  Ms. Collins has written one of the finest romances I have read and truly worth more than 5 stars and instead of gold its Platinum.  don't miss this one."

"Ms. Hayward starts her lovely story with a beautiful dedication to her Dad, who sadly passed as she was writing this book.  All her books have such heart and soul in them and this is another example of her amazing talent. Angelina and Lorenzo fell in love and got married, Nope not HEA yet.  Angelina walks out of the marriage and after so much heartache finds someone new and plans to remarry.  End of story? Not.  If you have never read a Ms. Hayward story you will never miss another she is one of the finest authors there are and her books are always amazing. I will be as brief as I can and try not ruin the story. Lorenzo finds out their divorce was never filed, also his brother cannot provide and heir for their fathers dynasty business,so Angelina is the answer.  Sound great except Angelina is marrying someone new.  Not happening when Lorenzo explains how the divorce wasn't filed, her place of business is his building unknown to her and he has loaned her father money to keep his business from going under.   Add her mother has psychological problems.   So Lorenzo's answer? To keep things as they are she must  stay married and produce his heir.  Wow what does Angelina do now?  She always has loved Lorenzo but this?  That's all I will say because this is a book that is so emotional and passionate that to give anything else away will ruin the enjoyment you will get from this incredible book.  It deserves  gold instead of 5 stars due to the emotions between all the characters, the story that wraps you in and to add the icing to the cake the wonderful epilogue.  I cannot truly give this review the justice it deserves all I can say is don't miss it. Awesome"

"Arden Wills has a secret child she gave birth to but was unable to find his father.  So for years the only help she had was from Hamid who is more than willing to be there for her and hope maybe something more one day.  A wrinkle in the plan is when he takes Arden to a party and introduces her to his cousin Idris, and Arden finds the father of her son and realizes she couldn't find him because she knew him as Shakil not Sheikh Idris.  Ms. West always delivers such a wonderful story that you will want to find a comfortable chair and just sit and immerse yourself in this story of love.  Enjoy the journey Idris and Arden take on the rocky road to love.  A truly lovely story as you can always expect from Annie West."

"Ms. Hayward has again written a fantastic story that is book 7 of The Billionaire's Legacy series and I have to say she is making a legacy for herself with her writing.  Nate Brunswick is asked by his grandfather to find a ring that is part of what he calls his Lost Mistresses.  He will do anything for his grandfather as he raised him when his father put him out with his mother.  Nate is so turned off of marriage after seeing how his father treated his mother that here is no way he will ever put himself in a position of marrying for whatever reason, he will take women when he needs them and enjoy his bountiful life.  He has a career and reputation that has opened any door for him for negotiation and life is just the way he wants it.  Sounds like he has it all figured out however he didn't figure on Mina Mastrantino crossing his path.  Mina is marrying someone she doesn't want to because her mother needs her to marry a wealthy man and secure their future.  When she marries she will be able to sell an heirloom ring worth enough to keep her mother in the style she is used to.  However after an eye opening situation between Mina and her fiance' she knows she cannot go through with it.  Enter Nate who after finding who has the ring his grandfather wants shows up at Mina's apartment asking to buy the ring.  He finds her in her wedding gown and a mark on her cheek .  After realizing why she is marrying he helps her run away and marries her in name only to protect her.  Sounds like that's pretty much the story?  Not when Ms. Hayward writes it. You have to read this book as it is so much more than what I have said, she has such a way with words and you will become so involved in the life of two people who have been hurt so in the past by parents that you wonder how they will finally find the love they both deserve.   An amazing story worth more than 5 stars.  Warning: you will fall in love with Nate."

"A truly enjoyable read from page one about a dark brooding CEO by the name of Jethro Calder and Lexi Malone.  Lexi best friend is killed in an accident and Lexi wants to take care of her daughter.  Social services feels differently about a single women so she goes in search of Jasmine's dad and finds Jethro and from here on you will find yourself wishing for no distractions till you finish the story.  Its that good, Ms. Carpenter has done a fantastic job of putting every element possible in this story, a guy with no family except from foster home, a women who knows what she wants and is determined to have it.  Fantastic is all I can say and love makes anything possible even for someone who doesn't believe it exists. "

"have to start my review by saying I have never read an Annie West book that I didn't fall in love with both the book and the hero. I immediately fell in love with Raffaele but I absolutely adore Lily. Ms. West continues to bring the best of the best in romance books and I honestly don't know how she can get any better than the awesome writer she is but she constantly goes up the next level with each story. Raffaele Petri is out for revenge, Lily Nolan is only interested in solitude. Mix the two together and you have an amazing story. Lily is excellent at her job but likes to stay in the background as she is scarred and hates the pity looks she gets. Raffaele is only interested in hurting someone who is responsible for the death of his sister when he was a child. He needs Lilly to exact his revenge so he forces her out of her comfort zone and that is the only thing I will tell you about the story as you must read this book to truly appreciate both Raffaele and Lily and to also be amazed by the talent of Annie West. Get a comfortable spot, grab the book and truly enjoy an incredible story from start to finish. A keeper."

"Jennifer Hayward has added book 2 of 3 with " Claiming the Royal Innocent " and its amazing. Finding out that you have been lied to all your life and you are a princess and part of a Royal family is so difficult for Aleksandra Dimitriou to comprehend. So to see what her father and family look like she sneaks into a party given by the King and doesn't realize that the man staring at her from across the room is aware she is not who she says. That starts this incredible story with Aristos Nicolades , security and friend to the King confronting the intruder. Ms. Hayward has consistently written fantastic books and this is another example of her incredible writing. Its HOT, when Aristos has Aleksandra are sent to his island by the King to protect her as things are happening on her homeland . Things heat up on the island and even with Aristos warning to Aleksandra that sex with him will blow off the bedroom door, it isn't long before Aristos and Alex are found canoodling in the words of the press. Her brother the King calls Aristos and says "you have 60 seconds to explain why I shouldn't fly there right now and kill you". You will find that in all of Jennifer Haywards book she will put in some amazing lines that will stay with you for days and make you smile. Jennifer Hayward is such an amazing author that I find it so hard to write a review because I feel I have actually lived in her book and enjoyed it so much I cannot even find words other than AWESOME to describe the story. If you haven't read any of her books you are missing out on an incredibly talented author so read this book and go back and get all of her books as yours will go on the keeper shelf just as all hers are on mine. I feel that my future reviews for her books should just say " guaranteed fantastic book by Jennifer Hayward" enough said."
