"Pleasingly subversive."--New York Times Book Review

One of Library Journal's Best Romances of 2023!
A BookList Editor's Pick of 2023!

A forbidden love between a Mexican heiress and a shrewd British politician makes for a tantalizing Victorian season.

 
Ana María Luna Valdés has strived to be the perfect daughter, the perfect niece, and the perfect representative of the powerful Luna family. So when Ana María is secretly sent to London with her sisters to seek refuge from the French occupation of Mexico, she experiences her first taste of freedom far from the judgmental eyes of her domineering father. If only she could ignore the piercing looks she receives across ballroom floors from the austere Mr. Fox.
 
Gideon Fox elevated himself from the London gutters by chasing his burning desire for more: more opportunities, more choices. For everyone. Now, as a member of Parliament, Gideon is on the cusp of securing the votes he needs to put forth a measure to abolish the Atlantic slave trade once and for all—a cause that is close to his heart as the grandson of a formerly enslaved woman. The charmingly vexing Ana María is a distraction he must ignore.
 
But when Ana María finds herself in the crosshairs of a nefarious nobleman with his own political agenda, Gideon knows he must offer his hand as protection . . . but will this Mexican heiress win his heart as well?

Lively historical fiction

Four and a Half Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭒
Ana María and the Fox by Liana De la Rosa is the first book in the author's brand new series, The Luna Sisters, based on the sisters of the powerful Luna family of Mexico during the French occupation of Mexico.

Story Recap:
Ana María Luna Valdés has tried to be the dutiful daughter to her parents as they are all part of the very powerful Luna familia in Mexico. After the French occupation of Mexico, her parents shipped Ana and her sisters to London to stay safe and Ana found some independence from her overbearing father.

Gideon Fox is a self-made man, he brought himself up from the gutters of London and has made a comfortable life for himself, and is now a member of Parliament. He is working on a bill that will abolish the Atlantic slave trade once and for all, and as the grandson of an enslaved woman, this is a cause that is very dear to his heart.

My Thoughts:
I loved this multicultural historical fiction story. This is a slow-burn romance with terrific characters and a lovely setting. I also like to learn new things when I read, especially when I read historical fiction, and I knew nothing about the history of Mexico, especially during the French occupation. Ana and her sisters had to leave Mexico during this occupation because of their family's relationship with the Mexican government.

I love a fake marriage trope and a slow-burn romance and this book has both and both are done very well. Ana Marie, the oldest sister, is a bit reserved, and as she is already promised to marry a man her family chose for her, she’s not interested in love. And Gideon is too focused on his goals to make time for a flirtation, so both characters are reluctant to do anything about their feelings for each other. And I loved watching them fall for each other even though they didn’t want to.

My favorite part of this book is about the sisters and their relationships. Especially how their relationships strengthen over time. I love books about sisters and this book is a great example of sisters who support and love each other. I’ll be first in line to read the stories of Ana’s sisters and can’t wait for them to come out.

Recommendation:
I highly recommend Ana Marie and the Fox to anyone who enjoys historical romance. I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
