4 Stars: I Really Liked It

Lord Clayton Clearbrook discovers that he needs to marry quickly in order to secure his inheritance, so he sets his sights on Miss Briana Garland, a bluestocking with a brain most men would envy. Briana has secretly admired the handsome nobleman since she was a child, but because of her past, she is wary of trusting in love. Besides, she has her own plans and they do not include a husband! Yet when the couple is hurled into the middle of an assassination plot involving the Prince Regent, they soon discover that love may be the most important weapon of all…

My Thoughts:
The first book was the story of Emily, the only girl with 4 older brothers. Next was the story of the youngest brother Stephen. Now this book tells the story of Clayton the 3rd of the 4 brothers. At the beginning the story flashes back to six years earlier when Bree was 16 and Clayton was 20 and she had a major crush on him even though he didn’t seem to notice his little sister’s friend. It was a fun way to start the story. A lot had happened over those six years, mostly because of the war. I loved the relationship shown between the siblings. I was able to see more of Emily and Stephen’s stories.

I think Clay was my favorite brother to read about. Bree was great too. I definitely rolled my eyes at their . . . idiot-ness though. They were clueless to the other’s feelings for them because of their own pride and insecurities. This third book followed the same order of things from the first two books, but I didn’t mind. It was such a joy to read!

Another wonderful and clean historical romance!
