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 absolutely ...more

Risky Surrender by Robin Bielman was a good read. It was different than the other books I have read lately because the hero and heroine’s jobs were not what I typically read about.

This is the fifth book I have read by Robin Bielman and the fifth I have given 5 stars. She never fails to bring a man to fall head-over-heels in love with and a lady you would want as your best friend. Keats McCall and Lucy Davenport are exactly this.

Whilst it can be read as a standalone, I had rea ...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 storie ...more

Lucy Davenport isn’t a thief; she’s a “treasure hunter.” Okay, maybe there’s a fine line in there somewhere, but still, is it stealing when no one knows it’s there? Well, in a protected historical site, yes, it’s quite illegal, and Keats McCall, president of field operations for the World Heritage F ...more

A Robin Bielman book never disappoints, which always makes picking up one of hers an absolute treat. Risky Surrender was a read that got stronger as it went on - the first chapter or so didn't completely captivate me, but soon that was overturned, and I couldn't flip the pages fast enough.

All Lucy Davenport, archeologist, wants to do is fulfill the promise she made to her father and husband before they died in a Guatemalan cave two years ago.

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 boat ...more
