Veena’s review of Prince’s Son ofScandal (Sauveterre Siblings, Book 4) by Dani Collins
Contemporary Romance published by Harlequin Presents 01 Jan 2018
This is a delightful escape from the day-to day-humdrum. In a difficult year where I’ve struggled with enjoying books and stories, it hits the right spot and reminds me why I adore reading romantic fiction.
Trella Sauveterre was kidnapped as a young girl and subjected to unspeakable abuse from her kidnappers. While she is now an astute business woman, she leads a reclusive life, licking her wounds in private. As her siblings fall in love and find their happily ever after, she braves the outside world and attends a charity ball pretending to be her more outgoing twin. Her one night with the handsome crown prince Xavier of Elazar has consequences.
The last thing an engaged Xavier needs is the complication of a child by another woman. A child, by the way, who will be heir to the throne of Elazar with a mother who still haunts his dreams. For Trella this child is a miracle that she never thought possible. Watch out for the fireworks as Trella’s maternal love faces off against Xavier’s business arrangement.
The Sauveterre family is delightful for all their uber wealth. Trella, of course, has had the hardest road of all the siblings, even as she’s loved and protected by every one of them. I admire her character, especially the wedding day and the night when she deals with her anxiety on her own so she can be a better mother.
Thank you, Ms. Collins, for restoring my faith in the power of a good contemporary romance.
Carrying the prince’s secret heir!
