To prevent a media scandal, she needs to find reclusive Dominik James—her boss’s estranged brother—and convince him to marry her!

Once they’ve exchanged their convenient ‘I do’s’, will innocent Lauren accept that their hunger can’t be denied…?

Unapologetic Fairytale, 4 Stars 🌟

Rating By Clare,15/05/2019

When Lauren Clarke sets off on her bosses latest errand, to find his estranged brother in the depths of the Hungarian forestry; she doesn't expect to find Dominik James's beautiful secluded forest hideaway so enticing. For a city loving women it shouldn't appeal to her or make her think of romanticised fairytales, but something about Dominik's untamed darkness and his enchanting home draw Lauren and awaken her longing for something more than her job and being needed by her boss; but can Lauren show Dominik he is wanted and has a place in this world with both her and his family and in doing so can they save each other for a fairytale HEA! Ms Caitlin Crews 50th book is an unapologetic fairytale for true romantics, although the premise of the book is a little hard to believe! Once you embrace the fairytale, the exceptionally written emotive closing chapters make for a HEA for even the most hardened of hearts. So if you are a fan of romance and enjoy an element of make-believe then Untamed Billionaire's Innocent Bride is a must read and for more from the Combe Family Scandals mini-series then I would also recommend The Italian's Twin Consequences (and His Two Royal Secrets coming soon) also written by Ms Caitlin Crews. For your information, I received my copy from Netgalley and Mills and Boon via Mills and Boon Insiders however, this does not influence my opinions as all opinions are my own.

Once upon a time…

Rating By Sue,29/05/2019

a reader raced back to Caitlin Crews’ Harlequin Presents / Mills & Boon Modern because she craved a strong Presents’ voice. Luckily for her, this one fell into her lap via NetGalley. And if she’d known this was a fairytale Presents, and the one with the big bad wolf, then let me tell you she’d have been walking through the deep, dark woods all the sooner…. My first impression of the heroine was that Lauren is strongly characterised and her voice and personality really shine through. It’s impossible not to enter the story in her unsensible shoes. Even before I discovered that this has the fairytale element—I’d also, unknowingly, been craving—from the heroine walking through a Hungarian forest alone and how my imagination was conjuring up wolves when the writer had given them nary a mention. Hero first impression: Dominik promises different, promises intelligence, promises bad boy. Yum. I loved the sense of place and how the setting isn’t a generic, tick-list rich-man’s world. Loved the foreboding and anticipation of the first meet and discussion of fairytales. Loved the relationship intensity of the book’s first half condensed over a few days. I so wanted this to be a five-star read, and didn’t want to fall out of love with the heroine; but there were times reader when I really wanted her to think about how the hero was feeling. At the same time, understanding why she enthusiastically embraces her boss’s orders. I hated how she assumes she has to teach Dominik how to navigate a formal table setting, and hoped it would come back to bite her. The motivation for the marriage doesn’t come from either character and denies them some agency. But Dominik works the situation to his advantage whilst at the same time not to his advantage. The transaction he stipulates, and she agrees to, felt a bit...off, but that’s not the only motivator and it’s a reason to give both characters what they want…. The bits that gave me pause do have that dark fairytale vibe and he is the wolf after all. Dominik humiliates Lauren here and I didn’t like it whatever their true motivations, and that she probably deserved it. Beware keeping a wolf on a leash, all the better to bite you. So they each have flawed/unheroic moments where I fell a little out of love with both of them from time to time, but never quite stayed that way. One minute I was feeling slightly disconnected from what Lauren was feeling and the next I was crying for her! The Black Moment is emotional and the Happily Ever After put a smile back on my face. I was wary that the epilogue takes place 12 years later, but I needn’t have been, it’s absolutely gorgeous. Because it's Caitlin’s voice, because Red Riding Hood, because wolves, because I got the San Giacamo estate in the epilogue and the epilogue is to-die-for, because it’s an eat-in-one-sitting read and mostly because this feels like it’s written just for me and is most definitely a keeper: Five fairytale Presents stars. Received from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
