This felt like a cross between a Tessa Dare and Elizabeth Hoyt which is an odd combination but two authors I like for totally different reasons There is Dare s humor and lightness to the characters and dialogue but the essential plot and character development has some of darkness and depth and redemption of HoytBelle and Crecy are living with their disgusting Aunt who is plotting to sell them off as mistresses unless they get their act together and find husband s stat She is such a ratfink that I would have loved of her and her outrageous acts Belle is particularly concerned about Crecy who is gorgeous but could care less about the Ton men or marriage If it were 2019 she would be heading a CSI team or be the lead forensic pathologist as she loves all things dead and damaged She and her damaged but not dead hero are in the next book To Tame a Savage Heart Why do I feel that the editorpublisher had a hand in that horrible bodice rippery titleThe H is a PTSD victim of Waterloo and very anti social He s tormented by the men he sent to die in battle and his own survival The only reason he has agreed to a house party is to make his little sister happy Emma Leech does an excellent job later in the book humanizing the survivors of war Reading a Regency or any historical it is easy to romanticize their war and battles as opposed to our modern wars The horror devastation and brutality of any war and what it does to the survivors is brought home in a just a few pages as Leech introduces various survivors No gross war details but a uiet scene that brought home to me the toll of war The heroine has set her cap on a pleasant young man who is obsessed with rocks She s nit happy about it but is compelled to protect her sister She is blunt with herself and the hero when he calls her on her evil entrapment plot She lays out uite clearly the options available to her and her sister as women in society Marriage or ruinHer plot goes awry and the H and h end up married It s rough sailing for the two at first where the only place they can connect is in bed The heroine comes up with a nice plan for redemption that was pretty believable If you like Mary Balogh s Survivor s Club series you would probably like this Both series deal with the devastation war has on its immediate survivors and their loved onesThere were some issues with backstory not being developed or explained enough but I ve picked this up in the middle of the series Despite that an enjoyable read with minimal character stupidity so four stars for a job well doneThe uirky Crecy and her dark dark beau sound very promising
