Cover Description:

Summer St. Croix hates weddings. But when she meets hot-as-sin Luke Vanetti at her oldest friend’s ceremony, he promises to give her a reason to like them.

It’s all sexy fun and games until Summer realizes that Luke is none other than her new boss. Summer refuses to continue to have a fling with her superior, even though the passion between them still runs wildfire hot. But the billionaire private investigator doesn’t see the problem, especially since he knows that one night with Summer won’t be enough.

When Luke’s cousin sends an SOS asking for help in stopping a ring of jewel thieves from robbing his luxury hotel on the Amalfi Coast, Luke agrees. And Summer’s first assignment will be posing as his very sexy, rich, and bejeweled fiancée at the Hotel dei Fiori Isola del Sole.

Playing the happy couple is hard enough during the day, but the nights… will those romantic Amalfi nights turn the charade into more than just a job for both Summer and Luke… for good?

Read on for my thoughts on The Billionaire’s Charade.  No true spoilers, promise.

Throughout the Amalfi Night Billionaires series we have slowly been feed bits and pieces of the robberies happening at hotels in the general vicinity of the Amalfi coast where our stories take place.  While they might not be next door to each other, each robbery is escalating in violence, and while the police do not believe they are connected there are others who think differently.

Now with Luke and Summer’s story we will finally catch the thieves  When Luke and Summer hooked up at their friend’s wedding, neither one knew that they’d wind up at work together on Monday morning.  They simply knew that it had been an amazing, sensuous weekend, one that they’d like to repeat… if they hadn’t been boss and employee.  Now Summer and Luke are on the case at the hotel, playing the affluent newly engaged couple, there for a weekend wedding that will attract lots of wealthy guests with tons of valuable jewelry.  Summer’s declaration that she won’t sleep with her boss, since she now knows that Luke is her new boss.. may or may not go the way she originally intended.

The Billionaire’s Charade is such a delightful romance.  Beautiful location, fun and entertaining characters, plus a mystery to solve – what’s not to love about this novel or this series?  🙂

I have enjoyed this series so much.  And there are still a few brothers, cousins as yet unattached.  Maybe we can hope for a return visit to the Amalfi coast some time in the future.  If you love sexy love stories, locations so well described you can picture them and believable heroes and heroines to walk you through their romance – then you will love The Billionaire’s Charade or any stories in the Amalfi Night Billionaire series.  I would not hesitate to recommend this story to anyone who simply enjoys a really good love story.
