The Rebel and HeiressThe Rebel and the Heiress by Michelle Douglas

Nell Smythe-Whittaker is determined to make it on her own. She’s inherited a big old mansion but no money. What she does have is a talent for fancy cupcakes. Mix those together with big dreams and she’s out to prove she’s capable of succeeding big time, and thumb her nose at her unsupportive parents and friends. But first of all she has a death-bed promise to fulfil and to do that she must contact the bad boy from her past, the one she still can’t get out of her head. She’s always believed he is more than the reputation surrounding him and there’s that connection from the past that has always left her feeling guilty. Somehow she needs to make it up to him, even if it’s only in a very small way.

Rick Bradford has had very little in the way of beauty and kindness in his life. The one small glimpse was Nell Smythe-Whittaker. He has never forgotten the kindness she showed him, even if it did get him into trouble with the police. From then on, he has avoided her. Boys like him do not get to mix with girls like her. But now, she has contacted him, asking him to come to her house. He could easily ignore the summons and leave town. He’s got no reason to stay and moving on is always better for him. People don’t like to think he’s staying around. Not with his background. But curiosity gets the better of him and he finds he wants to know just why the Princess is summoning him to her tower. That decision will bring some totally unforeseen shocks and revelations to Rick that will have him questioning who he is and what he wants to do. And being that close to Nell is causing him to rethink his decision to constantly move on. Maybe it’s time he stayed. Rick finds himself admiring Nell. There’s a lot more to her than the perception he’s always carried. Gone is the pampered Princess and in her place is a feisty lady full of courage and determination.

Michelle Douglas has written a delightfully sweet romance about two people who think they have nothing in common. Working together to solve a family mystery shows them they not only have a mutual attraction, but also a growing respect and common goals. All they have to do is give in, work together and gather family and friends around them. A sweet and easy entertaining read.
