A tale of a life-time of hurt and fear, as well as the struggles of single parenthood and the joy that comes from a special bond between a mother and her son as they combat those struggles together. And lets not forget the joys and hurts from falling in love, especially when there appears to be more misunderstandings than not.
Jade has just started a new job as PA to Mr. Bilton, a job that she desperately needs if she wants to continue to help her brother and his family cope with their extensive medical bills as their infant son, her nephew, requires a heart operation and special care. He’s sent her on what he’s deemed, an extremely important errand…to deliver a letter to one Lucas Renner. If she only knew just how much her life was about to change. Lucas is late for what he thinks is an interview. When the lovely Jade clarifies the meeting’s purpose, he feels betrayed. But there’s something about Jade that won’t let him be rude, nor, it would appear, can he say no to her, so when she has him read a letter, of which she claims to know nothing about, and give her his response, he feels like he has no choice. And when he later finds himself bumping into her at different times, he begins to question his motives. Will he be willing to open his heart and let her in? Will his heart even give him a choice?
A wonderful tale of love and how it will conquer all if we let it. Well written with a flow that is easy to follow and fall into, you won’t want to put it down once you begin.
The Unyielding Bachelor
OMG! If it got any hotter, the pages would explode and burn to ashes! Wow! Another heated story that will not only grab your attention from page one to the end, but will have you burning up as the flames of love mingle with the fingers of jealousy, hurt, suspicion and danger. Rick, the second of the confirmed bachelors to find his way possibly off of the “available” list, he fights not only his attraction to the beautiful Lexie, but the suspect attitude of his step mother and her malicious contract she had him sign years ago in order to protect his younger sister. Lexie has been in love with Rick forever, and has decided it’s time she does something about it. The only problem would be that it seems Rick isn’t “into” her like she is to him. But things change in the space of a second! Will she ever get her chance to truly love him like she needs? Or will he continue his playboy ways?
A beautiful story that will warm your heart, even after it has it pumping with the suspense and action, and anticipation.
The Undercover Playboy
OMG! Who could have ever imagined how this story would end, let alone how it began? Disgruntled Cassie has been looking for a new job for what seems like forever, so when the “opportunity of a lifetime” fell in her lap, she grabbed it like her life depended on it. When she decided she needed to celebrate her windfall, she also decided it was time to reach for something else she desperately wanted…or who that is. When Carter is propositioned by Cassie, he’s gobsmacked, so to speak, unable to form a word, never mind make a decision. But when his heart slows down enough for his brain to catch up, he knows he could never let her find another. He had to have her himself. But when he finds out just where it is that her new job is, he knows he needs to do everything in his power to keep her safe.
Complete with betrayal of all kinds, hot and steamy sex, and a love that is bound to weather everything that stumbles in its’ way, this book will have you on the edge of your seat, with most likely, a tear or two, as the next sworn bachelor takes his fall. Awesome read that will leave you with the question of: who will be the next of the group to take the plunge?
Book 2: Unyielding Bachelor (Rick and Lexie) - I liked this book a lot more than the first. Better plot, more action and deeper characterizations. The twists and turns keep you reading this book until the end.
Book 3: Undercover Playboy (Carter and Cassie) - This is another one I liked. You got to know these characters better and you get a good look at undercover police. But enough is enough with the sex scenes … they are all the same from one book to another. You would think that some billionaires could get more creative.
Every couple from Lucas & Jade, Rick & Lexie, and Carter & Cassie were all so enjoyable to read about. It might havce taken the men a bit longer to relize what they wanted, but when they did....they went after it full force.
I urge everyone to give this box set a try. You really can't go wrong, since this set is offered for free right now.
I started the second book, don’t know why. I lasted through a couple chapters but the storyline was so unbelievable I quit. I don’t plan on finishing this series or reading this author again.

The Unwilling Executive - Lucas is the unwanted bastard son of Thomas, the owner of a very successful company. Jade is Thomas’s new PA, who meets Lucas when she has to deliver a message from her boss. Unfortunately Lucas wants nothing to do with his biological father, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to get to know Jade. Thankfully Jade is not only a regular customer at his mother’s florist, but a friend. What happens when the infamous playboy falls for the shy & sweet PA?
The Unyielding Batchelor - Lexie believes Rick could be the “one”, but despite all her flirting, she’s thinking of moving on & dating other guys. After all, there’s only so much rejection a girl can take! Rick is devastated when he learns their friends are setting Lexie up with other men, especially after she’s made it quite obvious she fancies him. However, his hands are tied by a legal contract he made with his stepmother to keep her hands off his stepsister’s inheritance & his company. Unless he can persuade Betty to forget the contract, he can only have casual flings for the next 6yrs! With things hotting up between him & Lexie, can they keep their relationship hidden, especially as Rick has to keep up his playboy image in public or will Lexie’s jealousy drive them apart? When things take a sinister turn, Rick has to find a solution to keep his step sister & the girl of his dreams safe.
The Undercover Playboy - Fed up with a boss that doesn’t appreciate her work, Cassie is ecstatic when she’s hired by a relatively new firm, especially as she gets on with the boss, Bronwyn. She also decides to proposition her flatmate’s brother for a one night stand. She knows she has no chance with the hunk, who has a playboy reputation, but she’s hoping that sleeping with him will scratch the itch that she has for him. Carter can’t believe Cassie’s proposal: he’s sweet on her, & if it wasn’t for his job as an undercover cop, he’d start “something” with her. His latest job has him working in the same building as Cassie, but his real job requires him to flirt with Susan, one of her colleagues, who is a suspect. Worried Cassie could be a target, Carter refuses to tell Cassie he’s really an undercover cop & not the electrician she thinks he is. Their one-night-stand becomes something more, but they try to keep it a secret. However, their smouldering looks may betray them.
As this series seems to be about a group of friends, these books must be read in the correct order. I liked how previous characters pop up in latter books, & although some parts are predictable, I definitely did not work out who the villain was in book 3! Hopefully the author will release a cleaner version of this series as I would like to find out more about the group. I noticed, at the end of the book, that there is a prequel series “Time For Love” that features the Carmichael brothers.
Enjoyable read. The eternal bachelor (one night stands the norm) falls for his much hated biological father's PA and finds that with one woman everything is changed.
The Unyielding Bachelor 5*
Hunky Rick had got himself into an impossible position with his stepmother, which wouldn't have mattered if he hadn't started to develop strong feelings for Lexie. Feelings that only deepened as time went by. I loved the relationship between the two of them and I never saw the dangerous twist coming.
The Undercover Playboy 4*
Cassie has been crushing and dreaming on Carter (her flatmate's brother) for months but Carter doesn't do relationships, he's a playboy (or so she thinks) and anyway her life is too busy at the moment but perhaps a one-night stand to get him out of her system? Relationships are difficult when you're an undercover cop, you have to be careful who you tell the truth to; you have to worry about your cover being blown and also whether it could put people you care for in danger. When his latest investigation is where Cassie works he can't tell her the truth as it might effect how she reacts with her boss and colleagues. He should stay away from her but when she hits on him, he just cannot resist her. Good characters with an unseen twist to the plot. Note: Strong language.
This book contains three full length stories, all with a HEA. What is also good, is the use of different plots for each tale. None of that money for old rope nonsense.
The stories are all set around a bachelor betting game where people select the next single man who will fall in love.
Be warned, there are some cheesy moments in the book which made me do my customary eye roll, especially in the first story.
Enjoy peeps 😉
