Author: Miranda Lee

Billionaire Bachelors

Author: Miranda Lee

Publisher: Mills & Boon (2007)

Billionaire Bachelors is an omnibus of three related Miranda Lee romances. A Rich Man's Revenge is the first of the Billionaire Bachelors series by Miranda Lee. Dominique Cooper was determined that her mother's fate, loving a man who was a drunk and soon jobless, would not befall her: she was going to marry for money. After one failed attempt, she had her sights set on Charles Brandon, only to be struck with love at first sight! Charles's friend Rico was sure she was a gold-digger, and was determined to warn him. This romance sounded like it was going to be full of shallow characters and a thin plot, but the plot took an unexpected turn, and, except for the very clichéd Rico, the characters were not too bad. It was a little melodramatic at the end, though. Mistress For A Month is the second of the Billionaire Bachelors series by Miranda Lee. Enrico Mandretti has been attracted to Renee Selinsky since the first time he saw her, even though he is convinced she married for money. She's now widowed, rich and still very attractive, and he sees her every Friday night at Prince Ali's poker night, along with his friend Charles Brandon. The way she treats him, he's sure she doesn't like him, but one night his poker hand is unbeatable and he manages to win Renee as his mistress for a month. Perhaps not as shallow as it first seems: Rico and Renee both show they have more depth of character than seems initially possible. The plot is a bit thin: this is not one of Miranda Lee's best romances. Sold to the Sheikh is the third of the Billionaire Bachelors series by Miranda Lee. The first time top model Charmaine encounters Ali, she has no trouble refusing him (rather rudely). He is amazed: women don't refuse His Royal Highness Prince Ali of Dubar. But Charmaine knows he is just another good-looking overly wealthy man who thinks he can have any female he sees. The second time she encounters him, 11 months later, she can hardly refuse: after all, she offered herself up as a dinner date prize in her own charity auction for children with cancer, and he has bid 5 million dollars for the privilege. At that dinner, he makes an even more outrageous offer, one she ultimately finds impossible to refuse. But just because she's attracted to him, doesn't mean she'll fall for him. But Ali's intentions are a little more permanent than she realises. This final instalment of Billionaire Bachelors has some clever dialogue and some hot sex scenes, although the plot is a bit weak. I think the ultra-rich hero is wearing a bit thin, getting a bit more difficult for the ordinary reader to relate to.

Black Sheep

Author: Georgette Heyer

Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca (2008)

Miss Abigail Wendover's efforts to detach her spirited niece Fanny from a plausible fortune-hunter are complicated by the arrival in Bath of Miles Calverleigh. The black sheep of his family, a cynical, outrageous care-for-nought with a scandalous past - that would be a connection more shocking even than Fanny's unwise liaison with his nephew! But Abby, adept at managing her sweet silly sister Selina, her lively niece, and the host of her admirers among Bath's circumscribed society, has less success in managing her own unruly heart.

Bound By The Marcolini Diamonds

Author: Melanie Milburne

Publisher: Mills & Boon (2009)

`You will be at my hotel with me,' he said. 'Is-is that such a good idea?' she said, her frown deepening, her heart stuttering in panic. `I mean ... will there be room for us?' The look in his eyes was inscrutable, but there was a hint: of amusement lurking around his mouth. `Molly can sleep in her pram and you can sleep in my bed.' Sabrina's eyes widened, her heart giving that annoying little extra beat again. `Are you by any chance going to be there too?' she asked, with an attempt at an arch look. `In my bed, do you mean?' She nodded, hastily disguising a nervous swallow. `Only if I am invited,' he said, with a sexy slant of his mouth.
