Book Review: Secrets Behind the Billionaire's a special giveaway

By Sara Steven

Find out what happens when a billionaire returns to Felicity’s life in book one of Rachael Stewart’s new duet, Claiming the Ferrington Empire, from Harlequin Romance.

The man she never forgot…The feelings she never lost…

Sixteen years ago, Felicity fell in love with the boy from Ferrington Manor. But their affair was short-lived when Sebastian vanished and she was left with the secret consequence of their love. Now he’s back and his return sends shock waves through Felicity! Will the revelations about Sebastian’s departure be enough for Felicity to succumb to the feelings that still draw her to him? (Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads)

This was an excellent start into the Claiming the Ferrington Empire series. Felicity, nicknamed Flick, had fallen in love with Sebastian when they were teenagers and she swore their love would last forever. Yet, Sebastian suddenly left their small town behind and despite Flick’s efforts in finding him, or hoping that he’d someday return, she had to let go of what they’d had and move on with her life, for several important reasons. 

When he returns sixteen years later, there are many different emotions that Flick has to sort through, and Rachael Stewart did a great job of showing that. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to feel as though I’d lost the love of my life, only to have him return years later–would the emotions remain the same, or would his disappearance taint the past? 

And even if the emotions are there, how can they ever mend the rift that time has created? While Flick has always known that Sebastian had come from money, things are a lot different when the man she’d been in love with is now a billionaire, given her own economic standing. She’s unsure of whether she’d be good enough for him, but he also wonders the same thing–if he would ever be good enough for her, given his past. 

I really loved the chemistry between the two characters! Amidst the fears and emotions is an undercurrent of heat–much appreciated in a Harlequin Romance read. I had a really hard time putting this one down, and I’m looking forward to the second book in this series, featuring Sebastian’s brother Theo and Flick’s friend and coworker, Bree. There were some alluded scenes within Secrets that let me know Theo and Bree’s scenario will most likely follow in the footsteps of its predecessor…a dynamite, five-star experience!

Thanks to Rachel's Random Resources for the book in exchange for an honest review.

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.
