Book CoverVeena’s review of A Baby To Bind His Bride by Caitlin Crews
Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 01 Jan 18

This story has a fascinating start with strong characters and a nicely romantic end. It’s a little soft in the middle, but for a person who’s been off on a lot of stories lately, it makes for good reading.

Leo Betancur is presumed dead in a helicopter crash shortly after his marriage to virginal Susannah. Susannah dons the mantle of the Widow Betancur and takes over the running of the company, fending off all the suitors who lust after her wealth and status, while continuing to secretly search for Leonidas.

Susannah’s private investigators finally run him down to earth – leading a cult – in a remote compound close to where his helicopter crashed. Susannah’s arrival brings back some shards of his memory, especially after finally consummating his marriage.

Get set for a lot of twists and turns, as the two find that their delayed wedding night has consequences. Leo has come to rely on this new incarnation of Susannah, who only wants a divorce and a life in peaceful obscurity. As the story moves along, readers get a ringside view into the troubled childhood of both protagonists.

I skipped over parts of the middle, but overall I enjoyed this tale.

Grade: B-
