In many ways this is a charmingly romantic novel that is utterly one of the best love stories that I have had the pleasure of reading this year.
Whenever I am to think about which romance writers are perhaps the best within the industry McQuiston always enters my mind. I have been thoroughly hooked on the author's many books since she first made her debut and it seems as if simply cannot get enough of her romantic writings. This book was yet another classical romance that I overly enjoyed and was completely not what I was expecting in all of the best possible ways.
The plot of this book is not shy of its attractive nature. It is certainly endearing with everything I love including attraction, a cottage and an equally seductive hero that is capable of sweeping the heroine off her feet. This book did not lack chemistry at all between both Thomas and Lucy and I was very pleased by this fact.
Moving forward to discuss the chemistry further I liked how both Thomas and Lucy's purposeful attraction was almost playful-like. I liked how determined Thomas was to win Lucy's heart. This kind of spark is exactly what I want to see in any romance novel and McQuiston nailed it.
As for the romance it was bound to be sexy since the chemistry was and it certainly delivered. This is more along the lines of a sweeter romance is how I would best describe it. There was quite a bit of heat between the duo and yet I felt like Thomas's heart truly belonged to Lucy and even though she wasn't willing to first admit it to herself Lucy's heart was Thomas's as well.
I would immensely recommend this book. It's a true romantic story that will leave you far more than satisfied.
In New York Times bestselling author Jennifer McQuiston's enticing new Seduction Diaries entry, a mysterious journal may provide a potential spinster with instruction—or lead her to her heart's desire
Free-spirited Lucy Westmore isn't yet a spinster, although she fully intends to be. Fortunately, an eccentric aunt has left her both a diary detailing the secrets to spinsterhood and a cottage in Cornwall. Unfortunately, an insufferable marquess is angling for her prize! Turning Lord Thomas Branston down flat should be easy. So why does this man who won't take no for an answer make Lucy's body and soul sigh yes?
Thomas knows the real value of Heathmore Cottage, and he has no intention of letting some silly Society miss get her hands on it. He'll simply have to charm Lucy into selling. But the clever young woman he encounters, first in London, then en route to Cornwall, stands stubbornly on her own two (quite lovely) feet. And now, Thomas can think only of sweeping her off them.
