💬 What's the last romance that made you SWOON?

For me, it was A Caribbean Heiress in Paris. I loved Luz and Evan so much! I can't wait for the 2nd book in Las Leonas series, An Island Princess Starts a Scandal. I know Manuela's story is gonna be 🌶️. Also excited to explore the art world instead of rum/whiskey world in the first book.

Thanks for reading!

See ya,
