Wealthy Russian businessman Khaled Kitaev (who's 29) recently won a Paris cabaret, L'Oiseau Bleu, (also known as the Bluebird) in a poker game.

I loved the romance!
Here we have the modern-day equivalent of The Prince and the Showgirl. The monied person in this case is a mountain of a man, rough, rugged and muy macho, a Russian who made it big in oil and has now acquired a Parisian burlesque club in a card game. It’s a headache that he now has to deal with since the club has been ineptly managed by the two Danton brothers. But his troubles really start with a pretty Irish lass who tumbles off a tank so that he runs to her rescue.Shenanigans ensue, of cour [...]
Quite entertaining novel. Both Gigi and Khaled are interesting characters.
burlesque dancer in aquarium. Messed up feet. Sad
I'd give it about 3 1/2 stars. I'm happy how this story has evolved from the way these particular kind of books (Harlequin Presents) were written 20 years ago. Instead of a pure virgin friendless orphan as is in many older Harlequin Presents books, Gigi is a burlesque dancer in Paris, France who has had previous sexual relations, friends in her dance troupe and a father still living in Barcelona, Spain. Khalid is a Russian oligarch businessman who came to check out her place of business because [...]
This book was a pleasant surprise. It had the usual Presents tropes but also dashes of humor and sass from the heroine, which was a treat. I enjoyed it very much and would definitely recommend it for a light read. I'll also be keeping an eye out for Lucy Ellis's work in the future. She has a fast-paced but nuanced writing style that gives her characters depth.
"Excellent descriptions and quirky, nicely drawn characters make Ellis’ book a keeper. Gigi, with her circus background and in-your-face attitude, is very well depicted" (RT Book Reviews, 4 stars).

very boring book and that is the best part of the book.
