Tycoon Theron Anetakis had only one problem--and she just walked through his door. With his business takeover complete, he'd intended to arrange a marriage for himself to further secure his future.
However... Little Isabella Caplan had blossomed into a voluptuous vixen with plans of her own, and they didn't include letting the executor of her father's estate also arrange a marriage for her to another man! She had pined for Theron long enough. Now it was time to seduce her hot-blooded hotel tycoon and bring him to one bended knee.

Reviews for The Tycoon's Rebel Bride
I find myself thoroughly underwhelmed by "The Tycoon's Rebel Bride". I like Maya Banks' writing, apparently I like it better when her heroines and heroes have more to offer than cliches. I realize that when writing for category romance there's less flexibility with a plot line. I also know that the editors probably wield a wicked red pen. But I still need characters with character and a plot that I can pretend to believe.Isabella is in love with Theron. She's been in love with him since she was a girl, even though she's only actually seen and interacted with him on a random basis. Now she's 22, has her college degree, and sets out to snare Theron. But there's a glitch. Theron has a woman he intends to propose to in one week!Theron is 32 and figures it's time to settle down. So he chooses the daughter of a family friend and makes his plans. All is going smoothly until Isabella sweeps into his life and changes everything.Isabella acts like a childish, spoiled, and immature GIRL. She sets her cap for a man she doesn't really know and then does everything but assault him to get him to pay attention to her. Theron acts more like 50 than 32. He treats Isabella like a child, but then kisses her and lusts after her. Ick. I didn't care for either hero or heroine. Neither seemed to have much to offer and this made the story even harder to enjoy. "The Tycoon's Rebel Bride" was NOT one of Maya Banks' better books (for me anyway). I'm not sure if it's the switch to mainstream press or category romance, but either way I wish she'd put more of her normal style into it. This one just didn't hit any high notes for me.read more
