When a man on a mission takes on a beautiful but unlikely ally, seduction and adventure are inevitable…
The dust of the Cabot sisters' shocking plans to rescue their family from certain ruin may have settled, but Prudence Cabot is left standing in the rubble of scandal. Now regarded as an unsuitable bride, she's tainted among the ton. Yet this unwilling wallflower is ripe for her own adventure. And when an irresistibly sexy American stranger on a desperate mission enlists her help, she simply can't deny the temptation.
The fate of Roan Matheson's family depends on how quickly he can find his runaway sister and persuade her to return to her betrothed. Scouring the rustic English countryside with the sensually wicked Prudence at his side—and in his bed—he's out of his element. But once Roan has a taste of the sizzling passion that can lead to forever, he must choose between his heart's obligations and its forbidden desires. -Goodreads
Honor and Grace may have had to marry men with issues in order to set tongues of the ton wagging, but their escapades pale to the point of transparency when in comparison to those of Prudence Cabot!
Prudence may be the "good one" but she has her sights set on a little adventure before slinking quietly into the life of spinsterhood, and servitude to their ailing mother.
Little does she know that her "little adventure" will change everyone's lives in far bigger ways than anyone could ever imagine.
This third installment of Julia London's The Cabot Sisters series is filled with fun, flirt, and action.
Because Prudence is so bound and determined to make a big splash, it is only fitting that she have a leading man worthy of her wake. And who better than American businessman Roan Matheson.
These two are great together from the start...
Lost sisters, missed destinations, shooting contests, and make-shift camps beneath English skies make for a wonderful change from the formality of ballrooms and decorum.
There is a very natural give and take, as the two take turn saving each other over and over.
This is a wonderfully fast paced romance that holds the reader in thrall for almost 85% (kindle approximation) of the book.
There are minor hiccups in the form of an unnecessary offer of marriage from one Lord Stanhope, on the English side.
Coupled with an equally nonsensical "intervention" by Roan's outspoken sister.
The romantic scenes are very passionate and add the perfect connection that rounds out the story.
This is an awesome book, and the perfect addition to this series.
