“From first page to last, I was completely hooked.”
Cilla Danforth is more than just a pretty heiress; she
is an up and coming businesswoman with something to prove! If given
the chance, she knows she can turn around a floundering store in
the Danforth empire to cater to a young, hip crowd with deliciously
expensive tastes. Such an establishment would also be the perfect
venue to launch Cilla D--her very own line of outrageously sexy
lingerie. Who would have guessed that a chance encounter with a
sexy Good Samaritan on a lonely desert highway could affect Cilla's
career and shake up her life right down to the foundation?
Mitchell, once a mover and shaker among venture capitalists in the
tech world, has taken a detour on his career path to work for Danforth
in Business Development, as they expand their presence in Europe.
Surprised to learn his stranded motorist (and subsequent hotel romp)
was actually the boss' daughter, Rand finds himself pulled off Europe
and paired with Cilla on her pet project. Can Cilla's business plan
work? Will she be willing to be a team player in and out of the
office? Will Rand be able to resist Cilla's charms long enough to
meet the expectations of the Board?
but the Best continues Ms. Hardy's reputation as a writer of
red-hot contemporary reads! From first page to last, I was completely
hooked. Cilla and Rand are fun and wickedly sexy. Cilla pushes the
envelope with her business ideas and ultimately takes Rand out of
his comfort zone. Rand on the other hand, challenges Cilla's concept
of teamwork, both in a romantic sense and with respect to her career.
Cilla's outlook is understandable yet not entirely excusable. Yet,
Rand seems at time to be almost too forgiving, letting Cilla's antics
slide until the camel's back is finally broken. However, the solution
to their problems will leave readers with a contented feeling that
all is right in the world! As I've said before, the Sex
& the Supper Club is one series not to be missed!
Sex & the Supper Club will be going
on hiatus until the summer of 2006. However, fans of this author
are sure to be delighted with her upcoming releases for Silhouette
Special Edition as well as her first romantic suspense offerings
scheduled for 2005. Until then, this reader plans to revisit Ms.
Hardy's backlist which is full of sinfully sexy and unforgettable
“A wonderfully sensual and well-written novel”
When elegant and independent Cilla Danforth finds herself with a
flat tire in the middle of the desert, she decides that waiting
for a tow truck is a waste of valuable time. While she is tottering
on her stilettos and begging the lug nut to give way, a car stops.
Thinking about all the serial killers in the world, makes Cilla
decide to wait for her rescuer inside her Porsche, with a tire iron
close by. Expecting the worst, she is shocked when the most beautiful
man she’s ever seen, is walking toward her.
Mitchell can’t believe how fate seems to be conspiring against
him. What are the chances of having a mind blowing-evening with
an incredible woman and then the next morning find out that she
is actually his boss’s daughter? Instead of running for the
hills like he should, he finds himself unable to think of anyone
has tried her entire adult life to get her father to take her ideas
seriously. She knows that she is not being utilized to the best
of her ability, within her family’s business. Which is why
it is so important to her that she is given the chance to revamp
one of her father’s clothing stores that is currently losing
money. What she isn’t counting on is a babysitter by the name
of Rand Mitchell. Can they work closely together and forget the
intense chemistry between them? Or can they have both?
but the Best by Kristin Hardy is a wonderfully sensual and
well-written novel that provides us with engaging characters, a
fabulous setting and a love story that shows us that by learning
to lean on one another, and having a little trust will make an intense
infatuation grow into a lifelong love. I thoroughly enjoyed reading
this novel, which is book three in the Sex
& Supper Club series, and am avidly awaiting the release
of the subsequent ones to be released, summer 2006.
