A contemporary romance by Kyra Radcliff, An Unlikely Alliance has a billionaire masochist hero pitted against a strong and sensible heroine who is no shrinking violet.
As the mayor of Isle of Blissmore, Katherine James has no reason to kowtow to the obnoxious Tate Reilly but that’s exactly what she’s forced to do as she fights for her brother Keith’s wrongful imprisonment. As Tate forces her to work as his social secretary without being aware of her actual job status, Katherine is subjected to humiliation but once the adversaries take stock of each other and decide to be civil, flames begin to erupt as signs of attraction and desire makes itself known.
Kyra Radcliff writes stories that warms the cockles of one’s heart. An Uneasy Alliance is definitely a romance but there’s also a thread of sibling love that makes it a pleasure to read and enjoy. I loved the simple tit-for-tat game that Katherine forces upon Tate and what is more fun than having a handsome hero who is a billionaire but that he can also cook like a dream. In fact, most of books that I have read by the author has that theme of heroine not knowing the ABCD of cooking but it is the hero who is the master with pots and pans. The concept was a little hard to take in this book as in one scene it is shown that Katherine cannot even rustle up a decent sandwich even after being a caretaker of her brother.
The romance was stirring and the chemistry between the leads hot and potent. For toe-curling romance to cozy up during winter, An Uneasy Alliance is the perfect choice.
A bitter beginning that led to the sweetest ending…
The last thing small town mayor, Katherine James, wants is a call that her brother is behind bars. Not a good look. When she goes to see him, however, he swears that he’s innocent and is being framed by the brother of the woman he loves.
Set on doing whatever it takes to get her brother out of this horrific predicament without employing her powers as mayor, Katherine finds herself agreeing to a bizarre deal with the cunning and wickedly handsome Tate Reilly: Be his live-in social secretary for one month in exchange for dropping the charges against her brother.
Sounds easy enough, right?
But when a quiet, unassuming beauty falls under the command of an arrogant, hot-as-sin jerk, things are bound to get interesting. It’s not long before the searing attraction between the two threatens to consume them both.
Weeks later, when the tables turn and Tate finds himself on the other end of the stick this time around, Katherine throws him the same deal that he’d thrown her.
During their last deal, things had gotten far too hot and heavy to contain.
This time, their blazing passion just might burn the house down.
