I’d somehow missed the fact that The Millionaire’s Proposal was a Harlequin’s Romance, and as I unpacked the book I found myself groaning inwardly. Yes, I was prejudiced and wasn’t expecting much. Imagine then my surprise when I found myself totally blown away by the book–not only enjoying it, but actually giggling and sighing as I read! Harlequin Romances have come a long way since I was first introduced to them 15 years ago!
Kerry Doyle is on the trip of a lifetime–a trip around the world! Only… how great is it to travel all alone? She quickly realizes that joys are better shared, and that no matter how wonderful the experiences she has, they will be just a bit bland, a bit empty, when experienced all alone. Fortunately for her Ronan O’Keefe, globe trotter extraordinaire, offers his services as he promises to take her on a privately guided tour of the world, on the condition that he is allowed to use her experiences for the next guide book he is writing. Sounds like a win-win situation, right? Kerry throws caution to the wind and decides to follow this handsome stranger, trusting her female intuition to guide her through.
What she hadn’t counted on was being swept off her feet by his charms and falling head over heels in love with him. Nor that he’d fall for her as well. But they each have a secret burden to bear: Do they dare trust each other with it and give their whirlwind relationship a chance?
Trish Wylie provides her readers with romance at its best. No bare-chested heroes, no busty damsels in distress who have to be rescued from a villainous monster, but simply a man and a woman who happen to meet up at the right time at the right place. They’re real people, whom you and I can identify with without problems. Combining this with Trish’ fantasy-inducing descriptions of the exotic places that Ronan and Kerry visit, and you end up with a novel that has the reader sighing to go explore the world for herself.
The Millionaire’s Proposal is the perfect book to disappear into on a rainy afternoon and just escape the humdrumness of everyday life for a while.
Armchair Interviews says: This is a nice love story from this prolific romance writer.
