Book Review: Claiming Her Billion-Dollar Birthright by Maureen Child

Back in March I was pretty ill, just out of hospital, and feeling very sorry for myself. While I was browsing the Mills and Boon website I stumbled across the Dynasties bind ups, and I couldn't resist the sound of them. So I put the first one, The Jarrods, in my basket.

Claiming Her Billion-Dollar Birthright by Maureen Child is a gorgeous read with one of my all time favourite romance tropes. It's a young women finding herself and falling in love in a gorgeous, remote, luxury resort. Pure escapism.

The revelation turned Erica Prentice's world upside down - by birth, she belonged to a wealthy Colorado dynasty and her real father had left her a fortune. And the Jarrod family attorney, Christian Hanford, was there to show her the ropes.

As Mr. Tall, Dark and Handsome escorted her around Aspen, Erica was in for a second shock - her fiery attraction to the strictly off-limits attorney.

Fraternizing with the Jarrod heiress could get Christian fired.

Which would she choose: duty to her family dynasty... Or desire for a dynamic bachelor?

5 Word Review: Family, responsibility, honesty, passion, love.

You know when you pick up a book and it's exactly what you need? This was exactly what I needed.

I read this book in the garden, in the shade of a blossom tree, drinking sparkling grape juice from a champagne flute. Something about this book just called for relaxation and a touch of extravagance.

Reading Claiming Her Billion-Dollar Birthright, I wanted so badly to be at Jarrod Ridge. It sounds incredible, the descriptions of it pretty much took my breath away. The views, the resort itself, the food and drink. Urgh, can I go there please and thank you.

The Jarrod family very quickly worked their way in to my heart - I think my favourite of the family was Melissa, she's just so genuinely lovely and good and a decent human. Erica is very much out of place, and Melissa makes her feel so welcoming. Such wholesome.

I really liked the relationship between Erica and Christian. I liked the mutual respect and the back-and-forth and the build up of passion. I loved the little misunderstandings and the way they wanted to hold back but found it impossible. This is a fiery romance, and totally addictive.

Each book in the series, and the anthology, can absolutely be read as a standalone even as it follows the family.

I absolutely loved the first story in Dynasties: The Jarrods, and I will absolutely read on. I can't wait to find out what's in store for the rest of the family.
