He has it all, but there’s one thing his luxurious lifestyle can’t give him—the truth about his past. His search for answers leads him to Brianna Sullivan, hidden in the Irish countryside. She SoaRTis his landlady who proves to be a delicious distraction he never anticipated…

Brianna is unlike any of the women this ruthless tycoon is used to, and her innocence has him captivated…and ready to seduce the secrets of his past from her lips! But when Brianna learns his true identity, their undeniable connection will erupt in a whole new kind of chemistry!

Secrets of a Ruthless Tycoon by Cathy Williams is a well written romance with a setting of rural Ireland. It was very different in content from the usual presents story as the romance is set in a rural countryside and the hero is searching for his birth mother under the false identity of a writer.

Sounds intriguing but though the book got off to a good start, the slow pace of the story was off-putting. Leo was an alpha hero with the occasional cold behavior. He shied away from commitment and was an overall likable hero. Brianna’s only relationship in the past was a very bad experience and therefore she is not looking for anything permanent with Leo. It was a fling turned into something serious kind of romance. I liked that the romance is not just the focus of the story and there was also a focus on other things like Leo’s search for his birth mother.

Overall, Secrets of a Ruthless Tycoon by Cathy Williams is an likable and different romance. The slow pace can be frustrating but if you want a break from all the glamour and scandals or if you are a fan of the author then give this one a read.
