Follow the money…into bed!
Estranged from his adoptive father, Sage Lassiter earned his own billions. But when J.D. Lassiter leaves a fortune to his private nurse in his will and cheats his own daughter of her rightful inheritance…Sage is enraged, to say the least. He's sure nurse Colleen Falkner isn't the innocent she appears. And he's willing to go to any lengths to expose her…even seduction.
But using sex—crazed, incredible sex—to find out what she knows could backfire. Because Colleen is not what Sage expected. And like it or not, she's about to demolish all the barriers he's carefully constructed around his heart.
The first book in the Dynasties: The Lassiters series definitely doesn't disappoint. Although there were a few things I thought could have been better, I really enjoyed this story & finished it quickly. I don't think I've ever read anything by Maureen Child that I didn't like. She knows how to tell a good story & this one is no exception! It exposed you to the family yet left you wanting, which is the perfect way to start a series. I wish that I had realized that Beauty & the Best Man was a prequel to the series because I would have read it first, but I do still plan on reading it soon!
The main characters of this book, Sage & Colleen, are both so different. Colleen knows a lot about Sage, since she was his father's nurse but Sage seems to have some serious misconceptions about her, especially in the beginning. The relationship that develops between the two of them happens very quickly, due to the fact that they can't seem to fight their growing attraction to each other! I can't wait to read more about the Lassiter family!
