Be aware that this is a re-print, it's only 200 pages long, and there is little-no substance to plot. It doesn't even have real heat in the sex scenes, at least not enough to keep me interested.

If you want to read a story about a perfect and rich senator's daughter falling in love with a reporter (who is also perfect in body) on a tropical island... perhaps this is for you. For me though, it was too perfect, the 'danger' went away without any real conflict or satisfying resolution, and all of the supporting characters (who seemed potentially interesting) didn't get time or opportunity to enrich the story.

For me, the cover is the best part of this book.

Secret Fantasy by Carly Phillips is one of those stories that you read that is quick and easy and is a light romantic read. Fleeing from a scandal, Juliette Stanton is a run-away bride who goes to a fantasy island where she hopes to live out a secret fantasy of being the center of a guy's universe. She meets Doug Houston, and from day one she is smitten. But Doug is actually an undercover reporter trying to get a scoop on a story. He is everything that Juliette has ever wanted from a man, but she doesn't know that he is hiding secrets such as who he really is and what he wants from her.

While this isn't a long book, it's a quick read that gets right to the point and the point is secret fantasies. I thought it was fun and sometimes a bit raunchy, but nothing over the top and nothing to make the reader cringe. It's a good, girly book that I think most genre romance readers would love. I read it along with Beverly Hills Adjacent.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Harlequin Temptation's tantalizing miniseries Fantasies, Inc., Merrilee Schaefer-Weston lives vicariously through the happiness of others. For a hefty fee, she brings guests to Fantasies, Inc, a cluster of four, lush, paradise resorts off the Florida Keys. A stickler about client confidentiality, Merrilee offers people's deepest, most private secrets and desires. At the end of their fantasy, guests have a choice of walking away and continuing as they were before, or accepting a risk that changes their lives. The second novel of this miniseries by Carly Phillips is named for the island SECRET FANTASY.
Juliette Stanton was branded Chicago's Run-Away-Bride, an unwilling public figure following the scandal of her aborted wedding. She had trusted Stuart because he was a childhood friend and she thought that she knew him well. A man who intended to use her senator father's connections had previously hurt her. So while their physical relationship was lukewarm at best, Juliette wanted to trust Stuart who had always been a part of her life and felt safe. Then she learned that Stuart didn't want her at all, just her connection to winning her father's soon-to-be-vacant senate seat. Minutes before their wedding ceremony, Juliette walked in on Stewart while he was talking to a reputed mob boss. If he went down, Stuart threatened to take her father down with him. Now she's off to Secret Fantasy for pampering and relaxation.
Reporter Doug Houston is a reporter for the Chicago Tribune. He had been involved with a woman for two years but couldn't commit. He and ex both worked and played together, and he trusted the information his ex provided.

The second installment of Harlequin Temptation's Fantasies, Inc. miniseries takes us to the island of Secret Fantasy...

Juliette Stanton just wants to get away from it all. Tagged Chicago's Runaway Bride by the press for breaking off her wedding to her Senator father's protegee, only Juliette and her former fiancé know the truth. All her life, Juliette had been known as the good girl, just as her twin sister, Gillian, was the wild child. Doing what was expected of her, Juliette became engaged to her childhood friend thinking that years of caring would make a basis for marriage. When her fiancé's business partner was caught laundering mob money, she believed Stuart's denials of involvement. However, when she catches him meeting with a reputed mob leader just minutes before the ceremony, Juliette realizes that she has been living a lie. Now, in a carefully planned escape, she is heading to Secret Fantasy to live out her dream -- to experience the luxury of being catered to and doted upon by a very special man...to forget the hurt of a broken engagement.

Reporter Doug Houston is desperate. Hell hath no fury than a woman scorned and Doug's career is in trouble because of it. His recently ended relationship had involved business and pleasure. His girlfriend had access to information that proved useful to him in the past, but when he broke up with her, she gave him information on Juliette Stanton's fiancé which he inexplicably couldn't confirm once the story ran. Hearing about the aborted wedding makes him think there must be a connection to his story, so now Doug has arranged to be at Secret Fantasy to fulfill the Runaway Bride's dreams while hoping to salvage his own. Will they get both their fantasies fulfilled?
