THE COSTARELLA CONQUEST
THE COSTARELLA CONQUEST (3) by Emma Darcy: Jake Freedman has spent decades plotting the demise of his nemesis, and he’s close, but what he didn’t expect was to find the man’s daughter so utterly alluring. Laura Costerella has only known disdain from her father, so when he announces that his associate is coming to dinner, she’s ready for the worst. What she gets is a punch to her libido in her attraction to Jake. The intriguing plot and heartening characters are enjoyable, as is the readable narrative, even if it occasionally loses its flow.
