Dark, tortured, and intimidating, these dominant billionaires will steal their innocent heroines’ breath away. Overwhelmed by their desire to control their world, they push their heroines to explore their deepest desires. But even the most unworldly of heroines can unlock these billionaires’ secrets.

Xavier De Santis: Disgraced. Ruinous. Playboy.

The headlines are always shouting about Xavier’s various excesses, and he’s everything they say he is. But now he’s gone too far, and the black sheep of the De Santis family has been ordered to clean up his image. Volunteering at a homeless shelter, he sees a bright light amidst all the bleakness. An angel whose luminous face and tragic beauty call to him in ways he can’t explain.

Mia: Vulnerable. Homeless. Virgin.

When the shelter Mia calls home closes, she is left with nowhere to go – nowhere except for the luxurious, glorious palace of a home that Xavier De Santis has invited her to stay. This too-handsome billionaire is dark, dangerous – and also too good to be true. But surely Mia can indulge in her fantasies and escape the drudges of her daily life for just one night?

As one night turns into two, Mia knows that eventually, the magic will end and she will have to return to her life of hardship. She can’t keep the beautiful clothes. She can’t keep the soft bed. And most of all, she can’t keep the hard, handsome, brutal man who makes her crave his touch with every breath she takes. Mia doesn’t belong in his world. But as Xavier tempts his rags-to-riches heroine with exquisite pleasure and heady desire, Mia doesn’t stand a chance but to surrender completely to him.

Ivy's review

-Love me some smutty fairy tale romance. It’s right in the series title, so I had some expectations and boy, they were met. In spades.

-Good chemistry which helped me buy into a highly implausible scenario

-That said, I think Mia’s homeless situation was handled very well and I don’t believe that the relationship is rushed in pursuit of the HEA.

-This ticks alot of fantasy boxes for me, with possessive, protective hero, willful heroine who’s suffered her share and the obstacles they overcome make it work. These are things that need a deft hand to make it all gel, and Ms. Ashenden’s writing was on point. If I had a quibble…

-The final big obstacle was a bit contrived, and made me a bit angry at Xavier, but it’s a fairy tale, so I appreciate the need for a bit of that tension.

-Wraps up nicely and I want to see more of the DeSantis brothers.

If you love a good old fashioned fairy tale that brings the feels AND smut for your reading pleasure, I would recommend this.
