Another to fit my NetGalley November challenge, I bring you the first of a serialized eBook from Ruthie Knox, Chained: Roman Holiday #1.
What a fun start to a new serial romance! Ashley is absolutely adorable: headstrong, funny and oh so devious in her ability to get her own way with careful phrasing and pointed questions. Finding the hotel she expected to inherit from her Grandmother was sold and is now slated for demolition, she impulsively decides to chain herself to a tree to stop the demolition. Forgetting that she is a ‘gathering’ person, a great team player, not so good without someone else to cheer on.
Roman is a developer, working to make a name for himself in southern Florida. Part of this deal and his expansion plans hinges on his ability to get this particular piece of property cleared and ready for his plans. His major backer, and father of his fiance will not continue with the needed cash infusions if Roman can’t convince Ashley to capitulate, and soon.
Some clever banter, an attraction that neither will acknowledge all promise for this to be one clever and very fun series…
Keep reading! I’ll be highlighting this serial in upcoming weeks!!

Meet Ashley and Roman—complete opposites who can’t hide their attraction—in Episode 1 of Ruthie Knox’s eBook original serial, Roman Holiday.
Ashley Bowman is having a bad week. Reeling from the death of her beloved grandmother, she returns to the Florida Keys only to learn that a heartless Miami developer has gotten hold of the crappy vacation rentals she calls home. Ashley has one day to clear out before Roman Díaz destroys the only place in the world that matters to her. Chaining herself to a palm tree in the bulldozers’ path seems like a good way to stop him . . . until she realizes she should’ve brought food and water. And pants. Also, it would help if the evil developer weren’t so ridiculously hot.
The last thing Roman Díaz needs is some sun-kissed blond protester getting her picture in the newspaper and messing up his plans. He bought the property fair and square, and the resort he wants to build on the site is the key to realizing his highest ambitions. But when a hurricane blows through, Roman has to hustle Ashley to safety if he wants to protect his reputation—and that means giving in to her unreasonable demands.
Roman needs to learn a little compassion, and Ashley’s decided to teach it to him . . . even if she has to drag him all over the Eastern Seaboard to do it.
