    • Rachael Thomas

      I grew up in the Midlands, but when I moved to Wales, over twenty years ago, I found a place to finally put down roots I married into a farming family and embarked on a massive learning curve which also saw me learning Welsh when my two children were small.Writing is something I have always wanted to do and I can still remember the thrill of one of my short stories being held up as an example to the class when I was about nine It wasn t until my own children were in school that I seriously started to pursue my dream I joined a local writing group which met every Monday afternoon and being with like minded people was the boost I needed.Reading romance had always been my first love, and just about every short story I wrote was romance, so I decided to write my first book During that process I also attended my first weekend writing course with Kate Walker and joined the RNA s fabulous New Writers Scheme A short time later I joined Romance Writers of Australia and learnt a lot from entering their competitions I sought out courses and you can imagine my joy when I discovered Sharon Kendrick s course in beautiful Tuscany.Behind the Scandalous Fa ade, my So You Think You Can Write entry, is my thirteenth book and although only eight have those magic words the end written on them the others are definitely part of the learning process I have enjoyed over the last six years.I love escaping to distant shores with my characters, entering their glamorous world and feeling all the emotions they experience as they discover their love for one another A love so strong it will overcome all obstacles eventually, leading to that promised happy ever after.

    • According to me a Prologue or the 1st Chapter of a book is THE reflection - SO it must capture my attention from page 1 I will continue a few more chapters to give the Book a fair chance to change my mind!SO Herewith my review! Harlequin books are just such fun reads, I think they scrutinize the authors work so many time - as Harlequin does have a certain standard to obtainI haven't read these types of books in ages - and I must admit I LIKED! - I received quite a few on Netgalley so I have quit [...]


    • ARC from Netgalley and Harlequin for honest review.3.75 Rating.Liev is a Russian Billionaire that came from a tragic childhood, but made something of himself. His goal is to be accepted into New York's elite society and seek revenge for a wrong done to his family. His key to achieve both is Bianca Di Sione. He uses the presence that he would like to hire her to promote his company, but Bianca has turned him down several times because she is too busy with the launch of something big for her broth [...]


    • They are both calculating cold blooded mercenary bitches! No truly! BOTH! They both seem to think it's ok to use sex as a barter and blackmail people.At the end of the day, they truly deserved each other, match made in hell!


    • My sloth win last night so I didn't write the review then. Now my German guy is not letting me remember all I'd planned to write 😓So I'll just list some issues:- The company ICE (forgive me if the company has another name, I've obviously forgotten by now) and its underhanded tactics ruined his father's company and practically killed both mom and dad. Why isn't he trying to ruin the people managing ICE back then instead of trying to ruin the current CEO (the h's bro)??*** I haven't read the ot [...]


    • Fabulous story and another instalment in the Billionaire's Legacy series which I am loving, this is Bianca Di Sione's story and when she is charged with the job of returning one of her dying grandfather's lost mistresses she meets her match in the form of Russian Live Dragunov who intends to exact revenge from the Di Sione family and Bianca is his ticket to that but the sparks fly when they meet in more ways than one.Bianca will do anything for her beloved grandfather but she is very much the co [...]


    • 2.75 starsWhile I usually enjoy fake fiancee books, I didn't care for this one. I just didn't like Liev, and I didn't buy his backstory. Instead of making him sympathetic, I thought it made him seem weak. And going to jail for 5 years for stealing a stale loaf of bread and potatoes? Even if it was in Russia, that seemed an unbelievably harsh sentence for a 13 year old. You'd like that at least he would have been given 3 squares a day, but that was never mentioned - only that he burned for reveng [...]


    • Underwhelming. Didn't feel a connection between heroine and hero. A lot of time was spent on the business.zzzzzring and didn't move the romance forward. There was a mystery involving the hero and heroine's past. Should not have been a mystery revealed later. I needed a reason to be interested in the heroine and hero, less info about them made me less interested in them. By the time the mystery was revealed I didn't care about the hero and heroine.


    • Review posted on Sept 22 2016 at Butterfly-o-Meter Books.In a Flutter: Good mix of tropes, but not that fun for meFluttering Thoughts:Worldbuilding: I didn’t really get much of a sense of a particular setting or social setup, though the story is set in New York high society(ish?). I didn’t get much of a sense of a particular world built, except the new-money versus older(er)-money kind of vibe that was mentioned.Characters: I’m terribly sorry to say that Bianca and Liev felt pretty flat to [...]


