The Trophy Wife Rocks!

Today I would like to review a fantastic new book from Harlequin Presents, The Trophy Wife by Janette Kenny. If you have visited here with us much at all you will know that I am a huge Harlequin Presents fan. They were the first romance books that I ever read and while I don't think I could ever write one, I love the way they sweep me away to wonderful worlds of romance and excitement!

The Trophy Wife delivers all of the glorious settings and glamor that you would expect from a Presents book. What stood out about The Trophy Wife, is how it deals with the struggle that is often common for couples in any income bracket--feeling as if they are losing each other, but being fearful of revealing private fears and vulnerabilities. Even though the hero, Rafael, is a super wealthy businessman, he is afraid that he will never be enough; meanwhile, his supermodel wife, Leila, is terrified of losing control of her life. The way they love each other so much and yet try so hard to keep their facades up is a true slice of reality. I won't spoil the story for you, but I will say that I loved how, in the end, love conquered all. After all, that happily ever after is what we all want!

The Wonderful Janette Kenny
The Trophy Wife was a December release but I am sure you can still
order it and, in my opinion, you won't regret going that extra mile to get
a great story!!

Do you enjoy the glamor and glitz of a Harlequin Presents style romance or do you prefer your romances to be more of a slice of real life?


  1. Thanks for the review, Stephanie! I'll be sure to read this title. : )

    Like many, Harlequin Presents was my introduction to the world of Romance. It swept me away from the world I lived in and gave me hope that love would someday find little ol' me.

    Nowadays, I tend to like a slice of reality, but I'm also enjoying a new discovery of the Presents line. I guess I just love love....no matter the form it comes in...reality, suspense, intrigue, fantasy, just whatever. <3

  2. Thanks for sharing your find Stephanie! I do like a slice of real life but then again, who wouldn't want to be a Trophy Wife? ~g~

  3. Oh! This book is in my TBR pile. I must read it this weekend! Thanks for sharing such a great review of Janette's book, Stephanie!

    I love a satisfying HEA! Presents is such a great line with Alpha heroes that will make you sigh with longing. Gotta love a man who knows what he wants and will do whatever it takes to keep it, especially after the perfect woman shows him what that is. ;)

  4. Presents takes you away. I love the jewels, the clothes, the glitz! And Janette is an excellent ship captain!

    Which is really the only way I'd get on a ship. Scared of ships.

    Also, Janette knows about some cowboys.

    This is only marginally related. Take a gander at the shoes in this blog. You will have to cut an paste it.


  5. Lesia, I agree with you that romance is great where ever we find it. I am not much on the slice of life type of thing. I guess I just see to much real life every day!

    Cheryl, aren't you a Trophy Wife? Blonde, tan, thin, sounds like it to me. :-)

    Kathy, you will love this Alpha hero, he is all about protecting his family!

    Jean, I will have take a look at that blog! Thanks for sharing it.
