I like my characters to be believable and their problems realistic. Such was the case with Frederick and Portia. In addition to well developed and believable characters, Ms. Ivy gives us a period romance that is mercifully missing the ridiculous 'misunderstandings' and resultant bitter feelings that so often litter period romance novels. Both characters had fairly straightforward problems requiring thoughtful resolution. The best news is that they sought comfort in each other even as they struggled with issues of their pasts as well as their respective present. They have each experienced terrible heartbreak but are not so irrevocably broken that their relationship is more about triage than love. I really liked these two and, while the HEA was a foregone conclusion, the journey to get there was a really good read.
So, why 4 stars rather than 5? Mostly because Amazon doesn't allow half stars. I have deducted a half star because I felt that the incessant descriptions of Frederick's masculine beauty were excessive. I didn't need to be reminded of it on nearly every page whenever Frederick and Portia were together.
Bedding the Baron is book one in the Illegitimate Bachelor series. Will I continue to book two? Most definitely.
The character's seemed real, their problems didn't seem over the top either. I am not going to repeat the premise of the story, just what you will discover reading it.
I enjoyed how the author starts out the story and the way she introduces our 3 men who will all have their own stories told.
There is passionate lovemaking, mildly or slightly above mild but not vulgar or erotic at all.
There is tension, secrets to expose, great friendship, romance that builds slowly, no cliffhanger and we get a great HEA. I enjoyed this story so much, that I am off to explore Ian's story and what secrets he unravels. (ljb)