    • Snuggled up in a warm library so I had no distractions at home I was totally captured by Liev and his mission to singlehandedly bring down Bianca's brother in the business industry and destroy him.The best thing is that there was no pussy-footing around - Liev truly was after one thing and knowing Bianca was the only way to get to his goal he pursued her and when wine-ing and dining didn't work he went in for the kill so to speak and went after the one thing that mattered to Bianca.With no choic [...]

    • To Blackmail a Di Sione by Rachael Thomas is everything I love about Harlequin Presents novels: exotic settings, intense banter, a deeply flawed alpha hero, explosive chemistry, razor- sharp dialogues and a feisty and independent heroine!All Russian billionaire Liev Dragunov wants is to make the people who caused his family’s ruin to pay for their actions and what better way to instigate his revenge plot than by using Bianca Di Sione, the sister of his enemy! Though Bianca snubs him at first, [...]

    • "When you've finished making offers for the bracelet, I have a proposition for you." Billionaire Liev Dragunov has spent a lifetime plotting revenge against those responsible for his family's ruin. Finally, he has the way: Bianca Di Sione. She's denied their obvious attraction and coolly rebuffs every request to work for him—until he finds her weakness: a diamond Lady Mistress bracelet she desperately needs for her beloved grandfather! Bianca must become his fake fiancée if she wants her trin [...]


    • Started off real good - and had potential to be awesome especially given the reason Liev wanted revenge on the Di Sione family. But everything was left to the end and just fell flat even the moment when the Heroine finds out the truth behind the Hero's interest in her family kinda left me a bit bummed. And the making up was almost 2 pages later! Should have been at least a couple of chapters with plenty more angst


    • This is the third installment in The Billionaire Legacy and this one left me speechless. I couldn’t believe what was going on in this story. This story was interesting and I couldn’t put it down. I needed to know what was going to happen between Bianca and Liev. I wanted to know how far he would go but also how far she would go in order to get the bracelet that her grandfather wanted. Liev’s story was interesting and I was saddened for him for what he went through. But no matter what he ma [...]

    • Wowee for a story of revenge, blackmail, fake engagements and long lost family secrets, this book turned out to be a real snoozefest.The main guy, let's call him, Mr. Russia, was super duper serious. When he wasn't thinking seriously revengey thoughts he was leering at the heroine, lets call her Miss Business woman. Miss Business Woman had given up on dating and men because of a bad prom date. I am really not making this up. So she sauntered around in a sexy yet businesslike way and the only thi [...]


    • Bianca Di Sione is the next one sent on a mission for her grandfather to find a missing bracelet part of "the lost mistresses".

    • You can find more reviews Mademoisellesnow BlogI read this one just as I finished another in its series. I just found out that this series each book is written by a different author. I didn’t really enjoy this book. The characters didn’t jump out for me, they didn’t have that much chemistry between each other and didn’t really catch my attention like other books in its series. I was a little disappointed with this book.


    • "Tom Blackmail a Di Sione" by Rachel Thomas is a wonderful, quick read. Liev Dragonov promises avenge his family's downfall and their untimely deaths. Bianca Di Sione comes into his life when he manages to set her up at an auction to outbid her for a bracelet she wants. There is a method to this whole madness as Liev arranges for Bianca to become his 'fake' fiance, and how he is trying to get information out of her. What he didn't plan on was for his feelings to become more than revenge.


    • I liked Liev at times, like when he's sweet and considerate, ‘if you continue with this, I am not going to remember your inexperience and will lose all control.’ He looked down at her, his arms braced as he held his upper body above her, but still his erection pressed against her." I liked this book, I liked Liev.


    • 3rd part of an 8 part series, each book so far has been excellent as a stand alone. The heroine Bianca is strong and vulnerable at the same time she seems to have many parts to her character and makes a great heroine for the troubled hero Liev, well worth a read, superb plot and storyline.


    • Bianca would do anything for her ailing grandfather while Liev has a score to settle with Bianca's brother.It is a battle between clashing winds and intertwining love. Gets annoying for a bit in places but a pleasant story altogether.


    • This book was kind of blah for me. I didn't get attached to the characters at all and really didn't care what happened to them. The romantic tension was decent but that was about it.



    • Liev and Bianca have some serious issues from their pasts to deal with - and those issues get all tangled up in this story. A fun read!
