As a standalone book, I'd give it 3.5 or 4 stars, but as part of the House of Kolovsky series, I felt a bit let down. After spending the other four books getting to know the Kolovsky siblings, I was sad that they barely made any appearances in this book. The other books would give a glimpse into how the other family members were fairing (e.g., Levander and his wife adopting a baby from Russia), and I was hoping this book would at least time up all the stories.

First, let me admit that this is a completely biased review. If you name your heroine Lavinia I will give you and extra star.

I've enjoyed all of the Kolovsky books by Marinelli. It's been interesting to compare the ones written as medical romance to the straight HP's. I really enjoyed seeing the heroine change compared to how she was portrayed in earlier reviews.

Marinelli did a good job of showing how the hero's rough background had mad him an Alpha-Jerk (said fondly, I do love my HP men) and th
The story was good, loved how the heroine wasn't a pushover that cried every 10 pages. But the end seemed like the author ran outta pages and rushed it.
zakahr was a damaged man but he was not mean to lavinia. he was supposedly ruthless but i never saw his ruthless streak. the author just told us he was like dat, like dat and like dat but his actions deciphered another man. he was really nice and he proved it by not going ahead wid his plans to ruin kolovsky!

Me gustan mucho las novelas cortos que son series pero se pueden leer por separado, aunque esta en particular se me hizo revoltosa, me falto mas amor un poco mas de entrega y romanticismo
Finally, a decent ending to the series. Though it STILL felt rushed. I almost feel like these needed to be Presents Plus or something. Something fuller, bigger. The story just felt blah and empty at parts.
And rushed.
Shallow and vain story, really bad even for a HQN. I kept reading for Rachael (a minor character), but I didn't think the ending did her justice.
Ah, me gusto la historia, todo lo que se ocultaba, la fuerza de Lavinia el genio de Zakar. Maravilloso

Finally a female lead who isn't a complete pushover!
missed a couple in this series. Need to find them

She lives in the outer suburbs of Melbourne—pretty much in her car, driving her three children to their various commitments.

Carol writes for the Harlequin Presents and Medical lines and she also writes conte
