Can Tristan afford to trust the woman he wants?
Tristan Grant’s entertainment venues are now the most popular in the country, but his success has come at a price. Larry and Debbie Shipton, his main competitors, are resorting to sabotage to regain their number one position. But that’s not the most shocking news. The woman he had a one-night stand with claims she’s pregnant with his baby. The problem is, he can’t afford to trust her—because her name is Paige Shipton, and she is Larry and Debbie’s daughter. Too bad he didn’t know that before he slept with Paige, but he’s determined not to make any more mistakes when it comes to dealing with the devious Shiptons. If only he can find a way to stop being so attracted to Paige...
Can Paige save her heart from being irreparably broken?
Paige Shipton is going ahead with her pregnancy. It doesn’t matter that the father is Tristan Grant—the man who accuses her of deception simply because of who her parents are. She wants the baby, and she’s prepared to raise it alone. When she tells Tristan he doesn’t need to be involved, his answer surprises her, and she soon finds herself falling deeply for the man determined to ruin the Shipton name. With the conflict between Tristan and her parents escalating to destructive heights, can Paige avoid getting her heart irreparably broken?

About the Author
Ever since I was a young teenager, I have loved reading romance novels. My auntie used to send me boxes of her books and I would devour them one after another. Every so often, I would read a mystery or a suspense or a paranormal novel as I love those genres too. But romance is still my favourite. :)
For many years, I wrote technical and non-fiction materials for professional use and had only dreamt about writing a novel. Then, one day, after a period of binge-reading sexy romances, I decided to sit in front of my computer and start writing my first fiction book.
The result? My debut novel, "Will To Love", the first in the hot and sexy Lifestyle by Design series.
After that, I knew that I would love to tell more beautiful love stories through my books.
I live in Sydney, Australia with my amazing husband who lovingly cheers me on in my journey as a novelist.

I haven't met a Miranda P Charles book that I haven't instantly fallen in love with. The Captured by Love series is one that just tugs at your heartstrings and makes you believe in love. Just like all of the other books in the series I couldn't put this book down. A true page turner right to the end. Tristan didn't want a family of his own right now he is in the prime of his career and doesn't need the distraction. That is until the one distraction that he can't resist walks back into his life with a surprise that he wasn't expecting. Tristan was drawn to Paige right from the start, that was until he realized he was the daughter of his biggest competitor. The drama is in full effect and the emotions are all over the place, but I wouldn't change a thing about it. That's what keeps me flipping those pages as fast as I can. The series can be read as standalone books but I would recommend reading them in order of the series, it just gives you a little bit more of the character development and introduction throughout the series.
Paige Shipton is pregnant from a one night stand and she is nervous about telling the father as he had freaked out when he discovered her last name and realized she was the daughter of his biggest business rivals and thrown her out of his hotel room. She was right to be, as his initial reaction is that she is lying but he has to admit that a condom had broken. Much to his surprise after the initial shock, Tristan realizes he is excited about the baby and that regardless of her parentage he is still attracted to Paige. A relationship between the pair of them is not however going to be plain sailing. This is a fast paced and well written romance with a touch of mystery and suspense. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
Another fabulous romance with the “family” from the Captured by Love series. Tristan is determined to not like Paige and when she shows up to tell him she is pregnant with his baby, well he is even more determined. Tristan is at odds with Paige’s parents, they compete in the night club business and when he tried to purchase one of their clubs, they pulled out of the deal. Paige is in love with Tristan but knows this is an impossible relationship with the bad blood between him and her parents. When Paige’s parents put her in a situation to marry to claim money from a trust fund, she finds herself truly stuck. She doesn’t want to marry Curtis. Surprisingly, Tristan provides her with the solution she needs. Will a marriage of convenience turn into a long last love? There is a great suspense element to this story that blends perfectly with the romance which kept me guessing until the end. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.
Too bad falling in love doesn't come with an instructional manual. Complications are the special of the day for two unsuspecting lovebirds in The Unexpected Husband, the eighth novel of Miranda P. Charles', Captured by Love series. This time around Tristan lands in some serious quicksand. Not only is he in the middle of a heated feud with his biggest competitors, he's also landed himself in a deeply uncomfortable situation. With fatherhood pending, his contentious rivalry extending and his hormones and emotions getting out of hand, he's one step closer to former bachelorhood. IF, he can get past his biggest obstacle yet. He's sleeping with the enemy. How could anyone not love the bachelors and bachelorettes of this strong group of friends. From heartbreak to soulmate, Ms. Charles knows how to write romance and keep readers anxiously waiting for more.
