Luz Alana Heith-Benzan is headed to the 1889 Exposition Universelle in Paris with her little sister, her two best friends, and a mission: create a European market for the rum made by her family business in the Dominican Republic. Falling in love is not even a consideration. But when she and James Evanston Sinclair, Earl of Darnick, realize they both have something to gain from a marriage of convenience—Luz would be able to access her inheritance, Evan could gain control of his late mother’s distillery—they each secretly long for it to be a love match as well. But Evan is keeping something secret from Luz, and she’s determined to find out what. Herrera (“Dreamers” series) kicks off the “Las Leonas” series with this effervescent historical featuring a vibrant setting, steamy love scenes, and fully realized characters. Readers will be enchanted.
VERDICT An essential purchase for libraries.
