Overview

Somebody is out to destroy Elle Simpson and everything she's worked hard to build. As the CEO of a corporate conglomerate, Elle is used to fighting off challengers. However, this new threat comes at a time when she finally lets her guard down to meet Prince Charming. And it's unlike anything she's been up against before.

Drake Charles's work on mobile technology has made him a wealthy, powerful man.
But he quickly sheds the fame and publicity for a more private life, which earns him the label as a man of mystery. Drake adds to that mystery every year when he hosts a masquerade ball for charity. It's also his best chance to find the one thing he really wants . . . true love.

Having met behind masks of anonymity, Elle and Drake enjoy a whirlwind night of romance that leaves them both wanting more. But Elle must question everything and everyone as she battles to save her life and career. Can Elle trust Drake to help get her life back or will she lose everything?

Editorial Reviews

Crazy Cajuns Book Addicts - Amanda Lanclos
Chosen for Power? I'd say more like Chosen for Greatness! 5 Stars from me!

I love Kathleen's writing style. I fell in love with the Rose Sisters in the Bluegrass Series. Chosen for Power only proves that Kathleen was “Chosen” to be an author.

Elle is such a strong character. I love how she is strong and independent and she handles things as a woman and not some caddy girl.

Then there is hunky sexy man Drake Charles, and man is he sexy.
LIfehouse Literature - Michelle Eriksen
Another Phenomenal Success for Kathleen Brooks!!

How do you follow an amazing series like the Bluegrass series? Well if you are Kathleen Brooks you start what promises to be another amazing series about Strong, Passionate, and Independent Women.

I loved this book, and I have a feeling that this will be another series that I’m waiting for the next book to come out each time.

    Disappointed

    Loved the Blue Grass series. This story started with a bang and then fizzled completely for me.

    Bree is a no-nonsense, take no prisoners, kick butt woman when it comes to her business,
    even when the deck seems to be stacked against her. She is in charge of building a huge project
    and the architect keeps making changes to the plans and causing delays.

    Logan is the architect who created the plans for Bree’s project. He comes from London to find out
    why the builder keeps asking for changes to his perfect plans; but he ends up saving Bree’s life
    before they are even introduced.

    Kathleen Brooks has done what she does best in Built for Power. The perfect mix of mystery, suspense
    and romance with some fun and laughter thrown in that makes her books the MUST READS that they are.

    Being a HUGE fan of Kathleen Brooks¿ ¿Bluegrass Series,¿ I was a

    Being a HUGE fan of Kathleen Brooks’ “Bluegrass Series,” I was a little sad that we were saying good-bye to all the wonderful people of Keeneston, especially our beloved Rose Sisters! But I should never doubt Kathleen’s ability to lure us into another wonderful series. Kathleen Brooks’ new Women of Power series is addictive to say the least, amazing, and certainly no disappointment! The first book in this series “Chosen for Power” starts out as a current day Cinderella story! Busy CEO, Elle Simpson, who was burned by her former boyfriend, who secretly tried to take over her company, has now totally sworn off men. Feeling lonely and missing some love and attention, Elle goes to a masquerade ball and has a very hot one night stand with a very handsome, wealthy Drake Charles! Little does Elle know, that Drake is the powerful man behind this spectacular charity ball. Drake chooses a private life away from the attention that money and fame can bring. This is a wonderful story of two people learning to trust and to love each other. The road is extremely rocky along the way, but it is full of laughter, tears and surprising moments. AND if you are missing those wonderful, hilarious Rose Sisters, like I was, the character known as Shirley, will fill the bill and will win your heart, just as the Rose sisters did! I cannot wait for the second book in this series, “Built for Power,” which will be live on September 8th! This is an amazing series that will win your heart!!!

    Loved the Bluegrass series. This fell right in line as the others. Almost too predictable but love how all her books are easy reads for a quick escape.

    Love Ms. Brooks Books

    Longtime fan of Kethleen Brooks.. Her Bluegrass Series and the Bluegrass Brothers Series were GREAT! In Book 1 of the new Women of Power Series I loved that Elle was able to step into her late fathers CEO position and continue to not only grow the company but take down those who thought she was weak and incompetent... Book was well written and the characters, like always, were strong and likeable and with a large supporting cast... Sometimes funny, sometimes sad and always compelling, I recommend this author highly... And, in Drake Ms. Brooks has created yet another hunk of a male lover/hero...

    Good start to the series. Can't wait until the next book comes out. This family is a great, "one for all and all for one clan." I agree with
    anonymous that Shirley so far is the funniest character. She cracked me up also. Loved the walker with all the signs. Please keep them coming Ms Brooks.

    Great book! I love Kathleen Brooks' previous works so I was excited for this new series. It didn't disappoint. I loved the characters and I loved that the Elle and Drake's relationship was steady from the beginning. It was nice to read a book that had some suspense in it but it wasn't relationship suspense. Good book and a good beginning to a new series!
