Renowned playboy Leo’s reputation is legendary, and if the smoldering looks they were fighting to contain when rescued are anything to go by, there can only be one question on everybody’s lips: Just how long did it take wickedly sexy Leo to undress buttoned-up heiress Anna?
The Girl Nobody Wanted is a passionate read with some action adventure thrown in for good measure.

When Leo and Anna’s plane crashes and they are forced to spend two days on a secluded island before they are rescued, their attractions to each other gets the better of them.

When Anna is faced with an unexpected pregnancy, following the heels of her engagement scandal she approaches Leo with a marriage proposition… Leo being Leo upstages Anna’s Plan there as well.
I really enjoyed reading this book, the characters were well drawn out and the dialogues beautifully written. As with any Lynn’s book you get a bit of action and drama thrown in with the plane crash.
I can’t resist mentioning that I absolutely loved the emotional and heartfelt letter Leo wrote to their daughter Lucy on her birth which is included in the last book.
The Girl Nobody Wanted is a great addition to the Santina Crown Series and I would definitely recommend this book.
