Although the book was enjoyable, it was not the best of Joan Hohl. The plot was too clich and lots of absurdity. Example, how can a father thrown his own daughter who he loved so much into a marriage just to save his own hide? But all in all, this book is still readable. The characters were strong, it also include secondary characters that was quite intriguing.
This is a good light read for summer. I enjoy this author because she actual has a plot and doesn't write in the typical romance style.
I enjoy most of Ms. Hohl books, but this one not as much. It's an older work, and well used concept.
Frisco chooses to make the sacrifice to save her father and her family's business by marrying the suitor who is intent on taking over the business. They are both attracted to each other, so the choice is not very hard. But dealing with their pride takes a lot of effort for both, and I found it tiring.
fRISCO sTYER NEVER SURRENDERS. aND NOW THAT HER FATHER HAS WOEFULLY MISMANAGED THE FAMILY BUSINESS, IT'S UP TO HER TO SAVE THEM BOTH...BY STOPPING THE RUTHLESS TAKEOVER BID OF LUCAS MACCANNA.
Lucas cares about only one thing: winning. He makes his own rules, and takes no prisoners - or lovers. Until he meets Frisco...and desire flames sweet and hot. Now he has a new game plan: a no-holds-barred battle to possess the company-and the woman.
Frisco should be shocked by Lucas's proposition: a partnership in business only if they become partners in bed. But he's too arrogant, too handsome, too wildly arousing.
Her counter-offer is one last desperate bid for control: marriage- take it or leave it. Yet from the moment Lucas says yes, all the rules change...as two passionate adversaries discover that, in the game of love, it's every woman and man...for each oter.
