Characters that will touch your heart and a romance that will leave you breathless. The few books that I have read by Anna Bradley have never disappointed and this one definitely didn’t disappoint either.
Enthralled from the first page “More or Less A Temptress” sucked me in with a story that crackles with sensual energy, characters that are scarred, sexy and wonderfully compelling. A true masterpiece, that was thrilling, and writing so truly beautiful that it stays with you long after you put this book down.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Regency London at it's best engages our senses with this delightful story full of romance and humor as a young debutante makes her debut. Hyacinth, the youngest of the Sommerset sisters, engages in her first dance with Lachlan, newly from Scotland. He has come to claim his rightful place in society but receives a startling accusation from the young miss! To say their first meeting started with a bang is telling it mildly! This pair, although seemed to be so different, were really meant for each other in the end. He helps Hyacinth gain her confidence, after being in the background of her older sisters.
Following her as she slowly came out of her shell and seeing her and Lachlan together was a true delight. The characters came to life and brought a smile to my heart. Do not miss this third installment of the Somerset Sisters series. You will be glad you did. I read this through NetGallery
