Description

Somebody is out to destroy Elle Simpson and everything in her life. Elle has always depended on family to make her business run strong, but long work hours have left her without much of a private life. Just as Elle thinks she has met the potential man of her dreams, she also discovers an imposter determined to destroy her business and life. Can she trust this "Prince Charming" to help her defend everything she holds dear, or will she only leave herself vulnerable at the worst possible time?

Drake Charles’s work in the fast-growing mobile technology field made him a wealthy, powerful man. But he quickly sheds the fame and publicity for a more private life that earns him the label as a man of mystery. Drake adds to that mystery every year when he hosts a masquerade ball for charity. It’s also his best chance to find the one thing he really wants . . . true love.

Having met behind masks of anonymity, Elle and Drake enjoy a whirlwind night of romance that leaves them both wanting more. Elle's heart tells her to trust Drake, but years of fighting off business foes has taught her that anyone could be a potential threat. Will this new romance give them both a fairy tale ending, or spiral into a nightmare for the whole Simpson family?

  • Cute story

    It was entertaining but it was too fast. Characters and situations require a little more time to develop. The first sexual encounter was unbelievable, it makes a woman CEO look cheap and a typical bimbo to have sex with a stranger in a masquerade party. Professional woman don't risk their position like a red hot male in heat. More time invested in planning the take over would have been a great read. The ex boyfriend should have not been successful a second time. Taking over Titan was incredibly naive. This is like a make believe fairy story written for non experienced women looking for a romantic harlequin book. Author should have taken the opportunity to write a more interesting book. Will not read others. Free books are supposed to be so good to make readers want to read more.

    I couldn't put it down finished it in one night. The chemistry between Drake and Elle you could feel and as if you were in the room. Every time the author wrote Elle and her sisters enjoying ice cream, I wanted some too. Only thing it just end no finish,

    **spoilers** I say tried because I couldn't even finish reading the whole thing. I have never written a review before and I was so upset that I decided for this to be my first one, to warn people. First of all I have to admit, I loved the idea of the masquerade ball, the personalities of the characters and their personal stories. But then you get to the part where he finds her after she left her phone and everything goes south!!!! You mean to tell me two families come together and act as if they already are one big happy family?! And worse, the two main characters are in love already?! They've known each other one day for gods sake. I understand these novels are fiction and honestly, women like me read them to have some fairy tale butterflies in our lives but at the same time we look for books that are realistic.

    I loved it!! It had the fairy tale romance with a wonderful plot! I fell in love with the characters. If you like romance with a side of green chilies then this is the book for you! (Pls it was so good that I, who have never reviewed a iBook before, was compelled to discuss my love for it💗)

    The book was perfect and beautifully written. I couldn't help but imagine a love as perfect as Elle and Drake. Also the love and success of her family. Just perfect.

    I don't normally have my nose in a book, but I did with this one. Author developed characters well and gave you that feeling of being in the family, as well as wanting to follow each member's individual story.
