Tycoon and playboy Theron Anetakis has a plan.  Since deciding to help his brother by taking over Anetakis International’s New York office, Theron has come to the conclusion that he is reading to settle down.  Having looked at several young women of good standing and important families, he has decided to marry a nice Greek girl and start a family.  His future bride has been selected and all he has to do is propose.  Theron’s plans are falling in place until he receives notice that his family’s ward is on her way to New York for a visit.  Theron figures he can show her to her hotel and then forget about her. 

Isabella Caplan, his ward, has other plans.  She is in New York for a reason and it isn’t just to see the sights from her hotel room.  She has her heart set on making Theron Anetakis fall in love with her.  She knows he finds her attractive – but making him act on his attraction is much harder.  Bella’s independence screams ‘rebel’ and clash horribly with Theron’s old world Greek values.  Bella knows she has her work cut out for her.  She just doesn’t expect it to be so hard to become The Tycoon’s Rebel Bride.

The Tycoon’s Rebel Bride is excellent.  I was intrigued by Theron after reading The Tycoon’s Pregnant Mistress and I wanted to know what made this man tick and act the way he does.  Fortunately, what made him tick was also the best thing to ever come into his life – Bella Caplan.  She is a charming, somewhat irreverent vixen who knew what she wanted and was willing to sacrifice everything to get it.  She wanted Theron.  Failure wasn’t an option.  Their love scenes were steamy hot but romantic.  Theron’s world was turned upside down by this enigmatic and beautiful woman.  I loved watching his head spin with the intense emotions and the internal fight he was having of loving Bella but wanting to do ‘the right thing’. 

Maya Banks could write a novel on toilet paper and I would read it. She could write a novel on the sidewalk and I would knock people out of the way to read it.  Her ability to take me away to the world of her characters thrills me every single time I read one of her books.  Bold, beguiling and thoroughly enchanting, The Tycoon’s Rebel Bride will make you sweat, sigh, and maybe even get teary eyed.  Most of all, it will make you feel.  I can’t ask for a better read than that and so I joyfully recommend The Tycoon’s Rebel Bride.  Do NOT miss it!
