Unlikely Love, 1
Wayne Brown is ruthless when it comes to business, and with a nickname of "The Beast", no one dares to challenge him. What he wants he gets.
Lily Jones is sweet innocence and despises men like Wayne. But the Jones family is desperate, and he offers them a solution to their problems. Only he wants something in return...Lily. She either marries him or her family answers to the debt collectors. With no choice left, she agrees and begins life as his wife.
Through his seduction and touch, Lily's body betrays her, and as time passes, so does her heart. But how can she fall in love with a man who blackmails to get what he wants?
Be Warned: forced seduction
Wayne never disputed his nickname 'The Beast'. He knew what he wanted and would do whatever was necessary to get it. He wanted Lily. Lily's life was difficult at best, but she kept trying to improve it. Her ungrateful family was in financial straits and Wayne would help on one condition - that Lily marry him. Innocent and unsure, Lily wasn't sure what Wayne wanted, but she was about to find out.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book. What I found was a delightful, sexy read. Wayne is a complicated man and if we weren't privy to his thoughts, he would have come off as a domineering jerk. I enjoyed the shifting perspectives and I loved Lily with her quiet strength. This is a very steamy story, and Wayne and Lily's chemistry is sizzling. I highly recommend this updated fairytale and can't wait to read the next in the series.
