#ClainingMyHiddenSon

My contract bride’s secret…

…is about to turn my world upside down!

My marriage to Calypso was simply business. Until our unexpectedly passionate wedding, night shook us both! Unwilling to muddy our convenient arrangement with such inconvenient emotions, I reluctantly left. Now discovering the baby in my estranged wife’s arms is mine, it’s about securing my legacy. I will claim my son and again enjoy the one thing Calypso cannot hide—the chemistry that still sizzles between us…

I received a copy of this book from Mills and Boon via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

An interesting interpretation of the marriage of convenience trope.

Callie and Axios are not in love, their marriage is a business arrangement, Callie is a pawn in her father’s business empire, and appears to have little say in the matter. Axios is powerful and successful but is still prepared to sacrifice his happiness for the good of his family and their business success.

Everything is not as it seems in this story. Callie has a reason for her compliance and a secret. Both are attracted unwillingly to the other, and the passion is evident from the start, but just when you believe they may have a chance, Callie’s life is rocked by a devastating discovery.

This story took a while to get into and to empathise with the characters and their situation, but I got there. I found this to be a lovely romance, with many poignant moments that tugged at the heartstrings. The ending is a little contrived, but a happy-ever-after is an expectation of this type of romance.
