BILLIONAIRE’S SECRET (4.5) by Chantelle Shaw: Nightmares from a near-fatal fire have kept billionaire financier Nicolo Chatsfield behind the crumbling walls of his childhood home. An errand for her boss, the new CEO of Chatsfield Hotels, sends Sophie Ashdown to Chatsfield House. The brooding Chatsfield heir, who Sophie finds disturbingly attractive, refuses to do her or her boss’ bidding. The English countryside and a ramshackle estate are perfect backdrops for Shaw’s gothic-tinged Chatsfield page-turner. The romance stars a tormented, tragic hero and an optimistic heroine who cheats death. The plot captivates, the narrative is seamless and the love scenes sizzle.
