So, it's been a long time (well, okay, about a month), since I've read a historical romance novel and about two months since I read one I loved. And then this book came along on my reading schedule (I seriously have a schedule these days, it's crazy) and I really, really enjoyed it.
I had almost forgotten how much fun these books can be! I've been having a bit of a reading slump lately, and read some amazing books, but none of them as relaxing as the historical romance novels that are my guilty pleasure.
Rosalind is a wonderful heroine, she's a good friend and sister and knows exactly what she wants. I loved that she's known the hero (who is delightfully handsome) for a couple of years, it gives the relationship some depth. She and Nicholas have wonderful chemistry and I really enjoyed reading about them.
Nicholas sounds absolutely dreamy and he's got a huge sense of loyalty to his friend: Rosalind's older brother.
I did think it was a bit odd that nobody would tell Rosalind who her guardian was to be, since they all thought she'd figure it out anyway. But that didn't detract from the storyline in general. Extra brownie points for Nicholas' ubercute nieces! I loved those two little girls, though they have a small role in all of this.
This was a nice, relaxing, but a bit short read and if you enjoy romance novels like me, this could be right up your alley!
My rating: 4 stars
