Hilarious females, alpha makes- good fun! He's so bored he can barely breathe, she lives precariously, keeping her vibrant personality under wraps. He sees her as a place holder until he sets up a new mistress. She wants no part of him, as she is finally repairing her reputation after wreaking vengance on a two timing fiancee.
I am loving the Boscastle series. I still have two more to read, but these brothers are great. And I love the heroines! They're all smart and brave, and not silly or dumb. I couldn't stand Thalia, but I think you were supposed to dislike her. She was a rude and selfish ward. Eloise is another great heroine who belonged with Drake. I have been wanting to read Drake's story for quite some time, and am so glad I finally got to enjoy it. Jillian Hunter is one of my favorite authors because she does not go slow. She doesn't use up three pages for details inbetween dialogue which creates a twelve page conversation. No, she goes right to the point, adding just enough descriptions for the way characters speak, and how they walk, without going on and on and on. It's realistic, and passionate. Oh, the love scenes. Always so steamy and invigorating! Cannot wait to read more!
