Secrets Behind The Billionaire’s Return (Claiming the Ferrington Empire, Book 1)
Has he returned to claim her heart…?
In this Claiming the Ferrington Empire story, sixteen years ago Felicity fell in love with the boy from Ferrington Manor. But when Sebastian vanished she was left with the secret consequence of their love… And now he’s back! Will the revelations about his departure be enough for Felicity to succumb to the feelings that still draw her to him?
I could not resist bumping this straight to the top of my reading list and I am so glad I did because I LOVED it!
I do love Rachael Stewart’s writing. Her books are like a breath of fresh air for me and this one was no exception. I do love a good romance and Rachael Stewart knows how to write a love story!
I loved all the characters in this book. Felicity and her daughter, Angel, are instantly likeable. They share a very close relationship which is heart-warming as mother/daughter relationships can often be quite fractious, especially during the teenage years. Their relationship is very warm and genuine though, and both are inspiring characters.
Sebastian is an extremely charismatic character. He’s obviously very easy on the eye 😉 He has quite the heart-wrenching backstory though and I really did feel for him although to an outsider looking in you would think he shouldn’t have a care in the world. It just goes to prove that money isn’t everything.
I absolutely adored Felicity and Sebastian’s story. Their lives couldn’t be any more different these days but the chemistry between them is off the chart! There is almost a magnetic like force drawing them to each other, however hard they try to resist. I was rooting for them from the very beginning. Things are rarely straight forward, especially when children are involved, but to deny yourself a future full of such passion would be a crime.
This is such a beautifully written love story. I can’t recommend it highly enough! I am over the moon it’s the first of a trilogy. I can’t wait for book 2!
