‘Grigor handed her icy fingers to Trina’s groom, the very daunting Mikolas Petrides.’ ’Lord he was handsome’, carved cheekbones, small cleft in the chin, and ‘his eyes were a smoky gray.’ ’Viveka was taken aback by the quiet force he emanated’. He had ‘wealth, power and looks notwithstanding’. Viveka had, ’these icy blue orbs and natural blond streaks she’d covered with the veil.’ This ensnared and captured him. When he spoke, ‘he had an arresting voice and the velvet-and –steel-cadence of his tone held her. ’Mikolas could hardly see her face, but the intensity of blue eyes couldn’t be dimmed by a few scraps of lace’.’She was beautiful.’ ‘While, he was really good –looking.’ ‘I’m a man who gets what he wants, I want this merger’. ’Marry me in your sister’s place’.’It was utterly enthralling, to watch her parted and quivering mouth’ at this statement! To which Viveka retorted, ‘I’d rather take my chances with the sharks’. Mikolas says with flatness of his voice, ‘You already have’. ‘She had no idea whom she was dealing with’.’She might be impulsive and a complete pain in the backside, but she was perceptive’.’She should have known that there’d be a cost to his saving her life’.’Men expect things when they do you a favour ‘.’Let us be clear, the debt you owe me is the loss of a wife’.’She was not built for fair- weather frolics’. In his mind, ‘it was the authentic beauty that shone through her’. The plot is engaging, enticing, with not much of extraneous detail, the story line flows through till the end. There is plenty of sparring, humour and wit and their love is there for all the readers to see! Ofcourse their issues need to be resolved before any headway in their attraction and chemistry for each other can take place between them. The characters develop by the end of the story with a particular icing which the Romantics will love! A must buy book as it is a page turner and brilliant to cherish this story for a long, long, time. Exquisite!
