received for an honest review
Three stars (I liked it)
Lady Serena is the center of admiration when her aunt takes her under her wing. Lord Robert Beaumont a confirmed bachelor tries to avoid his attraction towards her but can’t. I wish that Lady Serena did more than just blush. I really love witty heroines. I found that Ella Quinn’s style continued from her previous two novels. Although I think she is very talented there is always a sluggish feel to her story lines…
I do love how she describes scenes. She literately paints them before my eyes. I just always feel that there is no chemistry between the heroine and hero. I was also a little disappointed with Phoebe. In her story she was so independent and refused to do what the norm required, yet she tells Lady Serena to focus on getting herself a husband…
I also found it amusing that although Lord Beumont is a very accomplished lady’s man he has no idea how to speak with Serena. I liked that the author took her time in letting them get to know each other. For much of the book Robert tries to woo her through different outings and activities.
I liked but did not love this book. I think it would make an enjoyable read and is worth picking up.
