Last month, Secrets Behind the Billionaire’s Return went on tour with Rachel’s Random Resources and I’m so excited to share with you my highlights of the day…and maybe even tempt you into grabbing a copy if you haven’t read it already!
Before I dive on in, I just want to say a massive thank you to all the bloggers who took part and to Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources for organising the day. It truly is an amazing feeling seeing your book out in the world and getting to read the honest thoughts of all you fabulous book bloggers, Sebastian and Flick, and their creator are overjoyed — thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
Now without further ado, here’s what the bloggers had to say…
“A heartwarming story of a love that was lost
A love that came with an unexpected cost…
With plans, surprises, paparazzi and more
This is the sort of read I adore”Splashes into Books
“Overall Rachael has brought readers another great read that is easy to get stuck into. It’s full of characters that readers can fall in love with and chemistry that sizzles.”Lemon Nail Fiend, Book Blogger
“…a beautiful story about forgiveness, second chances and family.
I absolutely enjoyed reading this story, it ticked all the boxes I expected from Rachael Stewart. And now I am very eagerly waiting for the second part of this series…”Tizi’s Book Review Blog
“This second chance love story was just what I needed, and it was the perfect palate cleanser after a couple of more demanding books. I was delighted to discover that this is the first in a new duet…
I can highly recommend this escape to the Yorkshire Countryside.”Book Escapes with Babs
“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…a dynamite, five-star experience!”Sara Steven for Chick Lit Central
“Poignant, uplifting and intense, Secrets Behind the Billionaire’s Return is a heartfelt tale about healing from the past, fresh starts and finding your soulmate that hits all the right notes.
With a brooding hero readers will love and a wonderful heroine it is impossible not to root for, Secrets Behind the Billionaire’s Return is a great big hug of a book from the outstanding Rachael Stewart.”Julie, Bookish Jottings
“Rachael’s written books with domestic violence involved previously…this new take on the generational aspect of it brought a new take on it that was quite interesting.
I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for when the second book comes along to find out about how Sebastian’s brother coped with it!”Proud Book Reviews
“Full of angst, passion and romance, this is a lovely story. Felicity is an easy character to like. Sebastian is troubled, and their second chance takes them through many emotions. A heartwarming read with realistic circumstances and a lovely romantic conclusion.”Jane Hunt, Author & Book Blogger
“I absolutely adored this book. The storyline was warm and captivating. It was easy to connect with the characters … a slow burn romance, that suited the storyline and pace perfectly especially as the plot revolves around two lovers meeting again after a significant period of time.
This is the first book in the Claiming the Ferrington Empire series and I honestly can’t wait to read the next book.”Book Shortie
“Rachael Stewarts’ books are always a lovely read. They make you feel safe, while still feeling excited to read about her next couple and get swept away into their lives.
It’s a story full of wonderful characters who really make you feel Rachael has a real talent for getting a couple’s feelings and chemistry to jump off the page. It’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon reading.”T B Honest Book Reviews
“This is a carefully written and thoughtful book which sets up an interesting set of circumstances … a clever bringing together of two people, two world views, and much more, as well as a look at various themes such as the influence of money, memory and more. I look forward to reading more…”Northern Reader Book Blog
“⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sweet, sexy, emotional with a touch of angst, SBtBR is what the True Love imprint is all about, and why I’ll always wear my Rachael Stewart Fangirl insignia (metaphorically speaking) with pride.”Laura of Tangents & Tissues Book Blog
“Overall, this was a steamy and romantic read with engaging characters – brooding Sebastian, sensible Felicity, and a special mention to Felicity’s daughter Angel, who despite her heavenly name is the most down-to-earth, relatable character.
I’m sure this will tick many boxes for people – billionaire, second chance, secret baby, even some forced proximity. If any of that sounds like it will hit the spot, I recommend you pick this book up!”Lauren of Reviews in Heels
This is a beautifully written book … A sweet and charming second-chance romance.
An ideal read on a lazy afternoon.”Kirsty Reviews Books
“I enjoyed this story and the characters within it. The different dynamics between all the people are well thought out and consistent.
It’s an enjoyable, well written book and I definitely recommend it.”Nets Reads Books
“Secrets Behind The Billionaire’s Return is my favourite of the Mills and Boon True Love series!
I absolutely loved Flick and Sebastian’s Second Chance story – especially because the reunion was 16 years in the making and the very big secret that Flick had to share! It definitely gave this story a completely different feel to others I have read and I loved every second of it.
Score: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”As Read By Danielle
“Rachael’s books are romances that are beautifully written, heartwarming, with a sprinkle of emotion thrown in for good measure.
I loved the two main characters, Felicity and Sebastian and their chemistry was amazing.Emma, Mrs L J Gibbs, Book Blogger
This is the first book in a series and I am extremely happy that there are more books to come……. 💜”
“I have read a lot of romance, but I have never come across another author who can write such heart-stopping, fragile and raw angsty emotion with real passion and eloquent dignity for the characters, Rachael’s writing tugs at your heart from the first page, and then repairs it again by the last.
Rachael Stewart really is the queen of romance, she never (ever) puts a toe out of place, she never (ever) fails to entice and make you fall head-over-heels in love and whisk you away on a heart-warming, emotional and spellbinding journey of finding love.”Frankie, Chicks, Rogues and Scandals
I loved reading Felicity and Sebastians story, leaning more about them as characters and Angel was totally amazing, she is the kind of daughter that any mother would love to have and seeing her develop and become accustomed to her father suddenly being in her life made her come alive to me.
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy a romance where the main characters come back together after a long time but still can’t deny what is between them, set in an amazing location which will catch your attention from the very start.”Anna’s Book Blog
“When I got to and finished the epilogue I swear I had little hearts in my eyes. It’s everything I want in a romance. Everything I want in a Mills & Boon.
Another sure fire winner and undoubtedly 5 stars for a fantastic romance.”Jo Reads Romance
“I haven’t read a Harlequin Romance book in a very long time and this book has made me remember what I loved about them.
I loved the romance, the drama … I can’t wait to read the next book in the Claiming the Ferrington Empire duet.”Evelyn Jane Thorne
“Another page turner from this author that pulls at your heartstrings and makes you fall in love with the characters so easily. The beginning of a series that I am looking forward to reading more from.”Beyond the Books
“Secrets Behind the Billionaire’s Return is a detailed fast paced story…
it is a character driven emotional tale filled with heartwarming scenes, shocks, tragedy, and true love as we follow the character as they seek their HEA…”Quirky Book Reads
“I LOVED this book, I loved the characters, the setting, the B&B (I need to find a quaint place like that), just everything.
It’s a beautiful story of love, loss, family bonds and of course in true Rachael style a dash of sauciness. I can’t wait for the second instalment.”Karen and Her Books
