Synopsis from Goodreads:

Kate’s waited three years to meet the new owner of Darrock Castle. What she did not expect was her intense attraction to the sexy-as-sin recluse billionaire with dubious scruples that included—but was possibly not limited to—random threats, unreasonable firings, community snubbing and suspicious helicopter activity. But she’s falling, sinking to the bottom, and there she finds a vulnerability in the man she’d never have imagined.

When Alexander Gerardo decides to teach the local reporter a lesson, what he finds instead is a woman who fills spaces he’d never known were there. Who crashes over walls he would have sworn he’d never erected. His natural aversion to the media has deep roots, but when it comes to Kate, he’s never wanted anything or anyone else more. Even if it means he’s playing with fire and tempting disaster.

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

This was a well written and approachable novel that really gets you going. I was drawn in by the well-built storyline and found the story easy to visualise. Robyns’ descriptions drew you right into the town where the story took place, allowing you to become a participant rather than simply an observer.

I felt in touch with the female lead of this story right from the very beginning. The male lead was a bit off the wall, but as the author ensured that you have his history you can see where he’s coming from. The supporting cast varied in their development. Being that this was the second novel in the series, leading up to others development left certain characters in a shroud of mystery. That said, it’s also very easy to read this novel as a standalone.

I must say though, I really didn’t expect that ending. It’s a bit of a cliffhanger, but that’s ok because I can’t wait to read more from this series.
