Special-needs teacher Kayla Johnston writes off any shot at New Year's Eve romance when she's summoned to a fundraising event for her school at the remote estate of a wealthy would-be-donor. But when a massive snowstorm hits and Kayla careens off the road, the sexy stranger who rescues her brings to mind cozy fireplaces and steamy midnight kisses…among other things.
Reclusive entrepreneur Ryan Langford may be missing his own fundraiser, but being marooned in a cabin with Kayla beats ducking a room full of people after his money any day. Too bad she's so irritated with the gazillionaire who ruined her New Year's Eve that he feels like he has to lie about his identity. But when the sparks fly and they fall into each other's arms, Ryan knows he's made a big mistake. Will she be able to trust him once the snow melts and the truth comes out?

Thoughts:


Melting the Millionaire's Heart is a snowed in romance.  It takes place around the New Year’s Eve, which I remember as I was in my 20’s used to be my favorite time of the year.  It gave me an excuse to go out and party, but now that I’m older and have kids, it gives me a reason to let them stay up later and have our own party.  

In this book, Ryan Langford is used to people schmoozing up to him for money. When he finds out that his beautiful passenger is a teacher at Horizons his guard goes up. As he listens to Kayla voice her displeasure of the fundraising event and of the wealthy philanthropist at the center of it, he's instantly intrigued. Not wanting to break the spell too quickly, he decides it's best if he introduces himself under a different name, so Ryan becomes RJ. As they get to know one another, their initial attraction flares red-hot. He's single, she's single, they both want each other, so why not enter into a one night, and no strings attached indulgence? After their night together, he knows he needs to come clean about his true identity, and he hopes she can forgive his deception.

I enjoyed the story up until the point their night together ended. No woman likes to be lied to, however I don't think that engaging in a one night stand with a complete stranger should come with the stipulation of complete honesty about names and professions. It's not like he had an underhanded motive to deceive her. In her mind, Ryan was no better than her sneaky, lying basterd of an ex-fiancĂ©. For a smart woman, that was a really lousy comparison. Her stubbornness to not listen to Ryan, to not accept his apology and even to go so far as to question the truthfulness of his revelation about having an autistic brother made her very unlikeable very quickly. 

I really liked this book not only because it deals with a special needs teacher and that’s what I do for a living, but how the author took time to let the character’s get to know each other before hopping into the love making scenes.    Even though Ryan did lie about who he truly was, I think in the end she should hear him out.  It’s obvious that she truly cared about him and was starting to let herself fall in love.

I rate this book 5/5  I LOVED IT!!!
