Ally Blake's FALLING FOR THE REBEL HEIR is a wonderful romance of opposites. War-Zone correspondent photographer meets quiet, book-loving heroine who craves security. Trespassing, physical attraction and pursuit are one thing, but can they also find true love?
Kendall York doesn't like risks, not after a car accident took away her fiance and her light step. Seeing her external scars, feeling her internal scars, Kendall is afraid to truly live. Hudson Bennington III, prep school achiever and famous war-zone correspondent catches a glimpse of what appears to him to be a mermaid when he comes home to his estate and pool to find Kendall has made herself quite at home. Not able to get her out of his mind, he makes her a proposal -- to help him type his memoirs. In such close proximity, will their hearts find a home in each other? Have Kendall and Hud found the one person that can release them from the nightmares of their past or are their ambitions and dreams just too far apart?
FALLING FOR THE REBEL HEIR starts off with a bang as the hero catches the heroine trespassing on his property. An initial attraction leads to love as the author opens layer and layer of the richness of her characters. Each encounter between the hero and heroine shed those things which separate them, mainly class differences, careers, and even personality labels. Visual meets verbal as a photographer encounters a literary, Shakespeare-quoting heroine. Both Kendall and Hud find liberation from the scars of the past in sharing, but when ambition and Hud's job come into play, will Hud choose his job or love?

Ally Blake hits the jackpot again. This was such an intelligently written, charming book with an entirely believable hero (I worked as a war correspondent so know the type) and a heroin who knows her Shakespeare. Loved the Henry V references. A clever subtle tug at the heart strings.
Typical of its genre, this novel depicts gorgeous world-weary, wounded photographer meets wounded, gorgeous girl with a tragic past! Set in Australia, this story shows the heir to a mansion who returns after 10 years abroad dodging bullets in foreign countries. What can I say? A pleasant read in romantic fantasy land, well written for its genre with lovely imagery, where the protagonists suffer agonies in turning their lives around.
Pleasant characters and the ending is perfect - of course!
