Risking it all?

World-renowned gallery owner Rafe D'Angelo has firm boundaries for his romantic conquests and is notorious for leaving ladies wanting more. Which is why it's such a shock to wake and find - for the first time ever - the sheets beside him cold....

Nina Palitov's only act of defiance against a life lived under her father's oppressive control was to spend an exq

Alex is The Romance Fox
This was such a boring story....and certainly not one of my favourites written by this author.

I am not crazy for Russian heros and even less Russian heroines.....they just don't do it for me.

Nina is the daughter of a rich Russian and they now live in New York.
Raphael aka Rafe is a rich and gorgeous New York Italian....blah blah blah.

And then I found myself really struggling to finish the book......very little felt like I was reading an essay!!!

Slutty heroine who treats hero like trash after their night together is not my idea of a romance! What happened to this author? She used to be amazing once upon a time :(

C+ at AAR Lately, my tastes have tended toward historicals, gothics, and romantic suspense. So, for contemporary month, I challenged myself to find a contemporary in my Wall o’ Books that was a romance rather than a mystery. At some point, I’d been fascinated by the fact that Carole Mortimer had published several gazillion books with Harlequin, so I had a few of her Presents titles lying around. I opted to read her 2014 release, A Prize Beyond Jewels.

Though book 2 in a trilogy, this one stands a

This book was very boring. I didn't like the main characters, especially the heroine's relationship with her overprotective father. And the plot twists that make her father go from alleged mafia boss to cute elderly man were so ridiculous that I felt cheated in the end. Romance was okay, but I'm tired of the trend of male love interest awakening virginal heroine's sexual urgings. Also, New York City is supposed to be lavishly described and a part of the story, but I really didn't get a sense of ...more

The sexual chemistry between Nina and Rafe is scorching hot! I like that they both connect intellectually and appreciate each other's professional capability and talents. The fact that Rafe wants to shed his useless playboy image and for her to see he's the new ideas innovative partner in the galleries is always a great sign. he didn't want to hide behind his cavalier attitude to fight for attention as the middle child. In the end Dimitri's secret is kind of an anticlimax so this could gave ...more
It was okay. Nothing exceptional or memorable about this one. Just another ordinary HP. I didn't think that the heroine was cold and cruel towards the hero after she slept with him. I think her defenses were up because the hero never gave any indication that he felt anything special for her. And given his womanizing ways, it was hardly surprising to see the heroine protect herself from potential heartbreak.

I would give it 2.5 stars. Not a bad book but nothing great either.

"Mortimer uses opulent New York City as her palette for an emotionally fraught romance with a mystery. Her heroine is complicated and spirited; her hero is tenacious with hidden depth. Their lively banter camouflages their fears and electrifies their lovemaking". (RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars)
