About the Author:
Rachael Stewart adores conjuring up stories for the readers of Harlequin Mills & Boon and Deep Desires Press, with tales varying from the heartwarmingly romantic to the wildly erotic.She’s been writing since she could put pen to paper as the stacks of scrawled on A4 sheets in her loft will attest to, and the lovingly bound short stories that her father would run off at work and proudly share out with his colleagues. Thinking it was a pipe dream to be published one day, she pursued a sensible career in business but she was really play-acting, achieving the appropriate degree and spending many years in the corporate world where she never truly belonged. Always happiest when she was sat at her laptop in the quiet hours tapping out a story or two. And so here she is, a published author, her full-time pleasure, a dream come true.A Welsh lass at heart, she now lives in Yorkshire with her husband and three children, and if she’s not glued to her laptop, she’s wrapped up in them or enjoying the great outdoors seeking out inspiration.

Freddie and Jasmine were once engaged and they thought what they had was in the past. Each has got on with life, or tried to, but they have not been lucky in love again.
“M” Dating Agency is known for sweeping potential love matches off to exotic locations. When Freddie is one of the chosen ones, the last person he ever expects to see is Jasmine.
I love Mills and Boon romances. I know there are so many by different authors. Rachael Stewart is a new author to me, and how talented she is!
I felt a book with this type of plot could have gone either way and been hot and engrossing or written in a less engaging manner since I have had different experiences with books with similar plots.
Fortunately, I was hooked by it. I immediately got inside each character and loved the way their past came out in inner thoughts. All the conversation surrounding them meeting again was natural for the circumstances and I got the feeling pretty early on that both Jasmine and Freddie were complex characters.
Freddie is Scottish but has moved to the US and I liked how we learnt so much just from a small mention of the changes to his accent. That was enough for me to understand how Jasmine felt at his moving on.
The initial meeting was so well done that I could feel the awkwardness, the not knowing if they wanted to be in the same room but having to be because of the date circumstances. The wanting to remember some things and not others. It was just so true-to-life.
A lot of the book is inner dialogue, but I didn’t mind that as the characters are so well fleshed out. I wanted to know every little thing about them.
Jasmine is the more sensitive of the two, and I was proud of the way she pulled herself together when tears threatened. I identified with being sensitive. This to me shows she’s real.
Surprise Reunion with His Cinderella is the second book in the Billion-Dollar Matches series, and I so want to get a copy of the others. I was really looking for a gripping excapist read with characters to root for and that’s what this is.
I was wondering fom the start if Jasmine and Freddie would have a HEA (Happily Ever After) whether it be as lovers or friends and wondering about that had me racing through the book. The writing style is contagiously gripping and I loved the blind date will-they-won’t they premise.
The Seychelles is a beautiful location on my dream vacation list and that came alive in this novel too.
Whether you yourself have been lucky in love or not as I have been, Freddie, Jasmine and the Seychelles will captivate you.
I have had some disaster dates that were blind dates but I enjoyed this all the same.
Surprise Reunion with His Cinderella is a standalone novel within a romance series.
