The S-Factor: Simmering & Sensual


Rhiannon Davies's plan was to reunite her late friend's baby with the infant's Greek father, then return home…alone. Instead Lukas whisks them away to his private island! Soon Rhiannon falls under the spell of the sun, sea—and the ruthless tycoon himself. Caught up in a wave of desire for the devastatingly handsome Lukas, she finds herself agreeing to marriage—with a man who has made it clear he'll never love her….

Review: ♥♥♥♥♥

Kate is another new author for me and an exceptional one at that with this almost "Greek Tragedy"! At times, this was painful to read as Lukas struggled with his emotions and refused to love! He is a magnificent Greek alpha, shoulders his entire family's problems and always rises to the cause and takes responsibility for their misconduct.

The first few chapters are intense due to the fact that both characters, Lukas and Rhiannon are immediately drawn to each other. The air sizzles and crackles between them from the very beginning. When Rhiannon contacts Lukas it's for an urgent reason.....she is the ward of an old friend’s infant daughter, Annabel, who recently passed away. Her friend told her Lukas is the father and because of her past upbringing she feels it's important for the infant to be with family. She knows what it's like not to belong as she was adopted and never felt loved. Love is the most important thing to Rhiannon and she hopes someday to find it.

Lukas figures out that the Annabel's father is his nephew Christos, an uncaring, spoiled playboy. No matter at what cost, Lukas is going to take responsibility for this child and claims her as family. However, he demands until matters are settled that Rhiannon accompany them to Greece.

Sparks, sensual tension, all of it and more flare up between this couple. As the days go on, Rhiannon realizes that she loves this baby girl, she fights her attraction for Lukas and worries what the outcome will be.....should she allow this dysfunctional family to be involved in raising Annabelle? Should she stay in Greece to be close to this child she has grown to love and how will she deal with her feelings that are growing for Lukas?

The passion, the heat, the tension and the heartache that encompass this couple will have you in tears. Kate Hewitt sincerely has a "winner" with The Greek Tycoons Convenient Bride; it's an exceptional story and will make you believe in love and happy endings!
