Mrs Penny Hampson is a discovery, she propose classic regency tale with a twist. And a rollercoaster ride it was.
What looked like a simple rescue, on a whim of her savior, opens the door to more intrigues than the heroine would have expected.
While Sophia knows who she is, she does not knows her origins, her raising was lonely without love. Here she is, a lonely miss of mysterious birth, seeking a companion post after avoiding a far darker fate. But why in first instance did she find herself in this predicament...
Phil is a gentleman, unable to turn his nose when he spots a woman in dire straits. Thus how he finds himself with a new charge, one not very willing to follow his order once she is safe.
Sophia while with few choices and options is no meek miss, she wants her say in the decisions made about her future.
Phil can be sure like most men very overwhelming, but it is not out of care for other’s feelings, more because he has the habit to take charge.
Why their relationship is at first strained by doubts and suspicions, their trust to one another is not something easily won, they both will have to work for it.
About the conspiracy, Phil more than one time raises the issue of why Sophia was specifically targeted. Yet no one really follows this lead, why they are for a shock why things are revealed.
In all, it was a diverting and pleasant read.
I was granted an advance copy by the author through Rachel’s Random Ressources. Here is my true and unbiased opinion.
Our thanks to the author and Rachel Random Resources for the advanced reader's copy.
Phil worked for the Crown, trying to uncover traitors that were helping France during the Napoleonic Wars.
One of his assignments took him to a known brothel, where he met the heroine, Sophia, clearly there against her will.
He rescued her and took her to his home, but she was less than happy with his high-handed ways, so she ran away.
They meet again some months later, and Phil discovers she is now companion to his friend's wife. But the madam from the brothel was after Sophia, and Phil felt duty-bound to protect her, even if they did not get along well.
I love the sensual tension between the characters and their fun bantering. Phil's protective nature balanced well with Sophia's impulsiveness.
The side characters were also exciting and well-rounded: some villains and some lovely friends.
A Bachelor's Pledge is a sweet historical romance with the right mix of romance and adventure.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Sophia is an intriguing character. She is a big of a mystery and I love her determination. Phil is a bit of a “take charge,” kind of man, but his heart is in the right place. Their relationship is not easy and that makes this story good.
As I said, this story has some twists which made it more enjoyable. I liked this book and would definitely say give it a shot.
*I received a free copy of this book from Rachel’s Random Resources in exchange for an honest review on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.*
Books based on this time period can be so hit-or-miss for me, but Hampson hit it out of the park! These characters hooked me and the plot kept me up reading this one through the night.
I enjoyed the mystery aspect of this one and felt like it was so wonderfully done–too much mystery and intrigue and I can get bored because I can feel like the author is just dragging the reader along. But, Hampson, beautifully crafted this story of a man haunted by a woman.
I’m definitely going to be reading the others in this series!
