Amber Stone has received a promotion from her boss, Pierre Anton. She is relocated to a beautiful island near New Zealand and made social organizer for one month. She is being paid enough that she will be able to put a down payment on a house for her family, which is the most important thing in her world. The result of her social organizing is supposed to result in the engagement of Mr. Anton’s grandson and a Sicilian princess, Tory.
Jordan Anton is not the grandson of his grandfather’s dreams. Jordan has a law degree from Harvard but, instead of using it within the family business, chooses to work with his aunt on her ranch in Montana. Jordan is tired of his grandfather’s manipulative moves and agrees to a month on a gorgeous island, but he has no intention of becoming engaged.
Pierre Anton is a man who is used to getting exactly what he wants. He believes his money can buy his family happiness. He has told Princess Tory lies about his grandson in order to get her family to agree to this month on a secluded island. While Jordan is away from the ranch in Montana, Pierre is trying to break the ranch. With determination of his own, Jordan may come out the winner in every way. Ticking off his grandfather is just a bonus.
I do not know of anyone who is able to resist a romance novel set on an island. Make it a secluded island with a wealthy and handsome hero and it becomes unstoppable. Jordan is the kind of guy every woman would love to fall in love with while Amber is the woman who would be her best friend. Then you throw in the servants, Cook, Jesse and Sarah, and you have the combination for a terrific book. There is a touch of humor, a lot of heat, and more than enough romance. Ms. O’Clare knows how to add just the right touch of passion to keep this reader interested through the entire book.
