My Rating: 2.5 stars
In an act of revenge, Lord Rayne kissed Lady Julia and was sent packing to America. But now he’s back to settle his affairs and give away his sister in marriage until he meets up with the alluring yet innocent Lady Julia again. He doesn’t regret their first kiss, but he was never good enough for her.
Lady Julia had two years to forget the moody and mercurial Earl of Rayne. But one look, and she knows they’re meant to be together. Be damned with his and her brother’s objections, she’ll just jump on the back of Rayne’s departing carriage and compromise them both thoroughly.
Only, Julia never expected her forbidding Lord to be so good at resisting temptation…
I have read the previous in the series, but each one can be read as a standalone. It is time I abandon this series. Once again, the characters are unlikeable and bear the traits of twenty-first-century characters thrown into a historical setting.
I have tried to find something that would be complimentary about this book, but with such unlikeable main characters, the entire book was tainted for me. There are far better historical romances out there. I suggest finding one of them.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
