Sarah has been through humiliation and is wary of getting involved with a rake. Adam is a rake who dallies with widows and married women. Unlikely that they will be together, right? This is a fun read. I like Sarah, her sisters and SIL, Megs.
On a side note, these royal families do have a lot of time for leisure and celebrations, do they?
I love the continuation of the little stories in this book. I just had to go back to the earlier ones when the scenes merge.
All stories are good but I like the last one, that is Sophia and Max, the best. It feels like 12 years though is too long to have them in separate lives.
The thief? I had an inkling about it even before it was revealed.
I like how the characters seem to understand each other well. Gemma’s long suffering experiences has made her wary but it has also made her stronger. Sam is so sweet and loving. That part when she was framed for theft, during the fireworks, I wanted to stop reading because I didn’t want to read about her being thought of as a bad person.
Her aunt is a paragon of patience and understanding and the perfect companion who not only protects her but knows her well too.
The Duke’s Shotgun Wedding by Stacy Reid is a fascinating, fast-paced novella full of secrets, romance and intrigue. For two strong personalities with their own quirks, the story was sweet, hot, fun and an enjoyable read. To those unfamiliar with historical romance genre, this is a good initiation book.
Too bad it was a short story. It would have been wonderful to get to know these characters more.
