I remember reading The Lady and the Unicorn when it first came out years ago as a Loveswept book #29. In fact I still may have it in a box in the attic. I still like it. The plot is still good. I still like the characters. Their is still too much sex in it.
Janna Cannon is a very caring person. She works at a wildlife that has just lost it's lease. If they don't find a big enough land for the animals they will have to be sent to different zoos. They found some land but they can't get a hold of the owner Rafe Santine to see if he would donate the land for a new wildlife park.
Rafe is a rich businessman. He has women that stay with him that he buys them expensive jewelry and clothes. He has a temper. A A personality, always wanting to go. Now he is stuck at his mansion while he recuperates for 2 months. He is bored.
Janna decides to scale his 12 foot wall to get the chance to talk to Rafe. The estate has guard dogs at night and they will attack strangers on the property. Janna has the dogs under her control and stops them from going after their handlers.
Rafe is curious that Janna wants to meet him so badly that he has her escorted to him. He thinks she is a hooker.
Rafe decides if she will stay their for the rest of his time their he will give the land worth over 2 million dollars. Janna agrees.
One thing I learned about was tigers and how many tigers it would take to make a fur coat. It really brought it too my attention. How we need to take care of wild animals.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley.

Janna Cannon is passionate about saving endangered animals. When the reserve lease is in jeopardy, Janna devises a plan to enlist Rafe Santine’s help.
Rafe Santine is a self made billionaire. Driven toward success in everything that he does, Rafe is not use to the word no. He was enamored by the gumption displayed by Janna so Rafe decides Janna is his newest conquest. He didn’t intend for the tables to be turned on him and soon discovers he doesn’t want to live without Janna.
The only problem, Janna won’t give her heart over to Rafe, who treats people as a disposable commodity. Fitting to hold on to her heart, Janna discovers her assigned captivity with Rafe stimulates feelings she never knew she had.
I really enjoyed reading this story. The characters have obvious personal flaws, baggage that keeps them from discovering true happiness. Watching them work through their issues, struggling with emotions and trying to alter unfavorable behaviors created a wonderful storyline. The passion is fierce between Janna and Rafe, but boy do they need to work on their communication skills.
I did wish that there was more exploration into Janna’s inherit animal magnetism, I thought it would be an extremely interesting expansion to their story.
I found The Lady and the Unicorn a quick, easy, fun and pleasurable read and I couldn’t help but get emotionally drawn into the plot.
This ARC copy of The Lady and The Unicorn was given to me by Random House Publishing Group - Loveswept in exchange for a honest review. This book was set for republication May 13, 2013.

Rafe Santine is a self made billionare. He came from a rough childhood and worked his way up from construction at sixteen to a driven, hard bitten businessman. Janna Cannon is his polar opposite. She is dedicated to saving endangered animals and desperately wants him to donate some of his vast property to be used as a reserve. While I found Janna to be a totally likable and an interesting character, I had a little more difficulty with Rafe. He is abrasive, rude and abrupt and in some scenes, borderline abusive. However, taking into account his childhood and his struggle to the top, he gradually grew on me. Especially when he began to show how truly vulnerable he was as he began to fall in love with Janna. Sometimes, opposites do attract.
