[Siren Classic: Erotic Contemporary Romance]
Self-made millionaire Holly Charleston has come a long way since her homeless days. Sometimes, she believes life would have been simpler before fortune and fame. With every man she meets imagining dollar signs, she yearns for the one man who sees the real Holly. A mysterious wealthy stranger may be the one, but she must control her sexsomnia and trust issues if she hopes for a real chance at love.
Professional thief Drake Davenport is ready to begin an honest life. However, his last assignment leads him to steal the heart diamond necklace from a woman known as Ms. Frost. But Holly guards her heart close and her assets closer. Once Holly thaws to Drake's seduction attempts, he finds himself in a position of protecting her from a hired mercenary or living the life he believes he earned. Drake realizes the challenge of stealing the diamond is nothing compared to the challenge of stealing Holly's heart.
A Siren Erotic Romance


We kick off the story with a hen's lunch date. Four friends meet every Wednesday to gossip and exchange news. Holly's friends are glad that she's gone from skid row to fabulous wealth. They just wish she had Mr Right in her busy life. Forget Mr. Right! They'd be happy with Mr. Right Now! Holly is very career minded and suspicious of most men's motives. She always assumes they want something from her, but she's holding out for a man who will want just her. In her situation, sorting the con artists from the real thing is a tough gig.

Enter Drake Davenport. He has problems of his own. Like Holly, he comes from a very poor background. The jet-set lifestyle has worn him down and early retirement is looking really good. The difference is his job is part of an international jewelry ring, and Holly is his last assignment! Unfortunately for him, she's not the easy mark he's use to, and the first thing stolen is his heart.

This was a great adventure in a short span of words. The total length came in at 26,986, making this a great quick read. The shorter length was a bonus for the holidays. It was easy to fit in between all the cooking and crowds. Our hero was hot, and the sex was hotter. I enjoyed the ending and even found myself saying, "I can't believe she did that!" The twists and turns are interesting. I found this to be a full 4.5 star read!
