Review: ♥♥♥♥♥

Anne McAllister's latest Harlequin Presents, Savas' Defiant Mistress is pure romantic brilliance! Moving, witty, fast-paced and simply fantastic, this is one book you will not be able to put down!

Sebastian Savas needs a bolt hole to retire to in order to escape from his family's incessant chatter when they all swoop in on him for their sister's Vangie's wedding. Sebastian is desperate for some silence and some time to relax and when one of his colleagues informs him that he's thinking of selling his houseboat, he buys the property sight unseen and sets off towards his refuge, unaware that his sanctuary is already occupied by a woman whom he absolutely cannot stand: Neely Robson.

Neely is less than pleased when she finds out that her dream home has been bought by the one man whom she just cannot stand the sight of. Neely had worked with Sebastian before and the arrogant Greek had dismissed her designs as being too girly and pink! Sebastian might be the new owner of the houseboat, but Neely is not about to let him bully her out of her home. But will the fiery designer be able to cope with living with the man she purports to despise?

Thrown together by fate, Neely and Sebastian soon find themselves getting used to one another. As their mutual dislike gives way to a sizzling attraction which they cannot deny, Neely and Sebastian find themselves giving in to temptation.

But both Neely and Sebastian had sworn off relationships. However, when they realize that sexual attraction has developed into love, will they be strong enough to let go of their insecurities and just leap headlong into everlasting romance?

Refreshingly original, wonderfully moving and fabulously absorbing, Savas' Defiant Mistress is another Anne McAllister classic! Fall in love with feisty and independent Neely and gorgeous but guarded Seb in this amusing, enthralling and thoroughly captivating romance by this RITA award-winning author!
