Claiming His Secret Son The Billionaires of Blackcastle #4 Richard Graves has long battled his dark heritage and only one woman nearly shattered his elegant facade Though he seduced Isabella Sandoval to take revenge on the man who'd destroyed his family walking away from her was the hardest thing he's done Now he's learned the truth about her son and he won't walk away again Richard's mission of vengeance nearly cost Isabella her life But she can't resist rekindling their dangerous passion Can she protect her child from the man sworn to claim him and herself from the desire she can no longer fight I was given this book as an ARC for an hones reviewAll I can say is I absolutely LOVE THIS BOOK and it is a must read the books just keep getting better If I could give it stars I would I wanted to know about Richard after reading the last book I wanted to know what really happen between him and Numair and for them to rebuild their friendship Richard was one of the most lethal of them all you do not want to cross him but I think he was really misunderstood He was a protector and the lengths he went to protect the ones he loved and cared for was crazy His love interest is Isabella she was married to his worst enemy he went after her to get what information he needed and left her But got then he bargained for I love how they were drawn to each sexually and the depth of their attraction and love even though Richard didn't know he was in love at the time He just knew he wanted her After eight years he sees her again and from that moment on this book popped off The sex scenes are very powerful It takes a strong woman to withstand all that power and Isabella is his match in all ways I was all in from the start he thought he could do a repeat of last time but Isabella has a surprise for him At times I laughed and others I wanted to cry It really was emotional read for me To watch those two find love in each other put a smile on my face and when Richard meets his son for the first time he was hooked This is one of my all time favorites now By the end I wanted him to have everything He deserved a lot for everything he gave up for everyone Family means everything to him I know there is books to come up next maybe Antonio's story Im just sitting on the edge of my seat waiting 35 stars I've eagerly anticipated Richard's story for a long time; partly because I've found him so fascinating and partly because I was intrigued as to how this anti hero could have a real love story and how some of his uestionable activities and decisions would be explained My expectations were high and the book didn't disappoint Richard is everything I thought he'd wind up being and He begins the story as inscrutable cold and even cruel as ever especially to Isabella and even after their first bout of passion ensues yet as events progress and his backstory is revealed so many nuances of the man and his motivations come to the fore It became easy to feel sympathy and admiration for him which only softened his edges it didn't eliminate them by any stretch of the imagination and when Gates' trademark all encompassing focus by the hero on the heroine kicks in the story becomes even emotional and compelling For her part Isabella is a wonderful heroine Like Richard she's faced and overcome horrors traumas and impossible odds in her life but has become all the stronger and selfless for it Even when she's caught up in an extreme case of lust she doesn't lose her strength and presence of mind She complements Richard perfectly even as she challenges him and refuses to cave in to demands made of her Adding a highly intelligent and perceptive child into the mix really served to peel away so many layers of Richard's past and personality It was fascinating and evocative to watch him evolve as a man; as a lover and romantic partner; as a member of a family; and ultimately as a father Of course an Olivia Gates book isn't complete without a large measure of combustible chemistry and heat and I think she outdid herself in this case The sexual tension rears its head immediately and the passion that pervades Richard's and Isabella's earliest interactions and then the story as a whole is all encompassing and scorching The story isn't just one of romantic love it also has a great deal to do with family both biological and otherwise As such the emotionality of it all is off the charts as the story progresses The reader is really put through the emotional wringer right along with Richard and Isabella and others which makes this story one that really stays with you even after the last page is turned With this book Olivia Gates has taken all of the things that make her stories so wonderful and memorable a strong conflicted hero and heroine; a real emotional punch; and incredibly strong chemistry and has amped them up several notches This one is entertaining emotional and hot beyond the telling of it It's truly a wonderful story and a fantastic read I LOVED Richard Such a bad man can't call that hunk of prime male wickedness and maturity boy for nothing so knee wateringly sexy stomach clenchingly dangerous and heart and another part of the female anatomy meltingly irresistible Another reviewer wished he would have had his own ongoing series and I second that