Book Description

After ‘I do’...

Ajax Kouros has a plan – and being jilted at the altar is not part of it. Especially when he’s facing a thousand guests and one hundred reporters. His company’s future depends on marrying a Holt, so when his bride’s sister steps up to the altar... can he say no? Leah Holt has grown up watching her beautiful socialite sister hang on Ajax’s arm. Now she has the chance to stand in the spotlight and save her family’s fortune.

But saying ‘I do’ is only the beginning, and Leah soon realises that the man she has married is far more complex and distracting than the boy of her childhood fantasies...

‘Maisey is one of my favourite authors; you just fall in love with her voice!’ – Olivia, 34, Admin Services

More About the Author

Maisey Yates started writing stories from the moment she first learned how to form words with a pen. But she never had any idea what to write, and most stories sat started, half formed and half finished, but never completed.
During her high school and college years she spent a lot of time dreaming about holding a book in her hands that had her name emblazoned across the front, but she did a lot more dreaming than actual writing.
At her very first job she was fortunate enough to meet her very own tall, dark and handsome hero, who happened to be her boss, and promptly married him and started a family. It wasn't until she was pregnant with her second child that she found her very first Harlequin Presents in a local thrift store. She'd never read a Harlequin romance before, and by the time she'd reached the happily ever after she had fallen in love. She devoured as many as she could get her hands on after that, and she knew that these were the books she wanted to write!
Soon after that she saw online that Harlequin was running a competition to win an editor for a year. She decided that was her sign to get in gear and start writing again. So she wrote her chapter and synopsis and hit send with trembling hands. She didn't get any feedback from the contest, but it was the boost she needed to get her first full manuscript finished and submitted to Presents.
Nearly two years later, while pregnant with her third child, she received The Call from her editor, informing her they wanted to buy that manuscript. She was very glad that the good news didn't send her promptly into labor!
She still can't quite believe she's blessed enough to see her name on, not just any book, but her favorite books.
Maisey lives with her supportive, wonderful, diaper-changing husband and three small children across the street from her parents, and the home she grew up in, in the wilds of Southern Oregon.
She enjoys the contrast of living in a place where you might wake up to find a bear on your back porch and then heading into the home office to write stories that take place in exotic, urban locales.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dire! 12 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I had already downloaded this book before reading the other Kindle review. I wish I had waited! I really disliked Ajax & Leah. He was just just downright nasty, cold, hard & horrid! I was appalled at the way he treated Leah straight after the wedding - what a jerk! I was astounded that Leah accepted his behaviour! Where was her self respect & backbone? Ajax kept going on about 'his plan' & needing to be in control - I just got bored! I didn't like the way Ajax 'dealt' with Leah's advances or after the first time they 'made love'. I know we are supposed to buy into the scenario of his terrible background & this 'accounts' for his attitude, but it didn't work. I read these types of books because I'm looking for hunky, loveable, alpha males who are sexy & heroines who are strong, feisty, sweet & endearing. This book's characters certainly didn't fit any of these descriptions. As the other reviewer has commented - avoid this book & save your money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid it 3 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A real turkey. Sounded promising from the back cover but the story was weak. A heroine that got on my nerves, a weak hero. Come on its almost as if the author gave up after page 2. It wasn't worth the paper it was written on. Surely Maisey you can do better then this. One book I really wished I hadn't wasted any money on. Avoid it.

Leah and Ajax's story is fiesty and just how I like a story. I don't like wimpy heroines. I just want to give them a good shake. Not in this story though. Maisey Yates never lets us down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Be Still My Beating Heart 22 Aug. 2013
By TashNz - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
WOW! What a story! So many great aspects of this story I'm not sure where to start.

The opening chapter is brilliant, Leah's sister has left her groom waiting at the alter. Leah suggests she step in and marry the groom, Ajax, because it was for business purposes anyway, it means that she gets to keep her business and Ajax gets to take over as CEO as agreed between him and Leah's father who's retiring. As the first daughter married it means if Leah marries Ajax then the enemy who Leah's sister has runaway with wont inherit the business empire if they marry. I did a little research and am so so so pleased to read Leah's sister will get her story next year (can.not.wait)

As soon as the ring's on the finger you learn that all is not as it seems with Ajax, he's not the perfect man Leah has spent her childhood running around after, his past has truly haunted him and he refuses to lose control ever ever ever again. Leah's not having it tho, she knows what she wants and goes after it full throttle, determined theirs will be a marriage in every possible way it can be. Ajax is as dark as night to Leah's light as day which makes for many interesting interactions for the two.

Maisey Yates is now an Auto Buy for me. The more of her stories I read the more I'm left with the WOW feeling when I reach the last page. I want to heap praise on Maisey for this story because she has changed up almost every mould there is for a Harlequin Presents story. In NZ the Presents line is called Sexy. If you want to heat things up even more you read a "Blaze". His Ring is Not Enough is a brilliant mix of the two. Maisey deserves praise because she has taken the marriage for business scenario and changed it up in so many brilliant unique ways it's original. I'm not really going to elaborate on what precisely is original because it'll spoil the plot. You'll know what I mean when you read it.

