Product Description

Product Description

Rafe Palazzo takes what he wants with no regrets. Arianna (Ari) Lynn Harlow has led a charmed life until tragedy strikes her family. He’s looking for a no-emotions attached mistress, she’s looking for redemption.

They are not a pair that should ever work, but undeniable attraction and devastating tragedies bring them together in the city by the bay where he fights to keep their relationship nothing more than an enjoyable way to meet his needs, and she battles to not lose herself in him. Spending time with Ari starts cracking the hard shell that Rafe has built around his heart, but he denies the affect she has on him until it’s too late to stop the inevitable conclusion that their relationship is headed for.

Rafe once believed in happily ever after, coming from a large Italian family. He’s got the Midas touch, since every endeavor he tries turns to gold. That all ends when his wife walks out the door and leaves him blindsided. His devastation quickly turns to steel when he decides no woman will fool him again. From that point on he treats relationships as nothing more than business transactions where both party’s come out mutually benefited.

Just when Ari has sunk to the lowest she’s ever been she finds an ad in the paper announcing a job that’s too good to be true. It turns out she’s right. She makes it through the intense rounds of interviews only to find out the job is for a mistress to the powerful Rafe Palazzo, owner of Palazzo Enterprises. Rafe gives her a day to think about whether she wants the position or not, and she’s sent on her way, only to find out her mother’s near-terminal position has taken a turn for the worse. Her mom’s only in the hospital because Ari messed up, and her mother’s the one who paid the price. Is Rafe her savior, or will he take her with him straight to the depths of hell?

More About the Author

Melody has had a passion for writing since she was a little girl. Her first book was written at around the age of ten, and it was about a handsome prince Charming rescuing his princess and taking her away to his castle to live happily ever after. She continued to write through her teenage years, but never with the expectation to ever publish anything. Around 2007 Melody realized that she had finished her first full manuscript, and looked at it in awe. She had around a hundred books started on her computer, but had never finished one before. She was so ecstatic about her accomplishment that she jumped in to work on another book. She finished five books in a three year period, and then started thinking about possibly publishing those books.
Melody did a lot of research and discovered how to get her books published, and has been in author's bliss since then. She is thrilled by the success of her books, since she loves her characters so much, and wants the world to feel the same way. She is constantly working on new materials, and feels like the sky is the limit. Her family helps come up with many ideas, and her friends are a constant help. She hopes you love her books as much as she loves writing them.
Melody has two amazing children, along with about five additional kids that she adores like her own kids, that keep her busy all the time with school events, and sporting schedules, a husband who has become a pretty great cook since she is planted in front of her computer all the time, and two puppies, who help her writing by making sure to keep her lap or feet warm. Family is always first in her life.

1.0 out of 5 stars So Annoying 3 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Did not realise this book was not finished, it should be made perfectly clear at the sale of this book that it is incomplete. When I look back on this book, I realise the author has repeated herself so many time's that it become's a joke. It is so annoying that in the middle of the book the next page you turn it say's 'The End'. As far as I am concerned it is the end of this author for me.

Bought this book as I really liked the synopsis on the back, and as I am no longer buying series until all books are written I was looking forward to what I beleive was a standalone.
On reading the Note from the Author, I find that this is in fact book one. No mention if it is a stand alone title or part of a series, so not wanting to start a story I cannot finish it has ended up in my kindle library awaiting books 2 ,3 4 or whatever the author decides to write.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ended at 85%... 12 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ok, so for 77p I shouldn't be complaining but.... The book stops at 85% which leaves me feeling robbed (!) and I also found myself with yet another cliffhanger. I disliked the main man Rafe so much by the end of the book that I won't bother buying the next instalment because I find I don't really care what happens. I wished authors would stop with the cliffhangers and making people wait for the next instalment and just write one long worthy book that I wouldn't mind paying a few more pounds for. Annoying.

2.0 out of 5 stars so so annoying 28 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
not the book itself, I enjoyed that- but there seems to be a trend lately in publishing to to end books in the middle- very unsatisfying and indeed I think misleading. I have no objection to buying a trilogy or whatever as long as I am TOLD

4.0 out of 5 stars Surrender 3 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Beginning of the book was a bit slow to start but when once the story got going it soon started to heat up. I liked the story but Rafe really got on my nerves quite a bit through the story. I really felt for Ari with what she was going through with her mum. Was a heart warming story and can't wait to read submit to see what happens after the cliffhanger from the end of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 27 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved the book, the characters engaged me and I wanted to know more about them. Ari the lead was a likable character and i liked the strength she has. I read the book within the day on a long train journey and downloaded the 2nd when i had chance. The small negative was in some instanes i felt i was reading the fifty shades trology but then a twist of plot brought me back to the book itself.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you are into romantic sexy mush this is for you
This book is all about sex and really not much else. So if you are looking for a gritty storyline then don't bother , but if you want a light hearted book to read this is for you.
