He’s Enigmatic, Dangerously Handsome, and completely off-limits…

The women who vacation on Mr. Rook’s exclusive island are looking for one thing and one thing only: to have their wildest romantic fantasies come to life. Pirates, cowboys, billionaires—there’s nothing Rook’s staff can’t deliver.

But when Stephanie Fitzgerald’s sister doesn’t return after her week in paradise, Stephanie will have to pose as a guest in order to dig for answers. Unfortunately, this means she’ll need to get close to the one thing on the island that’s not on the menu: the devastatingly handsome and intimidating Mr. Rook. And he’s not about to give the island’s secrets away.


I received a free copy of this audiobook from Orange Sky Audio through in exchange for an honest review.

This book was not what I expected.  While it is labeled Romantic Suspense I found that it more fell into the suspense category.   Stephanie is determined to find her sister who went missing after a trip to Mr. Rooks Island.  A secret island that very few know about.  It isn't on any map and no government claims ownership but if you are in the know and have the cash you could find yourself fulfilling your every desire.  Stephanie bargains her way onto the island to find our more about what happened to her sister and who the mysterious owner of the island is.  

Mr. Rook is an elusive character with not a lot known about him, other than he is drop dead gorgeous and lives a very reclusive life.  I was a bit turned off by Stephanie's constant irritating attitude, which I guess should not be unexpected given she thinks Mr. Rook is responsible for her sisters death but it got to be tedious.  The mysteries of the island are fascinating and intriguing and while this didn't have the panty dropping romance that most associate with romance books there is definitely a spark kindled and more questions to be answered.  

The narrator easily held my attention and I found I was drawn into the story and the mystery.
