Bestselling historical romance Minerva Spencer returns to her Rebels of the Ton Series with Outrageous. This sequel, which works as a standalone, is set to be released on June 29th and is definitely a book to add to your summer TBR.
When Eva de Courtney kidnaps Godric Fleming, her only plan is to stop the irritating earl from persecuting her beloved brother. But once she has the intriguing rogue in the confines of her carriage, she longs to taste the passion she senses simmering beneath his rugged exterior. Her forbidden plan is foiled, however, when Godric turns the tables, taking her hostage instead—and demanding they marry at once! The last thing Godric wants to do is make the fiery, impulsive Eva his wife, despite her delectable mouth and alluring innocence. He knows from experience that nothing is forever, not even love. But honor demands he do right by the lady, no matter how stubbornly Eva tries to hold on to her independence. And while the road to the Scottish border is beset with danger, Godric’s greatest challenge is to keep his hands—and his heart—from his captivating bride-to-be…
I have to admit that I was a little confused by the pairing of these two characters when I read the summary of the book, but I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I loved these two characters both individually and together! In this book, readers get a little more insight as to why Godric acted the way he did in Notorious and the reason for Eva’s “unladylike” confidence and fire. These two characters complement each other perfectly and their coupling is so enjoyable to read about.
I also loved how there was a bit of action and adventure to this plot! While I appreciated the steamy scenes included in the story, the thrilling kidnappings and disasters that occur in this book add a little bit of suspense to the plot. With everything going on in this book, readers will be eagerly flipping the pages to see what will happen next!
Overall, I adored this book and cannot wait for the third book of this series to come out later this year! If you haven’t read one of Spencer’s books then I sincerely hope you change that soon!
