Samantha Cole

I loved this novella, it was everything I wanted and more. I’ve read all of Ms Cole's work and although she excels writing the stories of hot alpha men, this one is actually little different, and I loved it so much. If I could give 1000 ⭐, I think I would do it.

When Vanessa Adams discovers the sale of a “family” property that has historical meaning she tries everything to make an appointment with Dylan McBride, owner of the company handling the sale, with no ava

The start of this book has the h begging the hero’s secretary for a meeting. Beyond frustrated she overhears a conversation and decides to take advantage.

What follows is a delightful read that flows well and a H and h that are great together. A little ingenuity and a lot of groveling make this quick read well worth reading.
A delightful, well written novella that you will be wishing was a novel and wanting more of this couple.
Dylan McBride a wealthy real estate developer and Vanessa McBride a history proffesser are at odds over a piece of property that Vanessa believes to have historical significance as being a stop on the underground railway; and as such is trying to get an appointment with Dylan with hopes of convincing him not to sell the property for development.

I love reading Ms. Cole's books! While they usually have a hot, dominant man in them, this one was a little different. Nessa is a history professor trying to get a property deemed a historical site. The only problem is the property is up for sale and will be torn down if she can't stop it. She has tried to meet with Dylan to have him put off the sale, but he keeps cancelling meetings. Since she us desperate, she bids on him at a bachelor auction. What happens when she has him 2000 feet off the g ...more

Vanessa will do anything to meet with Dylan to discuss saving a special piece of property. When her meetings get cancelled she must resort to other options to meet with him face to face. I enjoyed this novella filled with instant attraction and determination by them both to find their HEA. This is a different style of writing by this author but I liked it!

What starts as a way to hopefully save a historical property turns into love. Now I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love Samantha and everything she writes. This book was a bit different than her others, but no less fantastic. I loved everything about this book.

I enjoyed this story, it isn't to heavy, deep or drawn out. Interesting history side as well, though I don't know if it was based on facts. This is the second book in the Bachelor series and I had already read the first one which was good as well. Bachelor's are auctioned for one date all in the name of charity, it is a good concept. So far the dates have been very different and both have been more than either thought they would turn out to be. I found this one fairly light hearted, not to much ...more

A great short read!

Loved this novella by Samantha A Cole. Nessa bids for a date, at a charity auction, with the handsome Dylan. She needs to get him alone and with no means of escape, so that she can convince him to stall on the sale of a building which she feels has great historical significance. Sparks fly on their date and I was hooked straight away. A decent plot with spice and humour. I enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.

I enjoyed this one alot, not a typical Samantha Cole book. Even though I enjoyed it, it fell a little flat for me, she played up the library Chairman "Reverend" and I really expected more of his racial views to come out so it lacked a bit of drama that could have spiced up the story a little.

Other than the misunderstanding between the H and h, it was a normal romance, no drama, no spice, no intrigue not what I expect from SC.

This was a really good, quick, fun read. I enjoyed the historical / archaeological aspect that made the interactions a little more interesting. Vanessa and Dylan are great once they finally get together and I LOVED how Vanessa ended up getting her meeting with Dylan. I voluntarily read this book and enjoyed each and every page.

That is definately one way to make sure the person you need to talk to can't walk out on you before you have presented your argument. This was book 2 in the series I am going to read the rest.

An entertaining read that is a little outside the norm for this author. A touch of history, a few entertaining and steamy sex scenes and characters with depth make this story an easy read with just enough difference to keep you entertained

Yes I am sold on this book. An enjoyable reading experience. Some sexy scenes but not super hot. Tantalizing. Written with humor. If this became a new series for Samantha Cole, I would get it! From a Fan... Pam James.

I loved the gentleman that Dylan is. You don’t find that to often. I loved the dedication to a cause that Nessa possesses. Drawing these two together by fate of a little boy’s accident brought happiness and history honored.
