 Danielle The Book Huntress (Angels Weep For Goodreads)
This book kept me guessing the whole time. Just when I thought I had the story of the Italian billionaire and his blonde Englishwoman girlfriend figured out, Michelle Reid threw me a curveball. The whole aspect of Rachel having had a previous relationship with an Italian the year before, and therefore having a sort of Italian Kryptonite weakness was different. She wasn't some naive, blushing heroine, although that's not to say she's jaded sexually or relationship-wise. Instead, she's a bit older ...more

I love Michelle Reid's books and this is one of those.

Gorgeous Italian hero and strong English heroine - what's there not to love!!!!!!!!!

This one was pretty fun. I liked that the hero got caught flat footed. It was one of those were the first meeting took over half the book. Not kidding. Usually I find that annoying but here it seemed to work for me. I liked that the hero was a little unsure of her and jealous that she had had a previous relationship with a hot Italian who seemed to be actual competition for him. I liked the whole complicated plot that got them together. It was different and when you read as many HPs as I do, dif ...more

Ending way too abrupt. Not my favorite story. Didn't like how the hero did not trust/believe the heroine practically until the last page of the book.

Rachel Carmichael believes in family, even if her half-brother and sister do not. When her half-sister, Elise Castle, is pictured flirting with another man by her husband, she and her half-brother, Matt, convince him it was actually Rachel in the picture. To convince him completely, they have Rachel kiss the man so they can present proof it wasn't Elise, but Rafaelle Villani was not a man to let Rachel get away with bringing the spotlight on him.



Rafaelle is used to woman throwing themselves at m

Not a perfect read but I LOVED how h had been in a relationship before and with a hot guy, not a dud. That made H's jealousy and h's difficult trusting much more believable.

Great story about Rachel, who trying to help out her rather selfish half-sister, gets entangled with Rafaelle Villani and almost immediately is ensconced in his apartment as the media go to town with their supposed relationship. But sparks fly and they begin an affair and then must wait to see if Rachel is pregnant or not.
Another steamy story from Michelle.

I'm not sure why I liked this as much as I did. I found myself wanting an Epilogue in a bad way!
Missy
A wonderful passionate read full of twists & turns with surprises in every turn of the page. The author adds a little cool element with the "Italian Kryptonite" which adds some spice to the romance. A very interesting fun read. There is a story about the half-sister but not sure of the title.

This is absolutely my favorite Michelle Reid book, my favorite Harlequin book ever, even.
Dubaduba
good book, but I wish it had a better ending
Lisa
What an HP is -strong hero, beautiful heroine, conflict, love conquers all.
Jill
Was pretty good actually, although I prefer my romance a little more steamy.
Negar
It is what it sounds like: badly written smut. Good for an airplane ride.
Mousumi Bhattacharya
A huge yawn.Don't bother reading it. Terribally predictable.
Shanelle
As usual Michelle Reid does not disappoint. Full of emotion.

Hi, my name is Michelle Reid and I’ve been writing for Harlequin Mills & Boon for the last twenty years, and the crazy part about it is that I only realised it had been twenty years while updating this page!

So, hang on for a minute while I take this huge milestone in....

Twenty years with almost forty books published or in the pipeline ... I know it isn’t a great average when compared with some
