Chained by Ruthie Knox  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.


     Ashley’s first impression of Roman was of a handsome man who could not be real, not good, and he could not be trusted.  You see Ashley had chained herself to a palm tree that Roman wanted to plow down along with the only real home she’d ever known. 

     You see her grandmother passed away while she was in Bolivia.  She always thought that it was written in her will that she would get Sunnyvale in Florida where her grandma raised her.  But that is not what happened.  Her grandma had sold the property two years prior when she found out that she had cancer another thing her grandma did not tell her.  Guess who she sold it to?  Roman that’s who the man who wants to plow down her tree that she is padlocked too.

     There was only one problem with her plan to be tethered to this tree.  No clothes other than her bikini, no food or water, and no idea that a hurricane was coming.  So, other than that all was good.  She just needed to figure out how to get all the old guest out to help or at least the press.

     Ruthie Knox does a cute Novella series she always likes to do this one was a little too short for my liking but still funny with all the bantering that these two characters do.  Just know it is only 46 pages long.  I just hope that the books that follow are longer for each book.
