Book Description

The man behind the headlines… 

When billionaire Lucas Carrington returns to his New York mansion, he never expects to find beautiful stranger Kate Whitley making herself at home. Invited by his aunt to stay, he soon discovers she's a woman in need. She's raising funds for her sick daughter, so he agrees to let her stay—temporarily! 

Kate may not belong in Lucas's high-society world, but she sees there is more to this tycoon than the headlines suggest. Yet with so much at stake, can she trust herself and her heart with New York's most sought-after bachelor?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Poignant Romantic Tale 10 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Safe in the Tycoon's Arms is a poignant, romantic tale.

Kate is a single mother whose life consists of constant hurdles. The most devastating being her young daughter's serious illness. A fortuitous meeting with Connie a volunteer at the hospital where daughter is being treated results in a serendipitous meeting with Lucas. The enigmatic CEO of Carrington Gems returns to his Manhattan mansion much earlier than planned not knowing Connie his aunt has persuaded Kate to stay there too.

Kate and Lucas' explosive chemistry and destructive mistrust of each other's motives ensure their fledgling relationship is conflict ridden. Kate has no time for anyone but her daughter. Lucas refuses to let anyone into his life again after his disastrous marriage and the loss of contact with his young daughter.

Mutual need and respect builds between the emotionally fragile pair and Lucas helps Kate raise the money for daughter's treatment without losing her pride or independence.

Living in the same house Kate and Lucas' relationship deepens but can it have a future when they are both keeping secrets and holding back from true emotional commitment?

The characters embroil you in their turmoil. Kate is a strong woman and you empathise with her trust issues. The plot is interesting and keeps you guessing as to whether Kate and Lucas find the loving relationship they both deserve.

Safe in the Tycoon's Arms is an enticing mix of sweet romance edged with harsh reality and gives you the happy ever after the characters work for and deserve.

I received an advance copy of this book from the author.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful Read ,,, 27 Mar. 2014
By Rubina - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Kate is a divorcee and has a small girl, diagnosed with a tumor. :( Lack of money is actually one big problem hovering in front of Kate,when fate dumps her on Lucas’s doorstep - literally.

She was allowed to stay in his ramshackle mansion by his Aunt, little knowing that she would run into the owner of the house who had no clue that he has an unexpected guest. Lucas’s shock is understandable when he returns home one day to find a skimpily clad beautiful woman munching an apple in his kitchen.(Ommph eve-ish factor) *winking….. Both are drawn towards each other due to their pain and loneliness.

But Kate has one problem. She needs to raise funds immediately for her daughter. Unlike the other Harlequin stories that I've read, here our Hero is not of the macho, rich kind, with green notes piled inside the family vault. While I miss that, I can’t say that I’m disappointed in seeing this more relatable hero.

His funds are all tied up in his company and he cannot provide the cash. But he can help her raise the fund. His ramshackle mansion can be used for that.- did I mention that Kate is an interior designer? (sigh! The naughty Fate at work again. I am not feeling too good, psst Fate, can I have a handsome doctor here- I promise not to eat the apple also).

Kate has a perfect plan, to renovate their mansion and restore it to its former historical elegance and throw a party to showcase the Carrington Gems.

But pig headed Lucas is too caught up with his ex wife to see the beneficial proposition. Added to that he misses his own daughter, whom his ex wife does not allow him to meet. (Women can be mean too, I tell you). So, will Kate be able to persuade him? Of course.This is a Harlequin novel! Will they fall in love? Am I not reading a romance novel?!

So, if everything is predictable, why should this novel be picked up? Because, dear readers, it is the story of two mending souls. It is a story of a mother trying to keep a daughter alive. It is a story of a father not able to come in terms of being separated from his little daughter. How can you miss this one?

What I liked...

Unlike other Harlequin Mills and Boon romances, the characters are very relatable. Kate's sorrow as a mother touches my heart. Lucas's pain as a father sneak into my heart. Their love is simple yet complicated. Kate comes out as a passionate woman and Lucas as the boy next door. Even with the romance, the fate of Kate's daughter overtake the storyline.

4.0 out of 5 stars Review: Safe In The Tycoon's Arms 19 Mar. 2014
By Lisa Hines - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Safe in the Tycoon's Arms by Jennifer Faye is a standalone romance with a happy ever after ending. It is well-paced, interesting, and equal parts heart-warming and heart-breaking.

Kate Whitley is a strong independent mother who has been invited to stay at Lucas Carrington's mansion by Lucas's aunt. Lucas returns from a trip early and so begin the many confrontations of Kate and Lucas. Kate's daughter is very sick and needs surgery. Surgery that Kate can't afford so she does anything and everything she can to raise the money. Lucas has his own drama filled past to deal with and process and Kate and her situation just makes that even more difficult for him.

A beautiful romance, perfect for a feel-good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, Uncomplicated Romance 17 Mar. 2014
By Angela C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the 2nd book I have read by Jennifer, and it was a sweet, uncomplicated read. The two main characters in the book, Lucas Carrington and Kate Whitley are both damaged in a way. The have both been hurt and lied to by their previous spouses, and they don’t trust the opposite sex when it comes to matters of the heart.

Molly, Kate’s daughter is very sick and without a very expensive operation she may not make it. So all throughout the book Kate is planning a fund raising event to raise money for Molly’s surgery.

I liked the chemistry between Lucas & Kate, and found myself cheering them on. Lucas was named bachelor of the year, and Kate doesn’t believe someone like him could ever love someone like her.

All in all I enjoyed reading this book. The author did a good job of developing the characters, and the story was sweet. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet story, with well developed characters, and a light and uncomplicated read.
