Stefan by V.A. Dold

BLURB:   El is a beautiful, successful, plus sized woman suffering from a debilitating humiliation that has left her hating all handsome, wealthy men exactly like Stefan Le Beau. Unfortunately for Le Beau, she’s known him since she was sixteen and was totally snubbed by him. To her, he’s a hound dog and a man-whore.
Stefan is a playboy to the extreme with one hard and fast rule: date a woman only once, take her to bed, and be gone before morning.
Until El.
Stefan’s dream of finding his mate comes true when he bids two hundred thousand dollars to win a date with El at Simon’s charity ball. Money well spent in his opinion.
Now, if she would only talk to him. Or look at him. Or touch him, or…like him.
Can Stefan convince El he's a reformed man?
Can El learn to trust a man who is the epitome of what she avoids and could shatter her heart?
It will require drastic, strategic measures from the entire family to make this mating happen.

Stefan compares well with the previous two books in the series if adding a little more to the danger level to the family. And that's a good thing. There's the sole arc of Stefan trying to win El but the books in the series are all connected by several story lines that maybe don't take a whole lot of precedence overall in the book but that are just as important.

You also get familiar characters and that made me smile. You get to check in with the previous pairs and see the meddling Emma at work once more. Which admittedly gives me kind of shivers while making me laugh at the same time. 

The writing was well done and easy to read, especially with that Cajun accent and some french phrases thrown in as well. Can anyone say sigh. I'm all for a good British or English accent but Cajun's slow drawl is a close third.

I just enjoy the relationships between family members. It's easy, loving and I just love that feeling.

If you're looking for a shifter romance than the Le Beau Brothers series is a good read. And I'm excited to see some more from V.A. Dold.

BIO:  V.A.Dold is the bestselling author of the Le Beau Brothers series, New Orleans wolf shifter novels. A graduate of Saint Cloud University, she majored in marketing. Prior to becoming a full time writer, she was a publicist to the authors, owning Innovative Online Book Tours and ARC Author & Reader Con's (ARC NOLA) (ARC Phoenix). Still is. The companies mesh so well together, much like PB&J.
Her idea of absolute heaven is a day in the French Quarter filled with nothing but her computer, her coffee mug and the Brothers, of course.
A Minnesota native with her heart lost to Louisiana, she has a penchant for titillating tales featuring sexy men and strong women. When she's not writing, she's probably taking in a movie, reading or traveling.
Her earliest reading memories are from grade school. She had a major fixation with horses, and the Black Stallion was a favorite. Then junior high came along and teenage hormones kicked in. It became all about the Harlequin Romances. She has been hooked on romances ever since.
