A funny, slick novel filled with strong personalities — what more do you need? This first entry in the House of Kings series will definitely ensure that readers return for the next brother (fingers crossed it’s Xavier!). This is a quick and entertaining read.
Heiress Victoria Gregory likes to control all aspects of her life, including her fiancé, Marcus. After attending his bachelor party at Eamon King’s Vegas nightclub, Marcus is off his leash and he leaves Victoria at the altar. Her first reaction is to sue Eamon for alienation of affection, but when she meets him, the sparks that these two generate is eye-popping. They literally can’t keep their hands to themselves. Victoria has been raised with privilege and Eamon is a self-made success so he’s not intimidated at all. (KIMANI/ARABESQUE, Jun., 322 pp., $6.99)
