Lady Grace Belmont has come to London with her recently widowed Aunt Kate to have one season before her father marries her off to their exceedingly boring neighbour. Her Aunt Kate is encouraging her to look for other eligible gentleman before she settles, but she didn’t expect her to immediately be attracted to Baron Dawson. David, Baron Dawson, has come to London with his Uncle Alex to find a wife but all the London misses hold none of his attention, until of course he sees the ravishing Lady Grace.This book was very much like the first one in the series; funny and light hearted, with a very likeable main couple. The Naked Baron also had the benefit of having a very strong secondary romance, in fact I hesitate to call is secondary and it had almost the same amount as page time as the main couple Grace and David.
Both romances were cute and very very lusty, I swear the men in this just walked around with constant erections, every time they so much as looked at the heroine. It was funny in someways, but I felt the romance was dampened a little by the way the David just constantly thought about her boobs! He had a serious obsession, I never got the impression he married her because he loved her, but more because he was dying to see her breasts!
But it was a fun read and although I won’t rush out and buy the next one I will probably read it…eventually!
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?
