I love interracial/multicultural romances, and I was first drawn to this story because of the Japanese hero, Mori. I loved him! He is all that I love in a hero. Mori is so intense with those piercing dark eyes, that inscrutable look he gives the herione Helen, as if he's trying to figure her out. I love it when you can feel the hero's gaze. The sexual tension is great and so sexy. It's not over the top, but it is seductive in its gentle progression, as both characters try to understand and to resist what's happening between them.

Mori is 47, Helen is 41, and both are widowed. They each catch the other off guard, both being not what the other is used to and not normally attracted to. Given this merging of Helen's family business with Mori's corporation, their desire for the other is problematic, due to family and cultural expectations. As Helen and Mori work this out, finding their way to each other, you want them to succeed, to have it all.

This is a lovely story with a wonderful Japanese influence. Most of the story takes place in Tokyo, and the city and culture are characters themselves. All the characters, the plot, the setting, the emotions, all of it is beautifully drawn in words and action, one scene just moving into the next, with no unnecessary action or feeling to be found. Even with a small romance book like this, the author created a well-thought out, romantic and touching story.

If you want a hot Japanese hero who is a real modern-day warrior, and if you want a heroine who is gentle yet strong, you will enjoy this story in every way.

Mergers & Matrimony by Allison Leigh
Silhouette Special Edition # 1761 - June 2006
Family Business - Book # 6

Helen's not a stupid woman but she can't help feeling that way when she finds out that her deceased husband had viewed her as a trophy wife. This certainly explained the dismissive attitude of her stepsons. At the reading of the will, Helen is given controlling interest in Hanson Media, and she's determined to return the company back to its glory. The merger with Japanese media giant TAKA Corp. is the perfect solution. But when Mori Taka begins to take interest in Helen as a woman, the TAKA executives and Helen's stepsons wonder if Helen is on the make for another very rich husband.

I found this to be very well written. I loved learning a bit about Japanese culture. Ms. Leigh gave great depth to Helen's character. Helen grows stronger as the story enfolds. At first she's disillusioned and hurt, but then she picks herself up and moves on, proving to all around her that she's not just a beautiful blond. Mori, though a man of the world, holds close to traditional Japanese culture. Helen is at first a curiosity and then she becomes a compulsion. He admires her courage and finds her intellect a challenge. Ms. Leigh has written a very touching love story.

I adored this book! The Japanese hero was beautifully done, the heroine and supporting characters excellent as well, and the setting and story quite wonderful. Of course it did happen to feed into my personal fantasies, but isn't that what romance is all about? Well written, sweetly sexy, and charming.
