Book Description

Having a passionate affair on a desert island was not something Millie Lang ever thought she’d do…

Since tragedy struck her life, Millie has cocooned herself in her work, leaving no time to think or feel. Chase Bryant has his own reasons for escaping it all. As long as they both know this paradise is just for one week with no messy emotions all should be fine.

But neither of these two damaged souls is ready for the Pandora’s Box of emotions that their intense passion unleashes…

‘Wow! Kate Hewitt writes heroes worth reading about. Love it.’ – Catherine, Teacher, South Wales

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a traditional Mills and Boon 30 Mar. 2013
By fiona43
Format:Kindle Edition
I would actually give this book 31/2 stars if I could. It was a good story, not dramatic or too angst filled, but both the characters made a journey together which, of course, ended happily. A pleasant read, with courageous characters.

A pretty weak book over all. Was not engaged by either the characters, relationships or the plot.
Don't waste your time or money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Emotional ride 4 Jan. 2013
By Lily - Lily Pond Reads Blog - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Courtesy of Harlequin through Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

Ah I love finding books that I just soak right in within a day that leave me loving them and satisfied. Beneath the Veil of Paradise just happens to be one of those reads. When Tragedy struck her life, the only way Millie knew how to cope with it is to immerse herself in a lot of work. When she is forced to take a vacation to the beautiful islands of the Caribbean, she runs into Chase Bryant a handsome playboy whose family happens to own the resort. Chase Bryant is there with his own reasons to escape.

Gosh this story was so precious, and it was filled with emotion. What happened to Millie was heartbreaking, but her run in with Chase was not only heartwarming, but it had me giggling. Their conversations were easy and a held a really nice flow to the book, as they were light and filled with some humor.

My favorite part of the book happened to be at the beginning when Chase noticed her hair and wasn't a bit shy expressing his feelings about it.

'It's scary. Like, Morticia Addams scary.'

I couldn't stop laughing, not to mention that he stuck her with the nickname Scary through the book! It was kind of endearing.

So when Chase looks for a bit of excitement on his boring vacation, he doesn't expect Millie to comply. It was fun to tease her when she pushed back against his taunting, but he wasn't expecting the woman to come looking for him with a deal of her own. No strings attached for the rest of the weekend, as long as they both give into their desires. Wanting to forget, wanting to move on, Millie makes a bargain with her heart and feelings that are bound to unravel in Chase's arms.

Behind that smile, Chase holds a secret of his own. One that he has a hard time expressing once Millie breaks down her own walls and exposes herself completely at the most vulnerable time, it was completely sad. I couldn't prevent my bottom lip from quivering, hurting for the both of them. But the romance was sweet, even though the storyline had its heart melting moments, it was those bits that made the book well rounded and worth the read.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 stars for an angsty emotional read 28 Dec. 2012
By Fiona - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
4 1/2 stars. This is a full on emotional story. Millie is two years on from a tragedy that left her numb and frozen inside. Chase has his own secret, about the worst possible one considering her history. They meet, both reluctant holiday makers in paradise, a resort in the Caribbean. The attraction is at first unwelcome but with a week before returning to the real world they agree to a no holds barred affair.

Be careful what you wish for. Both of them find the intimacy brings out emotions and memories they can't or don't want to handle. The results are full on and life altering.

This is one of the angsty reads Kate Hewitt specialises in. Both Millie and Chase are strong people dealing with a very bad hand in life. What they struggle against is the truth that together they are better and stronger. The relationship and conflict worked well and the ending was very satisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Written Sad Story with HEA 19 Oct. 2013
By Ruby Reads - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read this story sometime back and I liked it. Both characters are suffering-h with a personal loss and H with loss of health.
They meet on a resort Island and fall in love. This is a story with more depth than the average romance and the compelling characters just sort of stick with you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A compelling story. 5 Jan. 2013
By Harlequin Junkie Blog - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Kate Hewitt's Beneath the Veil of Paradise offers readers a compelling story in which hedge-fund manager Millie Lang and successful, self-made architect Chase Bryant meet and strike a sexy vacation bargain in tropical surroundings meant to last for a brief time only:

"'You give me one week" ... He leaned forward, the urgency and excitement he field coming out on his voice, his body. He felt it thrum between them with the pulse of an electric current. 'One week. Seven days. But you give me everything, Millie. You give me all of yourself, no holding back, no hiding, All in. And in return I give you mind-blowing.'"

But Millie battles a painful past and Chase struggles with fears of the future. What begins as a no-strings sexual affair quickly morphs into something deeper -- and more challenging -- for them both. If you enjoy passionate stories in which hero and heroine must both confront very real demons in order to move forward, then this story is for you.

I like the way in which Hewitt is able to convey the strengths and vulnerabilities of both characters, while still remaining true to the Presents traditions of a strong, though vulnerable, heroine and an alpha male hero who still possesses a sensitive side. She also provides Millie and Chase with convincing back stories for the obstacles they must seek to overcome; they're not the usual clichés of a lot of romances. Millie's and Chase's histories are revealed gradually to the reader in much the same way that they reveal themselves gradually to one another -- all while the (hot) sexual energy and emotional connection between them grow. Kind of makes you want to book a flight ASAP to a tropical locale in search of what Millie and Chase find!

I note that in addition to the two protagonists, there are enough siblings waiting in the wings to generate their own Presents stories. If Beneath the Veil of Paradise is part of a Hewitt series, I'll definitely read the others!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intense 8 Dec. 2012
By Jen - Reviewer at WebbWeaver - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This was indeed one emotionally intense read! It deals with some very serious issues and I cried more than once.
This story progressed to a place I really wasn't expecting. Chase, the hero, really turns the tables big time on Millie,the heroine. In the meantime he doesn't actually realise that he's turning them on himself as well ! It's a bit complicated but well worth the read. I read it in one sitting. Couldn't put it down.
Be prepared though, it's quite full-on emotionally.
