Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Hunter’s second Bridal Pleasures historical romance (after A Duke’s Temptation) springs from an innocent childhood friendship in the 19th-century English countryside. Miss Violet Knowlton is the naïve ward of her aunt and uncle; Kit is a workhouse boy who escapes “the palace” on occasion to explore the churchyard graves. Too soon, the two must abandon child’s play for the adult world. When they chance to meet again during an impressive performance of Kit’s swordsmanship, he is surprised to find Violet a gentlewoman, rising in society and betrothed to boorish Sir Godfrey. As they dance together for the first time, memories of their friendship add “a secret intimacy, a whisper of spice to their reunion.” With so much against them, however, can their renewed affair stand a chance? Hunter draws the reader in with a compelling plot and engaging characters in this smoothly written tale of love lost and found. (Oct.)

    Loved this Book!!! It's a must read

    This was a wonderful book from start to finish. Loved the relationship between the hero and heroine, there was none of the requisite "does he love me?" question in the book. He was in love with her since childhood and he was her Knight.

    Very fast moving, witty and inteligent prose. Great ending!!

    Cover/title: Beautiful and caught my attention right away.

    Review: I haven’t read the other book in this series but I will now. I loved this book. It was great the way the characters interacted with each other! I was pulled in right away knowing that they were childhood friends and could just feel the tension build... 

    When they were younger, Violet watched him from a distance as he fought imaginary foes in a graveyard. Then, they became friends and frolicked and played before real life took him away from her. Now, she’s engaged and he’s back in the picture...what’s a girl to do? He takes her breath away and she knows that she’s been groomed her entire life to do what is right and proper but he’s just so tempting! Kit can’t believe his good fortune, it’s her, the one he always wanted to impress and protect but what’s he supposed to do – challenge her fiancée to a duel and kill him?

    How these two danced around each other and society’s expectations was a joy to read. Violet’s Aunt, who raised her, surprises Violet by revealing more about her past than she had ever been told but she wasn’t the only surprise in this story. An old friend has sinister plans for the two lovebirds as well as an unknown enemy lurking in the shadows. The perfect blend of suspense, romance, and mystery! 

    Advice: Perfect reading for a long winter’s night!

    Endearing

    The backstory of them as children was so endearing. Usually, I like the love/hate lots of sexual tension romances but this one was different. The Hero and Heroine had a strong history together and didn't play games or try to hide their feelings. It was so wonderful how excited the Hero was to be reunited with her after all that time! They were both sweet people you were happy to see found one another again. Great read.

    A Great Book

    This is one of my absolute favorite books by Jillian Hunter (possibly my favorite). It was so well put together and interesting throughout the entire book that it was hard to put down. I think I put it down for maybe 2 minutes at a time at the most, and I read it in 3-4 hours. I definitely recommend this book!
