Beauty and the Bachelor by Naima Simone

Billionaire Lucas Oliver is hell bent on revenge. And his plan begins when Sydney Blake—the stunning daughter of his enemy—is tricked into bidding on Lucas at a bachelor auction. Then he serves up a little blackmail...followed by a marriage proposal Sydney has no choice but to accept.

Sydney has been controlled by her family her whole life. When Lucas threatens to reveal her father's shady business, she is once again forced to do her duty for her family. But worse—oh so much worse—is the rush of lust that Lucas ignites in her blood. 

Lucas is determined to make Sydney suffer, but it’s tough when he can’t keep from touching her–or thinking about touching her–all the time. She’s not fairing much better since she’s engaged to a darkly handsome beast intent on destroying her entire family...along with her heart.

My review:
Beauty and the Beast meet the bootstrap billionaire and the dutiful socialite daughter. Lucas Oliver is the bootstrap billionaire who is bent on revenge against Jason Blake.  The weapon he chooses is Sydney Blake, Jason’s dutiful socialite daughter. Lucas is a hard ass determined to have his revenge no matter who he hurts along the way. He tricks and traps Sydney into being his wife despite the fact that she is engaged to another man.  She isn’t in love with her now former fiancé but it is safer that way right? Emotions were never part of Lucas’s plan.  He doesn’t trust women and he certainly doesn’t trust Sydney no matter how sweet and sexy she may appear.  Will his quest for revenge cost him the one woman who can heal his soul? Beauty and the Bachelor is a well written and fast paced feel good romance. The type of book you put down with a smile on your face.
