AT HIS SERVICE – Suzanne Rock
Playboys of Boston, Book 1
St. Martin's Paperbacks
Boston – Present Day
Karin just wants to finish her internship with The Palazzo Hotel so she can get her degree and move on with her life. But The Palazzo is going downhill, and fast. The only thing that might save it from falling into complete ruin is the arrival of Leo Perconti—leader of the Perconti family and frequently referred to as “The General,” a testament to his bossy nature. While cleaning out the penthouse suite for his arrival, Karin finds herself in a very compromising situation, and Leo isn't about to let her go.
Leo's family is falling apart. Secrets are tearing them up, and the family fortune is gone. If he can't get The Palazzo back into the black, his family will have nothing left. It was supposed to be a straight forward visit. He planned to check on the state of the hotel, get his brother back on track as hotel manager, and move on, but there's something about Karin that has Leo distracted. More than just distracted, even...could this really be love?
AT HIS SERVICE is the perfect book for those who enjoy classic contemporary romance. Featuring a rich, Italian hotel owner with more secrets than days in a year, and a quiet but smart college student, this book has the classic formula for a popular romance. The heroine and hero misunderstand each other's intentions, and trust issues run rampant, leaving readers feeling a sense of déjà vu.
Despite any faults in this book, the hero and heroine both have their strong moments, and the secondary characters will give the reader hope to see the friends and siblings get their own happy endings in the future. Author Rock knows her way around a steamy bedroom scene, and when Karin and Leo get together—no one will be disappointed.
Be sure to keep an eye out for the second book in the series, FOR HIS PLEASURE, featuring Leo's younger sister Arianna, coming December 2015.
