Love left me off its to-do list.

I date. I’m all for giving guys a chance. I’ve just never met the one.

Until on a spring morning in the English countryside, a tall, dark stranger emerges from the mist. Logan Steele is all tousled hair, hard chest and lips so perfect I want to reach out and touch them just to check they’re real. I’m sure that’s a thunderclap of chemistry I feel between us.

Did I mention he’s an Earl with a self-made fortune?

A billionaire who works tirelessly for charity?

And he’s so hot, watching him is like staring at the sun.

But like I said, love isn’t rooting for me.

When I find out Logan Steele is out to destroy everything I’ve dedicated my life to protect, the chemistry disappears and the hope that had blossomed my chest turns to rage.

It no longer matters that he quickens my pulse just saying my name, weakens my knees with a single touch and that he might just be the greatest kisser that ever lived.

I might believe in love but Logan Steele is definitely not the one.

A standalone romance.

Darcy Westbury is the sister of Ryder who we met in Duke of Manhattan. She loves her countryside lifestyle and is quite content within the village lifestyle. Strong independent and happy to absorb herself in running the estate in which she grew up in. Until she bumps accidentally into Logan Steele with his handsome face and she is drawn to him. He is also an Earl who dedicates some of his time to charity when he isn’t running his company in London. There’s a glimpse of chemistry between them on the first meeting but Darcy learns he’s out to destroy everything she’d worked so hard to protect. Her attraction for him soon turns into pent-up rage, enough to make him devastatingly infuriated. Darcy may feel like she wants to kiss him and she might believe in love, but Logan Steele is possibly all kinds of wrong for her.

Logan Steele, the Earl who mixes his living arrangements, spending his time in London working and his weekends in the countryside. He’s filthy rich and a hard-hitting businessman. Logan is the typical hot alpha that is very sure of himself and appealing to women. There’s never a lack of beauties that he snares for a one-time thing and never getting attached; however, Darcy exudes feelings in him that he never thought possible but he finds her so infuriatingly independent and beautiful which makes him somewhat drawn to her.

The characters are well developed, and I loved the sassiness of Darcy and her strength. I sensed a vulnerability about her which she covered up well with confidence and her driven attitude to fight for what she believed in always keeping Logan on his toes. Logan’s strong alpha persona you expect from Bay’s storytelling but underneath it all, I learnt he also had a vulnerable side to him.

I don’t want to give too much away, but I promise it’ll make you laugh, tear up and have you needing to take a cold shower because boy, was it hot and dirty! The chemistry and steam were in spades but not too much to ruin a very well spun tale. Submerged in the story, I completely forgot what was going on around me. I can also promise that you’ll have trouble putting it down, so one click only when you can give it your undivided attention. It’ll suck you in enough to make you think you’re actually in the countryside right alongside the characters. I loved the villagers and especially Darcy’s friend Aurora who was a great support to her, their friendship making me smile a lot. Aurora wanted to see her best friend happy and was quite vocal in what she thought Darcy should do about Logan. I can’t quite put into words how much I loved this story but it definitely deserves more than five stars. I loved the concept of something different given to the story. Bravo Ms. Bay for another fantastically written tale with a gorgeous cover to boot.
