THE PAMPERED HEIRESS AND THE SELF-MADE MAN

This book is one of the Landon's Legacy series. It is the story of Kyra and Antonio.

Kyra is the only sister of Cade, Grant and Zach. She is a youngish beautiful heiress who is the apple of her daddy's eyes, and a baby in her brothers' eyes. All her life she had played the role of the perfect daughter for her control-freak father and the happy girl for her over-protective brothers. But it was all pretence. Underneath this appearance, laid an unsatisfied girl who wanted to embrace life more freely and be taken more seriously.

Antonio is a thirty-something successful half Castilian-half Mayan business man. He never knew his father and was poorer than a church's mouse. In addition, he has an issue with women born into money. His first love was an heiress who mocked and ridiculed his proposal because he did not have a blue blood.

How does Antonio, who cannot stand pampered heiresses and Kyra, who cannot stand controlling men fall in love with each other?

They meet at a charity dinner, unprepared for the desire that hit them. They desire and hate each other on sight! A few weeks later, they meet again when Antonio rescues Kyra from an attack. She was on holiday in Venezuela and lost all her money and papers. She did not want to call on her brothers because they will patronise her. Instead, she asks for Antonio's help.

Antonio finds there an opportunity to teach a spoiled heiress some humility. He forces her to work as a maid in his island in order to earn her return to America. But she never ever had the opportunity to really do her chores. Her first day as a servant quickly becomes her first day as his special bed partner.

The passion is intense and the love quick and strong. But before they open their heart to each other, a misunderstanding separates them. They will be reunited when a restless Antonio starts a cold revenge against Kyra by attacking her late father's business.

I loved how he hid his trembling hands and managed to talk coldly to her at the same time. I loved how she confronted him, not pleading with him but demanding answers. With those two strong characters, sparks were meant to fly! This is a good book.
