This was a really good book and I enjoyed it a little more then I did the first in this series One Dance with a Duke, I think this was because I preferred the characters of Rhys and Merry. I am a little bit of a sucker for a tortured hero, and Rhys definitely fit the bill with his heartbreaking childhood, self loathing and pinch of violence. And Merry, she was a stong female character and I liked that she didn’t give into Rhys straight away.
This also had a small secondary romance as well! I love a book that has a secondary romance! But, I was a little disappointed that we didn’t see Amelia and Spencer from the first book, I like to check in with previous HEAs make sure that all is well in paradise.
This was another great read in this trilogy, I don’t think this is going to be on my favourite books list, but it is worth reading if you want some quality historical romance.
Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
