Bayou Billionaires #3
Catherine Mann

Harlequin Desire 

Is it a real reunion, or one for the cameras? It's a second-chance romance from USA TODAY bestselling author Catherine Mann! 

Football star Henri Reynaud won't let his career go down without a fight. If the only way to win is to reconcile with his estranged wife, he'll do what it takes. But spending time with Fiona Harper-Reynaud isn't just some ruse. The sultry beauty belongs in his bed.

Fiona doesn't know where her sexy husband's public act ends and his real feelings begin. Can she afford to fall a second time for the man every female wants? One thing is undeniable—their attraction has never flared hotter!

First of all, let me say that I love the Bayou Billionaires. I've read the first two books and loved each. They are sexy and fun. Of course, I have read other books by authors of these books, so I knew that these were going to be great.

Now, I have to comment on the hot guy on the cover. Ooo La La, but I think Harlequin has never ever ever watched football. This guy is not a football player, at least not American football. Though I could see him playing soccer, move over Beckham.

I liked that this installment is about fixing up a broken relationship. Part of the reason for this is of a more serious nature. Fiona has the breast cancer/ovarian cancer gene and she opts for surgery to prevent getting the cancer that killed her mom and grandmother, as well as her aunt. She's a frustrating heroine though. Seriously, I could have smacked her a few times, or given her a good shake, especially since she had such a great husband.

Of course, in some ways her actions can be justified. She's scared. She doesn't want Henri hurting if she gets sick. However I can't figure out how she can continually push him away when he wants to be with her, to help her. It was pretty obvious his actions were from love and not pity.

Harlequin is known for its alpha males, and once again I was pleasantly surprised to find a hero that wasn't alpha. Henri was pretty close to perfect. Anyone would want to be married to him.

You will see the ladies from the other books too, I love Erika and Adelaide. The really played a great role in this story, being supportive of Fiona

I totally loved this book!

As an aside I would love to see this topic tackled in a romance where the characters weren't wealthy.
