seriously romantic: the millionaire's revenge by wendy byrne

luke mccall is determined to take down his business rival, a man who has bribed or stolen his way into the real estate deals luke had been looking to develop. his rival's daughter, grace wilson, is sick of being wooed by guys out to get something from her dad. when she and luke meet he pretends he doesn't know who she is. and she at times charmed and wary of his too good to be true behavior. she had come up with a test to weed out the loser guys looking for something from her dad, but luke passes every test.

the key is that luke doesn't want anything from her dad except a confession of wrong-doing. and as his plan involves him more in grace's life, and as he gets to know her, he realizes that she is not her father's daughter. she is bright and funny and giving. and something about grace encourages him to let down the walls he had built around his heart after a terrible childhood and start to feel things again.

his plan backfires spectacularly when the authorities realize that they have enough reason to charge grace's father with criminal behavior. and she realizes that he had ulterior motives in seeking her out. eventually they figure things out and both grace and luke make some compromises to continue a relationship. the millionaire's revenge is a solid category romance. i wish the titles of these books were a bit better than referring to a character by their financial status. but i suppose that's a thing and it didn't stop me from reading the book. i'm just always slightly embarrassed by titles like these. my issue, i suppose.

**the millionaire's revenge will publish on december 12, 2016. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangled publishing (indulgence) in exchange for my honest review.
