Lady Hope’s Dashing Devil (Regency Seasons #9) by Ava Stone
Synopsis: Lady Hope Post has suffered the most rotten luck over the last year. She’s lost the love of her life. Her great-uncle and Machiavellian matchmaker the Duke of Danby has a special license just waiting for her somewhere. And after one tiny little phaeton accident in the park, the most devilish earl attempts to blackmail her over the incident.
Thaddeus Baxter, the Earl of Kilworth has every intention of restoring luster to the earldom he’s inherited from his ne’er-do-well cousin, but when an adventurous lady upends his phaeton in the park, all of Thad’s perfectly respectable plans are tossed out the window. What are the odds he’d cross paths with the same girl who’d nearly brought down his cousin’s earldom in the first place? And what are the odds he’d lose his heart to her as well?
Review: A short read that focuses on the wild triplet, the one that supposedly had found love than lost it when he died. She crashes into the new Lord Kilworth and the first impressions aren’t that flattering on either side. He seems to set his foot into his mouth at least one more time and she tries to play him for a fool, but Danby is at it again though he really doesn’t have to do anything except hand over the special license. Their romance was fast, sweet, and just a little bit passionate. It was enjoyable, though I think it could have been dragged out more and expanded. 90 pages really does not leave you with a well-satisfied feeling after you finish reading it. I seem to always want more from Ava Stone’s stories. More naughty and less sweet-cute, but this wasn’t as tame as Patience’s story so there was that plus.
A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.
