Publisher's Summary

A very seductive kind of deal

Conall Devlin is a ruthless man ready to achieve ultimate success. So, to acquire the missing piece of his property portfolio, he's willing to accept an unusual term of the contract - taming his client's wayward daughter!

Party girl Amber Carter appears to live a life of luxurious frivolity, but deep down she feels lost and alone in her material world. Until one morning her new landlord turns up, every inch of him pinstripe-clad perfection, offering her an ultimatum: Either Amber is thrown out onto the streets or she accepts her first-ever job - being at his beck and call day and night.

At the Sicilian's bidding - and bedding!

The only link Jemima Barber has to her troubled late twin sister is her nephew. So when the boy's father storms into their lives to reclaim the child who was stolen from him, Jemima lets the forbidding Sicilian believe she is her smooth seductress of a sister.

Though his son's mother might be gentler than Luciano Vitale remembers, he's resolved to make her pay in the most pleasurable way imaginable. But when he discovers she's a virgin, her secret is out! Now Luciano has a new proposal: Jemima can atone for her sister's sins - by becoming his wife!

Skip book 1

Book 1 was absolutely awful. I’m not sure what writer thinks people read Harlequin novels for a depressing, degrading and anti-feminine story line but damn! I made it to the third chapter of the first story and was very irritated the heroine was so pathetic. You would think the spoiled little rich girl would have some connections where she could do some modeling gigs or something to earn a living rather than have to work for a pompous asshole when daddy cuts her off. I’m so glad I didn’t pay for this.

The second book was much better and made for a happier read.

The narrator elevated a 4* story to a 5* listen

Ione Butler has a lovely voice. Her narration elevated two good stories to a great listen.

Not a fan of British narrators

The book was okay, but I do not enjoy listening to British narrators for that long.

One good book, one awful.

First of all let me comment on the narrator. Good voice, although the Sicilian accent sounded Russian. But she didn't know many of the words she was reading and consequently said them wrong. Very wrong. Harlequin should have better quality control.
Now the stories
Sharon Kendrick was good, as always. a bit short but engaging and great emotional tension
Lynn Graham, sadly writes in a way that gives the genre a bad name. Pages and pages of waffle, going over every internal thought five times. The purple prose was very irritating, she follows every line of dialogue with one or two hysterical verbs and adverbs. I love adverbs but not in every sentence, please!
May I suggest a writing forum - there are a few on-line which will clean up all that for you - and Harlequin need better editors!

Good

Liked the book and the performance is perfect for both of them
I just didn't like the apparent hate these man seem to have for these woman, so my problem is with the characters and the way the intimate parts are described throughout the stories
