Blog Tour: Rules of Harte by Brooke Harris

Evangeline Andrews doesn’t want him, but she needs him. Julian Harte doesn’t need anyone, but he wants her. 

Eva has been passed over her whole life. A happy home, men, fashion sense…it all eludes her. She’s run away from New Jersey to find sanctuary in Dublin. But the office bitch, a nymphomaniac best friend and the nice-guy-she’s-just-not-sure-about all threaten to complicate things. 

The company social event of the year is looming. Everyone who’s anyone in the office will be at the masquerade ball. Eva has been invited, well, instructed to attend by her mysterious boss - or else. But she can’t go alone. 

Enter Julian Harte, a sexy escort with a fascination for games. Eva is about to learn the rules are complicated and Julian doesn’t do losing. 

Will Eva’s thick skin be enough to protect her when all the masks come down? Or will she discover she’s not the only one wearing more than one mask? 

Let the games begin.

Georgia says…

To say I loved this book is an understatement. Not really knowing what the book was about by the title I was hooked by the end of the first chapter. Eva “Evangeline” Andrews is your typical mousy, plain quiet girl who happens to be a lot stronger from within than she realizes. She lets the past rule her present and she has had enough. Three men complicate her life: her boss Mr. John Doe, a fellow colleague Nathan and her not so hired escort Julian Harte. All of these men push Eva to find new strengths she didn’t know she possessed.

It has been a while since a writer has been able to create love (sex) scenes so well done. It has become quite gratuitous in recent works. And yes I have been known to skip through some just to get back to story, but let me tell you these scenes were so well done I didn’t want to overlook a word. Some authors just have a talent ( I am sure it is hard work) for making the reader feel as though we are living through the characters. Ms. Harris is definitely one of these authors.

Can the story end at this point? NOOOOOOOO!  There is a cliffhanger and I am so looking forward to it. Unfortunately this book has just been released so I guess I have a while to wait. Brooke Harris has earned a pot on my auto-buy list. Bravo well done.

5 out 5 Steamy Stars

Brooke has too many of a lot of things; shoes, books, and kids. Luckily she loves them all to pieces. She never has too much wine, if you believe that.
Rules of Harte is her debut into the steamy stuff and she's currently working on the second book in the series.
