Kate Harper is by far one of my favorite historical romance writers. It is because of her that I started reading historical romance and I have been hooked ever since! Her writing style is smooth and her characters and their world comes alive easily in your mind so that you can live every moment in the book. Our main character is Lord Marcus who is just come home from the war a wounded veteran, and back to a world that is vastly different than the one that he left behind. His family’s situation has been drastically altered and now he must find a new place in an ever changing world. When Marcus seeks a change from his current situation he sets out on a riding adventure at the urging of his mother. He hopes that his time on his own will help clear his mind and help him be back in time for the London season so that he can begin starting his life again. What he wasn’t expecting to do on his journey is come to the rescue of the very beautiful and very outspoken, Miss Claybourn. When he comes to his aid, he hopes for a quick escape from Cloverton Hall but he finds the pull and schemes of Miss Claybourn and her grandmother too much to resist and extends his visit for a few days. Miss Claybourn is determined to make his stay much longer and isn’t afraid to admit it, but she will find her schemes and games must be let go if she has any hope of catching more than his eye. Together they will have to overcome their own issues and history if they have any hope of seeing each other again. Wow, I devoured this book! I couldn’t wait to read it and once I started it…I couldn’t put it down. I adore these characters, Miss Claybourn has just the type of attitude I imagine myself having and Marcus is just the type of man you can see yourself jesting with the rest of your life. Kate Harper has done it again and I cannot wait to read her next book!
I really enjoyed this book. So far, my favorite by this author. The story is light on content but the characters are engaging and it is a quick, entertaining tale. I highly recommend it.
I'm looking forward to reading more from this author!
