When Oliver, Earl of Stewkesbury, asks the dashing Lady Vivian Carlyle to ensure that his American cousins meet the cream of London society, he doesn’t anticipate the danger she will pose to his own self-control. Thrown into intimate contact with the lovely lady, Oliver finds he cannot stop thinking of Vivian—of her wit, of her smile . . . of her lips. And when Vivian, who has sworn never to subject herself to the bonds of matrimony, boldly suggests that she and Oliver become lovers instead, her scandalous proposal is temptation indeed! But with an alarming series of jewel thefts rocking London, the ever-outrageous Vivian insists on trying to discover the perpetrator despite Oliver’s admonitions. And when a bold lady steps into danger, it is a gentleman’s duty to protect her at all costs. What neither Oliver nor Vivian can anticipate, however, is that the ultimate cost may be both their hearts. . .
Fluffiety fluff romances…. Oh how I love thee!! You are a distraction from the drudgery of life. You lift me up when I’m feeling blue. You give me an escape. You cleanse my palette in between deeper more complex books. I love you.
The end of the Willowmere trilogy did not disappoint. We finally get around to Vivian and Oliver’s story. I knew it was coming (these books aren’t hard to predict). I was glad when we finally got a women who was feisty, independent, and definitely knew what she wanted. It was great fun to see her shake up the stodgy Lord Stewkesbury. Fun fun! This author is going on my list of fun reads and the books are going into my upcoming birthday month giveaway (coming March 1st).
