Alex is The Romance Fox
This is the 14th book in the Chastfield Series but really there’s not much about the Chatsfield Dynasty except that the hero and heroine spend a night of passion in one of the hotels!!!!

I was not crazy about the two main characters, which rather spoilt the story for me…I was really excited about the whole building of an ice hotel but let’s just say that whilst that part was nice, the hard-assed Russian billionaire with a huge chip on his shoulder (yes, he was abandoned as a child and lived in th

Lukas,Russian billionaire has met his match in Eleanore,the architect he hired to help him complete his ice hotel in Russia.From the minute these two met,it was sizzling with tension.Eleanore I thought was adorable,these two were like vinegar and oil,and they complimented each other beautiful.There were moments of funny,tenderness,and passion.Loved when after they broke up,2 weeks later ,he follows her back to New York and tells her he loves he and proposes to her on bended knee.I would have lov ...more

Russian’s Ruthless Demand is a well written romance with well matched characters and an enjoyable story-line. Eleanore is an amazing heroine because she is out there proving herself and not backing down anytime. She was wonderfully sarcastic in her dialogues and I found that to be one of the best things about her character. Lukas starts out as a cold unfeeling hero but warms up later with a lot of help from Eleanore. They had an amazing chemistry which made their romance so much more enjoyable. ...more
Could not warm to the shrewish bitchy judgemental heroine and the hero was too beta to manage her. Couldn't make it to chapter 3 due to that and the prose was not compelling.

Slow and boring.

Typical Harlequin but enjoyed the setting.
Sep 10, 2018 rated it really liked it
Quite liked this one overall.
I liked the occasional Russian word thrown in the mix, as I quite like seeing if I've guessed the pronunciation correctly (thanks Google).
Hero: Basically Alex Skarsgard, except Russian *swoon*
Heroine: Youngest of three, living in the shadow of the rest of her family. Talented, but underutilised, and a genuinely good person who loves animals.
Favourite side character: Petra. She knows how to handle Lukas! Basically she's the mother he needed.

Part of a mini-series (The Chatsfield) but can be read as a standalone.

Fairly standard workplace romance with a bit of a slow burn. Quick read.

Wish there was more on the ice hotel- but an entertaining read overall.

bastante interesante la historia del Ruso y la arquitecto, una lucha de sentimientos y al final vence el amor....

This was a classic Harlequin romance. Nothing really stood out for me except Lukas' backstory being a little more tragic than usual. On first reading, that Chatsfield name kept jumping out at me until I realised that I had read a few books from the series. As usual, I was more interested in reading about Isabelle from the time she was mentioned than Eleanore. To me, this was nothing more than a book to read to pass the time.

Part of the Chastfield series of books. It's a series about hotel magnates and hotel life stories. This was an okay read. Was not really into the characters too much. The usual rich, brooding male. And a the architect/designer that will help the Hero build his project. On the way they have an attraction and in the end we know the drill on how this ends. They figure it out.

No Chatsfields involved in this one unless one counts being a guest at a Chatsfield hotel? Lust at first sight? Checked. Millionaire hunk? Checked. Gorgeous heiress trying to make it on her own? Checked. Mind you this is a rich girl who has never seen a sleigh. How is that even possible? Yes, this silly detail stood out for me. Eleanore wasn't so bad, but the story wasn't that great either.
Geraldine Sadiku
Both characters seem to be looking for acceptance and use their own methods of acceptance which in turn leads to an enjoyable romance, Loved it.

Part of the Chatsfield mini series but also a great stand alone.
Harlequin Books
"Exotic Russian phrases and the wintry splendor of St. Petersburg will heat readers’ blood in this beautifully crafted tale. The heroine’s acerbic humor and the hero’s bluntness are both fantastic" (RT Book Reviews, 4 stars).
