About the Book – Out Now!!!
A forbidden love between a Mexican heiress and a shrewd British politician makes for a tantalizing Victorian season.
Ana María Luna Valdés has strived to be the perfect daughter, the perfect niece, and the perfect representative of the powerful Luna family. So when Ana María is secretly sent to London with her sisters to seek refuge from the French occupation of Mexico, she experiences her first taste of freedom far from the judgmental eyes of her domineering father. If only she could ignore the piercing looks she receives across ballroom floors from the austere Mr. Fox.
Gideon Fox elevated himself from the London gutters by chasing his burning desire for more: more opportunities, more choices. For everyone. Now, as a member of Parliament, Gideon is on the cusp of securing the votes he needs to put forth a measure to abolish the Atlantic slave trade once and for all—a cause that is close to his heart as the grandson of a formerly enslaved woman. The charmingly vexing Ana María is a distraction he must ignore.
But when Ana María finds herself in the crosshairs of a nefarious nobleman with his own political agenda, Gideon knows he must offer his hand as protection . . . but will this Mexican heiress win his heart as well?
This was such a fun and unique historical romance! I absolutely loved that there was so much diversity in the characters! This is the first book in a series that follows the Luna sisters who have come to England to escape their home and the war in Mexico. I always enjoy a romance that has good pining and this one really delivered on that. I loved every minute of this story and can’t wait for the sisters books!! Not only was the romance great in this one but so was seeing the relationships between the sisters develop and deepen as well. If you are a fan of historicals or just a good fun romance than I would recommend checking this one out. Highly recommend this one!! Thank you Berkley for my gifted copy for review!
