Six weeks ago a car accident left Xander Sterne with a broken leg and, much to his annoyance, the need for live-in assistance. But to Xander’s surprise, help arrives in the exquisitely tempting shape of Samantha Smith. A broken leg won’t be an obstacle for this legendary lothario! With her boss launching a flirtatious—and persistent!—assault on Sam’s every attempt to remain professional and unmoved by his skilled seduction, she starts to wonder just how long it will be before he convinces her to join him in redefining the meaning of “personal assistant…”

    “Good Reading”

    I really enjoyed this book. It was book two in the “Twin Tycoons” series, the previous one–“The Redemption of Darius Sterne” was Darius’s story. Darius was the dark, moody twin brother, Xander, the blond, easy-going playboy, who had some troubles of his own–he was worried that he may become like his abusive father. But after being around Sam and her daughter, he realized he had no reason to worry. I liked Sam. She was a single mother, recently divorced from her jerk ex-husband Malcolm, who never wanted Daisy. Sam really loved her daughter and would do anything to protect her. Daisy was such a cutie. I really found her adorable. I liked, at the beginning, when she knocked big Xander over when she rushed through the room. And, later on in the book, she told her loser father a thing or two! It was sweet seeing Daisy and Xander together. Sam and Xander made a good couple, they both had some pain/abuse in their past. I also liked the cute epilogue. This was another enjoyable read by Carole Mortimer.

    Six weeks ago a car accident left Xander Sterne with a broken leg and to his disgust also the need for live in assistance. But to his surprise help arrives looking like he never expected. Exquisitely tempting Samantha Smith, is Xander’s dream come true, well if you count the bed ” em and leave ’em dream that is, broken leg or not he will have her!With her boss launching a flirtatious and very persistent assault on her senses , Samantha has to push really hard to try and stay professional and unmoved by Xander’s skillful seduction. But then she starts to wonder just how long it will be before he convinces her to join him in refining the meaning of personal assistant. If you are ever in need of a warm, sensual, blissful romance read, this one is perfect! The chemistry between Xander and Samantha really was all things sugar and just a little bit of spice. Both characters had a really great mystery feel about them, making it one of those couples you immediately want to dig out from the sand and start dusting off the layers to reveal just exactly what his hidden, and trust me the layers the author wove around these characters were sensational! And Xander, oh my delicious, mysterious, smoldering hotter than hot Xander , what a man! He comes off as a really nice guy, and seems very open but in actual fact is quite dark , dark to the point were he started to at one stage worry me just a little, but in true Carole Mortimer fashion she brought the real Xander out and it was simply spectacular ! Samantha was a really great heroine, smart, funny and she had just enough feistyness to make me like her, not too much to be a total ” I want to get rid of this heroine, as in kill her off!” and not too little to make me want to shout ” Get some courage girl!” , just perfectly done Carole! I am taking away a message of when people are really in your corner, the biggest mistake you can make is to assume they are doing it simply because they feel sorry for you, communication is the only way you will ever be sure, so push for that answer , yes it could very well be not what you want to hear, but at least you will then know. And most importantly don’t let the most important person in your life walk out the door, once they are gone you might not be able to get them to come back. I recommend this read for all fans of sweet and sensual reads filled with that special Carole Mortimer magic!

    I absolutely loved this second installment of The Sterne Brothers. Xander and Samantha’s story was warm,sexy and heartfelt. Carole Mortimer is one of my favourite authors. I think I must have most of her books on my ‘keeper shelf’. Only last week I once again read a trio of books by her entitled ‘Bachelor Sisters’ which was all about siblings Harry, Dani and Andy and the gorgeous, hunky men in their lives. This trio was were first published in 2001. Wonderful….. just keep those amazing stories coming Ms Mortimer. Bless.

    Carole Mortimer knows exactly how to attract the readers who are fans of the Modern Genre.There is the perfect mix of repartee, love explicitly and implicitly revealed by the two brothers and in this second story by Xander towards the lovable Samantha which ends on a happy note as true fantasy should!Excellent Carole Mortimer.
