Taming the Last St. Claire - Carole Mortimer (The Scandalous St. Claires)
Honestly, they were as different as night and day. Both being attorney's who shared a history. He a twin and her sister married his oldest brother.. Now they were faced
with an impossible task to run the family business together in the absence of his brother and his bride while taking a well deserved honeymoon. Was it planned, I
think his brother Lucan realized they both could or could have an amazing chemistry between them and he secretly thought they might be a match. If not, they all missed their mark!
It s like watching a Kathryn Hepburn and Spencer Tracy Movie. The chemistry and the attraction plus the challenge. He was buttoned up and she was carefree and sexy and she drove him crazy and I was feeling so happy........good for her!
The description of The Scandalous St, Claire's says, "three arrogant aristocrats......ready to marry! However, I didn't get that feeling about Gideon St. Claire. In fact I think in the end, his brother purposely put him and the feisty Joey McKinley together on purpose. It didn't help the fact that they shared twin siblings who married into his family and at his brother's recent wedding she sang and had the voice of an angel. Honestly the writing was on the wall for Gideon and Joey, it was just a matter of time and the build up was well worth the wait!
As final book in the mini-series I don't want to give away too much but let's just say sexual tension, family dynamics and danger in the form of a stalker put them in an interesting situation. However, for Gideon the house comes tumbling down due to the intelligent, sexy and sassy Joey and he definitely met his match. But isn't life worth new beginnings without taking a chance and that's something they had to do, faith was s much a part of it.
What did I love about this book? The sensual tension, conflict, secrets and how Gideon had to get to the party of his life to trust and love Joey!
Gideon St. Claire's life revolves around work—just the way he likes it. He's master of his emotions, and the women he dates never get glimpses of his home life beyond the stairs leading to his bedroom….
Feisty and fun loving, with the annoying knack of knowing just how to wind Gideon up, Joey McKinley is the sort of woman he avoids. How does he handle such enthusiasm? But when an old enemy of Joey's starts looking for revenge, Gideon is forced to keep watch over her—day and night….
