BOOK REVIEW- CHASING THE HEIRESS
Lady Arabella Lucia Fairborne has no need of a husband. She has a fine inheritance for the taking, a perfectly capable mind, and a resolve as tough as nails. But what she doesn't have is the freedom to defy her cousin's will--and his will is to see her married immediately to the husband of his choosing. So is it any wonder that she dresses herself as a scullery maid and bolts into the night? Colin Somerville's current mission for the home office is going poorly. Who would have expected otherwise for a rakish spy tasked with transporting a baby to the care of the royal palace. But when, injured and out of ideas, Colin stumbles upon a beautiful maid who knows her way around a sickroom, it seems salvation has arrived. Until he realizes that though Lucy may be able to help him survive his expedition, he may not escape this ordeal with his heart intact… AMAZON 3.5 STARS
Although I really liked both of the main characters, I wasn't so sure I was going to make it all the way through this book. I was almost up to the 50% mark on my kindle and I was thinking it is moving SO slow. That really did interfere with my enjoyment of the book. But I say that "Lucy" who was being called had been through a lot and was about to have a lot more grief headed her way. I was like she had just about everything but the kitchen sink thrown at her. But of course, that did make the story more interesting. Although really tougher for Lucy and those around her. I really started for feel really bad for Lucy. And Colin was suffering in his own way too. There were interesting secondary people in the story and the hero of the piece, was a man of honor. He was also a man on a mission for the Crown. He had his secrets and she had hers. There were plenty of twists and turns in traumas as the story got further along.
Still in my final comments I would have to say, I wish the story had moved the pace a little faster in the beginning.
