All’s Fair in Love and Abduction
Coddled and pampered, since her mother’s death, Vesta Chambers is preparing for her come-out only to have her father return from London with a bride of his own! With her world turned upside down, Vesta accompanies her godmother to London, where she is smitten the instant she lays eyes on Captain Hewett DeVere of the Seventeenth Light Dragoons.
Captain Hew DeVere, younger brother to Vesta’s godfather, Viscount Ludovic “The Devil” DeVere, has returned from the American war scarred, disillusioned, and looking forward to settling down to a quiet and respectable life. When Hew turns his eyes toward the widowed Diana, Vesta is prepared to take extreme measures to prove just how wrong he is. But, Hew didn’t survive the worst of the war only to succumb to Vesta’s wayward wiles.
Proving the adage that opposites attract, this hilarious romantic romp pits a would-be huntress against a gallant hero in an epic war of wills.
This is not my normal kind read, but I did enjoy most of it. I like that it was a different take on the typical troupes. It did provide some laughs which is different from most like this and I really liked that. It is a faster read than I tend to like, but I did love a couple of scenes because they were funny. Even though I don’t tend to read books like this I still want to know what happens in the other books.
Vesta is every bit the spoiled brat. I didn’t like her until near the end when she realized what her actions can cause. I felt for her because she never expected her father to come home with a bride.
Hew is the kind of man that is easy to fall for. He’s a war hero and every bit the gentleman. He was exactly what she needed because he was her opposite. I liked his backstory and the twist with him.
