Sexy single dad Derek Mitchell had learned the hard way to never trust a beautiful woman. So although he would always be indebted to Lainey Adams for thwarting a kidnapping attempt on his beloved daughter, he wasn't about to show his gratitude by offering his heart on a silver platter! But what was the brooding bachelor to do when his matchmaking millionaire father rewarded Lainey's heroism...by giving her part of the family fortune? For despite Derek's love phobia, something about the beguiling Lainey touched his soul, filling him with hope—and desire. Yet he sensed that she was keeping secrets—the kind that could shatter his world..
This book is the ninth book I've read by this author, Donna Fasano, she is fast becoming one of my favorite authors of romantic novels. She keeps them "PG" rated, which is a big plus for me.
I wanted something light to read and this book hit the spot. It had me from the very first words, "Sunlight reflected on the ocean" it drew me right into the story. It was a fast read (I read it in one day) a delightfully fun and charming book with a little mystery thrown in. Frankly, I found it quite entertaining.
Once I started reading the book I didn't want to put it down. I really like reading happily-ever-after romantic books, I call them my 'Cinderella' books, and again this one did not disappoint.
This book is part of my Nook library and I enjoyed it enough to award it 5 lovely star kisses.
