Title: A Reckless Promise
Author: Kasey Michaels
Stars: 4 out of 5
While reading this book I felt I could close my eyes and step back in time and enjoy a visit to old England. While there I was able to be a bystander and watch a delightful love affair evolve between two well written and described characters. Both of whom are headstrong and with perceived faults that they try to keep secret from each other. If you are a fan of strong no nonsense heroines, and likeable heroes, you will enjoy this offering.
I have given this book four stars and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical romance novels.
I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.
London's Little Season has never been so scandalous
It's the kind of vow often made on the battlefield. Darby Travers, Viscount Nailbourne, never imagines he'll have to honor it. Yet here she is on his doorstep—his late comrade's young daughter, and Darby's new ward. Worse, she comes with the most overprotective, mistrustful, bothersome chaperone—the child's aunt, Sadie Grace Boxer. Darby is quite sure that behind her lovely facade, the woman is guarding a secret.
Sadie Grace faced many trials working in her brother's surgery, but none prepared her for the world she's thrust into with his passing. Navigating the ton, with its endless ball gowns and parade of parties, is difficult enough, but hiding the truth about her niece while the sophisticated viscount watches her every move proves nearly impossible—particularly when his searing gaze tempts her to bare all. But when her family's past catches up with her, she'll have to trust in Darby…no matter the cost to her heart.
