Winter Nobleman is complicated. To say the least.
It was supposed to be simple. Go to Paris, find a client’s daughter, and close a multi-million-dollar deal. Easy. Then I meet her. Stormy blue eyes, quick wit, and the secrets she keeps on the tip of her tongue make me forget my mission for a moment, or six, and why I’m in Paris in the first place—to bring her home.
Distracted by her beauty, I fail to notice the others lurking with missions of their own.
Bennett Everest is the twist I never saw coming. Talk about perfect timing.
He steals my breath the first time I see him and breathes hope back into my heart. He’s a giant in my eyes, a king among men with patience and love to share in spades. Six foot three. Whiskey-colored eyes. Solid gold on the inside.
Despite the dirty deeds of my past, he sees the person I am meant to be and not the person I have become.
If the lies don’t kill us, will the truth set us free?

Bennett Everest has a job to do. But working with family can be challenging at times. Winter Nobleman just wants a little recognition from someone important to her. It’s too bad that they seem to be blind when it comes to her.
This book doesn’t say it is part of a series but as you get to know Bennett’s brothers you’ll wonder what their story could be about. If you read to the end of this book, the author will give you the titles you will need. Good for me, I’ve already read Hutton’s story. Bad for me is that I still need to read Ethan’s. A good issue for me is whether I want to read or listen to it – or maybe even both. Make no mistake; you don’t have to read the brother’s books first, as with the other books, this can be considered a standalone.
Even though the Everest brothers seem central to what’s going on, Winter doesn’t let you forget that she’s also a part of what’s going on. She takes us to Paris and had me wanting to sit in an outdoor café sipping an espresso while rereading her story. Good news for me is that I don’t have to get in an airplane to travel to a café when not too far from me is a place called, oddly enough, Paris Café – I just hope they don’t have a limit as far as how long I can stay. It’s hard to put the book down once I pick it up.
One thing I was certain of, almost from the beginning, is that Bennett was going to be good for Winter. He is a man who is confident but she throws him off just a little bit. I loved their walks and when all they did was talk to each other – loved their easygoing banter. The mystery and suspense was all the incentive I needed to keep turning the page. And a romantic ending left me smiling and looking forward to her next book.
