These two were just made for each other. Who would have thought that the ever selfish swindler Georgie Turner, Jack’s brother from The Soldier’s Scoundrel would not only play well with others but go out of his way to help? I wouldn’t have.
I loved this book. It was as good as The Soldier’s Scoundrel (which I loved) and we all know how difficult second books in book series have it.
I loved the banter, the initial prickliness of Lawrence which morphed into something softer, his dawning realization that he wasn’t in fact mad and Gerogie’s help to get him to that point. The writing was on point, the secondary characters were well fleshed out and relatable and the story flows smoothly.
For a moment,I thought the story had gotten a bit predictable but on getting to the point I thought I had predicted, I was thrown for a loop at Georgie’s actions. I always love when that happens.
We got a glimpse of the totally unscrupulous Lord Courtenay in this story and I hear the next book would be about him. If his book is anything as close to how good the first two books in this series were. I know I’ll be in for an enjoyable experience and I just can’t wait!!
