*Thank you to Netgalley and Samantha Hastings for the review copy.
This was so much fun. Samantha has the best “Meet Cutes” in her romances and this one did not disappoint. I loved how fierce Louisa is from the start. She’s been sheltered by her mean aunt and uncle but with the help of four sisters, a lady’s maid, and one handsome Marquess, she’s about to make her grand debut!
The setting of course was perfect and I want to go strutting around the English countryside on the hunt for the animal sanctuary that the Marquess and his family run. Wick’s sisters are fantastic. I love how much fun they always have and the mischief they get into. I enjoyed getting to know them all and loved how welcoming they are to Louisa. She definitely stumbles upon the right family to help her out of her predicament.
The romance develops at just the right pace and gave me some Elizabeth & Darcy vibes. Wick’s past has lead him to keep those close to him at arms length because he knows what it feels like to lose someone you love. His fight against his feelings for Louisa made for a very entertaining read because he’s the last to admit what is clearly seen by all those around him.
I will always read, love, and recommend these regency romances to all those looking for some history with their romance!
