If you’re looking for the perfect romance to curl up with on a cold winter’s night, then look no further than Sophie Pembroke’s fantastic debut novel for Harlequin Romance, Stranded with the Tycoon.

After a long and exhausting day attending a mind-numbingly dull conference, all Dr. Lucinda ‘Luce’ Myles wants to do is go to her hotel room, take off her shoes and have a long soak in the bath. However, on her arrival at The Royal Court Hotel, Luce is stunned when the snooty blonde receptionist behin

received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads and this is my honest review of the book.

If you want a book with simmering attraction slowly building between two characters who think they have nothing in common then you might want to read this book.

Ben lives his life mainly out of the hotels his family owns and doesn't want commitment after what happened in his own past, so he has a one night stand rule.

Luce never gets any time to herself since she always seems to be the one always bei

Stranded with the Tycoon is a beautifully written romance novel with a slow build up.The romance was based more on the conversations between the characters and how they thought about each other rather than their mutual attraction and passion.Read More

I thought I'd written a review for this book last year and am feeling awful that somehow I forgot to hit post and lost my review. I feel awful because Stranded with the Tycoon is something special. I've literally just picked it up to have another read of it because I fell madly in love with Ben and wanted to 'see' him again! It's simply beautiful.

Even though this book was a typical romance book, I happen to enjoy books like that every now and again. A light read when you just want to curl up in a chair to escape and relax. I would certainly read more from Sophie Pembroke. Thank you Sophie for the book. I truly enjoyed it.

This is the first time I'm reading a book by Sophie Pembroke. I must say, it was fantastic. Love the combination between Luce and Ben. Don't forget Dolly, the infamous sister and Seb for being a caring brother. I always expect from the first chapter that Seb must be cold or something, but apparently, he was not cool at all, the terms hot is better.

I really did felt something like annoying especially when there is the part of Tom and Tabitha.

Really want to wrapped my fingers around their neck.

Stranded with the Tycoon is a contemporary romance novel by Sophie Pembroke. It’s set in the UK, mostly Chester and mid/south Wales, with plush hotels and cosy cottages, yum.

This novel tells the story of Lucinda Myles, a woman who makes workaholics look lazy! What with her day job, attending conferences, looking after her family and trying to write a book, Luce hasn’t had any time for romance in the past few years, and she doesn’t see that changing any time soon.

She’s at a conference that she re

I received Stranded with the Tycoon as part of a Goodreads giveaway.

Due to a scheduling mishap at an academic conference the week before Christmas, historian Luce finds herself literally without a room at the inn. A fortuitous meeting with the hotel's co-owner (who also happens to be the former boyfriend of her college roommate) Ben leads to the offer of his suite for the night. Desperate to get home the following day but hampered by an unexpected snowstorm, Luce convinces Ben to drive her to he