HRINE is for you if you love dark tortured heroes and enjoy the heroine kicking butt, knows what she wants and will try everything no matter how many times the answer is no. Heroine's that don't give up or play by the rules. It's pretty intense in the bedroom and would be right at home in a Blaze line. This story breaks almost every Presents mould and has a very original back story and original approaches by the lead characters. Even as I write this i'm still thinking WOW! And as I said before I can.not.wait for Leah's sister's story next year.

1.0 out of 5 stars Been There, Done That 23 Aug. 2013
By Jenny Melfi - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
His Ring Is Not Enough is an updated version of the Harlequin romance. Ajax is the tortured hero with a trunk full of issues. Leah is the misguided heroine who loves him. She is a masochist who endures verbal and emotional abuse from Ajax. During most of the book, he is cold and distant. When he finally loses control, he has wild rough sex with her. Bondage was involved; it was erotica. Near the end, Ajax apologizes, opens up and professes his love. Leah forgives him. For me, it was too little, too late. The damage was done. This book was not romantic; it was sick. It made me physically ill. I've read other books with tortured heroes who were abusive; and some were rapists. Been there, done that. I'm tired of reading it over and over again. I don't recommend this book. Don't waste your money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not always an easy read 7 Sept. 2013
By Sandy Milan - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of those stories where you constantly feel for the h all the way through the book. She's loved the H forever but he fell in love and got engaged to her sister instead. The sister jilts him and runs off with his enemy so the h proposes marriage so he keeps her father's company. The h is so self-sacrificing and it's hard not to feel her pain as she knows she's second choice. She's been in her beautiful sister's shadow her whole life and now she marries someone she loves and who doesn't want her. Anyway seeing as it's an HP there is a hea but as I say it's not easy getting there!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reviewed by Desere Steenberg 1 Sept. 2013
By Desere Steenberg - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
All most any woman who has a sister or sisters will tell you that even though you argue sometimes even to the point of hitting each other, yes it does happen, yet you always remain friends and you will always be there for each other. Sisterhood is a bond that simply cannot be broken.

In the new Maisey Yates read this is proven by the character Leah. It is her sister's wedding day, a day everyone should be happy and ready to drop in and help the bride with any crisis she may encounter, but standing in for her as the actual bride is pushing it.

Yet this is exactly what Leah does, telling herself it is simply for the sake of her family business and to ensure her own company does not go down, and it has nothing to do with the fact that the groom is all dark and sweet Ajax, that she has been in love with since forever!

But once she marries him, she finds there is so much more to the man behind the mask then she ever thought, and getting him to release that mask and show the real him that lurks inside is a backup plan she has to play by feeling and not by instinct, afterall look what instinct reactions got her, married to a man she never really knew!

The character of Leah was not your typical Harlequin Presents heroine, yes she is fun, feisty, always ready to fight, yes the kind I simply adore! But where other heroines from this line are the kind to be described as if they are supermodel thin, Leah is curved and totally owns it, when she can. I liked that the author lets Leah have a issue with the little bit of extra weight but also lets her hit a low here and there with it all, it made her more realistic to me as reader. The fact that she owns a candy shop was a little bit of a "And you feel self conscious over your weight at times" moment for me, but I also found it to again feel very realistic and brought the read closer to real life. Nicely incorporated Maisey!

The character of Ajax, was in the start one that I thought was going to be one of those yummy, delicious, sweeter than candy hero's and guess what, I was not disappointed , I got that and a whole more! The author has written some pretty dark hero's before and yes some of their actions have touched base with the dangerous Mr. Grey, but this time the author delved deeper into the dom/sub world and the hero was so much more than just dark, the man was so dark he was darn right scary at times, but oh so very hot!Yes, the kind where you forget you're a lady and simply say " Come here let me take off your pants".

But if you are thinking that it is sounds more like a erotica, then you need to remember is that Harlequin Presents reads are known to be very hot and spicy but also keep it very nicely compressed into a sweet and sensual little bubble, perfect reading material for those of us that prefer 'love is forever and not to un-vanilla me completely 'reading fans, and that this read will not quite go that way.

Instead this read hit all of the high's and low's with sweet and sensual romance touching base with erotica but not full on, just enough to maybe wet your appetite to go looking for a real erotic read if you have never read one, and enough to let you know this is going to be awesome, bring on the deep, dark hidden emotions!

The read was full of tension right till the very end, really left me feeling as is if I was not reading a Harlequin Presents, because it simply felt as if that sweet, kind (and what Harlequin Presents are know for) moment is not going to come and this is a ending I will surly not like, however the author did not disappoint, and I will advise when reading this book that you repeat the mantra " Keep going the best part is coming".

I am taking away a message of sometimes masked are indeed needed, but they can ultimately cost you dearly. When the right person comes along you need to find the courage to drop the mask and look deeper for your answer of happiness lies in the eyes of the person looking back at you with pure, un-judgemental love.

The secondary characters of Leah's runaway sister and the "love of her life" Alexios, was incorporated into the story just enough to make you know, that when the author sets that one loose on the world you will be first in line to grab a copy.

A hot page-turner of a read! I highly recommend this read for all romance fans that love a good old fashioned brideswap story but with the added bonus of a so not expected hero.
