Title: The Gilded Flower series
Author: Vivian Winslow
Genre: Erotic Romance
Weary from battling a hostile takeover attempt of her family’s company, Lily seeks a distraction in Todd, an erstwhile bartender with a large trust fund and magical tongue. Meanwhile, a connection seems to be developing between Lily and Alejandro, a wealthy and gorgeous Cuban-American, whose brother, Rodrigo, is dating Lily’s twin sister, Dahlia. When Alejandro unexpectedly rebuffs Lily one night, she is deeply dismayed. But, after seeing Alejandro’s picture with a gorgeous Latina model in the gossip pages, Lily thinks it wasn’t just a misunderstanding. When the sisters and brothers reunite in Aspen for a ski weekend, will Lily’s heart remain frozen or will the fire between her and Alejandro rekindle and melt away the ice?
After reading the first two books, I was on a mission to find out happens next for Lily. A "I have to read tonight despite having to get up in 5 hours" kind of thing. "What is going on with Todd:" As I talk to myself in the middle of the night.
Despite my problems with getting a grip on reality, I thought this book was the best. Which means if the last book of Lily is the best, I get what I want. All readers dream come true.
Lily is trying to figure out her life. She is having to sacrifice a large part of herself to keep the company going all the while trying to move forward with her personal romances.
Now we have one more Latin man that Lily wants to be involved with. Alejandro is different. I don't believe there is a woman out there that will dislike him. Thoughtful, sexy and intellectual. Winner!
I shall not say more than the few words above.
Except that I truly enjoyed all Vivian's books. They pulled together a story about so many dealings with life, who you can love and trust. Or who is deceitful and selfish. Which people do you want to be surrounded with.
Fantastic books only lead up to more Amazing stories. I think we will see that from Vivian Winslow.
My Rating? 1 out of 5. It's a 5!

“We’re not finished, baby,” Todd says, spooning out a bit of ice cream. “Lick this.” He fixes his gaze on Lily’s mouth. She licks her bottom lip slowly before wrapping her lips around the spoon. The strong mint flavor of the ice cream fills her mouth with sharp sensation. Todd takes a spoonful for himself before offering more to Lily with his tongue.
MY IDEA of Todd:
And Don't forget Alejandro! HOT!
