The Heir Apparent by Tere Michaels is a love story and a mystery steeped in cutthroat corporate politics. Set in New York City, it features the author’s usual flawless writing and likable, engaging characters. My one problem centered on the whodunit aspect of the mystery, which was telegraphed with some heavy-handed clues – to the point where I wondered at the characters’ inability to see the obvious. However, that didn’t reduce my enjoyment in everything else, including the good chemistry between the main ...more

Second, our heroes are strong individuals with real emotional issues who have great chemistry. The book’s comedy comes from Lucky and Bo’s good-natured struggles to get the upper hand in ...more

In only 18,000 words, the author gives us an unforgettable viewpoint character, a strongly appealing love interest, a twisty and exciting plot, a hot sex scene, and some scorching sexual chemistry. What stands out for me most from the story’s multiple strong points is how smart and funny the main characters are. Our hero might start out as a kidnapping victim, but he never stops ...more

Tony is the responsible son towing the burden of the family operated business and has sacrificed his personal life for the business. Phoenix is a strong woman and a survivor.
