Christy Carlyle delivered such a fun, romantic novel that I could not help except to fall in love with this story as well as the characters.
I was first introduced to the author earlier this year and I do not mind declaring that I have been hooked on her novels ever since. There is something extra special about a Carlyle novel that I just cannot find in any other writer and that something is the romance itself. I know that when I select a novel from the author I am going to get a breathtaking, steamy romance and as a reader that is what I want the most from historical-romance.
Getting to the highlights of the story I adored the attraction between both Sebastian and Kitty. The duo tried their darndest not to fall in love with one another, but Sebastian I think proved to be too irresistible. I really enjoyed Sebastian as the hero. He was bold, handsome and a little spiteful in nature. As for Kitty she had a spark about her. She was the ideal match for Sebastian and because of these two individuals the romance just brightened with each page that I turned.
I think what I loved the most outside of the romance is the writing itself. This story had a wonderful and charming vibe that was full of humor and love. I honestly could not ask for a better story than what I have discovered in this book it's certainly going to please romance readers without a doubt.
If it is not already obvious I highly recommend this novel. The characters, the romance and the author will all leave you more than satisfied.
Becoming engaged? Simple. Resisting temptation? Impossible.
Sebastian Fennick, the newest Duke of Wrexford, prefers the straightforwardness of mathematics to romantic nonsense. When he meets Lady Katherine Adderly at the first ball of the season, he finds her as alluring as she is disagreeable. His title may now require him to marry, but Sebastian can’t think of anyone less fit to be his wife, even if he can’t get her out of his mind.
After five seasons of snubbing suitors and making small talk, Lady Kitty has seen all the ton has to offer…and she’s not impressed. But when Kitty’s overbearing father demands she must marry before her beloved younger sister can, she proposes a plan to the handsome duke. Kitty’s schemes always seem to backfire, but she knows this one can’t go wrong. After all, she’s not the least bit tempted by Sebastian, is she?
