Life as a single mother is really tough. You need to make all decisions on your own, there is never really someone to properly support you. You can talk to friends and family but it never really takes any of the stress or hurt away.

And thus you become as independent as you can be, and making sure that you never stop to think of anything else other than getting beyond the current situation that you're facing. Get up, get going and move on the the next child-raising step.

Kate is a divorcee and has a small girl, diagnosed with a tumor. :( Lack of money is actually one big problem hovering in front of Kate,when fate dumps her on Lucas’s doorstep - literally.

She was allowed to stay in his ramshackle mansion by his Aunt, little knowing that she would run into the owner of the house who had no clue that he has an unexpected guest. Lucas’s shock is understandable when he returns home one day to find a skimpily clad beautiful woman munching an apple in his kitchen.(Om

Safe in the Tycoon's Arms. What a title, huh? I kind of love it, it reminds me of some of my favorite reads when I was younger. Books I borrowed from my aunts. This was a good story, a bit like a made-for-television movie, in fact.

With the caretaker's permission, Kate is shacking up in an all but abandoned mansion in NYC. She's in the city seeking treatment for her daughter's brain tumor. The hospital is requiring payment up-front, and after many unsuccessful tries, Kate is ou

WOW! Words can not describe how I felt reading that story, but then what would be the point in leaving a review for 5 stars. (There may be some spoilers -read carefully)
Amazing! Heartwarming! And relate-able!
As I started the story with Kate wondering in the house on a stormy night, I was curious when we would meet the owner, Lucas. When we soon met him, I was taken back! What a way to meet, Mr. Oh-So-Sexy! Umm. I loved how Jennifer introduced both the characters to us!!

Safe in the Tycoon’s Arms
By: Jennifer Faye

Safe in the Tycoon’s Arms is a contemporary romance. Billionaire Lucas Carrington returns from his trip early only to discover Kate Whitley making herself at home in his mansion. I loved their dialogue and their chemistry. They had their hearts broken in the past. Watching their story unfold as they learned more about each other drew me into their lives. I didn’t want the story to end.

I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour in exchange for a fair and honest review. I rated it 4/5 Stars.

Like contemporary second chance romance? Give Safe in the Tycoon’s Arms by Jennifer Faye a chance. Likeable, well developed characters, good dialogue and a sweet romance, kept me turning the pages from start to finish. Reminding us that everyone needs love, even people who seem to have it all, Ms. Faye’s book is a fun reading getaway.

Safe In The Tycoon's Arms is a wonderfully sweet romance in the way you can only find at Harlequin. Kate is a mother in need of help. She's got a daughter that is terribly ill and she needs the funds to cover an experimental surgery.

Enter, Lucas Carrington, a wealthy man who just happens to own the house she's staying in.

Ahhh

When the two of them meet, it is just hilarious, because there is a lot of confusion as to why she's staying in his mansion.

Sparks fly and there's lots of chemistry...so muc

This is the 2nd book I have read by Jennifer, and it was a sweet, uncomplicated read. The two main characters in the book, Lucas Carrington and Kate Whitley are both damaged in a way. The have both been hurt and lied to by their previous spouses, and they don’t trust the opposite sex when it comes to matters of the heart.

Molly, Kate’s daughter is very sick and without a very expensive operation she may not make it. So all throughout the book Kate is planning a fund raising event to raise money f

This is one of those books that sucks you in and it doesn't want to let you go. It's a quick read but here are so many twists and turns. Kate has never had luck with men and now her daughter is in the hospital fighting cancer. Life just doesn't like Kate right now. And now Lucas comes in and makes things even more confusing. Lucas who makes her stop breathing, who makes her heart throb in a way it never has before. He makes her head fuzzy during a time where she needs to have a clear head. Lucas ...more

So. I'd kinda like to meet a Tycoon now. *nods* Safe in the Tycoon's Arms was a sweet read. I don't usually pick up category romances but something about this one pulled me in and I'm glad it did because I had such a good time with Kate and Lucas as they...have a bit of a run in.

The quick of it is that Lucas comes home to find Kate living in his mansion. Much to his surprise. lol And hers too since she was offered the place to stay by someone working at the hospital she's visiting with her daug

Safe in the Tycoon’s Arms is a sweet, endearing romance. There are some emotional twists and turns that keep the reader involved in the story and the budding romance is charming.

Kate has been let down by everyone she has every loved. She puts no faith in or depends on anyone but herself. With her daughter ill and needing to have surgery that is way beyond her budget, she might need to let someone in.

Lucas has been wounded beyond what most men could stand. He does what he considers the noble thin

SAFE IN TYCOON'S ARMS by JENNIFER KAYE

A quick, short and romantic read that will make you feel giddy and romantic as the story goes. I like that the characters are mature and different from each other but the attraction was palpable you feel it in every scene. A funny 1st encounter leads to helping a woman in need and the rest follows.

Safe in Tycoon's Arms is a kind of story you want to read if you want something quick but will leave you happy after reading it.

1/2

My Review:

4.3 Star Review - Safe In The Tycoon's Arms

When you are lied to by those you trusted then you can't easily trust. Lucas and Kate have both been hurt by those that they thought loved them. Kate will do what ever it takes to save her daughter even put up with Lucas.

Lucas and Kate's chemistry is strong. But you wonder if the mistrust will be the downfall of them.

Characters are believable and story flows nicely.

Review Posted on HarlequinJunkie.com

It had to have been the boxers. That’s why she didn’t recognize the owner of the house in which Kate was staying. Lucas Carrington ambushed her during the storm that night, and things weren’t the same since. She already had enough on her plate, and now she had to deal with the famous bachelor who put a wrench in her plans to save her daughter’s life. Read More

I won this book in a giveaway so I wasn't really sure what it was about but I'm happy I went in not knowing.It's a lovely romance. I was worried that this book was going to leave me with a sad ending and crying, but I have to say that I am happy with how it ended.It left me with a goofy grin on my face. Thanks for this enjoyable read Jennifer Faye.

Within the genre, this is a wonderful story. I loved the way that these two leads were brought together, even if it was unrealistic at times. I don't need a romance to be completely believable, just imaginable and we all know that the two main characters are going to be together at the end. That is not a spoiler, that is just a given, but no problem, because the journey was wonderful. I read it in a day and it has reignited my interest in Harlequin again. Well done Jennifer Faye!

I got my first reads copy in the mail and could not put it down until I finished it the same day. I loved Kate and Lucas's relationship. It's a quick read that I recommend to anybody who loves a good romance :)
