Book Description

Corkscrew Bay Series

Book 2
Each book in this series can be read as a standalone story

Kate’s waited three years to meet the new owner of Darrock Castle. What she did not expect was her intense attraction to the sexy-as-sin recluse billionaire with dubious scruples that included—but possibly not limited to—random threats, unreasonable firings, community snubbing and suspicious helicopter activity. But she’s falling, sinking to the bottom, and there she finds a vulnerability in the man she’d never have imagined.

When Alexander Gerardo decides to teach the local reporter a lesson, what he finds instead is a woman who fills spaces he’d never known were there. Who crashes over walls he would have sworn he’d never erected. His natural aversion to the media has deep roots, but when it comes to Kate, he’s never wanted anything or anyone else more. Even if it means he’s playing with fire and tempting disaster.

When enemies turn to lovers, can sex turn into a romance to last a lifetime?

“I need to speak to the senior editor.” The gravel tenor rumbled over that order and down her spine to curl into her toes.
Kate blew out a long, shallow breath.
An abrupt, “Please” followed, tacked on like an afterthought.
Didn’t matter. There was a sexy voice, and then there was sin. This voice belonged on a face with chiselled cheekbones and a hollowed jaw. On a tanned body rippled in lean muscle. Designer suits and Armani sunglasses. Dark brown hair mussed with a careless hand and sliding into the turn of a collar.
“Hello?” came the voice again, traced with accents of Italian.
“Um, speaking,” she said, fanning hot cheeks with her free hand. If Megan were here, she’d put this guy on speakerphone. “This is the senior editor.”
“Excellent. Then you’re responsible for approving that piece on the front page of the paper today.”
Her mind snapped to attention and her toes uncurled.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet sexy story 14 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a great story and I can see the Corkscrew Bay series is going to get better and better. I love stories that link characters who become like familiar friends. FALLING FOR ALEXANDER does great job of linking the love story of Kate, a small town reporter, and Alexander, a passionate Italian-American songwriter, back to Megan and Jack (Falling for the Guy Next Door)and setting it up for Finn & Isobel, two other Corkscrew Bay residents - they're there, but not taking over, just filling the pages with the warmth of old friends. Great stuff!

FALLING FOR ALEXANDER begins with Kate fighting another of her crusades to regain the town's privileges from the hostile new owner of the local castle (Alexander). Alex, with a tragic family history resulting in a hatred of the press, has to deal with a feisty impulsive sexy woman who is also a reporter. Both have to learn to overcome certain inner struggles before they can open themselves up to the attraction that flares between them. But Alex's past and Kate's impulsive curiosity threaten to drive them further apart.

At times I read with a silly smile on my face, because this sweet but sexy story made me feel happy and relaxed!! Nothing better after a tiring day!

5.0 out of 5 stars loved it 4 May 2014
By Serena
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the book the sense of community and small town really shines through but it's not shoved in your face all the time
Kate is adorable and smart and Alexander is smart talented but really private which is a problem since Kate can rival a cat in curiosity
But a cat has nine lives and Kate has only one chance
I loved the book the impulsiveness of Kate
The way that she can't refuse a dare even if it is implied and not said
She is feisty and jumps in with both feet all the time I love the way she is potrayed and she remains true to herself all through the book
She doesn't have a sudden character change like most heroines do after falling in love

Must read !!

4.0 out of 5 stars I want a castle 7 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
4 Stars in my Sky!

Falling For Alexander is the second book in Claire Robyns's Corkscrew Bay series. I haven't read the first book Falling For the Guy Next Door (although I'll probably go back and read it now) but thankfully it works well as a standalone novel.

Kate lives in the small Cornish town Corkscrew Bay where she runs and owns a local newspaper. Kate is really into preserving local traditions but much the her annoyance, Alexander, the mysterious and never-seen owner of the area's stronghold, Castle Darrock has closed the castle and grounds. Alexander isn't interested in public tours or events he just wants privacy.

The book begins with Kate using her paper to try to persuade Alexander to allow the longstanding town Easter Egg hunt to take place in the castle grounds. The mysterious Alexander turns out to be a beautiful, passionate and extremely secretive Italian Billionaire who likes his privacy. Kate's schemes to change his mind were hilarious and their bantering was really entertaining.

Alexander is determined not to like Kate because she is a reporter; he loathes the Press and is wary of all journalists (I'll let you discover why), but he can't seem to forget about her. Alexander's backstory was really sad. I have to admit I was expecting more a more kinky reason for his privacy; I've clearly been reading too many E.L. James and Jodi Ellen Malpas books!

After the way the book ended I'm expected Finn and Izzy to be the focus of the next story. Falling For Alexander is cute but not too cutesy. The naughty scenes were not graphic, mainly romantic or implied. I love the South West of England and am seriously considering moving to Cornwall!
