Thoughts:


Rich, handsome and successful, Blake Law Barrington is a member of an old established banking family. Following the footsteps of his ancestors, his days are spent behind the scenes making deals that decide the fates of nations and monarchies. Cold, unemotional and ruthless, what he wants, he always gets and he wants Lana, but only on his terms. Snatching her from the clutches of a despicable man, he pays double the price she was asking and considers her his living, breathing doll to be dressed, shaped and molded to his exact specifications. His reward, unlimited access to her body, all of her time and her complete attention to him. Only he never considered she would change him,enthrall him and soften him instead. Can he change his life's path to keep her forever or is the chains of his environment too strong to break?

Beautiful, innocent and desperate, Lana Bloom has only one thing to sell to help her dying mother: her virginity to the highest bidder. Beginning her search for an appropriate buyer by using the gossip from her work, her initial foray into the rich man's world with a potential buyer was detoured when Blake doubled the asking price. Now, she has her money and her mother has the experimental treatment she needs. But she never suspected relinquishing her virginity would begin an introduction into a sensuous, consuming and emotional life for which she had never prepared. Dreams she wants to spin, a future she wants to plan, and a heart she wants to give cannot be realized because this interlude of her life has a finite date and suddenly, she has an unexpected complication. Evil has come knocking on her door,literally forcing her to leave. Will she survive her broken heart or is her future as bleak as she imagines?

I really enjoyed how the author developed Blake from being so cold and ruthless to the beginnings of a softer emotional side. Lana also spread her wings from a frightened, naive and vulnerable girl to a woman aware of her sensuality and strength. 

I can't wait to finish the series!!!
