After my rather bad experience with Turn Me On in the same Dare line, I decided to read another right away to hopefully replace it with a better experience. And this book did do the job.

First of all, some positives: the writing is a lot better than in the aforementioned book. It's competent, clear, it gets the story across without getting in the way or distracting me.

I liked the hero. He's charismatic and confident, but very respectful of the heroine, it's cute how he admires her. He makes sure

If you enjoy novels about the fashion industry, then A PRIVATE AFFAIR by A.C. Arthur is the book for you. In addition to all things vogue, this story includes a hot couple, an old family rivalry, and some very steamy sex scenes. This is a quick-paced read that I read from cover to cover in less than a day.

Riley Gold and Chaz Warren grew up surrounded by fashion. Their respective families own and manage the top two fashion houses in the world. Unfortunately, due to a situation that occurred years

4 1/2 STARS!

A secret hook-up, a family rivalry, and non-stop temptation! PRIVATE AFFAIR by A.C. Arthur is quite the delight with high-powered characters, a hint of mystery and best of all is the steamy connection between this less than ideal match up.

Riley was an easy character to like. She is no nonsense and accepts nothing less than perfection ... from herself and others. If she's going to be labeled an "ice princess" by the industry because of that, then she will be sure to wear it well.

These a grown and sexy characters who are doing grown and sexy things. They are both successful in their own right, but have been fighting their attraction to each other due to their family’s feud.

Fashion executive Riley Gold knows that appearances are everything. And since she has the reputation for being an "ice princess" she will make sure that she is flawless at New Year’s Eve in Milan.

Even though they are families fashion archrivals, social media mogul Chaz Warren and fashion executive Riley Gold will enjoy one X-rated night.

Turns out one-night is no where near enough. Riley and Chaz are having a private and completely naughty affair that they hiding from the tabloids and their

Love your books

I've loved A.C. Arthur from when a former co-worker introduce you to me. It's so sad when years of family feud that they want to carry to their children. I do like that Riley & Chas took there own road. Love it still exist.
Thank you, please give an update on the private affair.
Lovely Loveday
A Private Affair by A.C. Arthur is a steamy Harlequin romance that is sure to keep you turning the pages in this roller coaster of emotion read. A story that pulls you in and holds your attention until the very end. The characters ate well-written with intriguing backstories that tell a story of forbidden romance.

Artist C. Arthur was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland where she currently resides with her husband and three children. An active imagination and a love for reading encouraged her to begin writing in high school and she hasn’t stopped since.

Working in the legal field for almost thirteen years now she’s seen lots of horrific things and longs for the safe haven reading a romance novel brings.
