Lisa Madison wants a husband, and she has just the candidate in mind: Robert Langley. Trouble is, the infuriating man insists on seeing her as the impish girl she once was—even as every other gentleman in London has taken notice of her womanly…charms. When her beauty lands her in danger, it’s Robert who comes to the rescue…only to announce his affections are not of the romantic variety!
Robert saw enough sorrow in his parents’ union to know he wants nothing to do with marriage, which is exactly what he’ll be trapped into if he acts on his desire for the irksome siren. And then Lisa does what Robert least expects: gives up on him! As feigned indifference gives way, blistering passion burns at last. But just before the pair can give in to hard-won bliss, an enemy with unfinished business lurks threatening to destroy them both.
REVIEW: The only reason for me to read this book was the obvious one: I needed to know what happens at the end of this series. Now, having read the other two books (‘The Countess’ and ‘The Heiress’ and reviewed them here and here), I knew what to expect and surprisingly enough, that didn’t bother me much. I was ready for this one and I was thrilled that it took place two years after the other two books. Our heroine thinks herself not just older but wiser, and decides that waiting for the affections of our hero just might be in vain, so she sets out to choose a husband for herself.
And off we go on an adventure , or misadventure, with Lisa and Robert.
Reading this book was like watching a train wreck. I just couldn’t avert my eyes and avoid the obvious from the plot and the identity of the villan to the stupidity of the heroine. Seriously, this chick needed for someone to knock some sence into her! Yet I kept reading it!
This is not my first time reading Lynsay Sands and even though I never read any of her Vampire books, I thought the ones I read (‘The Switch’ and ‘Love is Blind’) were very good, interesting and quite entertaining. I’ve ‘The Deed’ still on my TBR and one of these days will get to it.
If you’re in a mood for some silliness and need a lighthearted read, this will fit the bill. It will make you laugh but the story in itself will have you cringe at times.
In the end, I recommend it only to those that have read the other two books, and if you haven’t yet had a chance to read the other two, don’t start with this one. You’re better off getting the two that I recommended, ‘The Switch’ and ‘Love is Blind’. They were short, well written with sweet romance and witty dialogue, and really fun to read.
