Tiger Lily by Vivian Winslow
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?
Vivian Winslow’s “Tiger Lily” is the third short story in the Gilded Flower Series. As always, there’s a “Sex and the City” vibe with an abundance of racy sex. Lily is a lucky girl, if you know what I mean! We finally get to know Lily’s happily ever after and who she ends up with. I’m not giving it away, but I will say that Ben didn’t win in this round, but there’s still time for him to find love in the future stories in this series. 4 out of 5!
