The beauty of Miranda Charles' Captured by Love series is the exposure of the foibles of human character. Love does not mean perfection. Love means accepting the good, the bad and the unexpected that life throws at you. TOGETHER! Jarryd and Marilyn allowed secrets and outside force influence to weaken the strength of their relationship. A long lost mother, a secret inheritance, money and scheming outsiders have a toxic impact on a once strong bond. Will love allow Marilyn and Jarryd to see the e ...more

Another fantastic book in this series. You can't help but fall in love with all the guys and girls in these books. Jarryd loved Marilyn so much he was willing to put feelings and needs aside to protect her. I love reading stories like this that pull you in and you feel all the emotions the characters do. Can't wait for next book in the series to come out.

The Unknown Billionaire: Captured by Love Book 6 is by Miranda Charles. It is really a good book and yet is easy to read and enjoy.
Jarryd Westbourne had dated Margaret Grant for two weeks and then broke it off. He said there wasn’t any chemistry but Margaret knew better. She questioned why he would break it off. She thought it was because she was the only heir of the Grant fortune and he didn’t make that much in his business. She didn’t know that he was to become a billionaire when he inherited

A really quick read with an HEA after much deception and misunderstanding. I enjoyed it as it was short and sweet. A bit clichéd because lying and omitting important things about yourself never bodes well for a good relationship, even if you think it's for the right reasons.

This is another books in the Captured by Love game. Jade Rehnnet-Bilton told Marilyn that she is betting on Jarryd to be the next one to get married. Marilyn is a little upset, and Jade notices and asks her what is wrong. Marilyn tells her that her and Jarryd were dating two months again for three weeks, and then suddenly he tells her that he doesn’t think they are compatible even though their chemistry is like dynamite. Marilyn is afraid it is because her parents ar so rich that he is intimidat ...more

Jarryd is stuck between a rock and a hard place. A new inheritance in the billions, a new business to learn, and business deals still in the works that make it so that he has to keep everything going on to himself. Of course all this happens just as he's starting to get into a relationship with Marilyn so rather than be dishonest he breaks things off with her. In the midst of another bet Marilyn can't let go of the fact that she thinks Jarryd wasn't honest in his reasons for walking away, when h ...more

Complimentary copy provided by author for an honest review.
I must confess I'm a bit addicted on her writing and after a while reading this series you get the feeling that you're also a part of the captured by love family.

What can you say I love the whole concept of this group of friends, everyone of them wants to get the others their own love. Also I love the way that in every story you still get an update about the other, babies, engagements and they way they protect each other.

The Unknown Billionaire by Miranda P. Charles is the sixth book in her absolutely wonderful Captured By Love series. The friends are back together again, raising money for charity by betting on each other's love lives. LOL. This really doesn't get old, and it's so lovely to see past characters interacting again. This time around, the story focuses on Jarryd and Marilyn. Two people, who at their core, hold the same values and truly love each other, but because of circumstances and good intentions ...more

Marilyn tells Jade how a few weeks ago her and Jarryd were dating and having a great time then all of a sudden he calls it quits and uses the excuse that there is no spark!

Miranda P. Charles is one of my "go to" author when i need a sweet, sexy and exciting contemporary romance!!!! Well written, with a good plot and lots of twists, addictive characters, a handful of heat and an interesting story, "The Unknown Billionaire" is a pure pleasure!!! Marilyn and Jarryd's tale is a beautiful reminder of how background, social and financial differences can be insignificant when true love is involved, but also how r

Oh Jarryd, what are the secrets that you are hiding from your friends? Marilyn and Jarryd started dating and then he pushed her away. His birth mother had found him which she wanted kept secret because of who she was then she died. Marilyn is so confused by Jarryd’s rejection so when he suddenly wants to date again, she is even more shocked. Well, these two definitely have off-the-charts chemistry in and out of the bedroom. When Jarryd’s secrets are revealed, will Marilyn be able to forgive him? ...more

Jarryd says, fairly early on in the book 'If there was anything he didn't want to lose, it was Marilyn's trust'. This being the case why didn't he trust her not to betray a confidence and TALK to her? At every opportunity he put this off, even knowing that she was bound to find out sometime and that if it came from anyone other than him it would be a disaster. For me, this major misjudgement, affected how I felt about the character and I didn't really get into the book until about two thirds thr ...more

It's time for the bets again - who will get hit with cupid's arrow? I love this series!!! I love this group of friends! Each book takes you back to the charity betting, parties, love and fun. This is Marilyn's the organizer of the charity game's love story. When a bet is placed on Jarryd, Marilyn admits to her friend that they dated, but he left her because there was no spark.

Captured by Love, the game that a group of friends started to see who would be the next off the singles market. Marilyn Grant is in charge of this little game. She becomes more and more frustrated when Jarryd keeps getting picked for this new round.

Marilyn and Jarryd had a glorious time together, but then he told her that there was "no spark". She just doesn't get it.

It's time for the latest round of bets, but it's one bit in particular that has Marilyn upset though nobody really understands why.

Jarryd did something monumentally stupid by letting Marilyn go, but he was trying to protect her. Now that things are settling down for him he wants to try to win her back but because of the secrets he's keeping things don't quite go the way he planned.

Secrets always come back to bite you in the butt every single time.

This is the first book I've read by this author. I liked it but felt it started a little slow. It took me awhile to get into, but it did pick up and I'm glad I finished it. Even though it is book six in the series, it can definitely be read as a standalone alone. I didn't really ever feel lost. However, I agree with the description about reading them in order. I wish I had done that to have a little history on all the characters. I'll probably be going back and reading the others to get caught u ...more

Absolutely loved Jarryd and Marilyn's story. With all their friends in common, at a party, they are obviously watching each other, no one knows why they aren't together. Jarryd found out some news he cannot share yet, he feels by not telling Marilyn/ or being with her he is protecting her. Yet, their chemistry is too strong, they are drawn, so he gives in. Join in, enjoy their journey, is a beautiful, touching, enlightening, story. Can they both survive the secrets by omission? This is a must re ...more

The Unknown Billionaire is a very dramatic romance. Jarryd's life is a rollercoaster of ups and downs. He finds his birth mother, and looses her. He inherited billions from her when she died, but did not use any of it. He fell in love with with the girl of his dreams, and almost lost her because of the inheritance. This is a gripping, edge of your seat drama that had me yelling at the characters in the story. It is a great read, I loved it.

ARC Review.
I really enjoyed Miranda's latest story. The characters were engaging and kept me interested in their relationship ups and downs. Jarryd and Marilyn as a couple keep it steamy and yet very real.

I loved their group of friends! Now I am going to read the back catalog to get caught up on all of their stories. I will now kept a watch out for any story by Miranda as she takes a place in my favorite authors list.

Jarryd Westbourne just became a billionaire but he did't expected for his reputation to be tarnished. Marilyn is in love with Jarryd but he feels like their relationship could hurt her since a scandal is about to happen. I was awaiting anxiously Marilyn's story and Miranda didn't disappoint. I loved the chemistry between Jarryd and Marilyn, the suspense within the story, and revisiting all my favorite characters. I can't wait for the next billionaire to fall in love.

Miranda P. Charles is the author of more than twenty steamy, stirring and suspenseful contemporary romance novels.

She prefers to spend her time in front of her laptop, putting into words the love stories that play in her head. Don't get her started with reading a great book, though, because she has the tendency to not put it down until she gets to the last page.

She does have a life outside of book
