From handsome hostage . . .
When Eva de Courtney kidnaps Godric Fleming, her only plan is to stop the irritating earl from persecuting her beloved brother. But once she has the intriguing rogue in the confines of her carriage, she longs to taste the passion she senses simmering beneath his rugged exterior. Her forbidden plan is foiled, however, when Godric turns the tables, taking her hostage instead—and demanding they marry at once . . .
To unexpected suitor . . .
The last thing Godric wants to do is make the fiery, impulsive Eva his wife, despite her delectable mouth and alluring innocence. He knows from experience that nothing is forever, not even love. But honor demands he do right by the lady, no matter how stubbornly Eva tries to hold on to her independence. And while the road to the Scottish border is beset with danger, Godric’s greatest challenge is to keep his hands—and his heart—from his captivating bride-to-be . . .
I didnt read the first in this series but while there is a strong connection between the two stories I wasn’t lost. The focus is on a new couple.
Eva is headstrong and naive which leads her into disastrous situations. She didn’t fully think through her plan when she kidnapped Godric and now she must suffer the consequences.
Godric has alot of emotional baggage. He lost all of his family in a very short space of time and he blames himself. Losing his parents and siblings was hard enough but the loss of his wife and son has made him afraid to ever risk his heart again.
I loved the chemistry between Eva and Godric, it was explosive. I didn’t like the estrangement when Eva’s father came for her. I feel like Godric should have fought for her.
I have fallen in love with this series and look forward to reading more by this author
