"Another Stuart gem"
Stuart never fails to mesmerize me whether in big books or
series romance. Her series works for Harlequin and
Silhouette are as wonderful a treat as her longer works.
In GLASS HOUSE, billionaire corporate raider Michael
Dubrovnik has bought all the old properties in the area in
New York City to create a huge glass building with modern
design. The only thing standing in his way is another
building of glass, this one owned by Laura de Kelsey
Winston. Unless her "house" comes down, his multi-million
dollar project can fall to ruin, and Michael will never
permit that to happen.
Laura loves her glass building, built with style and class
of a period gone by. It needs a lot of work, and it will
likely cost more money than she can swing, but she intends
Glass House will survive - in spite of Michael's high
powered pressure. When she refuses every offer he makes,
and states she will never leave Glass House to be
destroyed by Michael, he begins making her life a living
hell. First, he moves into the building so he is there to
constantly plague her. When seducing her doesn't work, he
tries taking down the old buildings surrounding her,
literally rattling the walls of the small glass building.
As their stormy battle of wills rage over the small
building in the way of his project, they find their
passion almost as strong as their determination.
Michael ???discover???s he is falling in love with Laura,
but is not will to let love rule him, and nearly kills her
in a bad construction accident. He must chose between his
high money project and her love, and Laura must decide
which is more important - hanging on to the past and its
traditions, or losing the man she loves.
There is a nifty little mystery about Laura and everyone
receiving blackmail attempts, which only serves to keep
the lively story moving with a fast pace. GLASS HOUSE is
another in the long line of Stuart's backlist just waiting
to be ?discover?ed.
