Overview

Stranded together during a rampaging hurricane, hot passion explodes between a reclusive billionaire and a headstrong reporter seeking his exclusive story...a story that could get her killed.

Hunted by someone desperate to silence her...

Daredevil TV reporter Veronique "Ronnie" Whitcomb is charismatic, fun-loving, and loyal to a fault. Especially to the man she fell in love with fifteen years ago. He's now a self-made billionaire, and at the center of a public scandal so hot and juicy, Ronnie must get an exclusive interview...an interview that will vindicate him and expose the real criminal behind the scintillating headlines. Her life is in jeopardy, but her love for Nick might cause the real danger.

He'll risk his life - and his heart - to keep her alive...

Financial whiz, Nick Cameron rose from an underprivileged life to become one of America's youngest corporate billionaires. Now he's laying low on a barrier island, far away from the raging media storm that nearly destroyed him. When little Ronnie Whitcomb shows up on his doorstep, all grown up and heart-stoppingly beautiful, he tries to deny his feelings for her, but a hurricane strands them on the island together. Keeping Ronnie at arm's length becomes impossible.

    Heart Raider is romantic and sexy at the same time as being filled with suspense and has fantastic characters. Veronique and Nick are a great pair who are made for each other. Veronique is a strong willed independent woman who is fearless, smart and determined to pull the love of her life Nick, out of what ever he gets into. Sophia Knightly is an author who keeps you interested from the first page to the very last page, and wanting more. Heart Raider is another must read by Sophia Knightly.

Ronnie and Nicks' chemistry, Ronnie's smart mouth and quite tongue and Nick's broodiness and the way he tries to push this firecracker away!!

    Wonderful Book!!!!
    I loved this book, I love Veronique and Nicks story. I love the story and that Veronique is a very independent strong willed woman. This book has it all romance, humor, and suspense. I could not read this book fast enough because I couldn't wait to see how it worked out and I was not disappointed. I even teared up at the end because I was so happy how it works out. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. Sophia Knightly is a fantastic author and I have loved every book that she has written, and I have to say this is now one of my favorites.

    I just finished reading Heart Raider and really enjoyed the auth

    I just finished reading Heart Raider and really enjoyed the author’s story. It was an easy, quick read and one that kept my interest from start to finish. The main character, Veronique, comes across as a free-spirit who possesses a sassy demeanor and isn’t afraid to go after what she wants. She is a career journalist who uses her skills investigating stories and reporting the facts. One story Veronique happens to follow was about her teen camp counselor, Nick, who was publically humiliated by a soon-to-be ex-wife. With Veronique’s journalistic abilities and teenage crush that never went away, Veronique uncovers information that might bring Nick out of hiding and maybe right into her arms. The setting where most of the book took place was perfectly described by the author. I could almost feel the tropical breeze and smell all the tropical fruits! I would highly recommend reading Heart Raider.

    Wonderful

    I loved this story! It was fun, exciting and sexy. I will definitely read the other books in the series.

    Just an FYI.....Ft. Myers and the barrier islands are on the West Coast of Florida - the Gulf of Mexico side. You can't taste the salty ocean or smell the ocean breeze - as Veronique claims she did.

    Loved it anyway!

    HEART RAIDER by Sophia Knightly was an intriguing tale with seve

    HEART RAIDER by Sophia Knightly was an intriguing tale with several layers of deception, seduction, and plotting by devious females all out for a piece of Nick Cameron, the reclusive billionaire. Lucky for him, Veronique (Ronnie), the intrepid reporter was determined to save him. I really liked Veronique's sassy, unfiltered personality. It kept the story going just waiting to see what she'd say next. And who could blame her for her lifelong crush on the sexy Nick. I love romances where the girl gets the guy she's dreamed about being with all her life. Poor Nick did his best to keep his heart from falling, but Veronique proved irresistible and just what his damaged heart needed to live again. Something he realizes almost too late. The chemistry between Nick and Ronnie made the love scenes more explosive, especially the first time on the beach. This story was enjoyable and a good start to a new series.

    I love Nick's and Ronnie's story! Ronnie is the perfect woman for Nick. She is the sunshine in Nick's otherwise
    self-imposed dreary life. This story has passion, romance, a hint of mystery, humor and characters you can't help
    but fall in love with. This is the first book in the Heartthrob series and it started it off with a bang!!!

    Heart Raider is the first book in Sophia Knightly's Heartthrob series. In Heart Raider, TV reporter Ronnie Whitcomb is out to prove her childhood crush isn't the criminal the media has labeled him. I have to say I really enjoyed this story. It had the perfect combination of romance, mystery, and adventure. I also love how Sophia has all of her books set in Florida. I definitely feel like I'm back in my favorite state whenever I read one of her books. Highly recommend.

    WOW such a wonderful book. I loved how adventurous Ronnie was and how she never doubted Nick. Nick has such a great heart and cares more than he wants to admit. They had such incredible chemistry. I loved the plot with it's humor, suspense and romance.
    Each book I read by Sophia Knightly just keeps getting better. This is my favorite so far. I can't wait to read more of the Heartthrob series.

    Loved this book!!
    I really enjoyed this book, could not finish it quick enough. It was easy to follow Veronique and Nick's story. Veronique is independent and not afraid of a challenge. I love the fact that she never gave up on Nick, and never thought bad things about him. Nick just wants to be left alone, but Ronnie won't allow that, she wants him to simply live his life to the fullest, and stop hiding away. She makes him laugh and smile again, and that it just what Nick needs. A great love story, with romance, suspense and humor. Loved it!!
