Three brothers. . . One Empire. . . The House of Rule

Damian Rule is an ultra-staid businessman who likes his life just so. He wears his hair cut short; he demands his business affairs be organized, and he insists that his women be impeccably groomed and conservative in both speech and appearance. When he meets Angie Ross for the first time, he sees a hot, beautiful, gothic mess. With her fishnet stockings and spiked leather cuffs, she's wildly inappropriate for his long term needs. But for the short term? She'll do just fine.

Angie followed Damian's secretary across what seemed like miles of plush carpet and walked into the office when indicated. She was still in a state of shock; she'd found out in the reception area that he didn't merely work in the downtown high-rise, he owned the building.
She heard the door snap closed behind her, and with her heart catching, she faltered just inside the large room. Her gaze was caught and held by dark eyes as Damian leaned against a desk of solid mahogany while standing completely still, obviously awaiting her arrival. His eyes were both sharp and hooded, his body held in a pose of relaxation that seemed inconsistent with the almost tangible electricity that radiated from him in waves.
Her pulse pounding, her footsteps stalled completely. Before she could get a word out, he pushed off the desk and began to track her across the office, his muscles corded and his eyes reflecting a sheen of purpose. The space between them narrowed rapidly as his eyes fell to her throat and then scanned her body quickly before lifting to her face again.
Any semblance of a smile dissolved as his expression hardened imperceptibly; a raw sizzle filled the air as his brooding features reflected a harsh, atavistic hunger that almost brought Angie to her knees as he stood not six inches away in all his tall, masculine glory.
He stood almost indolently for the beat of three seconds before reaching out and seizing her with a dominant force that gave her not an ounce of choice in the matter.

About the Author

Lynda Chance is the author of the New York Times bestseller, 'The Mistress Mistake'. Her other works include the USA Today bestselling 'Sarah's Surrender', and 'The House of Rule' series. Lynda began writing when she couldn't find an alpha-male hero who was alpha enough to suit her and decided to write one for herself. She began with 'Seduced by the American Millionaire' and hasn't looked back since. Over time, her writing has grown and evolved both from practice and from listening to her reader's requests. Lynda writes contemporaries, historicals, Adult and New Adult novels, novellas and short-stories all with a common theme: Each has an alpha-male hero who crashes to his knees in lust and love when he finally meets his heroine. You can be sure in a Lynda Chance story, the hero will never cheat.

Lynda lives in Galveston County, Texas with her husband of a whole bunch of years in a tiny bay cottage with sketchy plumbing and beautiful views. They have two grown children who live in the Dallas area. Happily content in her home state of Texas, Lynda can usually be found with her e-reader or laptop computer.

This is another great read from Ms Chance, the first in her new series about the Rule siblings. It's got that perfect 'trademark' Lynda Chance combination of true romance, a proper tale, characters who you can visualise and who stay with you, plenty of hot, sexy, erotic sex (yes, I'm referring specifically to the bit in against the glass in the highrise - there must have been some major condensation going on, with all the steam, LOL!) and it ends in thekind of HEA that I, as a fan and as a lover of romance, totally need. It didn't disappoint in any way. Hopefully book 2 isn't that far off, and from what we saw of Nick and Courtney's interactions, it'll be another scorcher. Thanks Ms Chance, for a wonderful read. Please keep 'em coming.

Another great read from Lynda Chance, money worth spent!!! I'm addicted to all her books, and this one does not disappoint. I loved both the main characters, Damian was such an alpha male. I loved that Angie stood up to him, the chemistry between them was hot!! The secondary characters were great too, cant wait to see what happens next. And like all her books there was a HEA.

## As per the norm with a Lynda Chance book, Damien was an ass*ole. But I do love how fierce and possessive he was. Just not all the insults. And thank you Ms. Chance for not writing the hero as a man-slut. Yay, that was refreshing. We did not hear much from the heroine after the first chapter. She was too busy stumbling, trembling, and quivering. I did enjoy most of the book but I wish the author would've given the couple more time together outside of bed. Supposedly they spent time together but only the sex was described. Nothing more. And I absolutely hate when a book jumps 'several months later'. That deprives us of the pleasure of getting to know the characters. It did state that they had hot sex every night. So, although I was a tad disappointed, I still had fun reading this book and will be reading it again.

The premise was ok, but the storytelling left much to be desired.  For one, it was short - a novella.  Because of this  it jumped around to much and left too much time unaccounted for.  And two there was very little character development. I had tons of questions left unanswered.  This was very poorly written.

How could angie expect respectable talk from him when her language was just as filthy...why pople think they have to use filthy language in just about every sentence proves they illiteracy. I dont live in the dark ages but if i want a guy to respect me, i sure wouldnt use the filthy talk that writers think they need to use in their work!

Damian seemed almost on the verge of abuse especially when he was mad and he always seemed to be pissed about something. I was waiting for him to hit her, choke her or lock her up, in a nonconsensual way... The girl didn't really stick up for herself either. It was just a strange book for me.

Short but very good read. The story had everything: attraction, sexual chemistry, drama and a HEA. It is nice to read something that has it all. I am looking forward to other books by this author for this series, next is Rule's Property.

I've been waiting for this kind of alpha male for months! Loved Damien's all-encompassing want for Angie. The ending was amazing. Could have read the story for many more pages, but not a deterrent to enjoying the book. Lynda has the alpha male down pat. I wish they would have more scenes of just togetherness, but I'll take it just the way it is. Can't wait to read the next book with the brother as the Hero, "Rule's Property".

I love Lynda Chance!  I buy her books by her name alone because I know she's going to have a great story and an Alpha worth the insomnia...

Wow ! I've said it before but it needs repeating. Linda Chance does alpha males like no other. They are not mean or necessarily bad. Just very possessive and they love with an intensity that is wonderful. The love making scenes are the best. My only complaint is this book was too short. Would have loved more info on the main characters. But, I loved the book.

HOT HOT HOT! I always fall in love with a LC alpha - she writes them better than anyone - and Damien was no exception. A little short, but well developed characters and storyline. Can't wait for the next in this new series, Nick and Courtney's story, hope she writes fast!
