Juliana is on the run from her father. He's a bully and she's always been afraid of him. Because she's old enough to get a small inheritance she risks going to London on her own. The only problem is that she needs to see a lawyer to have any funds, right now she doesn't have any money and needs to get there for free. When she asks Michael for a ride in his carriage he agrees. Juliana doesn't have much, but she knows a duchess in London who can help her. Her life will truly start if she manages to reach the big city, will she be able to stay out of her father's evil clutches?
Michael is the bastard son of an earl. His father sent him to the countryside to manage an estate, as far away from society as possible, but now he needs something from him and Michael has been summoned to come to London. Taking Juliana with him isn't without danger and the journey won't be as uneventful as he thought it would be. Will they arrive safely? Can Michael forget about Juliana once he's in London and what happens when they go their separate ways, will they ever see each other again?
The Chase is a wonderful captivating story. I was immediately intrigued by Juliana's background. She doesn't have suitable clothes for the journey and her possessions are meagre, but she's smart and resilient, which makes it possible for her to get whatever she wants. Finding out if she could stay out of the hands of her father kept me on the edge of my seat. I loved the combination of a thrilling ride with sparkling romance, it works really well. She and Michael have a dazzling connection that melted my heart and I enjoyed their dynamic sweet story from beginning to end.
Sara Portman knows how to write about true love. I really like how she makes emotions come to life. For me all of her stories are true gems. The Chase put a big smile on my face, it's beautiful romance filled with adventure, which is exactly what I like. I was fascinated by the main characters and couldn't wait to find out their secrets. I liked their interaction and was curious to see what would happen when their journey would come to an end. The Chase has many surprising twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end. I really loved this amazing heartwarming book.
