A Summer to Remember
This Regency-era romance is fast paced and solidly written. The main characters are Kit Butler, a confirmed bachelor with a dangerous reputation who is intent on avoiding an arranged marriage, and Lauren Edgeworth, a young woman whose previous experience with love ended in humiliation when her fiance left her at the altar. The drama ensues when Kit determines that Lauren is the perfect foil for his father’s plans. Will she fall for the sensitive male hiding behind the mask? Will he succumb to her irresistible combination of beauty and vulnerability? Or will they go their separate ways as planned once the terms of their bargain have been fulfilled?
This is another enjoyable book by a best-selling author. My problem with it lies in the fact that some scenes and situations are virtually identical to those in another of her books which I reviewed previously. Is there anything wrong with that? That’s up for her readers to decide. But for their sake, had she indulged in even a slight rework, the result might have been more pleasing.
