Mrs. Jackson gives us another Steele Hit! I must admit considering the "playa" that Donovan Steele has been portrayed as throughout this series...I DEFINITELY thought there would be more drama...perhaps some of his other women NOT taking to kindly to ONE woman occupying all his attention and time...and making big TROUBLE for him...but SURPRISINGLY the only DRAMA was caused by Donovan, romance as usual is on point...another quick and ENGAGING read...and I can't wait to meet AL ...more
This book has such a high average rating that I thought I'd like it a lot better, but I didn't. It was both slow moving and ridiculous. Ridiculous in that I just ended up getting annoyed.

1) I don't care how hot, if I found my cleaning person (if I had one) sleeping in my bed while they were suppose to be working I would fire them and ask for a refund on that shift. Then I'd clean myself because you can't trust anyone these days.
2) If I had a PhD, I wouldn't be purposefully hiding it from people.
Lady Raven RAVE!

Very good read. I knew it would be with Brenda Jackson's name on it.

I found this book very enjoyable. I love this author's writing style. Very romantic descriptions. I liked the way she created Donovan's character to be sure of himself but at the same time showing vulnerability when it came down to Natalie. Would suggest this to anyone who wants some nice easy, get away from the everyday world reading.

Yum.These Steele boys sure do know how to treat a lady. Felt like I was visiting friends with Donovan and Natalie since I knew about them in Uri's story. It was great seeing how they met. The key to any relationship is TRUST. Without that, there is no relationship. Great read
Pretty good book. Natalie is in Charlotte to help out her aunt who broke her ankle. Fortunately it is summer break so she can take the time away from her job as a chemistry professor. When she meets Donovan the attraction between them is immediate and explosive. She doesn't intend to become another notch in his bedpost, and he won't give up until she gives in.

I liked Natalie. She is a brilliant woman who has earned the respect of her peers. She takes a break for the summer to help out her aunt.

No início, um homem completamente mulherengo mas que vai ganhando maturidade assim que perde a mulher que ama pela segunda vez. Concordo com Channing quando acha que a declaração de Zane não passa apenas de um desejo e não amor, mas ao longo da história, a luta pela seu verdadeiro amor mostrará que realmente os dois se amam de verdade. Foi uma história engraçada, com bons pormenores, mas uma tradução menos eficaz em algumas partes, contudo o leitor consegue perceber a ideia transcrita.

I just love anything Mrs. Jackson write. I have been reading every book she ever wrote for the past 5 years. I came across one of her westmorelands novel and have been reading every single book she ever wrote. s

This book book was awesome. I love the Steele family. They are close net and when they love they love hard. Morgan and Natalie has this building chemistry at first sight of seeing one another. I like to think such a thing as love at first sight still exists.

As always a great read

Ms. Jackson is an awesome author. I could not put the book down. I wasn't sure how it would end, but I was not disappointed.

This book was amazing. This was my favorite of the Steele series so far. Tons of passion and enough to send your imagination over board.

Somehow you can't help but like the Donovan character.

I loved Donovan's story. Mrs. Jackson stayed true to the Forged of Steel force. Donovan and Natalie's chemistry jumped off the pages. Donovan was hot and sexy just like his brothers and Natalie was the perfect woman to bring him to his knees. The only thing I didn't like is as usual Kimmani Press only allows its authors around 250 pages to develop a lasting romance between their Hero and Heroine, but being true to her title as the "Queen of Romance" Mrs. Jackson delivers an explosive page turner ...more

The Lady

This book was tops. It had passion love, and strength in it. Natalie had lacked self esteem, even though she was a professor, and Donovan was arrogant until he met her. This was a true love story in every since of the Word!

Diehard Playboy Donovan Steele wasn't ready for the likes of Natalie Ford. He found out the hard way that he was smitten with her from the time he found her fast asleep in his bed...a bed that he never invited any of his conquests to share. Little did he know that she would not only peek his curiosity, she would also steal his heart and end his womanizing ways. An awesome love story that lures you in from start to finish.

It was a decent book. I'm glad that I read it so that I could read about all of the Steele brothers, but sometimes I think that Ms. Jackson has too many other characters that she is trying to introduce for other books. To try to keep up with all of the family members can be a little cumbersome at times even though it is nice to know who they are when you read another book in the series.

Donovan was worth the wait in this one. Too hot to handle is just what he was in his pursuit in Natalie. He was downright scandalous in what he did and said to get her to fall into his bed. Loved it and couldn't stop reading just what he would do next. Just SEXY!!
