I had been waiting for the book as it is the sequel to the gorgeous Secret’s behind the Billionaire’s Return, if you’d like to read my review, click here. This is my seventh Blog Tour for Racheal Stewart and I have enjoyed them all. Some of them are steamier than others, but romance is always at the heart of each story. Published by Mills and Boon, this is a perfect addition to Rachael’s catalogue.
Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources and Mills and Boon for gifting me an advance reading copy in exchange for my honest review. You can read my thoughts below.
In Rachael Stewart’s latest Harlequin Romance, the second in her Claiming the Ferrington Empire duet, an invitation to Paris with a billionaire is on the cards, but only if Bree is brave enough to take it…
Can a playboy billionaire……capture her heart?
Bree has escaped the big city to heal her heart in a village bakery. But when notorious billionaire Theo walks through the door, emotionally guarded Bree discovers it’s not just her toffee pudding that’s hot and sweet! The man behind the headlines is charming but intriguingly cynical about love. Accepting his invitation to Paris could be a mistake—or the best decision she’s ever made…
Theo and Bree formed a side story in the last book, Secret’s behind the Billionaire’s Return, and I knew that there would be more to their blossoming friendship to explore. As Bree took charge of running her friend’s B&B, she had no idea that her life would be upturned by the arrival of Sebastian’s younger, playboy brother.
Of course, Theo and Bree are both text-book gorgeous, but their lives are so far apart, there’s no way that they can have a future together. Bree had left the bright lights of London behind her when she moved back to the Yorkshire village to live with her aunt at the local bakery. Now enjoying a much less demanding lifestyle, she’s not interested in Theo’s flashy ways. At least, that’s what she keeps telling herself.
Except for mentions of Sebastian, Flick and Angel, the story revolves around Bree and Theo. They are looking after Flick’s B&B and have a family staying there but we only meet Becca, the family’s daughter. This creates an almost two-hander story which features flirtatious exchanges batted back and forth like a tennis ball at Wimbledon.
Neither Theo nor Bree are looking for commitment and they are happy to enjoy their time spent in B&B seclusion. Until the goalposts are moved and Theo invites Bree to Paris for a no-strings holiday.
Every now and again I love to read a story that is just pure romance and Rachael Stewart always delivers exactly what I’m looking for. This is a perfect escape with some delicious baking and a wonderful ending.
Rachael Stewart adores conjuring up stories for the readers of Harlequin Mills & Boon and Deep Desires Press, with tales varying from the heartwarmingly romantic to the wildly erotic.
She’s been writing since she could put pen to paper as the stacks of scrawled on A4 sheets in her loft will attest to, and the lovingly bound short stories that her father would run off at work and proudly share out with his colleagues. Thinking it was a pipe dream to be published one day, she pursued a sensible career in business but she was really play-acting, achieving the appropriate degree and spending many years in the corporate world where she never truly belonged. Always happiest when she was sat at her laptop in the quiet hours tapping out a story or two. And so here she is, a published author, her full-time pleasure, a dream come true.
A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she’s not glued to her laptop, she’s wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.
