The S-Factor: Sizzling!

Marina Lucchesi: tall, awkward and unschooled in the lessons of seduction, she has a score to settle to save her brother from ruin.

Ronan Carlisle: rich, handsome and a legendary lover of women, he wants revenge. As Ronan presents it, the strategy is simple: if Marina poses as his mistress, he’ll ensure that the man who has brought both of them misery gets his just deserts. But as Marina sees it, it’s a crazy plan. Why would Ronan, one of Australia’s wealthiest and most eligible tycoons, want her?

However, she’s not in a position to refuse Ronan’s offer…or able to resist the overwhelming physical attraction that pulses between them…

All I can say is that author, Annie West has a brilliant career ahead of her if A Mistress for the Taking is any indication. This is Marina and Ronan's story set in beautiful Australia and full of passion, I guarantee!

Marina has taken care of her family for most of her life. Over the past year she and her father were in an accident, one in which she injures her leg and her father dies. This leaves Marina and her brother to run the family business in which her brother makes very bad choices and they stand to loose it because he gambled it away. Marina confronts the ruthless Mr. Wakefield, the man who has stolen it only to be embarrassed at a cocktail party attended by the rich and famous.

However, she is rescued by the tall, dark and very mysterious Ronan. Ronan has a plan, a plan to help Marina and gain revenge on the man who has brought pain to one of his family. He is also very drawn and attracted to Marina and talks her into portraying his mistress. However, the tables are turned on both Marina and Ronan as neither of them counts on their own attraction for each other.

Their journey in finding each other and love will absolutely take your breath away. Congratulations to Ms. Annie west on her first Modern Romance, it was a fabulous read!

I am SO looking forward to this book. I have sneaked a read of chapter one but am saving it to treat myself as soon as this wip is finished. I have a date with Mistress for the Taking next week. Can't wait!
