Not What She Seems by Victorine E. Lieske



Not What She Seems
by Victorine E. Lieske
(Kindle Edition)

Steven Ashton, a billionaire from New York, and Emily Grant, on the run from the law... and when they meet he can't help falling for her. What he doesn't know is that interfering in her life will put his own life in danger. Not What She Seems holds you in suspense from the moment you begin down the path of murder and romance.

When billionaire Steven Ashton couldn't stand his high society social life anymore, he left the stress of New York on a vacation for his soul. The need to meet real down to earth people lead him to a small Nebraska town he remembered visiting as a child. He didn't want to lie about who he was, but he couldn't exactly tell them the truth. Emily could have easily fallen in love with Steven, under different circumstances, but her past was catching up with her and she needed a new life. If the authorities found out about her, she could lose the one thing that meant everything, her four year old son. This book is a "sweet" romantic suspense, appropriate for all ages.

Not What She Seems grabbed my attention from the beginning until its conclusion.  The storyline was pretty fast moving the characters were very well developed and likeable.  The romance between Emily and Steven kept me reading past my bedtime, it was a romance that was based on their emotions rather than sexual encounters, which was refreshing.  The ending was very nicely done although I wish it would have been a bit longer… I want to read more about Emily and Steven.  This was a great debut novel from Victorine E. Lieske, who also designs rubber stamps, Victorine Originals.
