Mills and Boon
About the book…
A second chance…
With the single dad?
When hotelier Sophia Lambert finds billionaire Jack McGregor’s runaway daughter, a thank you dinner sounds harmless. Until Sophia finds herself tantalizingly attracted to Jack… The deeply desirable single dad re-awakens long-buried emotions in Sophia, but his jet-set life is beckoning. Unless Sophia can tempt him with her own proposal: to keep his feet on the ground…
Oh my heart!
If you had told me I would be as besot with this story as I was/am, I’d have quirked an eyebrow, but still carried on reading.
Sophia and Jack were right for each other for all the wrong reasons, or at least they seemed wrong to them, and though the timing wasn’t perfect in either of their lives, THAT’S how love is...or so I’m told! It comes along when you least expect it, and my golly, these two SO DID NOT expect it. We go from Sophia finding the lost little girl (who wasn’t really lost, merely sating her desire to reach the stars!) to her being walloped by the instant connection she feels with the father (our man Jack), fielding dinner invites and play dates to sorting out exactly what they want from each other versus what they need and what they feel they can actually give! Then there’s Jack who is yes, a billionaire, but it didn’t come easy and the hours are long...seemingly TOO long for a normal life, and so he’s turned off that part of himself, turned away from any closeness that could infringe on his two main focuses in life...his daughter and his business...but there’s no turning away from what he feels for Sophia, and to him, that’s a problem. Oh and did I mention they are both carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders for things that were never truly their fault? Yeah, that too...is it any wonder that neither was looking to engage...and yet...fate does like to get her kicks.
Speaking of kicks, fate, and characters you can’t forget, can we step away from the potential love story for a second and talk about Lilly? Yeah, Lilly is the precocious, precious, and utterly tuned in five-going-on-six-going-on-twenty year old that is Jack’s daughter and not only is she the apple of his eye, she’s the real sweetheart of the story! It’s her infatuation with the heavens that created the meet-cute between her father and Sophia. It’s her innocent request for Sophia’s company that creates the next meeting that can’t be turned down. She plays an integral part of bringing them together...and unfortunately breaking them apart (so not her fault)...and seeing her grow from content world traveler to a little girl enjoying the perks of being just that, a little girl...was truly magical.
So, in the end, it was a sweet romance with just enough heat to keep things rolling, but oh so much heart that you won’t be able to turn away from the page!
About the author…
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.
