Teaching scandalous young men a lesson? This is not your typical book club
To Rebecca Sherringham, all men are open books-read quickly and forgotten. Perhaps she's just too practical for love. The last thing she needs is another bore around-especially one that's supposed to be dead.
Captain Lucius "Luke" Wainwright turns up a decade after disappearing without a trace. He's on a mission to claim his birthright and he's not going away again until he gets it. But Becky and the ladies of the village Book Club Belles Society won't let this rogue get away with his sins. He'll soon find that certain young ladies are accustomed to dealing with villains.
I love the Book Club Belles! Rebecca might not be everyone's favorite heroine but she's definitely entertaining. She is spoiled and overly demanding and truthfully rather too full of herself at most times but we all know and love at least one person like this don't we? Luke was rather and odd choice of match for her at first thought but then as I realized the correlation between this story and Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility I believe the author did a rather magnificent job of making the tale her own. I loved seeing some of my favorite characters from the first installment and meeting some new ones and I am looking forward to the next adventure in this series. If you are a fan of spunky historical heroines with modern attitudes then this one will definitely be just your cup of tea.
