Book Description

Millionaire Kane Dennison's first mistake had been carrying an injured Willow Nelson inside his home, which, as a rule, was off-limits. Of course, she'd needed his help, but his one kind gesture had her believing he was a nice man. He wasn't.

His second mistake had been surrendering to passion after warning Willow to run away. Because a woman like her deserved better than a one-night stand. She believed in soul mates. He trusted no one—needed no one. And not even Willow was going to change him!

Look for Susan Mallery's new Fool's Gold trilogy, starting in June with Just One Kiss from Harlequin HQN! And don't miss the series prequel novella, Halfway There, coming in May 2013!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can Willow Change Kane? December 6, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ms Mallery has created a wonderful love for the middle Nelson sister, Willow. Willow isn't interested in her grandmother's million dollars for wedding Todd Aston the 3rd but she does want to give "that slimy, no-good weasel" a piece of her mind for his treatment of her sister Julie who is going to marry Todd's cousin Ryan. All is well now but Willow is still upset about it.

Willow's at the wrong house and has a little run-in with the head of Todd's security, Kane Dennison. Willow runs out in the garden and falls so Kane carries her back in the house. Kane's not ready for Willow's kind and happy ways but she's ready to take care of Kane.

Willow has always found the men that need to be rescued but they didn't treat her well afterward either. So she's not sure what to do with Kane he warns her that he doesn't need to be rescue and he doesn't need anyone else either. She disregards him and makes herself at home with him. The passion was so good between them too Kane is overwhelmed by his feelings. Such a wounded hero!

The 2nd of The Million Dollar Catch heroes is so wounded you have to fall in love with him and our heroine is so fun she goes right under Kane's radar, he falls in love with her too! Great books - 11/06 THE SUBSTITUE MILLIONAIRE SD#1760 Julie & Ryan's books, this one and in 1/07 THE ULTIMATE MILLIONAIRE Todd and Marina's story I can hardly wait for it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly Charming March 6, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
More charming than I expected. It had a shaky start, with the charming ditzy heroine appearing slightly manic and insane, but she calmed down and the hero warmed up and a very pleasant 2 hours passed. Forgetable but fun while you're reading it.

3.0 out of 5 stars My First Mallery, Poorly Narrated December 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Content: A few explicit sex scenes. No violence. Minimal or no swearing. No children. No evangelizing. Cute animals.

This is the first Mallery I have read (listened to). Is this her typical style? If so, I won't jump on the Mallery fan bus, but I may try another one some day, for a sweet and short read. No plot, other than the developing relationship. Nothing to hold my interest except wondering how much Kane was gonna hurt Willow, and what the HEA would look like. No suspense. No problem to solve. No rising action and gathering climax (except of the sexual sort).

But it was sweet, and sometimes funny, and I liked the kittens. So, not a total loss. Glad Kane told off Willow's father. Good scene.

Part of my problem with the book is the narrator. Carr's rendition detracted from the story. Kane's voice never showed emotion, and Willow sounded like a ditzy airhead.

Of course, she WAS a ditz. You'd have to be TSTL to tangle with a stranger holding a gun on you. No matter how "safe" this gun-toting, good looking stranger made you feel. And WHY would you feel safe??

IMO, the sex came on MUCH too fast. Mallery didn't allow the sexual anticipation, frustration, and wanting to build, so I felt minimal sizzle.

I got tired of hearing about how Kane's girlfriend betrayed him so long ago. Did the author think we would forget such a shocker? I only needed to be told once. And I doubt Kane would think about the B so many times. It happened more than 12 years ago, and he's left her in the dust, become a millionaire, etc. So, the characterization of Kane was weak. He was one dimensional.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced fun read May 6, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book finally made it to the top of my TBR pile and I'm glad that it did! I've always enjoy reading Susan Mallery and this book was no exception. A fast paced, page turner with an unconventional heroine....who could ask for more? I highly recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 Down, 1 More To Go July 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this right after reading the The Substitute Millionaire, and I'm not disappointed. Willow's story is fresh, light and airy. I'm not that type, and I can see how people could get annoyed by her personality, but I couldn't help but love her and her uniqueness. In real life, people like Willow burrow into your life until they form such an integral part, that you don't want them to leave, and that's what happened to Kane. He wanted her out, but she was in so deep, he ended up wanting to keep her in his life forever. Susan Mallery, keep it up!

2.0 out of 5 stars the million dollar sprain April 1, 2007
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
ok the opening of the book is kinda dumb, what with willow running through the house and all. but when her and her sisters invade kane's house...that was a hoot. poor willow has always had fixer-upper men in her life and it looked like kane was more of the same. turns out he is, but not in the same way has her previous men and good thing too. good quick read. as with the other millionare series, read them for enjoyment, and put them in your give away pile for one of your friends to enjoy also.
