4.5 STARS - STRONG CHARACTER'S
Reviewed in the United States on June 22, 2021
Great author and I can't wait to read the rest of the series when released.
My only complaint is their strong wills lasted too long - some of it became repetitive. The H was a powerful Duke who helped the poor. He didn't want credit for it, but knowing he made a difference was enough. But, being a powerful Duke, he was use to getting his own way. So he obviously clashed with the h.
The h also was a champion of the poor but because she was a women, she had to at times put herself in danger. She was secretly helping the H get votes for social causes. She knew who he was, but he didn't know about her, because she sent him letter's as coming from a man.
The h wanted to marry a man who had no interest in her as a wife so she could continue her causes secretly. Of course the Duke, didn't fit her requirements of a husband. So to say sparks ignited whenever they discussed anything is an understatement.
The banter between the H/h kept the story from being a cookie cutter. At times, I laughed out loud.
There is lovemaking, outside of marriage, heat level 2.5 out of 5. I felt a connection to this couple, so it was filled with passion.
Romance builds slowly, no cheating, no cliffhanger, interesting and strong secondary character's that I hope will get their own stories, HEA and a tad of spice. (ljb)
