The first third of the book is about Emma and Lucas being trapped in a fancy castle that Lucas owns with his partners/friends from work. There is a bunch of narration in the first third of this book to set up the story that will follow in the rest of the pages. While I appreciate some initial ...more

A Night of No Return is a engaging and emotionally satisfying read
I love office romances and this one though a Boss/PA romance is set completely out of the office environment, which provides the perfect setup for this story.
Lucas drives out to Chigworth Castle to drink himself to oblivion and chase away his demons on this eventful anniversary. When Emma realizes Lucas has left behind an important file they have been working on she decides to drive out and deliver ...more

I'm on the tail-end of my Harlequin binge so figure this will be last one or two for awhile (or until I review the two Christmas HPs I got through NetGalley). Either way I'm a bit Harlequined (My word!) out for the moment so I'm looking at some new reading material. I'll jump right into this one then.
Lucas has issues just like every other HP hero. He had a terrible go at a relationship. He lost someone close to him, etc etc. When ...more
I am in love with Sarah Morgan. It's a young love. But a deep one. I first met her a few short months ago. When I saw a super corny title called Doukaki's Apprentice. Obviously, I scoffed at the title. But then I read the summary and decided to give it a try. And I loved it. Then I read The Greek's Innocent Virgin. Super loved it! Then Twelve Nights of Christmas. Super, super loved it with extra sauce on the side! And it ...more
