Publisher's Summary

One billionaire... one tomboy... one night of magic. Miracle or mirage?

Empire builder Dominic Santorini is surrounded by women angling to share the luxurious life his wealth will buy.

Eccentric, colorful tomboy Lexie Grayson encounters a hot guy in a hotter classic car broken down on the side of the road, and an afternoon as his mechanic leads to a scorching night with a man she knows only as Nikos - but when dawn arrives, he's vanished, never to be seen again.

She buries her heartache in her new job, staging an extravaganza launch for a video game that will give her a chance to snoop around for clues that the company is responsible for stealing from her best friend. But when she meets her new employer....

He's an ice-cold version of that magical night's unforgettable lover.

What kind of man did she fall for on that incredible night? Does he know his company has stolen from her best friend? Why does he act as if they've never met? Was the magic they shared only a lie?

He's as shocked as she is. Was the fairy sprite who touched his heart an illusion as false as the ones she is creating for his gala? Worse, could the woman he can't forget be behind the leak that's endangering his company's survival?  

What is truth, and who is real... and is love a luxury neither can afford?

great book

This one was probably one of my favorites of the series. I loved the suspense throughout the book. The chemistry was off the charts. Eric G. Dove is one of the best narrator's I have listened to. Overall I loved this book and the series.

Dominic & Lexie

Dominic and Lexie meet when they are both away from their work-selves. The night is one of magic and a connection they never thought they would ever find. Their second meeting is less than idyllic and they both jump to conclusions about the other. Neither takes the time to talk to the other about the confusion and assumptions. The last few chapters were great. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book/ audio.

Mystery and Suspense

This was a good story in its own right. If you are looking for the same feel you get with a Sweetgrass Springs story, you will not find it here. Jackson Gallagher, Scarlett, and Spike are mentioned, but that is pretty much the extent of the Sweetgrass connection.

That being said, this was a romance novel about computer espionage, loyalty vs. disloyalty, honesty vs. dishonesty, love, friendship, and vulnerability.

The last couple of chapters were somewhat exciting and suspenseful. The narration was ok. There wasn't quite the same energy that I have picked up on other Sweetgrass books, but that may have been because this book had a different energy than the others. I still found the narrator was able to take me to the dome, the mansion, the gala, etc. with no problem.

I voluntarily listened to and reviewed this book.

A favorite of this series.

Jean Brashear is a wonderful author. I have read several of her books. I really enjoyed this book/audio book. It's one of my favorites of this series. Loved the characters and storyline. Especially since it wasn't so dependant on knowing the rest of the series to feel a part of the book. My heart just squeezed with emotion. Wonderfully written.

Eric Dove was an excellent narrator! He did a great job with both male and female voices. A rare treat. Look forward to hearing him more.

Just Marvelous!

I love it when I am totally captivated by a book right from the beginning to the very end. Jean Brashear, once again, has given readers a wonderful romance with such skill and finesse that it is difficult to put this one down until the end. Dominic “Nikos” Santorini and Lexie Grayson’s story is full of intrigue and romance. Their meeting is so sweet, however it is far more complicated than either of them realizes. I absolutely loved this story and highly recommend this one! Eric Dove never disappoints with his marvelous narration.
