About this ebook

Gorgeous young Ella is here at my remote estate, posing as my daughter's au pair.

And I've already made the mistake of sleeping with her.

Not only that, but an unknown source has a tape of our little sexcapade.

As the CEO of a news empire, I know that reporters are just waiting for me to trip up.

I have to track down that recording while keeping my hands off the nanny.

I’m finding that being so close to Ella each day is such exquisite torture.

I can lust after my daughter’s au pair all I want. But never, ever go any further.

Her sharp tongue and knowing smile won’t make me falter.

I will be as callous and beastly as I’ve ever been.

Even with Ella's tempting curves begging for my hands to explore them, I won’t fold.

With the spotlight of my job shining on both of us, I will behave myself.

…until I can’t anymore.

The Beast is a contemporary billionaire romance from Wall Street Journal Bestseller Vivian Wood. It's the first of three full-length books in the gritty, raw, passionate Ruined Castles Series.

Kieran and Ella quickly pulled me into their captivating world, and I find myself completely consumed with it. This book gets this trilogy off to sinfully enticing start and leaves you with a fierce hunger for more. Lush, emotions, juicy drama, rich feels, taut tension, brutal intensity, sultry heat and thrilling suspense have you glued to the pages as your pulse races, and you find yourself short of breath. I need book two like, yesterday. Lol This is my freely posted, frank review.

Kier & Ella's story continues in The Beast. Keir thought running to Scotland would help the blackmail issue go away, but now he has to deal with a nosy American Reporter, his overbearing and insulting family and his daughters unruly behavior. The drama, mystery, danger and passion ramps up in The Beast and the ending had me yelling out loud! I need The Nanny now! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

WOW! WOW! WOW! I loved this book. I was hooked immediately. Once I started reading I could not put it down. I read it straight thru. I didn't even feel bad losing sleep over it. The skill and nastery of Ms. Wood kept me turning the pages as time just seemed to stop. I was so caught up in Keirnan and Ella's story. The dynamic of their relationship was captivating. Can these two have a future with others planning their own goals for the future agaisnt them? What are they willing to do or endure ? This book has it all. There is danger, secrets, betrayal, fear, desire and more. Check this out to see what I am talking about. There is a cliffhanger however I know when the next book comes out I will get answers to my questions. The hard part is the waiting! It will be worth it though!!
