I am so glad that I found this book on Netgalley, and even though I have never read the author or any of the books in the series(obviously) I just had to give this a try because it sounded great! Also, it can be read as a standalone but I’m totally adding the others to my TBR pile!
Lilith is so refreshing and I love how she lives her life with a free spirited mind! Even with her past she is just such a great person. George is quite the guy too…his past is part of her past and it’s just a great build to a great story.
This kind of started out feeling a bit on the lighthearted side and I got really drawn in when it really seemed to have more depth and the characters were more than just ‘historical romance people’. I kind of shied away from historical for a while because of the repetitive stories. But this one just seems different the way it is written.
Overall, beautiful romance and a great story!
*I received a complimentary copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
