This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
It’s been several months since I read a historical romance, so when I was sent this book and saw it was number six in a series, I got excited. I had planned on reading the first five first, but I hadn’t planned for grad school to completely kick my ass, so I started with Wild, Wild Rake, but I have moved onto the first in the series, The Bad Luck Bride because I loved it so much.
One of my favorite things about the genre of historical romance is that the female main characters are often so strong. MacGregor’s women are no exception. Avalon has been through a lot, which has made her a little jaded at times. Given her history, though, her reaction and unwillingness to trust are understandable and realistic.
The best part of this book was Devan. He was funny, sweet, and so lovable. If you’ve read my reviews before, you know I despise alpha males. Devan was definitely not that. And he’s a virgin! I love that trope so much.
Both Avalon and Devan showed substantial growth in character throughout the book. The love was a slow start, but so, so sweet. The ending was well done and satisfying, as well.
As I said, I’ve already starting read the first in this series because I loved it so much, but you can read it as a standalone; however, if you decide to read it as a series, you will recognize characters from the other books.
