This book was an okay read. Maybe it's the feminist in me but I had a hard time with a lot in this book. I hate when men demean women, mistrust them and what not over stupid stuff. It just feels like the author is trying to create conflict. I have found that a lot of new romance writers nowadays try to put in a more modern view in their historical romance books. This book is more on the older side. Which I do believe many would like.

The imagery was amazing.
Blair was a bad butt b****. I loved her so much. She wasn’t willing to give up hope on the relationship with her husband despite the slightly unconventional start to the relationship. She was not willing to just be a “normal” (note the quotation marks) bride. She was going to get involved. It’s really interesting how she was fighting more for the freedom to do things than freedom from her family.
Finlay, on the other hand, was just slightly more t ...more

I was recently introduced to Lori via BookBub. She is now a favorite author of mine. Her stories cover my favorite genre and they are full of intrigue, passion, hero’s and heroines. As soon as I finished book 3, I was impatient while waiting on this story as I knew it would be good and she didn’t let me down. Thanks Lori for a great story. I would love to see this group carry on for a few more books.
