STORY: Lilah Appleton’s prospects are looking dim. With one last chance to find a titled husband before she’s forced to wed her wretched cousin, she must make this Season count. Plain, forgettable Lilah must become the Season’s Original. Desperate, she seeks help from the devilishly charming, untitled, and thoroughly unsuitable Jack Marlowe. All she must do now is resist the tempting rogue…
Bastard son and self-made man, Jack Marlowe loathes the aristocracy. When he meets Lilah, he expects her to be like all the other greedy husband-hunters. But she’s far more dangerous. Her alluring smiles and sharp tongue intrigue him. Before he knows it, he agrees to help her find a husband, revealing tricks to ensnare any man. The only problem is, his plan works too well—on him.
When Lilah becomes the belle of the ball, Jack realizes he may lose her forever—unless he can take a chance on love and claim his debutante…
REVIEW: This is Vivienne Lorret’s first book in the Season’s Originals and it was one of those stories that moved at a nice pace and in which the couple was likable and interesting. I thought the plot was plausible and it moved the story forward and it had me vested in their story.
Let me address this “historical inaccuracy” that everyone is talking about at the end of the story. I honestly didn’t even notice it as I was reading the story, and even when it was brought to my attention, I didn’t care because in the end, this is a fiction. I’m willing to suspend my imagination and allow that discrepancy. As long as I cared for these two, everything else is okay with me.
I’m looking forward to the second book and recommend this one highly.
