I really liked this book. Susan Stephens is one of my favorite Mills & Boon authors and I have read quite a few that are set in Argentina…I love Argentinean heroes…….they are so interesting, dark, handsome, sexy and they play POLO!!!! Diego Acosta, who reminds me of Nacho Figueras….that body, silky, long dark hair….was it any wonder that

Maxie Parrish, his brother’s wedding-planner, was dazzled!!!!
From the first page I knew I was going to love Maxie! What a fab heroine….independent, talented

The Untamed Argentinian is the second installment in USA Today best-selling author Susan Stephens’ captivating family saga about the Acosta family – and it’s an absolute keeper! Tender, touching, affecting and riveting from start to finish, The Untamed Argentinian is the latest riveting page-turner from this talented storyteller!

Maxie Parrish has just got the commission of a lifetime: she’s been hired by her friend Holly to organize her wedding to polo playing superstar Ruiz Acosta on the breath
I won a copy of this book on the I Heart Presents blog. This is the second book about the Acosta brothers that I've read, and it's definitely my favorite. I'll certainly be reading more of Ms. Stephens' books.

Diego is a tortured hero - he's suffered an injury that prevents him from playing polo and is on the family owned island to recuperate. Maxie is the wedding planner for Diego's future sister-in-law and is on the island to plan Holly's wedding there. Naturally sparks fly between the determi

In many ways, this is a very good book. I like the characters, and the story moves along well. There is, arguably, quite a large flaw.

I found this book clunky from beginning to end. There wasn't enough interesting conflict between the hero and heroine. I didn't find the hero sexy or interesting as a character. Instead, the reader had to be told (over and over again) how sexy and interesting he was. The heroine was boring and meek -- I didn't see any real spunk in her personality. The whole subplot with the heroine's father seemed silly and too easily resolved. Toward the end, an entire cast of characters were introduced as obv ...more
This was a fairly nice, quick read, but where it starts off promisingly, it then sort of loses momentum towards the end. I liked the characters of Diego and Maxie, but I felt that the conflict created between them because of Maxie's father's actions was resolved far too easily and far too early in the book. The last 30 pages of the plot felt like they were just there to help the story reached its required word limit.
Stretches credulity a little too much and rushes the ending through too early, b

Not much to say about this one. Probably closer to 2.5 stars than 3. Has an Ok story line, but no big grab me moments. All the emotion seems purely surface level.

Diego is a wounded warrior who has secluded himself on the family island. He has spent a year trying to recover from his polo riding injury to his leg. Maxie is the wedding planner for his brother's fiancee.
this was the first harlequin romance I ever picked up.. after which I became addicted to them.

Susan Stephens was a professional singer before meeting her husband on the tiny Mediterranean island of Malta.

In true romance style they met on Monday, became engaged on Friday and were married three months later. They are still very much in love, though Susan does not advise her three children to return home with a similar story as she may not take the news with the same fortitude as her own moth
