Lacybourne manor is the third book in the Ghost and Reincarnation series but each book can be read as a standalone. I’m a big, big fan of Kristen Ashley and I really love this series. In this book you don’t only get a great alpha man and a curvy and softhearted woman but also a witch and a ghost. What more can you wish for?
Like in many books of Kristen Ashley there are some great side characters in the story. They make you smile, they make you sad. They make you feel many thing throughout the story. I love that very much.
I must confess that the only reason that I read this book was because I really love this author's writing. And althought I didn't know what to expect of this book, I liked it.
I really liked the way how she writes about Vivica.
The only thing that I wish for, is that I could read more about Nicholas/Vivica thoughts. But I think that my wish will come true in the second book (Killer queen).
My friend, Karin, really loved this book and couldn't stop talking about it, so of course I was very curieus about this book. And just like my friend, Karin, I really loved it!! It was a while since I read this sort of book. But I loved every moment of it.
Brishen, a Kai prince most marry a Gauri noblewomen to seal a treat between both races. Ildiko always knew that it was her fate to marry for politics. Luckily for both, there's an instant understanding between them. Althought they look different like night and day, both want this marriage to work. So they decided to be honest with each other. And that's what made me love this book so very much. The relationship between them was so wonderful and lovely. The writer really takes her times to let the relationship grow between Brishen and Ildiko. What is more wonderful then two lonely people finding love and understanding with each other?
I can't wait to read the next book!
I love Kristen Ashley her books. Every time I have a dip or I don’t know what to read next I always read a book from Kristen Ashley. Because she has never disappointed me and that was the same with this book. An alpha man, a woman who loves him but who isn’t afraid to tell when he’s wrong. A bunch of friends and a lovely family. I love it and I hope that she will soon write Luci and Hap their story ! I can’t wait to read it.
I love reading books about the mafia but it’s not always easy finding great books. But I can say that I totally loved this book!!
Welcome in the world of the Mob, where men are tough, where killing is the way of life and where marrying is not a matter of love but a matter of business. A way for the family to acquire power or a way to bring peace between two Mob families. Aria Scuderi was born in the Mob family from Chicago. When she was fifteen years old her father told her that she would marry Luca – The Vice – Vitiello. The oldest son of the head of the New York family to bring peace between the two families. Now three years later, the day has come that Aria has dreaded for so long. Her marriage to Luca Vitiello.
Luca Vitiello may be handsome and wealthy and for the outside world he is described as the perfect catch but Aria knows better. As the ‘heir’ of the New York mob family, Luca is the most cold-hearted and deadliest man of New York. She knows that he has no problem with killing a man or torture him. For him it’s all part of business.
The only way that Aria can get out of this marriage is through dead or eloping. But where would she go? Where could she hide from these dangerous men? And what will happen with her family is she elope? Is her freedom worth a war between the two Mob families?
No, Aria don’t think her freedom is worth a war so she decides to go through with the marriage, with a little hope in her heart that maybe she and her new husband can find an understanding in their marriage. And just when she thinks that her marriage and her husband have a chance, she discovers something that make her doubt everything.
In this dangerous world were you can’t trust anybody, love can be a dangerous emotion!
If you’re looking for a sweet romance, don’t read this book. The Mob world is a dark place, where men are cold and dangerous and where love has no place. I love Mob stories and I really loved this one. There happened something in this book that I usually don’t like but here I can understand why Luca did it. In his world it is their way of life. I didn’t like it but I can follow his logic about it.
I loved this story so much that I went straight from this book into the next one.
