Erotic romance: Faith Castle is the only child of a wealthy man. Connor Kingston is a man with ambition: Marry into the Castle family, and get his father in law to make him CEO of the company. So, he makes a deal with Faith, who is not a classic beauty, and has no confidence in herself: Marry him, convince her father to make him CEO, and Connor with give her the children she wants more than anything, and he'll be completely faithful to her. When I started this book, I didn't want to finish it. I hated Faith, Connor, her father and relatives, pretty much everybody in the book. But, by the end, almost everybody redeams themselves. The ending of the story is very satisfying. Sex scenes are very steamy.

I found this book through looking at books listed on the daily wish list and what a great book!

A great twist on a marriage of convenience.

A HOT HOT HOT book. Boy was it hot!

The beginning was good, the second quarter dragged a little, the third quarter picked up and the finish was great.
Faith, the rich girl, and Connor, the fortune hunter, get together and plan to keep their emotions out of their relationship. She wants children, he wants to be a success by taking the easy road by marrying an heiress, so he can run the family business. Emotions have a funny way of popping up! Connor doesn't know his goose is cooked. Faith gives in to all his sexy adventures and acts out some of her own fantasies. What starts out as just lusty sexual encounters takes a detour to love and happiness.

This book was smokin'! To say these two characters were attracted to each other would be a huge understatement. LOL Sexy talk and actions abound in this one. Hot, hot, hot!

My first read of a Ms. Haynes book and I will definitely read more of her. Erotic and hot..yes..but also had a story line that kept my interest til the end. Unlike other erotica with just sex this one had a decent story. Thus my 4.5 rating.

I don't recall how this book ended up on my wish list but I'm glad I found it! I think it was a FABIL recommendation.

Over all the book was steamy, hot and naughty. I've said it before and I'll say it again I am looking for few hours escape from reality when I read romance and this book delivered.

A little more background on Connor and Faith may have made the connection between the two more believable for some readers but it is an "erotic romance" and it's all about the sex. Nothing hard core, no 3-somes, no BDSM just hot, steamy can't get enough of it sex.

This is a very sweet book. The cover is somewhat misleading. It is a very conventional story with great characters.
Aside from a straightforward plot line, the characters are interesting and well developed. I liked everyone, looked forward to learning more about them and missed them when I finished the storey.

This is a really good book by a great author. She writes in the story style I like...realistic and easy. I like that the main female character has body issues and I like that he puts them all at ease. You should get this. Easy and fairly quick read.
