Seduction by any means necessary…

Olivia Brent is happy with her quiet life in the country, until the imminent loss of her home forces her to embark on a search for her estranged father. Catapulted into a world of criminals, Olivia is out of her depth. When she meets the stunningly gorgeous and enigmatic billionaire Luc Severino, her world is turned upside down.

Jimmy Brent’s daughter was the last person Luc ever wanted to be with, but she’s the key to finding her father, the man Luc has wanted revenge on for over ten years. He’s willing to use any methods available, including blackmail, to persuade Olivia to help him find Jimmy and put the past behind him.

And if blackmail doesn’t gain her total cooperation, then perhaps a little seduction will…

4 - "It seemed like a good idea at the time." Stars!

Nina Croft has certainly developed her own inimitable style when it comes to writing contempory romance, and for me Blackmailed by the Italian Billionaire pretty much exemplifies what I am looking for from her with this kind of story.

This book has some Harlequin Presents vibe. What with the title, the billionaire with his penthouse, Ferrari, private jet & private island. it is an engrossing and passionate read. The writing style is pretty good and the plot very compelling with the mystery about Lia's father.

Blackmailed by the Italian Billionaire is well written with a nicely driven plot and an interesting hero. I would have given it 5 stars but for 2 reasons: the heroine is a little annoying and one dimensional and I felt a tad disconnected while reading.

Blackmailed by the Italian Billionaire by Nina Croft has a 90’s feel to it. A World before 911 when we all believed bad people could be changed by love.
