The heroine, Eleanor de Lacy, is someone a contemporary woman can relate to –normal as normal can be with a few eccentricities. Remington Knight was oozing with sex appeal and is mega-rich.
What I liked about the book:
- Remington Knight is a man of action. He wanted to marry Eleanor de Lacy and he did so in less than six days. Talk about whirlwind romance.
- Its the first book I read in which the betrothal was a result of a wager at cards. If Knight won, he gets to marry the duchess. If he loses to Duke Magnus de Lacy, he loses his shipping company. High stakes indeed!
- Ever read of a heroine who drank? Eleanor drunk brandy on her betrothal party, leading to a rather steamy, unfinished encounter with Remington. Now, that’s patikim…
- Taught me what SWIVING is… Haven’t encountered that term before. Thanks to Dodd, I now know what it is.
- A mongrel is named Lizzie. It’s sex wasn’t mentioned (Or I may have just missed it).
So if you’re looking for something light to read, check this one out.
Thanks Shie for lending me the book! Domo Arigato.
