A Woman Entangled

Blackshear Family, #3

"A Woman Entangled" is a delightful read, historical romance lovers will enjoy. Kate and Nick are compelling characters, who are strong - minded opposites who surprisingly become lovers. Kate is a remarkably complex character, and her growth from a young lady to a woman is gradual and rewarding. Nick is an unusual hero for a Regency romance, being a barrister and not a titled gentleman, and I found this to be a creative change to a theme well used. Overall, Cecilia Grant has written a compelling romance with great characters, and steamy love scenes fans of the Blackshear family, and new readers alike will value.

Book Blurb for A Woman Entangled

An ambitious beauty seeking a spot among the elite is thwarted by a most disruptive gentleman in Cecilia Grant’s witty, elegant, and exquisitely sensual novel.

Kate Westbrook has dreams far bigger than romance. Love won’t get her into London’s most consequential parties, nor prevent her sisters from being snubbed and looked down upon—all because their besotted father unadvisedly married an actress. But a noble husband for Kate would deliver a future most suited to the granddaughter of an earl. Armed with ingenuity, breathtaking beauty, and the help of an idle aunt with connections, Kate is poised to make her dreams come true. Unfortunately, a familiar face—albeit a maddeningly handsome one—appears bent on upsetting her scheme.

Implored by Kate’s worried father to fend off the rogues eager to exploit his daughter’s charms, Nick Blackshear has set aside the torch he’s carried for Kate in order to do right by his friend. Anyway, she made quite clear that his feelings were not returned—though policing her won’t abate Nick’s desire. Reckless passion leads to love’s awakening, but time is running out. Kate must see for herself that the charms of high society are nothing compared to the infinite sweet pleasures demanded by the heart.
