Light-hearted fun with an endearing cast and a fun hero and heroine.
The good: I really liked Coop and Dani. They're both realistic but optimistic people who do the best they can with that they have. Despite the rather grim matter of blackmail, the author manages to keep everything a fairly light romp. It's fun to see Dani and Coop play off each other and all of the supporting characters are riots in their own right.
The not so great: there's nothing wrong with this story, but it's also not supremely unforgettable. Dani and Coop are entertaining and the story is good for a laugh or two, but it's not one that followed me around and haunted me. I think, for one thing, it's because the story feels rather shallow. There's all of these people doing all of these things, but I never really get the chance to really dive into their emotions and get a glimpse at the darkest corners of them. Or I see the darkest corners and it's all rather really superficial, more plot devices than actual cracks in souls.
That said, I love me some fun and games and a cheerful read for a dreary afternoon and this is perfect for it.
The drama of London's Little Season continues in this vibrant new series by USA TODAY bestselling author Kasey Michaels featuring three courageous war heroes surrendering at last to love…
Who would have thought a man could tire of being fawned over and flirted with? Ever since Cooper Townsend returned from France as a hero with a new title, he has been relentlessly pursued by every marriageable miss in London. Perhaps that's why the unconventional Miss Daniella Foster is so appealing. She doesn't simper or flatter. She only wants him to help unmask her sister's blackmailer, and Coop has never been so intrigued…
Let every other woman in London fight over His Lordship's romantic attentions. Marriage is the last thing on Dany's mind…at least until she samples his illicit kisses. Now, as a mutual enemy races to ruin Coop's reputation and Dany's family name, an engagement of convenience will spark an unlikely passion that might save them both.
