The stain of a negative family history
is something Taurus Ramsey is used to but it still doesnít
help deaden the pain of his parents being murdered. A needed
break with his sibling sends Taurus back into the arms of a
woman he could never forget. Evenings spent in the arms of
Nile Becquois, were filled with heated trysts that neither
could forget. Nile is a woman with a dark past that
continues to haunt her waking moments. Using the pain to
create art pieces whose proceeds funds her charity efforts
Nileís keeps her focus on where she can help. She doesnít
waste her time dreaming of white picket fences, things like
that donít happen to the offspring of vile men.
Proving to Nile that they have a future
means everything to Taurus but her secret just might derail
any hope they have of being a couple. A secret so explosive
even love might not be enough.
Before I get into how much I really
enjoyed the latest installment of the Ramseyís saga, I have
to give a mini public service announcement. Itís not a great
idea to start a series on book six and expect to really
understand the background dynamics. With that said, I was
pleasantly surprised to find A Loverís Beauty, was so
intriguing that my lack of knowledge of the players and
previous stories didnít prevent my complete enjoyment.
Taurus Ramsey and the rest of his family seem to have one
fire after another to put out but they were ready and
willing to protect their family. Taurusí attraction to Niles
was heated but I also liked how at times it came across as
mellow. He took his time and took into consideration how
skittish Niles was.
AlTonya Washington really pushed the
envelope with the backdrop of the story, which included but
was not limited to, human trafficking. The shock factor and
intrigue added to the appeal of A Loverís Beauty.
Nile and Taurus together are pretty explosive but Iíve come
to expect that from an AlTonya Washington novel. Iím really
interested in seeing how the final book will tie up some
loose ends between the families and I hope to have the other
stories read and finished just in time to enjoy the finale
of a series that is overflowing with drama, intrigue and
