"A lively and light romance to bring Spring sunshine to your winter"

Fresh Fiction Review

Holiday with the Millionaire

The cover of HOLIDAY WITH THE MILLIONAIRE held instant appeal for me. The bright colours, cheerful tone and holiday of a lifetime theme won me so fast, I didn't blink. Winter has been long enough and the book looks like spring, with an author new to me to explore. HOLIDAY WITH THE MILLIONAIRE is a lively and light romance.

Lara Callaway works as a nanny in London, but when she finds the truth about her cheating rat boyfriend she walks out and asks to stay with her employers. They're heading off on holiday, but she's been with them for six months so they unquestioningly hand over the keys to the fine townhouse. She's also got her own holiday trip booked, a Mediterranean cruise, and she decides to go without the rat. That night however a pal of her employers, who has an arrangement that he can stay in their place if he needs to, arrives in the dark and the panicked Lara clocks him with a statuette. Fine mess for the police to sort out!

Reuben Tyler is a sports agent, used to hopping on planes, not used to pretty girls hitting him over the head. Maybe it's because she manages children, but once they get talking, Lara takes control of the situation and the handsome guy speedily. Pity she can't take back control of her life. Reuben silently decides that not only are they shopping in Harrods, but Lara is going to enjoy the holiday cruise of a lifetime. He's over-stressed and needs a break.

I enjoyed the way Reuben not only is self-deprecating but cheerily disparages his athlete clients, saying they are like kids, rather than bragging about their fame and fees. There is something of the child in the sweetshop about the way Lara is tempted with clothing she can't afford. We know this is a fantasy romance story, like picturing yourself winning the lottery. Luckily Reuben is actually a decent guy, because the girl could wind up in a lot of trouble. Don't misunderstand - Reuben's after the same thing as just about every other man. But he's not going to kidnap the lady or anything, just have a fun and harmless fling. He thinks.

I learnt a lavender fizz cocktail is made of champagne, lavender syrup and raspberry puree; as drunk in Monte Carlo. Tour the sunny cities with Scarlet Wilson's HOLIDAY WITH THE MILLIONAIRE which is a fun romance suitable for all age groups.
