#LettersFromTheHeart | #BookReview | #Knight’sMistress by C.C.Gibbs @ccgibbs (December 6th 2012, Quercus Books @QuercusBooks)

“Katherine Hart is thrilled to be recruited by Knight Enterprises, the most prestigious venture-capital company in the world. That is, until she makes the acquaintance of the company’s infamous CEO, Dominic Knight.

At thirty-two, Dominic is a self-made billionaire with a fearsome ambition and a temper to match. He is also impossibly attractive and dangerously charming when he wants to be.

To Kate, Dominic seems like the perfect predator, and she resolves to be cautious despite the obvious chemistry between them, telling herself she can always leave if Dominic grows too demanding. What she doesn’t know is that the decision isn’t hers to make…

Dominic Knight has found a new plaything, and Mr. Knight always gets what he wants.”

CC Gibbs introduces us to the affluent CEO that is Dominic Knight with all the wonder and intrigue that our lead female character Katherine Hart experiences when she first meets the man himself. Here is a young, independent woman who knows what she wants and works hard to get her foot in the door in a world that is dominated by Dominic Knight.

Gibbs creates these characters well, with a great eye for detail we enjoy the pleasurable surroundings that Katherine finds herself in. Not only does she get spoilt in the ways of Dominic’s sensuality but in his affluence as well. We’re thrown into a world so rich that it leaves us with an after taste of decadence.

Sure, the character of Dominic is your typical CEO playboy with a history of break hearts but for me it is Katherine’s character that intrigues me the most. She is sucked into the wonderful make believe world Dominic creates and struggles to keep her head above water every step of the way. Throughout we see her fighting to hold onto reality, to stop herself from falling in love with a man who is intense and dominating.

Ultimately it is the strength and struggle for this character that draws you and whilst you can’t help falling, a little bit in awe of Dominic, in the end it is Katerine that is the power house.

Overall this was a very enjoyable read and I know that the next novel of Katherine and Dominic’s exploration will be added to the ever increasing bookshelf in the not too distant future.
