I love Ms. Higgin's novels and will continue to read her books as they come out. She creates vibrant, colorful characters and clean, but passionate, romance in which her readers may immerse themselves and drift into another realm.
I loved the beginning when Lady Judith Faraday sneaks out of her home to meet her fiance, Alex, and runs into the 'highway men' instead. I laughed til I almost cried! Judith is a very likable heroine, a bit childish acting at times, but likable all the same. The measures she took to capture Trey's attentions and dissuade her other suitors were clever and amusing.
Trey Worthington...I really liked him. He was the perfect combination of rogue and gentleman. I did find his hesitation to give his heart to Judith understandable at first but after awhile I wanted to scream, "Get over yourself already!" so he and Judith could begin their happily ever after.
My favorite character however was Trey's best friend, Nic. I am so hoping he has his own story coming out...and soon!
Although "The Sweetest Kiss" is classified as a clean romance, it is very sensual at times. However, this does not dissuade from the reading of the novel at all. In fact, it only adds to the level of feeling that Judith and Trey feel for one another. It's sensual yet very tasteful.
I would recommend this novel to fans of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice or Emma. (Originally Reviewed for Not Now...Mommy's Reading)
1-Intense sexual chemistry between the H and h, but no sex! These days that's hard to find in a book.
2- clean language
3- well developed plot that was believable
4- thought out characters who are likeable
Thank you Mrs. Higgins for being a great storyteller, but also for having integrity in your writing. It is refreshing to read a book that I don't have to cringe my way through because of sex or language. I will be reading more of your books!
I thought that this would be a clean, light read. While I didn't come across any graphic details, I got tired of the story. Most of the relationship between the hero and heroine was too much based on attraction only. They kept having reoccurring thoughts of what they wanted to do with each other. Both seem to think that they must be in love if they feel jealous about the other. Dysfunctional! The heroine seems nice enough, but no real details given of having a life outside of her relationship with Hero and his mother. Only one supportive cast member with a bit of a story to him. This story was drawn out list of kisses, accusations, and poor decisions to be much of anything else. Wish I hadn't paid for this. Will not seek more from this author
The bad: she was a bit wishy washy. The plot was a bit iffy with "her secret engagement" she didn't react believably with that part. Also, no epilogue, so no concrete happily ever after.
Overall: kept me interested, well written, no glaring errors. One of the better free kindle offerings in a while.
If you love a book where the characters from the beginning cannot keep their lips and hands off each other, this book IS for you.
I didn't like this book because Trey is too much of a "player" and Judith is way too "easy" for this time period. The proposal at the end is super unromantic. Yah, I realize Trey decided to say those things in public and "save" Judith, but her reputation would have been ruined and it WOULD have bothered her and Trey's family. However, the family all seem perfectly okay with it, they are just glad Trey has finally decided to settle down. By the end of the book I was not convinced that they were truly in love and that their relationship was going to make it. I WAS convinced that they couldn't wait to jump into bed together. The author did a fine job of making that clear.
On a positive note, I did like the first line of the book, I was intrigued. Also, she does know how to write a steamy love scene.
There are so many good regency romance novels out there, this one was not one I'd recommend. I will probably never read another book from this author again.
