Kate Reading is AMAZING! (now that the obvious is out of the way :o)
Loretta Chase is a character writer - more to the point - a character in..Show More »teraction / dialogue writer. She can have (but usually doesn't) a lack luster story but her characters interactions and dialogue make the whole book wonderful.
This book had a little different story - not the typical girl looking for a man - falls in love with a rake. This is more girl is NOT looking for a man - falls for a rake - but has a secret that could ruin her family name. Okay the rake in this situation is the youngest Carsington brother - Darius. He is hard NOT to fall for. He's good looking (& knows it), charismatic (and knows it), and Oh those hands! Plus he takes a young unwanted boy who under his wing which makes him irresistible.
Charlotte is a great character and I absolutely love the interaction between her and Darius. I loved this book and it is definitely worth a credit!
Francesca and James are PERFECT TOGETHER!!!! Loretta Chase has a knack for creating great characters with even better chemistry! The back and forth ..Show More »banter between these two is AMAZING! The story is interesting, but honestly - the dialogue between Francesca and James is just what makes the book. On top of great main characters - there are a bevy of supporting characters that are an absolute riot at times and just as well written. Loretta Chase is definitely in my top 5 writers and this is in the top 5 of the books she's written. That being said - I KNOW that the characters of this book could not come alive as they do without Kate Reading! She is the MASTER of making characters interactions and banter come to life! She is the best all around narrator I have listened to..from romance, to Epic Fantasy she makes it all come alive!
WORTH 2 CREDITS in my opinion! Do not miss this one!
