Historical romance /own
Not exactly my favorite Dare book. I did finish because it was easy and light, but, yes I felt no romance. It was more like bam wham thank you mam. They fancied each other and got dirty. And they had disliked each other the day before. AND they only spent this week together. I just want a bit of romance you know.
Minerva liked rocks. Colin could not sleep without a good fu*k. She was the would be spinster. He needed to marry. Sure I could see them together at the end, but that might have been the smexy chemistry between them.
I did like him making up stories about who they were while travelling, but I could have gone for a bit more actual romance to make me feel something.
Minerva Highwood, one of Spindle Cove's confirmed spinsters, needs to be in Scotland.
Colin Sandhurst, Lord Payne, a rake of the first order, needs to be... anywhere but Spindle Cove.
These unlikely partners have one week to
• fake an elopement
• convince family and friends they're in "love"
• outrun armed robbers
• survive their worst nightmares
• travel four hundred miles without killing each other
All while sharing a very small carriage by day and an even smaller bed by night.
What they don't have time for is their growing attraction. Much less wild passion. And heaven forbid they spend precious hours baring their hearts and souls.
Suddenly one week seems like exactly enough time to find a world of trouble. And maybe... just maybe... love.
