Average read. H decides to seduce the h for revenge(h's brother did something) but he ends up falling for her of course and he is of course dense and needs a punch to his face.
You'd think these King men would learn from the ones who went before... Lucas decided to use Rose to get back at her brother by seducing her. From the beginning he starts to lose sight of his reasoning and just wants Rose for herself. Rose can't understand what Lucas sees in her, but she has always been drawn to him, and is willing to see where it goes. I also like the way that she has learned to stand up for herself, and doesn't let Lucas boss her around. She has no problem telling him when he'...more
Lucas... what were you thinking? Really? You really thought you could seek revenge using a woman you had the hots for and not fall? Silly, silly man. You should have listened to your brother's advice... but nooo, you had to learn the hard way.

Thanks for an entertaining couple of days, Ms. Child.

Very entertaining. I loved how the story and characters developed.

Lucas King was just liked his brothers and cousins. Arrogant, gorgeous, egotistical, and determined but when they falls for a woman, they stays fallen. No escape. And that's what happened to him. Lucas planned to seduce Rose and use her to get back at the man who had betrayed him. Her older brother. Perfect plan wasn't it?

But falling in love with Rose wasn't part of the plan. So what will happen when Rose learn about the truth?

Harlequin Desire - Kings of California #9

Rose Clancy dreamed of her brother's best friend for years but he was off limits to her by her brother. He is Lucas King. They meet again later and he hires her for nightly cooking classes as she has just started this business. 4 1/2
Just me or is there something a little bothersome about a hero that decides he's going to seduce a woman as revenge on her brother? In modern times not a historical context where she would be "ruined". I like Maureen Child but this isn't one of her better books.
This was a good read,liked the the way story and characters develloped but would have loved it if Lucas instead of waiting for an opportunity or chance would have confessed his feelings.Other then this liked the book and enjoyed it

Good read
Recommend it
Good average stupid male syndrome read. (Where the guy has rocks for brains, and finally figures out the heroine is the girl for him.)

No typos/editing issues noted.

It was really good. The story was captivating and exciting.
And I want to read the rest of the stories of this series.
