Book Review + Giveaway: "Priceless" by Raine Miller

Author: Raine Miller 
Ivan Everley13th Baron Rothvale, would admit he's the last person on earth who should have custody over a priceless collection of art. British law affords him the title of 'Lord,' but underneath all the trappings he's just a regular guy, despite being a world champion in archery, and certain...proclivities of a private nature. But Ivan's public celebrity is merely a sham--a carefully guarded secret borne out of the pain of betrayal. Even his cousin Ethan Blackstone doesn't know the truth behind the man he considers a brother. 

Lord Rothvale has a plethora of problems piled up to his aristocratic eyeballs, but that doesn't stop him from complicating his world further when a beautiful art conservationist shows up to appraise his inherited collection of paintings. Once Ivan gets a taste of Gabrielle Hargreave, mistaken identity or not, he can't think of anything but how good the green-eyed beauty felt in his arms. 

The chase is on, and Ivan's dominant side isn't taking 'no' for an answer--but yet, Gabrielle might just teach our discontented lord a thing or two about life, and about himself, and help them both discover the undeniable truth in what it means to find something genuinely... priceless.

I’ve read and enjoyed the Blackstone Affair books, but Priceless was a homerun for me. Ivan Everley has stolen my heart!!! In true Raine Miller fashion, this book was beyond amazing and proved to be a fantastic opening to what I know will be a phenomenal series!

“Oh, this was priceless.”

It sure was, and in more way than one! I loved how Raine Miller incorporated the book’s title with the plot. LOVED it. There’s just no other way to describe the things that happened. How Ivan and Gaby met (epic and hot!), what went on between them, the art……everything. It was all brilliantly executed. Very, very clever. The story line definitely kept me turning the pages, wanting to find out what could possibly happen next.

“After all, when you love a person, and they love you back, just about any storm can be weathered.”

There was so much profound emotion surrounding these characters. They both had pasts that had clearly scarred them emotionally, but Ivan was a man on a mission and he wasn’t going to let Gabrielle slip through the cracks. Nope. Not this girl. He wanted to prove to her, one way or another, that they deserved a chance despite having started things off on the wrong foot. Boy, did they ever!

Gaby had her doubts regarding Ivan's intentions and I understood why. I mean, he was a Lord who basically had anything and everything he could ever want or need, while Gaby was a normal girl from California. But at the same time, I also fully understood just why Ivan could not stop thinking about her. He wanted her – he craved her – like no other woman…ever. And yes, he definitely proved to her that he wasn’t the man she thought him to be.

“There had been hints as we’d begun this tryst, but now, I knew for certain that my dream girl did, in fact, exist.”

Ivan’s alpha side was simply delicious. He did not take “no” for an answer. What he wanted, he got, but he also knew that he had to work his way into Gaby’s heart and life. She wasn’t like any of the other girls he was used to. She was different and that was just one of the many reasons why he needed her in his life. Once Gaby gave into the inevitable, the fireworks began. These two were explosive together. LOVED them. I truly did. Gaby and Ivan were amazing characters and I’m so glad I finally got to read their story…or the beginning of it, at least.

Overall, Priceless is a spin-off that should not be missed. It has everything an exceptional romance novel should have – passion, drama, humorous banter, great characters, a captivating plotline, and so much more!  I am desperately waiting for book two because I need to read more about Gaby and Ivan. These two have captured my heart. 

Five outstanding stars!

Raine Miller has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too! Granted Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. A former teacher, she's now writing sexy romance stories full time. She has a handsome prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons to pull her back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. Her sons know she likes to write stories, but gratefully have never asked to read any, thank God! Raine loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books.
