The last thing she expected was a billionaire under the mistletoe …
As a trauma surgeon, Isabelle Rockwell has devoted her life to helping others. Her life is too crazy for romance…despite a powerful attraction to a stranger during an unexpected layover in Italy. But there’s no time to obsess over the mystery man. Recurring dreams of her mother are calling her home to the family lodge, where a surprise guest is staying for the holidays—who else but her airport hottie!
Battling a takeover, billionaire Lyle Guero has been asked by his board of directors to lay low. What better place than Rocky Peak Lodge, his latest silent investment, home to the woman who’s haunted his thoughts since Rome? Independent, fascinating, equally career-focused, she’s the perfect temporary distraction.
But he didn’t count on the holiday spirit, the zany Rockwell family, or the danger lurking in the snowy shadows of the Cascades. How far will two renegade hearts go for a chance at love?
The Renegade, is the 3rd book in the Rockwell Legacy series (and I can’t believe I missed the 2nd book in the series *face palm*) and is the story of the only female sibling in the Rockwell family – it’s also a standalone; it’s also one that I thoroughly enjoyed!
Isabelle Rockwell is a wonderful female heroine – she is brainy, street smart but also has a compassionate side that somehow balances out her personality in a way that makes her all the more loveable.
Lyle Guero is a billionaire who just faced the most epic betrayal of his life – the one person who he thought as the only family just pretty much an all and out war to take away everything he has worked hard for! When he has to lay low, he decides to visit a resort with an ulterior motive – to go after the one who got away in Rome.
Isabelle and Lyle have quite the chemistry – they are opposites in the way they actually emote – while Isabelle handles emotions in a way that is open; Lyle is more closed off than she had expected – but when she realizes that it is a consequence of his upbringing, she does her best to teach him the way a true family supports each other.
I read this in one sitting – because I honestly couldn’t actually stop until Isabelle and Lyle got their HEA – and let me just go back to read book 2 till I wait for the next sibling to get their HEAs 😉
