Romancing the Billionaire

Romancing the BillionaireJonathan Lyons loved the adventure of finding a new site and discovering new items that had been lost but his life was never fully satisfying without the woman he loved. Jonathan lost the woman he loved ten years ago but now that she was back in his life he would not let go.

Violet DeWitt was closed off and comfortable in her job as a school teacher. She had wanted nothing to do with Jonathan or the wild goose chase her father would be sending them on, but as she was forced to go Violet went. She was fearful that she would fall right back into love with Jonathan, and with everyday they spent together she was in danger of loving him all over again.

Romancing the Billionaire is the fifth book to the series Billionaire Boys Club by Jessica Clare. I thought this was a great book and a good addiction to the series.

The character of Violet was hardened and closed off because of her past relationship. I wanted to shake Violet to let go a little and trust but the problem when she did that she was always hurt in the end. It takes an effort on Jonathan’s side to show her that she could trust again. Though I will say that it takes Jonathan some time to figure out what he truly needed to do in order to win back Violet. So Jonathan’s character was no villain and was a good man but he liked adventure. Though that life for Jonathan was lonely. I had wondered why Jonathan never even looked up Violet even under the circumstances he was told. I liked that the characters will be back together after ten years as it gave them time to grow up but those ten years left them lonely and disappointed in relationships.

Alright so the ending was yes very predictable because, hey, this is a romance novel, and I know with these types of books I will get that happy ending. But what I loved about the ending was that it was very sweet with the last clue. It gave closure, which I knew it would, and it explained everything. It was what Violet needed at the end.

Well I am moving on to the last book of the series with Cade as the last man. I am interested how Daphne will be. Will she be changed for the better or still self destructive? Once Night with a Billionaire is next.

Scandal and the Duchess

Scandal and the DuchessRose Barclay was hounded by reporters where ever she went. She was not good at dealing with them always but then Steven McBride will be there to help as he will provide a fake engagement. With Steven so close Rose will find herself falling in love with him.

Steven McBride was home for a mission which would only bring sadness to him and the receiver. Steven will delay the news when he stumbles upon Rose and will find it necessary to help her. Steven will find that with every moment he spends with Rose the more he will want her.

Scandal and the Duchess is a novella in the series Mackenzies/Highland Pleasures. This novella is number 6.5 in the series. I really liked this novella. It was quick and fun. I liked that Jennifer Ashley is continuing on with the extension of the McBride brothers.

Steven McBride is mischievous but you know that he is a good man. He works hard and is a man who understands honor. Rose is a young woman who has been through enough but she still finds herself able to help others. Together they are on a mission and things will get heated. It is lustful but there is a sweetness between them, and it builds to a sweet romance.

I liked the mystery of the two pieces of furniture that Rose’s husband left in his Will. I was intrigued with what the Duke had left for his wife and when you found out the mystery it melted your heart. I loved the thoughtfulness of the Duke, it gave Rose something in the end.

I am reading Rules for a Proper Governess next.
