What a Beautiful Sunday in the Valley!

Hello all, I hope this weekend has been as good for you as it has been for me. I got all of my fall decorations up and got to spend some time with friends, can't ask for much more than that out of a weekend. The book that I am reviewing today is actually the first in the series that Jenn reviewed yesterday. While my head is spinning about things being out of order I want to thank Jenn for jumping in and saving me yesterday when life got in the way and I did not have my review ready. I also want to give a BIG shout out to Jules Bennett who is guest blogging with us tomorrow. If you get the chance to meet Jules, you will find like I have, that she is one of those truly genuine people. Ok so lets get down to what you all read our blog for....the review.

Seducing the Enemy's Daughter
Brady Stone had just learned the new manager of the property he wanted was a woman...and quite desirable. Charming Samantha Donovan into giving away corporate secrets would be even sweeter considering she was the enemy's daughter.

This book begins with Brady Stone arriving in Hawaii at the Lani Kaimana resort with the sole purpose of regaining control of the property that, as far as he and his brother are concerned, was stolen from their dying father by Stanley Donovan. Brady doesn't realize that Sam Donovan is not the son of his enemy but is actually Samantha Donovan, nor did he expect the instant attraction he has to her. Brady is determined to use any means necessary to ensure that his family gets the resort back and he is ok with using seduction to do it.

Samantha is determined to make the resort into a successful business again to earn the respect and attention that she is lacking from her father. When Brady arrives and begins his seduction of her she has no idea who he is or what he is doing. Samantha has a lot of ideas to turn the failing business around but all of her ideas are shot down but not just her father but also her brother who is in line to take over the business from their father. She is instantly attracted to Brady but refuses his advances several times not willing to be distracted from her goal. However Brady is persistent and she finally gives into what she really wants and the two start a love affair.

When Samantha end up pregnant she goes to Brady to let him know when her brother arrives for an unexpected visit. When he sees the two together he tells her who Brady is and that Brady has just been using her to get corporate secrets from her. Samantha is devastated and orders both men to leave the hotel.

Back in San Franciso, Brady realizes how much he loves Sam and goes to her brother to tell him that he will give up the hotel if Miles will just let Sam run it the way that she wants to. In the meantime Sam has realized that she doesn't want the corporate life anymore and turns in her resignation, so she can raise hers and Brady's baby. She travels to S.F. to confront her father over their troubled relationship and they end up reconciling. When she returns to Hawaii she finds Brady in her room holding the doctors report on the pregnancy. When Brady tells her how much he loves her she confesses she loves him to, and they decide to marry.

Jules books always make me remember why I started reading romances back in high school. I always walk away from one of her books with just a little less pessimism. I give this book 4 chocolate covered strawberries!!!
