Hard Deal by Stefanie London


From USA Today bestselling author Stefanie London comes the second book in the Melbourne After Dark series! Imogen Hargrove is done with playboys—until a kiss from a masked stranger turns her world upside down…

For one night only, Imogen Hargrove is a sexy spy. She’s donned a mask for the Carmina Masquerade Ball, where she hopes to catch her sister’s cheating fiancé, Daniel, in the act. But she’s the one who gets rumbled when she strays too close to her target—only to realize she’s been tailing the wrong man. A searing kiss makes her forget her mission altogether, and the mysterious stranger awakens something inside her: a burning passion she hasn’t felt since the brutal breakup of her last relationship.

Imogen is mortified to discover that the man behind the mask is her colleague, notorious womanizer Caleb Allbrook. He’s the last person she wants to get close to, and she doesn’t need another playboy in her life. But that kiss has her curious—besides, Caleb knows her sister’s fiancé and could prove very useful in digging up dirt.

She makes a deal: she’ll go on a date with Caleb in exchange for information on Daniel’s affair. But Caleb’s irresistible charm turns a casual conversation into a night of sultry seduction. Imogen knows Caleb is bad news—yet he makes her feel sexier than any man ever has. Can she pull herself away from yet another toxic relationship, or will Caleb prove there’s more to him than just sex appeal?

Sexy. Passionate. Bold. Discover Harlequin DARE, a new line of fun, edgy and sexually explicit romances for the fearless female.

Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the second book in the series, and involves Imogen, Lainey (lead in book one)'s friend. Imogen is on a mission to prove that her sister Penny's fiancé is cheating on her and will do anything to ensure that she will not make a mistake. As we learn why she is so concerned, it is rather sweet, but also sadly misguided. Luckily, her boss's younger son, Caleb, is just the man to explain that to her.

I loved this book, which mixes super-hot encounters with some real issues, and the way that people learn to deal with them. There is plenty of good humour, and awakenings to both feelings of love and passion, as well as self-respect and growth.

A good entertaining read, thank you.



A voracious reader, Stefanie has dreamed of being an author her whole life. After sneaking several English Lit subjects into her ‘very practical’ Business degree, she got a job in corporate communications. But it wasn't long before she turned to romance fiction. She recently left her hometown of Melbourne to start a new adventure in Toronto and now spends her days writing contemporary romances with humour, heat and heart.
