Bought to Carry His Heir by Jane Porter

Bought to Carry His Heir by Jane Porter

Bought to Carry His Heir is the latest by one of my favourite Harlequin Presents / Mills and Boon Modern authors.

Not just a new Jane Porter, but the Beauty & the Beast trope!

And, despite initial reservations about bonding with her because of the surrogacy, it didn’t take long to warm to the heroine. She makes a flawed decision which she then has to live with, and protect herself from, and her child.

One of the hero’s reasons for choosing her as a surrogate also distanced me.

But the hero and heroine’s emotions, actions and reactions are very real, and I soon didn’t feel the need to test the story foundations because I trusted the writer.

I enjoyed the relationship dynamic and the exploration of their issues. I was on the same page as the characters emotionally, cheered when the heroine comes to the conclusion that you’ve been willing her to make, and cried when she cries.

I missed some of the glitz and glam and drama that I come to Harlequin Presents/M&B Modern for and some of the drama that I especially come back to Jane Porter's Presents for, but I trusted her to deliver the fast paced, unputdownable read with strong emotional foundations on which to build their Happily Ever After.
