Challenging Dante is my favorite book in this series about four sisters married to billionaires.I enjoyed Topsy( hated the name) as a heroine, she did not mince words and yes,she did challenge Dante at every turn which I enjoyed.She made it know right from the start that she was not a pushover and held her own very nicely with Dante.
I enjoyed how their relationship progressed thru the story andtheir love scenes had a nice sizzle.
It was great "seeing" Mikhal,Kat ,and the other siblings,their husb...more
I really enjoyed this final installment of the Bride for a Billionaire series. In my opinion it was the best of the four. I liked the plucky heroine even if her name was too plucky for words. The author made such a big deal of her only being 4'10"but then didn't use it in the story in any way. We never even found out how tall the hero was and where her head came to on him. I know it's nit picky and not really important but if you make your heroine so short their needs to be some reason for it. U...more

This was a fabulous conclusion to the Marshall Sisters finding their Billionaires Series and the book I most enjoyed.

I really liked them....these uber rich men being tamed by the gorgeous sisters...fabulous!!!!
I loved can one choose that horrid name over Topaz....she's my favourite sister of them all.

I normally love Lynne Graham heroines but I hated this heroine with a passion. She is cold, arrogant and unfeeling and always mean. All she does it be negative about everything and criticizes Dante because she has such a high IQ and is a genius in Maths *rollseyes* She thinks so highly of herself that she doesn't think anyone is capable of doing anything without her. I hate how she thinks everything has to be her way of the high way because hero is so beneath her.

Hero was sexy and dreamy but I w...more
Quite enjoyable series by LG. Not so impressive as her old books though, nothing to write home about. What I noticed about the 4 books is that LG's heroes are not ruthless or cruel as her old heroes but they are still arrogant, insensitive, with no connection whatsoever with their feelings. Till the final chapter, where they suddenly discover that they love heroines and cant live without them.
Her heroines have more backbones but when heroes touch them they instantly melt into a puddle at their...more
Lynne Graham usually has heroines I like from beginning to end. This is the first LG book where it took me ages to warm to a heroine.
Challenging Dante is the last book in a series about sisters. I really hoped Topsy's book would be the best. It wasn't. I should have known from the title the heroine, Topsy, would be annoying by always challenging the hero.

What really annoyed me was Topsy was so judgmental towards the hero without ever knowing him. That grated. It caused me to struggle to get thru...more

This is my favs book from A Bride for a Billionaire series. I love it

Topsy really fierce heroine, i love her charchter, shes strong and determined at the same times she quite shy near men. This heroine have brain and witty too :D

Dante is your typical hero, Hes arrogant and belive the worst from woman. Hes noot keen to relationship but you will adore him cause he really care about his mother

I really love this story, i cannot put this book i just read it straight away. And i like the ending as alw...more
Great work Ms. Graham. There may some hope left for you after all! As another reviewer mentionned, this final installment seems to be the pick of the lot. I was actually caught off guard by the mother's secret which wasn't what I was expecting at all so that really threw me for a loop. I also liked how at the end the heroine made it very clear to the hero that she didn't just want to rush into marriage and they actually had a long engagement. Good for you Topaz! I highly recommend this to all HP...more
The only thing that kept me from giving this book one star was the H's mother and step-father. They were lovely and well written, and I managed to finish the book simply to see what happened with them.

Dante's aggressive sexual behaviour toward Topsy was more suited toward a villain than the H of a romance. The way he treated Topsy - physically manhandling her, verbally overriding her when she said no, telling her that he didn't really believe her objections to sleeping with him because she didn'...more

When Dante Leonetti hears rumors about his mother's strange behavior and her new social secretary, he goes to his ancestral estate to check things out. There he finds the diminutive Topsy Marshall who seems to have his mother and her new husband wrapped around her little finger. Well, he has a way with women but, Topsy isn't buying his line! Actually, Topsy has a secret of her own and sleeping with Dante isn't part of it. Dante is nothing if not persistent......

I really didn't like Dante for mos...more
This novel almost felt like it had too many ideas. Both the heroine, Topsy, and the hero, Dante, seemed to have a huge amount of baggage being brought to the story, in addition to all the extra secrets and misunderstandings going on. While it's more similar to real life, it does mean that all the accusations and guilt flying around does take a bit of getting used to. Apart from that though, this is a fairly nice, standard Mills and Boon novel. Dante and Topsy have good chemistry and, while I wou...more

Ga suka dgn heroine yg gampang melted dgn hero-nya yg super duper arogan. Bgtu pula dgn bnyknya kesalahpahaman yg berlarut2 (khas lynne graham).

Tapi setelah 1/2 hal ada perbaikan
Ick. Too much focus on sex and so many references to nipples, crotch, etc. This occurred immediately, right from the first meeting. The relationship development felt weak. She forgave him for the Cosima thing too easily. Boring.
I found this harlequin to be quite boring compared to some others that I've read. There was very little drama and despite it all, I felt no angst what so ever. It was just alright in my books.
Enjoyed this novel, but thought most of the secret keeping was ridiculous. I also do not think it was as well written as the 3 previous in the series.
I really enjoy Ms. Graham's books when the heroine has brains and backbone. This one had them in spades. Really enjoyed it even with the cheesy ending ;-)
the finale to the Marshall sisters series. was a good book (i liked dante) but topsy seemed very impersonal at times. still though i love LG books
