Lucy Davenport made a promise to her father and husband right before they died and she's vowed to keep it at any cost. But when she draws unwanted attention to her secret plans, she's forced to risk everything she's kept guarded. Because the man standing in her way threatens not only her goal, but the walls she's carefully constructed around her heart.
Keats McCall is an environmental preservationist navigating the globe on behalf of heritage protection. When he catches Lucy at his latest project, he suspects she's up to no good. She's secretive, sexy as hell--and has trouble written all over her. He devises a plan to keep her close so he can keep an eye on her. But what he isn't prepared for is just how close he wants to get.
Although this is the second book in the series it can be read as a stand alone and well, I might just have to read the first book because of its loveable characters.
This was a great read and it was a great short read indeed! I think it’s a novella for this whole series but all is great! I absolut... ...more

Let's get one thing straight, when I started Risky Surrender I didn't really know what the story was about. I kind of glanced at the book blurb, but I didn't really paid attention to the blurb. However, I saw that it was written by Robin Bielman, and I have loved the sto... ...more

A Robin Bielman book never disappoints, which always makes picking up one of hers an absolute treat.

It had an intriguing plot. Nice story and the chemistry wasn’t bad either. When you met Keats, a man with his suspicions and a past,(even if it’s a rich one), you kind of knew he was going to feel something for Lucy, even though he was a little bit suspicious of her when he first met her on the b... ...more
