 Danielle The Book Huntress (Self-Proclaimed Book Ninja)
Kelly Hunter is two for two now. I tend to avoid the Modern Romances for Harlequin Presents, but now I know I can get a satisfying read when I reach for her books. She writes chemistry beautifully. The attraction between her characters sizzle, and the dialogue jumps off the page. Her characters are layered, three-dimensional, and have issues, but they work through them and communicate.

I love the Bennett family, just from the two I've read, this and The Maverick's Greek Island Mistress. I am esp
Kelly Hunter's writing just seems to do it for me. My favorite is still The Maverick's Greek Island Mistress but this was very good. The plots of this series so far have not been typical of the Harlequin Presents line. There is little melodrama, no revenge and not a single secret baby yet.

The hero, Luke, and heroine, Madeline, here are as usual very well characterized. Luke' character is dark and he is consumed with his job. He tells her that he won't give up his dangerous job for her and he me
Kelly Hunter is fast becoming a favourite HP author, next to Mira Lyn Kelly. Another five star read from her.

I liked both Madeline & Luke, and the way that their issues are real, not ridiculous ones, that most RL people would solve in 10 seconds flat.
The way that Luke had troubles with Madeline's wealth and her issues with his rather dangerous job, is something that I understand.

Luke's relationship with his brother, Jake, is great, and I love his patience when dealing with Po, Jake's appren
Rating 3.5 stars
Not my favourite of the series, I kind of didn't get on board with the romance that much and like the other book this didn't have much humor and sexual tension. What I liked was the unusual heroine, she was tough and proud of herself, after a childhood spent in foster homes and seeing her father and brother self destruct, she married an older man who showed her love and affection, she didn't love him but honoured him and after his death made his business successful. She doesn't c
I really wanted to love this one, but I just didn't. I enjoyed the widow heroine who married her first husband for the security his fortune provided, and the hero who disabled explosives for a living was intriguing. As nice as their romance was - the security-starved heroine raised in the foster care system falling for a guy who risks his life with every job and the proud hero reconciling his need to provide for a woman with the object of his desire needing nothing from him materially - I didn't ...more

Fourth in the Bennett Family series, and just as good as the previous ones.

I liked how Kelly Hunter inversed the usual M&B tropes here, with Maddy, the heroine, being the insanely wealthy one. Luke was a very alpha hero, which could so easily have gone wrong, but I think it was pulled off perfectly here.

The (unusual for an M&B) Singapore setting and the secondary characters also stood out, especially Maddy's housekeeper, with her hilarious pokes at Luke and references to the Chinese zod
Compromise. This book is about compromise. Amazing.

(Okay, if I have a complaint it's that the hero is the teensiest bit judgey about the heroine's past, but he knows that and he works on it throughout the book. I can respect that. Because it's human.)

From the first page I sensed that this book is part of a series. Not the publisher's series which really not related at all. But a real series, with related characters. Currently I tried to avoid series, because I don't really have the spirit for such a long commitment now. But damn me if this book didn't tempt me to read the whole series. Especially Jake's story, I really want to read it. So that book's definitely in my want to read list :D
Back to this book. I like the story enough. I always di
the 2nd book in the bennett family series, and for some reason i just couldn't get into it. set in singapore, which is nice, but we didn't find out much about the country, customs, etc. i know that's a bit much to ask for in a category book. but....
Fresh and satisfying. Refreshingly free of cliche.

If you can overlook the daggy warrior references and underutilised Asian setting, there’s enough depth in the central relationship to make this book a pleasure to read. If you enjoy the daggy stuff…well, that just makes it even better.

This was my first Kelly Hunter book, but it won’t be my last. I don’t care what anyone says about the super daggy Karate Kid-style set up at the beginning of the novel, or the constant references to Chinese zodiac sign

I love this book but it took me forever to finish. I love Luke and Maddie they are such wonderful characters. Luke believes his ideal mate will be some innocent girl in constant need of rescue this goes well with his hero complex but Maddie does not need saving because she has saved herself. She married a wealthy older man not for love but stability and people find her whorish because of it. She does not love easily because everyone that she has has died. Luke and Maddie compliment each other we ...more

This might be the least Harlequin book I've ever read that came out from Harlequin. It's almost hard-boiled, like a 1930s detective novel. Odd, but compelling nonetheless. Enjoyable, but don't expect a classic Presents experience.

I could cope with the unprotected sex in a lift, the martial arts, the kid off the streets with a heart of gold etc etc., I read for those plotlines. However, the phrase "...or so she thought" is a deal breaker for me. DNF
Another fun Bennett family book by Kelly Hunter. This one didn't grab me quite as much, but I still loved the characters. I look forward to Jake's book.
Disappointing downturn in this series. I found this couple annoying. And some of the plot just seemed like a set up to the final book.

I enjoyed the straightforwardness of the story (no Big Mis where another author might've used one). Compelling and emotionally satisfying.
Not what i expected from a harlequin romance book.
