excellent story, characters were so vivid!
Not the best Anne Stuart I've read. Romance is a little unbelievable. Typical dark hero, middle of the road sensuality.
Good...Definately one of her darker books
From the back cover:
Rachel Connery is a woman with a mission--to destroy Luke Bardell, the charismatic man who seduced millions of dollars from her dying mother, thus robbing Rachel of her inheritance. Now Rachel wants revenge--and she's willing to enter Luke's lair and risk the lure of his magnetic personality in order to get it.
Luke Bardell is a master manipulator. He always gets what he wants from people, and Rachel Connery looks like and especially easy mark. She is beautiful and angry and spoiled, and the challenge of melting her icy exterior inspires him. For Luke it is a standard ritual.
But desire is a dangerous weapon that cuts two ways. Rachel could get trapped in a nightmare of forbidden feelings...or she could use her strength and intelligence and fierce will to find a way into Luke's heart and force his utter surrender to her--body and soul.
Another great book by Anne Stuart with one of the darkest of dark heros, a cult leader who inherited millions of dollars from the mother of a young woman. That young woman, who was left penniless, eventually comes to his compound to try to get some of her money back. Suspense, mystery, and romance!
Another dark hero - another great story by Anne Stuart. What more is there to say.
