Terrific! Hot, hot, hot!
on 23 January 2016
This was a terrific novel. I loved the build-up to love between two well-matched adversaries. She’s a titled aristocrat; he’s the schoolmaster/manager of an orphanage. Their paths should not have crossed, let alone blended.
I loved everything about the confident heroine, Isabel. The hero, Winter Makepeace, initially a stern, religious character, relaxed as his acquaintance with Isabel progressed. As a result, he became more likeable.
This story also contains murder, mystery, intrigue and suspense. The pace of the romance was well done and it kept its thrilling momentum throughout.
I loved the disparity between the couple’s sexual experiences and how the least experienced one made no apology for the lack.
Elizabeth Hoyt is rarely matched in her ability to write a compelling, emotional sex-scene. Wow, the chemistry, verbal seduction, sexual tension build-up and finally, the very hot sex scenes, had me totally heating up!
In the end, it’s all about the love story, and I really enjoyed that. I found it flawless. It’s the second time I read this book and felt it was as good as I remembered. I’m so glad about that. Winter and Isabel are the perfect couple for the work they are now embarking upon together. They have each other, and I’m confident their love will last. I am left feeling completely satisfied with this romance.
Thank-you Elizabeth Hoyt!
