My Fair Lover
– Nicole Jordan
Genre : Historical romance
Rating : ♥♥♥
My review : My Fair Lover by Nicole Jordan was a good book. I’m really ashamed of how long it took me to read it. But that’s not the book’s fault, that’s all on me. I didn’t choose the right time to start it as I was really busy. And I regret it because I’m sure that’s the kind of book I could have read in one go.
♥ The story ♥
My Fair Lover tells the story of Lady Katherine and Brandon Deverill. Six years ago, Brandon broke Kathy’s heart by leaving her to go at war against the English, her own countrymen. Today he’s back and she needs his help to recover lost family treasures. In exchange, she offers him to help him find a bride. She then starts to teach him how to properly woo a Lady but Deverill has more interesting lessons to teach Lady Katherine, those of passion and love.
♥ What I liked ♥
- The start is fabulous and intriguing. And after that I was never bored.
- The characters are strong and honest, their banter is fun and sweet and the intimate scenes are hot and passionate.
- I loved the story, I felt like there were two parts but then maybe that’s because of how I read it.
- There was no unnecessary drama so I’m really glad, I got to enjoy every scene immensely.
♥ What I liked less ♥
The down parts (hence my rating) is I felt there was something missing from a certain point. Things were a bit rushed from there.
Nonetheless, it still is another great historical romance and I recommend for lovers of the genre. I’m definitely interesting in reading other books from this series and this author.
Have you read it ? If yes, I would love to hear your thoughts.
More details (Goodreads) :
Lady Katherine Wilde believes she has crushed any lingering romantic feelings toward Brandon Deverill, who spurned her six years ago. And now that the rough-edged rogue needs polishing to claim his inheritance, she’s willing to strike a practical bargain: Kate will mold the brash privateer into an acceptable English nobleman if Deverill will safeguard her from brigands on a voyage to recover lost family treasure. However, the soul-melting kiss that seals their agreement just may reignite blazing passion.
Brandon’s fortitude was sorely tested when he turned Kate away from his bed all those years ago. Even a rake such as he wouldn’t seduce an innocent beauty before sailing into battle. But now that he’s inherited a title and must take a suitable bride, he sets his sights on Kate. Though he fiercely desires her, true love is a notion that baffles him–until their adventure turns perilous and Brandon realizes he’d gladly trade his life to save the woman who has captured his heart.
