I’ve read a lot of category romances in my time. One thing that we all love is the ruthless tycoon (or prince or sheikh of course) whose arrogance and physical desire for the heroine makes him run roughshod over her, giving her a taste of incredible passion before reluctantly falling in love. Sometimes there’s amnesia, sometimes there’s blackmail, or even secret babies, but in the end, it’s the arrogance and incredible abilities as a lover that we enjoy reading about. While this does follow the “standard” formula for a HP — virgin heroine is blackmailed into being the mistress of a powerful tycoon, and of course the couple discovers incredible passion together — there are enough deviations from the standard to make this a very refreshing read.

I have to say, this is one of the most enjoyable HP’s that I’ve read, and that’s saying something. There was still deliciously hot UST and lovemaking, and enough of the HP standby’s to appeal to fans of the genre, but Sally’s power in the relationship, and the fact that Zac grovels so wonderfully in the end made all the difference for me. A very cheerful 4/5 Stars
