Book Description

Owner of La Bella Vita, a five-star day spa nestled in the affluent suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee, Beth Sergeant knows her elite clientele firsthand. She attended their private schools. She was even engaged, although briefly, to one of their most recognized bachelors. But she never fit in to their social-elite world.

After losing his parents to a car accident at a young age, Nick Chester was raised by his grandfather, the wealthiest man in Nashville. When he chooses to socialize, he has a never-ending list of exclusive events and beautiful women vying for his attention. Yet he never lets himself forget that everyone has an agenda.

Beth can't resist Nick's charm and accepts an invitation to dinner, despite her deep-seated insecurities. She proves she's nothing like other women Nick's dated and learns to trust him in return. But just as the last of their resistance crumbles and true love is within reach, challenges from Nick's past threaten to destroy everything and force Beth to reveal her most guarded secret.

4.0 out of 5 stars Predictable but loved it ... December 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
There are many different themes to this book that won't surprise you. In fact, you'll be able to guess what some of the characters are going to do next - especially when Nick and Beth start getting close. But the build-up for each character and the pacing of how the story develops is so, so well-written you'll be drooling for what happens next.

If you need comparisons, think Danielle Steele or Jackie Collins. Beth is the ever-strong but slightly vulnerable while Nick appears to hide his flaws, until his past starts catching up with him. So, can love at first sight conquer all or is it the first layer to a nightmare that will reinforce your cynical side to all things 'love'? You'll just have to read the book to find out.

Would I recommend this read? Oh yes, definitely.

Overall assessment:
Content: 4.5/5
Editing: 4.5/5
Formatting: 4.5/5
Pacing: 4.5/5
Offensive content?: Mature readers or at least 17+

4.0 out of 5 stars Winter's Magic January 7, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This was an enjoyable book. Beth is a smart business woman who owns and manages an amazing spa. She meets Nick when he comes in to a spa package and there is an instant attraction. While Beth grew up with the elite, she was never really a part of that circle since her family wasn't as wealthy as most. Nick on the other hand is from an exceptionally wealthy family and could have his choice of women. Will their two worlds find a way to exist together?
I did like the instant attraction in this book. It was there, you could feel it and their bantering was great to read. Beth was a complex character who has issues both past and present that affect the way she sees the world. Nick is strong and wants to do things on his own but is also kind and private. They are a great couple. The 'issues' that try to tear them apart are understandable and even unsurprising, but the story all in all was good.
I rate this a 4/5. It was a good quick romance read.

Thank you to PumpUpYourBooks for the review copy of this book. I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming Story! January 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
What a wonderful holiday romance! I am glad that I read this.

The plot had romance galore, a few bumps in the road to the HEA, a girl and guy that you can't help but want to get together, and of course, some Christmas spirit! :D

I would gladly recommend this book to all romance readers, especially those looking for a holiday read.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I honestly loved it. I didn't put it down until I was finished.

I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series. :D

3.0 out of 5 stars Marti' s review November 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Typical romance, girl with history of bad relationships meets the man of her dreams, but he was just involved with her former "school enemy" and now she turns up pregnant. Complicating things she had a hysterectomy and now she can't have children, so she is noble and releases him to take care of the mother of his "child". No huge surprises but the relationship does develops the way you hope to with a happy ending. An OK read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy and romantic read! June 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Beth and Nick are immediately attracted to one another and the author, Cynthia, keeps you intrigued on how its all going to play out by the way she weaves the storyline. There's a lot of sizzle as well as heart in this romance. The characters are strong, yet tender, and the story leaves you with a warm, magical feeling knowing that romance still lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed it June 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great story. I really enjoyed it. The hero is the heir to the Chester family that owns the town and most of the money. He is a good guy, just every female is after him for the wrong reasons. she was raised in a wealthy family but instead of planning to live off her Dad's money, she gets her degree, opens a business and is very successful and independent. However, owning a spa puts her in the "service" class and this creates some problems for some of her rich friends.

They meet and he is smitten. She doesn't feel she is in his league so she is very cautious. This is their story. What I liked most about this book was the strength and smarts of the heroine. A couple of times she was in situations where the heroine usually storms out and never gives the hero a chance to explain something that just happened that was completely out of his control. She TRUST him so she knows NOTHING really went on. That was refreshing.

It is a good romantic story with a hero that you wish you could have met first!!! I highly recommend it and know you will enjoy it as well. Good read

I didn't want it to end. The interplay between the main characters, the added drama both infused with their life situations made for a great story.

More About the Author

My husband and I live in the suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee with our eighteen-year-old son and three dogs. When I'm not working or writing, I can be found with family and friends. I love to bake in the winter, grill in the summer, and on occasion, I sneak away from everyone and curl up with a good book.
