Product Description

Review

Winner of the Festival of Romance Best Romantic Read Award 2011. --Festival of Romance

..Some combinations are irresistible - and I don't mean Honor and Martyn! A book written by Sue Moorcroft and published by Choc Lit has got to be brilliant, but this time they both had a mountain to climb. I was fresh home from surgery and unwilling to stay in bed and recuperate, but Love and Freedom was the next on my reading pile. Despite being in quite a bit of pain I made myself as comfortable as possible and read it over the next couple of days. It was brilliant. I loved Honor - doing her best to live up to her name, to do her best by everyone AND sort out her own life. And those visions of Martyn out running did me no harm at all... --The Bookbag

I've read all of Sue Moorcroft's novels and enjoyed each one. But Love and Freedom has to be her best yet. I loved it, from the evocative descriptions of Brighton, to the colourful characters and humour. And what a hero, certainly one to set readers' hearts beating. Pacy, romantic, with an intriguing American heroine. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
Honor's story in England starts with being rescued by her knight in shining armour - which I absolutely loved! It was so unusual that it hooked me in. Honor is suffering from jet lag and falls asleep in the sun - so although Martyn rescues her, it's all seen from a dream-like perspective.

The bungalow Honor is renting is owned by Martyn's `sister', Clarissa. Through Clarissa and Martyn's interaction we get the picture that Martyn is not doing much with his life.

From the beginning we see the spark between Honor and Martyn sizzle. They are getting to know each other, sharing backgrounds and experiences but before things can get too hot, Martyn finds out that Honor is married. Having been recently tangled up in a love triangle, Martyn backs off and refuses to take notice of his desires (well, he takes note of them but doesn't act on them!).

On their first run together we meet Robina from a distance. Robina owns the local teashop and is infatuated with Martyn to the point where she is stalking him. Things get complicated when Honor gets a job working for her.
Honor takes Robina's son Rufus under her wing, interceding when the local bully is making Rufus' life hard.

Honor comes across as quite a strong character from the beginning - although we may get a different perspective from her relationship with her American husband Stef, I felt she was the strong one who gave stability and responsibility to that relationship. In England, she doesn't get pulled in by a local when she's looking for work, stands up for Rufus and deals with Martyn's drunk agent with strength and dignity. Honor is a very generous and thoughtful character but I did think that sometimes she put everyone's needs before her own.

I'm a big fan of Sue Moorcroft and have read all her books, but this one is my favourite. It's about what happens when feisty but vulnerable American Honor Sontag comes to the UK to sort out her feelings about her marriage and to look for her birth mother.

Arriving in Brighton in the middle of an English summer (the sun is hot enough to burn one minute and hiding behind the biggest, blackest rain clouds the next) Honor doesn't expect or even want to fall in love. But when she meets gorgeous male model Martyn Mayfair, she finds she can't help herself.

Martyn has issues with his family, and he has also made a private promise to himself never to get involved with a married woman. Honor finds herself getting tangled up in the various strands of Martyn's life and sometimes wishing she'd never met him, but not for long!

This story is full of twists and turns and clever plotting. It kept me guessing throughout, wondering if Martyn and Honor would ever find happiness - on page 290 (out of 320) it looks as if everything has gone completely pear-shaped - but it all works out in the end in the most ingenious way.

A gorgeous, intelligent, occasionally difficult but invariably lovable hero made this novel for me, because I fell for Martyn as easily as Honor did.

Format: Paperback
'Love & Freedom' is one of those books which you simply can't put down. You are into the story from page one and from then on, it won't let go of you. I couldn't wait to see what would happen, but at the same time I felt totally bereft once I'd finished because I didn't want to leave these characters. They stay in your mind for days afterwards! The American heroine Honor is refreshing and immensely likeable, the secondary characters well drawn, especially the teenage boy Rufus (whom you just want to hug!). The main attraction (quite literally) however, is the hero Martyn who takes the expression "tall, dark and handsome" to a whole new level and from the moment he walked onto the page, I fell in love. I didn't think any hero could surpass Ratty from 'Starting Over', but now I'm not so sure. Martyn is more than a match for him! This is the perfect summer read - I highly recommend this book and can't wait for the author's next book!

I thoroughly enjoyed this light-hearted and warming read. I loved the way that all the lives of the characters were entwined, and the way the author formed the relationships between all the characters.

The book was well written and very descriptive. I love a book where you can actually picture the characters easily as it helps me form the story better in my mind. If I can't connect with the characters I tend to give up easily!

There were many light hearted moments in the book, and I absolutely loved the way the author used the quirkiness of the English language, where many things are lost in Translation.

"No tan lines! Good boy. Been sunbathing in the nuddy?"

"Whats the nuddy?"

If you are American and you don't know what this means, you really do need to read the book and all will become clear.

I didn't want to put this book down and read it in two settings. This is now the second Sue Moorcroft book I've read and I'll certainly read all the others without hesitation.

If you want a book that's not heavy and will leave you with a smile on your face, then I definately recommend this!

Thanks to Choc Lit for allowing me to review this book. I was not paid for my review
