I would definitely recommend this book to fellow readers. Loved this book - a perfect blend of historical romance and steamy sex rolled into one!
This is not the typical romance where the lord has to marry or it’s forced by accident/circumstance. It also is no the type where the lord is brooding and fighting his attraction. In this book, it’s the opposite. Cooper decides that it’s time to produce an heir and is looking for a timid biddable wife to do this. He sets his eyes on Lady Emily, little does she know that she is engaged in some dangerous extracurricular activities.
The story revolves around Cooper trying to gain Emily’s trust and Emily fighting him at every stop. Cooper knows what he wants and will stop at nothing to make her love him and trust him. It was an entertaining read that I enjoyed. I liked that it wasn’t like historical romances that I typically read.
I do feel like it did get a bit repetitive at times with Emily and Cooper fighting over the same things. Also Emily’s brother’s reformation was too easy and fast for it to seem even slightly believable. Emily was so frustrating! I just wanted her to trust Cooper, since he was always just trying to help her and her family out.
I liked that Taming his Hellion Countess had lots of strong characters, especially women who believe in being independent. The story was also pretty steamy and spoke a lot about spankings, so if you are uncomfortable with reading about that, skip those parts. I hope you give this story a try!
I liked the way book 1 in the series mixed historical and BDSM--the first time I'd read a book with that particular combo--and I enjoyed the mix just as much here. The chemistry between Cooper and Emily was very hot, and I loved the recognition that it takes time to build trust, and that trust and honesty are particularly important in these kinds of relationships. Emily has plenty of good reasons to distrust the men in her life, so Cooper has his work cut out for him earning that trust. Emily makes her share of mistake, too, but help from their friends (some of those carryover characters) help to smooth the way for both of them.
Emily especially was an interesting character; I liked that she wasn't a typical wallflower, but she was independent (if maybe a little headstrong) and not afraid to take a path that was outside normal social boundaries. Cooper thought Emily would make a proper, docile wife; just how wrong he was made me laugh, but I had to admire him for being more attracted to her as he learned just how spirited and independent she was, in spite of how it messed with his plans.
Lots of great secondary characters here and I really loved the friendships between the Lustful Lords; I actually would have liked to have seen a little more of them, but hopefully in the upcoming books in the series. My only caveats about the story were that it seemed a little light on plot at times, and I did have a question about how easily Emily's brother changed his ways, but neither really detracted from my enjoyment.
If you like historicals, and you like BDSM, this is a quick, enjoyable read with engaging characters, lots of heat and some nice touches of humor. 4.5 stars
