What better way to start off a week than with a lovely little romantic romp?
Eugenie Talbot has committed the ultimate faux-pas – laughing during her presentation to the Queen. She didn’t mean to, it just simply escaped. But her aunt is freaking out about it anyways, and is now insisting that Genie get hitched, tout-suite! Before anything else goes wrong with her Season…
Then Genie goes and gets caught talking to unrepentant rogue William Grant. A girl can’t win for all these rules!
Amanda Forester’s A Wedding in Springtime is fun and silly and sweet and romantic. Our hero is a rogue, for sure, but one who’s still very much a gentleman. Our heroine is a victim of circumstance, and nobody will let her forget it. Well, except for our hero, who volunteers for a fate worse than death to ensure Genie isn’t ostracized, for starters. By the end of the book, he’s “adopted” a street urchin, fought off nefarious intentions of a traitor, and lost his heart. Busy man, huh?
There’s more than our hero and heroine, of course. William’s best friend is contracted for marriage to Genie’s cousin, and neither seem to be interested in actually walking down the aisle. Then there’s the plotting and planning, for both matrimonial and treasonous purposes. Amanda Forester gives us likable characters, snappy dialog, and sweet, sweet romance. What more can a girl ask for? Give A Wedding in Springtime a whirl if this is your thing, and enjoy some springtime reading!
