Publication Day: Beauty And The Reclusive Millionaire by Rachael Stewart (with giveaway!)

An unforgettable Greek escape…
with the man she never forgot! 

A-list actress Catherine Wilde has it all, but behind closed doors she is fighting personal battles. So the chance to escape to the private Greek island of her best friend’s brother, Alaric, offers the tranquility she craves. Except seeing Alaric again sets her heart rate soaring. Life might have changed him, but he can still make her feel alive—and when the torch she once held for him reignites, it’s impossible to ignore!

Fleeing from the spotlight, Catherine Wilde opts to spend a month on the private Greek island owned by her best friend's brother. Alaric retreated from the world three years ago after a tragic accident, but Catherine's visit might be the push he needs to live life again - with Catherine at his side.

Quick warning here for a recent miscarriage and exploration with some of the aftermath, along with some disordered eating that is explicitly addressed.

I enjoyed this book! It's a snippet of sun-soaked paradise as two hurting people find the strength to move on. Catherine's neglectful childhood did not set her up to handle success in a healthy manner and Alaric is dealing with a hefty dose of survivor's guilt that has him pushing everyone away. He's a bit of a jerk at first, but it's pretty understandable given the circumstances.

Alaric's staff, especially Dorothea the cook, are hilarious - sometimes a literal Greek chorus doing their very best to fan the romantic sparks into flames from the sidelines! They help relieve some of the sizzling tension between Catherine and Alaric, injecting some common sense into the scenario.

I would've loved to see a bit more resolution around some of the issues they were dealing with in the first place, but the focus is rightly on the romance. If you can't make it to an idyllic Greek island, enjoy this one with a nice glass of red wine.
