ARC Review: Priceless (Rothvale Legacy #1) by 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.


4 Stars

Fans of Ethan Blackstone (yes, me!) will love this new series by the talented Ms. Miller!  Priceless is written beautifully and you immediately are drawn to the characters. I know is a start of a fabulous new series. 

We've briefly meet Ethan's cousin, Ivan and Brynne's best roommate/friend, Gaby, from the Blackstone Affair series. But getting their story and how the meet, well, was truly "priceless!"

Ivan is pretty much famous and is leery of women. He's also dominate and arrogant.  And I'm dying to know what woman made him like this! He's the type of screw them and leave them and it works for him. That's until he meets Gaby, but by mistake--and it was hot! But that encounter didn't last long.

So when Gaby unexpectedly takes a job to appraise some paintings, she gets a big surprise...the second time around! What I love about Gaby, she is smart, beautiful, strong and a determined heroine, but she does harbor some secrets. 

And Ivan, can't get Gaby out of his mind. After he realizes his mistakes, he is determined to get Ms. Hargreave back to his home (and his bed!) to help him with his collection. But of course, she has reservations with taking it further with Ivan. 

The chemistry between these two is off the chart. And I'm excited to find out more on how this "Dom" side of Ivan is going to fair with Ms. Hargreave.  Because I'm sure she may submit, but with her own rules!

Priceless is filled with so much anticipation and I can't wait to read more. Plus, we get a little more of Ethan and Brynne too!
