This was my first historical romance. I saw it being noted as available on netgalley, and I went for it. I’m glad I did because I enjoy the manner of writing Jess Michaels uses in this genre. Anne is being forced to marry Harcourt, but she doesn’t love him. Luckily, Ellis Maitland is going to take her away and marry him. Except he leaves her stranded on an island with his cousin, Rook. Once it’s established Ellis is a slimy jerk, Rook becomes the hero! Or not because he’s got a terrible past of crime and horrible things he has to keep from Anne. Alright, this book starts out slow. I wasn’t really loving it at first because I didn’t care about how Anne is a triplet or her family. I get it... triplets are a miracle during this time. Anyway! But once the tension starts building between her and Rook, this book is just one to be devoured. The romance is lovely. The steamy scenes are excellent. The entire story is superb. Though this is the second book so I was a little lost but they explain it well enough. I still plan to read the first one, and the prologue has made me so eager for the story of the final sister. I can’t recommend this enough to anyone who loves historical romance or just romance in general. Once you begin this book, it’s impossible to not race to the end to get the happy ending. I find it’s worth the time and swoon factor though. I love this book and this new to me author!
