I like Lynne Graham. I guess you all know that by now. This one was great. It is the second of a trilogy of which I've already read the other two. The heroine was not a whiny wimp and she stood up fairly well to the hero. She was susceptible in the bedroom but so was he and that was fine. I don't mind her being led around by her lady bits if it's equally obvious to both of him that he is being led around by his manly parts as well. He was arrogant and out for revenge but he was never an ass to h...more

The heroine Darcy is trying to keep her beloved family home afloat, she has an inheritance due but only if she gets married and remains married for at least 6 months. Since she is busy with her home and her young daughter she has no time, or desire, to meet someone, so she decided to advertise for a husband. The hero Luca has been been searching for Darcy for 3 years after they spent the night together and she stole a very valuable ring. When his investigator tells him about Darcy's predicament...more

This is the second book in the husband hunter series, and clearly the best. This had all the right balance points between the hero and heroine. So often LG writes truly alpha males that can run rings around poor TSTL heroines. But in this series, the heroines can really stand strong against these rough riding heroes and it makes for a fun entertaining read.

Darcy is a well written heroine and Luca is quite scrumptious...A man hell bent on revenge, yet has no idea what hits him when he comes up ag...more
Lady Raven RAVE!
Nancy Leeward cared deeply for her goddaughters, but how had those three foolish girls repaid her love? Maxie was living with a married man, Darcy was a single mom, and Polly was being paid to bear some selfish man's child. Nancy was determined to force them into happiness . . . by stipulating in her will that her millions would only be bequeathed to each of them if they married within a year, and stayed married for six months. . . .

But Darcy's advertisement for a husband that would suit her god...more

Cute and well written romance! The hero wants revenge from his one night stand a con woman or so he thinks but he is not an ass. I liked his integrity, his sensitivity and determination to help the heroine and defend her against her wicked step mother and stepsister. I loved his interaction with his precious baby girl I thought her tantrums were just hilarious! Strong, alpha hero brought to his knees by his love for the heroine and his daughter is always a pleasure to read.

the thing with Graham's books are that the Hero is always over exaggerated and the Heroin is never on the same level there's never usually anything all that great about her except that at somepoint in her life she new that rich man! my point is, the two characters never really meat up at a point and thats always dissapointing for me.

Luca has been searching for Darcy for three years, ever since he met her at a party, brought her home for a night of amazing sex, and then woke in the morning to find she'd vanished and stolen a family heirloom with her. Having found her, and learning that she has one year in which to get married or else she'll lose her inheritance, he shows up on her doorstep. She doesn't recognize him and agrees to marry him, thinking that he's just some guy responding to the ad she put in the paper. Matters a...more

A good read on a rainy afternoon.
Tishke
This book has the right amount of mystery in it. He believes the woman he spent a night with three years ago was a world class burglar who had targeted him, wormed her way into his invitation only- exclusive Venetian costume party, his home and into his bed to steal an antique and priceless ring. She thinks he is just a man answering to her advertisement for a temporary husband. Add the wicked step mother, the jealous step sister, and a two year-old throwing major fits and he gets more than he e...more
