A Dance To Save The Debutante Eva Shepherd 5*#Review @MillsandBoon @HarlequinBooks #millsandbooninsiders #millsandboonhistorical #harlequinhistorical #historicalromance #evashepherd #victorianromance #histfic #BookReview #ADanceToSaveTheDebutante

A jaded rake

And an innocent debutante…

Seeing Miss Sophia Cooper being rebuffed by a reprobate Duke, Lord Ethan Rosemont does the gentlemanly thing and dances with her himself. He discovers she’s no damsel in distress, but an intelligent woman who’s had enough of the marriage mart. It would be all too easy to give in to the desire fizzing between them – but only if this rake is willing to save her reputation – by marrying her himself…

My Thoughts…

A Dance To Save The Debutante’ is an enjoyable romance between a naive but intelligent debutante and a kind-hearted rake. The story gives an insight into Victorian society’s attitude towards women. Sophia and Ethan’s chemistry and unlikely friendship develop into a gentle and engaging romance full of conflicts and soul searching before their happy ending. The two main characters develop satisfyingly. With touches of forbidden passion and fairytale romance, this is a lovely escapist read.

Banished Prince to Desert Boss Heidi Rice 5*#Review @HeidiRomRice @millsandboon @harlequinbooks #millsandboonmodern #harlequinpresents #Romance #millsanbooninsiders #BanishedPrincetoDesertBoss


Will she be his Cinderella?

Exiled prince Dane’s declaration that he’ll only attend an important royal ball with her as his date sends by-the-book diplomatic aide Jamilla’s pulse skyrocketing. Ignoring protocol for once feels amazing, until their stolen moment of freedom becomes a sizzling scandal…

My Thoughts…

Ambitious and loyal, Jamilla hopes guiding the King of Zafar’s half brother through a vital trade mission will further her career. Dane doesn’t want to be in Zafar but would do anything for his older brother. Sizzling chemistry and misunderstandings define Jamilla and Dane’s first meeting, and Jamilla needs all her diplomatic skills to deal with Dane.

I like the gradual emotional commitment and trust between Jamilla and Dane. The beautifully flawed characters, both with emotional damage from childhood, have a conflicted but deepening relationship.

Vivid settings and vibrant characters make this glamorous romance engaging to read.
