"A Perfect Gentleman," is an outstanding work of romantic fiction and I was blown away by the Disney-like magic that this novel possessed. This book was my very first introduction to author's Candance Camp's writing and I have a tough time with the bold fact that I had not even heard of the author prior to this story. Wow, I am so relieved to have found such an amazing author who truly knows where the heart of a historical fiction novel lies, within the romance.
This story contains so much romance that I was almost bursting with happiness. Finally, I was able to have the romance in a historical fiction that I have been waiting for all year along. The attraction between Abigail and Graeme was spicy, to say the least with the amount of history the duo shared together.
Both of the characters I really enjoyed. Abigail for her wits and equally as for her fierce independence. I liked how well Abby was willing to stand up against Graeme in the story as she was not so easily defeated within the arrangement of their marriage. As for Graeme, I'm not so sure he was a perfect gentleman as the title allows us to believe, but I still liked his character. He was wildly handsome, unable to be intimated even by the beautiful Abigail and a man that was torn between duty and love. Together, the twosome made for an exceptional romance.
I did fall in love with both the story as well as the characters within this book, but I still felt like there parts within the plot that were missing as some scenes were not as a strong as others. Regardless, I still would recommend this book and I am looking forward to reading more from the author in the near future.
From New York Times bestselling author Candace Camp comes a delicious and steamy marriage-of-convenience historical romance in A Perfect Gentleman.
Forced to marry an American heiress to save his family, Graeme Parr, Earl of Montclair, vowed their marriage would be in name only. Abigail Price thought handsome, aristocratic Graeme was her knight in shining armor, rescuing her from her overbearing father. But when she was spurned by her husband on their wedding night, Abigail fled home to New York.
Now, years later, Abigail has returned. But this sophisticated, alluring woman is not the drab girl Graeme remembers. Appalled by her bold American ways but drawn to her beauty, Graeme follows her on a merry chase through London’s elegant ballrooms to its dockside taverns—why is his wife back? What could she want of him now?
Torn between desire and suspicion, Graeme fears that Abby, like her unprincipled father, has a devious plan to ruin him. But is Abigail’s true desire Graeme’s destruction...or winning his love at last?
