BLURB "Once upon a time, there was a girl who dressed up and went to a big party at the palace. When she was there, she met a prince. They danced and fell in love…”

Damn good line. Too bad I don’t believe a word of it anymore.

My name is Claire Montgomery...and I’m not a princess. I’m a fighter. I worked hard to earn my place on the emergency image repair team for one of the biggest public relations companies in the country. We’ve been called to the renowned Chicago headquarters of Stone Global Corporation, where it’s our job to clean up a heap of the Stone family’s filthiest laundry. Our success will be the biggest victory of my career. I’m on my game. I’m ready.

Why doesn’t “ready” include a contingency plan for Killian Stone?

My name is Killian Stone...and they call me the “Enigma of Magnificent Mile." That’s just the way I like it. Elite tycoons want into my bank account. Their wives and daughters want into my pants. They’ll all do anything for a piece of the enigma—until a crack in the castle is too huge for anyone to ignore. What they all don’t know is that I’m thrilled about the fissure. Their fascination with the scandal means nobody will look at the bigger secret of the Stone family. I’m safe.

Until Claire Montgomery walks through my doors.

Her honesty, her bravery, her humor…they pull me in, a prism against the gray walls of my tower. I’m captivated. For the very first time, I long to shed the enigma. To share my secret. But what the hell will that get me? Even if she fits the slipper I offer…I’m no Prince Charming.

My Rating: 4.5
Very rich, very sexy, very selective of his women and very much becoming obsessed with Claire. That is how I would describe Killian Stone. Running a multi-million dollar corporation is what Killian does day by day, but being the youngest of three brothers he doesn't always want the responsibility that comes with it. Having one of his older brothers gracing the front pages of the rag magazines is not something he needs right now. Killian is working hard on getting his brother's scandal taken care of and that means hiring one of the best PR firms in the country. What he didn't expect was the redheaded angel that walked into his life and turned him inside out. Claire is there to work, not get involved with the man that hired her soon to be step-mothers company. Denying what she wants gets harder and harder for Claire, and Killian is not a man to give up on what he wants. Secrets and lies are flying around these two all the time making what they want almost impossible, but when a man is as determined as Killian is to win his hearts desire nothing is impossible for long.
