My Review: I think this was well written, it just didn't work for me, for some reason. I thought the author's descriptions and language were done well, it just took a while for me to get into this. I liked the characters, so I'm a little let down that this wasn't a hit with me. Especially since I'm loving this whole mob/mafia trend.

This is one of those situations where I really know the problem lies not with the book, but with me. I didn't get sucked in as much as I needed to, to really enjoy it. I know if I read this again when I'm in a different mind set, I will probably love it. So I'm already planning to curl up with this book again in the not-too-distant future.

Final Rating: THREE POINT FIVE out of FIVE stars (3.5/5)! It just wasn't doing it for me, but it's totally a personal thing. The writing was good, the story was spot-on - I just didn't get sucked in, and the pacing felt off.

30732885 About Covenant: Danger. Passion. Obsession.   Heir to a worthless title, Christophe Marchand knows the only way to build an empire in the twenty-first century is with single-minded focus and cold, hard pragmatism.   Which means no distractions.   But that's before he lays eyes on Charlotte Duval.   Charlotte Duval is no man's arm candy.   An expert in antique furniture, Charlotte is in Paris to close up her recently deceased father's antique store. Her plan? Finish the job as quickly as possible, preferably without touching the still-tender wound of their estranged relationship, and return to L.A..   And even the enigmatic Christophe Marchand can't tempt her to stay.   Then the discovery of an elaborate ring hidden inside a 16th century writing desk sets off a chain of events that sends her to Christophe for protection. Soon the pair are traveling to Vienna in search of answers to an unsolved theft that once rocked the art world. But when their hunt intersects with an ominous takeover of Christophe's business, it becomes clear that their common cause will either destroy them -- or force them to come to terms with the true price of love.   This is not your mother’s mob.
