A forgotten heiress inherits a crumpling empire… as she struggles to protect herself from the ruthless billionaire who is seeking to salvage it
Raised by a guardian in Ireland, Olivia Grey is shocked when the secret details of her birth are leaked to the media as she tried to come to terms with the unexpected death of her father. Drawn into her estranged family, the shy and reclusive clothing designer finds her way through the media spotlight, an imploding empire and the expectations of the elite New York financial world.
Fionn Lynch is a hot, obscenely wealthy math genius with a razor sharp business mind who seeks out Olivia to squash the media speculation around the family. Olivia is more of a challenge than he expected and he has to change his game plan to save the company he helped to build.
As a writer and reader of contemporary romance, this genre is near and dear to my own heart and I am particular about the books I enjoy. When I picked up a copy of The Forgotten Heiress by debut author Susie Warren, I wasn't sure what to expect. I can honestly say that I was not disappointed.
Both Olivia Grey and Fionn Lynch are well developed, believable characters. They display a vast array of emotions, that help draw the reader into the story and keep them wanting to know what happens to these people. Will Olivia come to terms with the legacy left behind by her father? Will she be accepted by her step mother and step brother? Will Fionn save the company he has worked so hard to build? Can people from two different backgrounds make it? In addition to the wonderful characters, Ms. Warren does an excellent job of balancing just enough drama and romance to keep the story moving along with out leaving out anything important.
Overall, I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance. 5 Stars.
