Not some goofy suspense thriller wannabe.
Not filled with more mistakes, bad grammer, and typos than actual readable material.
Not smutty, cheap porn.
Not even a so-called historical romance described in contemporary terms.
But an actual, honest to goodness historical romance!
What a refreshing change! I thouroughly enjoyed Her Scandalous Wish.
Bradford, Viscount Kingsley, left London seven years ago after he was told his first love and his best friend died in a fire. Returning to England after this long absence, he is thrust into the spotlight that a rich titled bachelor inevitably attracts. While attending a ball, he glimpses a familiar figure across the room. The sweet blonde drew him, even though he'd avoided light haired women for years as they reminded him of his lost love.
Bradford sneaks out of the ball and meets this mysterious blonde in the garden. They both unknowingly make a wish on the same shooting star, and Bradford steals a kiss that is returned with interest. Her brother finds them there in a compromising position (what ISN'T compromising in Regency England?) and demands Bradford duel or marry. Bradford is happy to make the honorable offer, but Philomena is afraid to trust him and leave herself open to abandonment again.
The book is #3 in a series, but is read easily as a stand alone book. I haven't read the previous two and had no trouble, there weren't numerous references to other couples in the series.
This one kept me entertained and happy. It was short and sweet, and even though we didn't spend much time with them, the characters were lovable. I did enjoy the relationship between Philomena and her brother, and think that the book could have been expanded easily to include more of their relationship. I'm giving it three stars because it was an enjoyable read without any editing issues, but probably won't read it again. I would definitely recommend it for someone with a spare hour or two to spend!
Philomena and her brother, Giles, are in London for the season. Philomena needs to marry before Giles dies. He is gravely ill with scarlet fever and time is of the essence.
This isn't going to be such an easy task, though. Philomena is a burn victim and even though it does not affect her face, she is scarred beneath her clothing. It's left her with a self-esteem problem, making her avoid perspective suitors from the ton. It's okay. They were toads anyway.
At a party, she and Giles decide to go get some air. Giles is sidetracked and Philomena goes outside by herself. She runs into a man who thinks he knows her and, as Bradford Knightely is kissing her, Giles discovers them and wants either satisfaction or marriage.
Bradford knew then that he'd just kissed his long lost love and without a lot of debate, tells Giles he will marry Philomena. Sounds simple enough, right? It isn't. It never is.
The conflict wasn't overbearing in the story, even though it could have been a much longer novel had it been. As mentioned above, I was worried there was going to be a cliffhanger. I guess that could mean the ending was a bit abrupt. I didn't think it was at all. Everything was paced just right.
This was a great way to spend an afternoon.
I spent a good few hours reading and thoroughly enjoying this well thought out and written story which has a re-blossoming love affair at the fore, the sadness of watching a brother die day by day and an aunt who is quite wonderful and very funny in the background.
Collette Cameron has done a great job of entertaining me with this novella and I am very happy to recommend it.
Bradford and Philomena had no idea that each of them thought the other one had left the other. Philomena thought Bradford left and never again thought of her because she hadn't received any letters from him the whole time he was gone. Bradford had thought he had lost Philomena in a fire and he had yet to find another woman that he loved as much as her.
Finding each other is a shock and both of them struggle with the fact that they had both been so very wrong and whereas their feelings for one another have never waned Philomena is not sure that either of them can get past her physical scars and possibly they could destroy their relationship before it even gets started.
I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.
