Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Millionaire under the Mistletoe
Author: Stefanie London
Publisher: Entangled Indulgence, Entangled Publishing
Published: November 14th, 2016
This is a second chance romance involving a wealthy heiress and the self-made millionaire she knew as a teenager. She was brought up in Australia but her roots are back in England. When her paternal grandfather was dying, she promised to spend a month in his home which she inherited from him. She’d spent summers there when she was growing up and has happy memories of the people and place. She also has memories of being rejected by Evan Ross, someone whose Mum worked on the estate and who her grandfather mentored and guided. Now Evan wants to buy the estate from her but his rejection of her when she was eighteen really upset her, especially as she’d had a secret crush on him for years and felt isolated, unable to relate to her peers and rejected by her mother. Now she’s had additional relationship difficulties and is determined to protect her heart from further pain but will either of them be able to ignore the attraction between them? Will their pasts prevent them giving love a chance?
This story is set in England during December. The characters are well developed with very different but still traumatic pasts which influence their relationships with others dramatically. There are some great secondary characters – especially Matt and Ethel (and no, they aren’t a couple!) It is an enjoyable second chance romance in a festive English countryside and London.
I obtained an ARC of this novel via NetGalley and chose to read and review it.
It’s so nice when he’s naughty
Stella Jackson would rather stab herself in the eye with her own stiletto than return to England. Especially in winter. But to fulfill her grandfather’s last wish, she has to spend Christmas at the estate she inherited from him…with the one man she wishes she could forget.
Self-made millionaire Evan Foss wants one thing from Stella—her estate. But thanks to their rocky past, he’s the last person she’ll sell to. So when she takes him up on a bet, with the estate as the prize, Evan can’t believe his luck. The only problem is that seeing her now, sexy and all grown up, tempts Evan to finish what started years ago between them.
