Delightful, cute, romantic and sexy is the way I would describe this book. I knew from the opening scene that Vander had to have had a reason for acting the way he did and I was glad to find out I was correct by the end of the book. I loved his relationship with Mia's nephew Charlie, especially the way he doesn't coddle him and helps him be the best he can be. I hope we get Charlie's story someday - he certainly deserves one! Mia is a great character, I loved that she's a writer under a pen name and that Vander's uncle Chuffy is a huge fan. He certainly brought humor into the story. Jafeer, Vander's Arabian horse is a character in itself and brought a sense of belonging to the story. Vander and Mia's relationship is HOT! It starts off with him showing her what she's paying for when she proposes marriage and continues throughout the story with some very heated encounters. Mia struggles with these encounters because she thinks they are not appropriate, but Vander has a way of getting her to let go. Highly recommended to lovers of sexy historical romances.
