Priceless Book Cover Priceless
Rothvale Legacy #1
Raine Miller

Ivan Everley, 13th Baron Rothvale, will tell you himself he's the LAST person on earth who should have custody over a priceless collection of art, but since when does the irony of life ever fall in line with what somebody wants? Ivan might be a Lord according to British law, but he's just a regular guy with an appetite for speed...and women...and some dominating kink in the bedroom. Yeah, just a regular guy who happens have Olympic gold medals stashed away in his house. Riiiight. His public profile is merely a sham--his private life a carefully guarded secret borne out of the pain of betrayal. Even his famous cousin, Ethan Blackstone, doesn't know the whole story about the man he considers a brother.

Lord Ivan has a plethora of problems piled up to his aristocratic eyeballs--that only get more complicated when a beautiful art conservationist shows up to appraise his inherited collection of paintings--but that doesn't stop him from digging himself in deeper. Nope, not a bit. Once Ivan gets a taste of Gabrielle Hargreave, mistaken identity or not, he can't think of anything else but how perfect she felt in his arms the night he first laid his eyes on her.

He wants her, and what Ivan wants, Ivan gets. He is Lord Ivan after all. Gabrielle soon discovers that the Dom in him isn't taking 'no' for an answer. But, yet, Gabrielle Hargreave might just teach our discontent 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.

Ivan and Gabrielle were great! We got tastes of them during The Blackstone Affair series. Gabrielle was sweet and smart. She has a rough past that she is trying to overcome, but she is strong. I liked how she stood her own, even against the irresistible Ivan. It seems the men in that family are all wondrous. (Side note, I must visit London more often…) Ivan is a pompous ass, but it is only his way of shielding himself for hurt. I liked him, even when he was being an ass. He was just so adorably clueless at first. But fear not, he got it together and the chemistry between those two flew off the pages! Oh! And can you say ALPHA??? Um yes. Yes indeed.

The cat and mouse game between Ivan and Gabrielle was cute and fun. Her reasons for running were legitimate and it really added to the excitement when he finally caught her.

“’I found you,’ a smooth voice said behind me.”

The moments in Ireland visiting Ivan’s castle were my favorite. The imagery was great and mirrored the feelings and experiences of the characters. It was a beautiful to picture the green countryside which only added to the romance.

“The dark, the rain and the morose feelings of helplessness matched my life perfectly at the moment.”

I forgot how much I missed the characters from the Blackstone Affair series. They were all so relatable and fun. It was nice to be back with the gang. I am really looking forward to the res to this series. This book ended with a slight cliffhanger teasing us with so much more to come.

4 stars and pair it with a blueberry mojito!
