THE MAN WITH THE MONEY
THE MAN WITH THE MONEY is Harlequin Presents, new series BAD BLOOD. There are altogether eight volumes in this series which track the lives of a powerful dynasty, where secrets and scandal never sleep, The Notorious Wolfes.
THE MAN WITH THE MONEY is one brother's story by the fabulous author Lynn Raye Harris.
International jet-setter Jack Wolfe comes across Cara Taylor while she is dealing cards in a French casino. Unaware that he is being set up at the game where the stake runs in millions, he let his attention draw toward Cara, as he finds her alluring.
Though in need of the bonus promised her, Cara, when it came to the crunch, couldn't compromise her integrity. And faces the brunt of her boss's anger. Jack comes in to save her and for his troubles get a black eye and broken ribs.
Now unable to leave him, Cara takes him away from the clutches of her boss and his thugs. She is surprised when the card sharp Jack asks her to his brother's wedding. He promises to pay her to go as his date.
After the high emotions of facing his family members, Cara challenges Jack to a game of cards to get him out of brooding.
And the stake? Clothes, of course! So they start the game of strip poker, they know the outcome and we the readers know the outcome yet the sexual tension crackles through the pages! The author did full justice to this scene.
The sensuality in the love-making is breathtaking. Jack decides to keep Cara close to him but not close to his heart as Cara yearns to be. He had powerful secrets he could not share with her yet.
Can Jack forget his tumultuous childhood and let Cara in his heart?
And letting passionate Cara close to him would ignite the spark which could melt his ruthless heart. Can he do that?
The author has delivered a tortured hero, who doesn't believe in love, a strong feisty heroine, who wouldn't settle for less, a very believable plot and romance that would enthrall readers and woven a tale that would captivate and mesmerize.
I would definitely like to read the other stories in this series as the Wolfe Dynasty turned out to be so interesting with hidden pasts and skeletons in their closets!
Lynn Raye Harris has written a spellbinding tale of powerful secrets, new beginnings, redemption and hope that will make readers chuckle as well as wipe away a tear or two. A compelling story about letting go of the past and seizing the day, it is fast-paced and sparkles with red-hot sensuality, mesmerizing emotion and intense passion.
THE MAN WITH THE MONEY is another first-rate story by Lynn Raye Harris!
