My first & not last read for Lisa Kleypas! & this is my first introduction to Historical Romance novels, gotta say I’m loving it.
4 ladies who are about to become spinsters, are very eager to find a husband so they can settle down & stop all the talks & gossips surrounding them. It starts with the eldes one. Annabelle, is willing to marry out of love just to be able to provide for her family. After her father’s death, their finances went down & couldn’t afford to pay their bells. So she swore she’ll find a husband who’s rich enough to provide for her family.
Comes Simon Hunt, who steals a kiss from Annabelle & leaves her confused. He’s not the kind that would get married, so he’s out of her league. As she tries to lure Lord Kendal to marry her with the help of her 3 other friends, Simon starts appearing in her life more than often. & starts to seduce her …
The characters are very funny, specially the American sisters (The Bowmans). Annabelle is very intelligent & strong, you can feel that from the words of the novel! as for Simon’s character, you won’t like him at first, I hated his character but then slowly started falling for him. Very charming & full of passion. Suits Annabelle just perfectly, but as I said, he’s not willing to get married now!
Loved the plot ALOT, & can’t wait to read the 2nd book of this series & see what will happen to Lillian Bowman & who she will marry :)
