Review: The Seductive One by Susan Mallery

First line: Borrowing a million dollars from the devil was one thing; picking a fight with him while doing it was something else.

From the back cover: Of all the Marcelli sisters, the only one who dreams of running the family's winery is Brenna - and she's about to get her chance. But taking the helm at Marcelli Winery is tougher than she bargains for - especially when she butts heads with her grandfather, whose Old World ways dictate that a male should inherit the business. In need of some fast capital in order to prove her grandfather wrong, Brenna turns to Nic Giovanni, her family's nemesis...Years ago, she ended her secret relationship with Nic, choosing loyalty to her family over the hot passion they shared. But now he's back in her life, he's loaned her a million dollars, and their feelings for each other are stronger than ever. Brenna must find out for herself: Is Nic the love of her life? Or the schemer who could topple the Marcelli dynasty - and break her heart?

My thoughts:  This is the third in the Marcelli series and it features a striking couple who are equals. Brenna is no shrinking violet and Nic is her equal in temperament and ambition. It was fun to watch as Brenna battles not only with Nic, but also with her grandfather, who is cemented in the old ways. Both these stubborn men soon realize how strong a person she is. We are finally given insight into what caused the long-standing feud between the Marcelli and Giovanni families - a feud that has been mentioned in the previous two books. Another great book by Susan Mallery and I look forward to reading the last two in this series.
