After a long and exhausting day attending a mind-numbingly dull conference, all Dr. Lucinda `Luce' Myles wants to do is go to her hotel room, take off her shoes and have a long soak in the bath. However, on her arrival at The Royal Court Hotel, Luce is stunned when the snooty blonde receptionist behind the desk tells her that they cannot find her booking! As if trying to find somewhere to sleep for the night isn't bad enough, Luce has to contend with a barrage of phone calls and text messages from her hopeless family members who are all expecting her to organize the perfect Christmas for them! But just when she thinks that things cannot possibly get any worse in waltzes a face from the past Luce would much rather forget - Ben Hampton, who just happens be the owner of The Royal Court Hotel!
Luce and Ben had been at University together and they couldn't have been more different. Ben had been the life and soul of the party. Laid back, charming and drop dead gorgeous, Ben had every single female on campus lusting after him - including Luce! However, Ben was more interested in her flatmate than in her and had spent most of the time teasing her for always having her nose in a book and for being unable and unwilling to let her hair down and have some fun. Although many years have passed since the last time the two clapped eyes on one another, Luce immediately realizes that despite the designer suit and bulging business portfolio, Ben Hampton is still the same charismatic playboy who had broken every girl's heart at university.Read more ›
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
If you want a book with simmering attraction slowly building between two characters who think they have nothing in common then you might want to read this book.
Ben lives his life mainly out of the hotels his family owns and doesn't want commitment after what happened in his own past, so he has a one night stand rule.
Luce never gets any time to herself since she always seems to be the one always being responsible, putting others needs ahead of her own, so she has some long, big to do lists.
Ben and Luce get more then they bargin for when Ben trys to get her to relax and think about herself while Ben gets a rude awakening to his life and rules. There was also some interesting suprises in the book.
Harlequin Romance, Sep 3 2013, $5.99
A few days before Christmas, historian Lucinda Miles leaves Cardiff to give a lecture at a conference in Chester, England. Afterward her talk she goes to the Royal Court Hotel only to learn the conference coordinator failed to book her room as promised and no vacancies exist here or apparently anywhere else in town. Hampton & Sons hotel chain mogul Ben Hampton intercedes by offering to share the King James Suite, which contains two bedrooms. Having no choice, Luce accepts his kindness while thinking back to when he dated her roommate at college eight years ago while she hit the books.
Ben and Luce are attracted to each other; as he muses how he recalls her name but not her roommate and she recognizes his scar. However, Ben makes it clear that he is a one-night stand man and Luce knows how bad her history with men is. Snowed in, they begin to fall in love, but that may not be enough for her to loosen up and for him to take responsibility.
Stranded With The Tycoon is an entertaining romance with two engaging polar opposite protagonists and strong polar opposite supporting families (her flighty; his responsible). Readers will enjoy Sophie Pembroke delightful contemporary as love nukes what Ben and Luce respectively believed a relationship should be.
