Cinderella’s scandalous secret

Their forbidden passion had consequences!

Overwhelming. Irresistible. Off-limits. Teo de Luz was all those things to innocent Amelia. Until she attends his opulent masquerade ball, and they share a deliciously anonymous encounter! Now Amelia must tell this brooding Spaniard he’s the father of her unborn child.

Teo can’t forget his runaway Cinderella, but discovering her true identity stuns him. His loathing of Amelia’s family means he cannot dismiss her deception! He will marry her. He will claim his heir. And he’ll exact a sensual revenge on Amelia, one pleasurable night at a time…

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

My Thoughts…

Amelia is such a capable character, constantly sorting through the debris of her mother’s constant affairs and marriages. She doesn’t have time for weakness, especially now when she’s finally claimed her life back and is contently living in San Francisco.

Teo, her older now ex-stepbrother, has always been her weakness, something she decided to exorcise by visiting his family’s Masquerade ball a few months earlier. She wore a mask and a heavy disguise, and when the inevitable happened, ran away like Cinderella, into the night. Now, she’s back at the fairy tale castle, forced to share the consequence of her out of character mistake, and reveal that she was his mysterious passionate partner that night.

It’s impossible not to like this modern-day Cinderella and her humour. She truly ruffles Teo’s stern outward facade, in more way than they both imagined possible. His solution is more of a punishment for Amelia, but she finds a way to get under his skin, and soon his heart rebels against his head, but will it be enough for a happy ending?

The chemistry changes from caustic to molten, the more time the couple spend together. There are many conflicts to overcome, but like all good fairytales, this one has a happy conclusion

Great characters, a wonderful modern adaptation of a fairy tale classic and a lovely balance of sarcastic banter and charming romance.
