STORY: Can two star-crossed lovers come together―until death do they part?
Viscount Hart Highgate has decided to put his rakish ways behind him and finally get married. He may adore a good brandy or a high-speed carriage race, but he takes his duties as heir to the earldom seriously. Now all he has to do is find the right kind of woman to be his bride―ideally, one who’s also well-connected and well-funded. . .
Meg Timmons has loved Hart, the brother of her best friend, ever since she was an awkward, blushing schoolgirl. If only she had a large dowry―or anything to her name at all. Instead, she’s from a family that’s been locked in a bitter feud with Hart’s for years. And now she’s approaching her third London season, Meg’s chances with him are slim to none. Unless a surprise encounter on a deep, dark night could be enough to spark a rebellious romance. . .for all time?
REVIEW: This is book eight in Playful Brides series, but the author does a very good job in writing it so it can definitely be read as a stand-alone.
Out of all eight books, which I’ve read and liked a lot, this one is my least favorite. I just could not for the life of me see what the heroine saw in the hero. Their romance left me cold. I just didn’t feel the chemistry at all.
I’ve read this author before and I like her writing voice. She writes fun and engaging stories with witty dialogue and good plots, yet this one just fell flat for me.
If you’re a fan of this author, you’ll want to read it but if you’ve never read her before, this is the story you should check out, ‘A Secret Proposal’ by Valerie Bowman.
