I haven’t read many HR books, so I’m kind of new to the genre. I found out about this book when I saw a review on GR and I was instantly intrigued! I’m so glad that I picked this book, since it’s my favorite HR book so far!!
I was curious to read Jennifer and Royce’s story! I always love a strong female character that doesn’t bow down to anyone and speaks her mind. Jennifer is exactly that! She may be described as the plain sister but her mind and courage makes up for what she “lacks” on appearance. She’s a Scot, whose clan has been fighting against the English for quite a while. When she and her sister are abducted by their clan’s worst enemy, the Wolf, she finds herself in a dangerous situation. I liked how Jennifer held her ground against Royce aka “The Wolf”, even though she knew his reputation. Royce is described as the most feared man in England. The only one that doesn’t show fear is Jenny! That fact is both amusing and infuriating for him.
The book is quite big, so many things happen from start to end. Without spoiling everything, we get to see the interactions between Royce and Jenny and how they both change their ways for each other. I was totally in synchronize with all the emotions in the book; I felt everything alongside the characters.
I don’t think that I’ve read another Regency romance. However, this one was the perfect introduction to the era and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. I feel that I found a new favorite author and I really love how she writes HR!!
