I should start out by saying that I won this book through goodreads.

Is it a romance novel...



Is it original

Is it entertaining




It isn't your typical romance novel where there are a ton of steamy sex scenes. In fact the books has quite a bit of good story line to it. You see Will is a spy slash playboy who has been assigned to keep Lucinda safe since there is an assassin out to kill her. She is a highly sought after woman and has no shortage of admirers. Her friend has been setting her up with "dates" in hopes that Lucinda will settle down and marry, which she has no intention of doing. So Will takes this opportunity to court her as a way to be close to her and keep her safe. Now I should also mention that Will was abused as a child and therefor has hardened his heart to the world and doesn't believe in love. So you have two main characters that are skeptical on the concept of love and marriage.. hmm I wonder how this ends.

My favorite part of the book is him adjusting to her world. He may be a Duke but he doesn't attend the fancy dinners or balls and he certainly isn't one to court a lady. So it was fun watching him struggle though being polite and acting proper at the dinner parties and gatherings. It is also interesting to see him begin to soften his heart and have feelings for Lucinda.


Favorite quote...
"Of course I want to bed her. A man would have to be dead and buried not to. No, I want to talk to her. I like talking to her. Dammit, the bedding part is natural. Wanting to spend time with her outside the bedchamber is not." - Will

Lauren I love your Darren Criss "Oh Yeah!" gif! That is one of my most favorite Glee songs and performances! That song started playing in my head the minute i saw that gif. The 101 Dalmatians gif is pretty cute too.


Kyra FYI: Please consider those of us still on older computers & browers. all these gifs froze my broweser and I had to reopen it.