opinion Any hope we'll see him in books And I don't mean the upcoming books in the Billionaires of Black Castle books as a secondary character This man this mature lethal unstoppable man needs to have books to explore him I just LOVED him and loved seeing how he loves his woman his son and his brothers And if I can't have of him I'm off to read his book and all his other appearances in the previous three books over and over again Uh Ms Olivia Gatesany hope we'll have of him Any other hero exactly like him then I'll live in hope I got the book directly from the author for an honest review LOVE her books I love Olivia Gates's books and have enjoyed this series so far but was a little anxious about reading this book Richard Graves aka Cobra is a complex hero The glimpses of him in previous books have not made him likable to say the least His past was sketchy and the side he chose to show to others was not warm and fuzzy I like what Olivia Gates has done with him His past is fully revealed in this story and he actually becomes somewhat of a sympathetic character The heroine is a woman from his past and their history is very complicated Isabella is a wonderful heroine Like Richard he is a complicated character and I liked her a lot She's survived difficult circumstances As with other books by Olivia Gates Claiming His Secret Son is filled with super steamy sex scenes and strong emotions The intensity and passion make this a compelling story that is hard to put downAlso props to whoever chose the cover model because as a fan of this series he is spot on for how I pictured the character Simply fantastic The best yet in what was a magnificently passionate and emotional series so far Richard was my favorite from the moment he appeared in the first book From Enemy's Daughter to Expectant Bride and I kept wondering what was his story Olivia Gates has delivered an even better story than I hoped for and it does him justice and it also gives him a much deserved happy ending I am very much Team Richard I wish there were books starring him He's the kind of hero a whole series is built around an ongoing one so you can get and of his luscious complexity and the incredible ways he loves his own As a young teen Richard Graves was trained to be a lethal operative Only one woman has even gotten under the skin of Richard Graves and that was Isabella Sandoval Vowing revenge on the man who ruined him and his family Richard seduced Isabella as a means to an end He never meant for her to mean but in the end even after allowing Isabella a choice he could do nothing but walk away Finding her again is a surprise but an even bigger surprise is when Richard learns he has a sonIsabella nearly lost her life when Richard executed his revenge Now she has built a new life when Richard walks back in The irresistible attraction is still there but can she let Richard back in her life Can she trust him Isabella has dependents and any decision made by her and Richard will affect than one personRichard was really hard to like in the beginning He was cold and emotionless on the surface Underneath he was seething with emotions he did not know how to handle So he turned to his usual method of using force andor seduction Isabella was than his match and refused to be controlled But both were susceptible to the other when they touched Olivia Gates is truly an incredible write with her ability to take a man as hardened as Richard and make him our hero The cracks in his shell slowly eroded as Isabella applied her own brand of hammer We learn a lot about their pasts and can’t help but be cheered by the ending Two individuals damaged by their past come together and find healing and peace in each other’s arms Read their story in Claiming His Secret Son and experience it for yourselfsingle titles dot com I have no words to describe how long I've been waiting for this book And after reading it I am waiting for the next book from this author Is the book that makes you want to re read a sentence because it is full of emotions Thank you so much for you talent Mrs Olivia Gates i cannot provide enough justice for this fantastic book a good read to me consists of consistency imagery humor the occasional fear jerker and of course the romance Richard AKA Cobra met Isabella while he was on an assignment to take down his greatest enemy Thinking this was a touch and go he plunged in with his usual charm thinking he was immune to love but it bit him in the buttThis is a example oh how creative Olivia is after eight years Time congealed as she lay beneath Richard paralyzed Even her heart seems afraid it would rupture if it beat Then everything that had been gathering inside her since he'd walked away all the betrayal and despondence and yearning broke through the cracks and she started to tremble'Her is a little tease of how imagery is importantIt was true that catastrophe happened in slow motion To Isabella's racing senses the ghastly seuence as her son flew into the trajectory of that car the shearing dissonance of its shrieking brakes the nauseating brunt of its unyielding metal on Rico's resilient flesh and fragile bones was a study in macabre sluggishness This book was really than i expected really Olivia is such a good writer her books gets better and better
