I enjoyed this story and especially liked Adrian. He was a caring man who does everything in his power to resist the charms of Caro. They both struggle against their growing attraction and this sets up most of the conflict in the story. Throw in a disreputable gentleman who is determined to acquire Caro's filly at any means and a silly heir to the duke and the cast is nicely rounded out. However, I did not care for how the duke's heir was portrayed as such a timid and ridiculous character. I thought that was a little over the top. All in all, I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to fans of regency romances.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Adrian is the tall, handsome stranger who stops to help her out. Their chemistry is immediately evident. But, at this point, Caro has no idea that Adrian is there to interview for the estate manager's position... and, turn her world upside down... beginning with wanting to plant crops in the fields where she rides and trains her prized mare. And, so a battle with Adrian ensues.
Adrian is an honest, kind, compassionate, upstanding, educated man that is, unfortunately, also an illegitimate son of a peer of the realm. Although he is wildly attracted to Caro, he feels that he is too far below her "station" to ever have any kind of life with her. And, thus, he tries his best to avoid her amorous advances... which only makes Caro more determined in her pursuit. I loved that they don't jump right into bed on page 2. There is a smoldering build up that is almost akin to a courtship -- a very antagonistic courtship, but a courtship nonetheless. I love the way that Adrian ultimately shows his love for her by showing that he cares about what she cares about. (Any more than that would spoil it for you.)
I am ready and eagerly waiting for the next in the series.
*I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley & Random House - Loveswept in order to read and provide a voluntary, unbiased and honest review, should I choose to do so.
Lady Caroline Wilde, daughter of the Duke of Sherrington, is a hoyden. She has always run wild. She rides her beloved horse astride and adheres to no rules abiding the women of her times.
It is when she is out searching for her nephew he meets Adrian Crosby. When he first see her she is covered with mud trying to help her nephew and he aids them both.
She does not realize he is heading to her manor for interview for the estate managers position. She is immediately attracted to him and he to her. Adrian was born on the other side of the blanket a bi-blow and below her class. Adrian remembers his back ground but she wants him to forget and makes things difficult for him to reject her.
I enjoyed this book but I did feel the first book in the series was a bit better. I believe Ms Macnamarra is a gifted novelist and will certainly continue to follow her.
Adrian is the new state agent at Sherrington. His goal is to take care of the state and make it profitable again.
I understand Caro’s situation. Women in that time were mostly a way to have heirs and glowed in balls. They had no independence, no freedom, no inheritance. The only thing Caro wanted was to be accepted as a great rider, as good as any men or even better.
I like how Carol rebels against her father wish because even though he is the Duke he doesn’t act like one being all the time in bed or secluded in his room.
I like Adrian a lot: he is honest, he care about people and try to help them when in need. He hates when someone tries to benefit from other people and mostly when they are in inferior conditions.
My favourite part is the horse auction.
