The Spice King by Elizabeth Camden-Book Review

About the book 
Gray Delacroix has dedicated his life to building his very successful global spice empire, but it has come at a cost. Resolved to salvage his family before it spirals out of control, he returns to his ancestral home to save his brother and sister before it's too late. 

As a junior botanist for the Smithsonian, Annabelle Larkin has been charged with the impossible task of gaining access to the notoriously private Delacroix plant collection. If she fails, she will be out of a job and the family farm in Kansas will go under. She has no idea that in gaining entrance to the Delacroix world, she will unwittingly step into a web of dangerous political intrigue far beyond her experience. 

Unable to deny her attraction to the reclusive business tycoon, Annabelle will be forced to choose between her heart and loyalty to her country. Can Gray and Annabelle find a way through the storm of scandal without destroying the family Gray is fighting to save?

And I thought
Well the cover would have made me pick it up.  I was thinking hmm...what is this guy all about?  
And then I read the first couple of pages and I was taken in by 
Annbelle and her well actually I got a sense of savvy and determination. 
Gary is pictured as reclusive and powerful business with a sense
of loyalty especially for family.
I enjoyed the setting and it was interesting to learn about this part of history.  I have never read about the spice trade era so it was interesting.  
I enjoyed the suspense and the romance.  Elizabeth Camden gives readers a storyline that keeps you turning the pages.  

I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
I received a complimentary copy. 
My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
