    Inhaltsangabe

    Growing up with four unruly brothers has made Freyja Bedwyn far bolder than most society ladies. From feisty manner to long, tumbling hair, Lady Freyja is pure fire - a woman who seeks both adventure and freedom.

    Adventure soon finds her on a visit to Bath, when a handsome stranger bursts into Freyja's room and entreats her to hide him. His name is Joshua Moore, Marquess of Hallmere, a man with a hell-raising reputation of his own who is quickly intrigued by the independent beauty. So intrigued, in fact, that he makes her a surprising request: to pose as his fiancée and help thwart his family's matchmaking schemes.

    For two people determined to be free, it's the perfect plan, until passion blindsides them both. For as Joshua sets out to achieve his complete seduction of Freyja, a woman who has sworn off love is in danger of losing the one thing she never expected to give again: her heart.

    Great writing and performance!

    I must say that I was very torn about the story rating this time. Usually it’s a clear 5 star for me but this time there was something about the story which to be did not match the character and since I love Freya especially I did feel conflicted about that. Spoiler altert below.

    Freya and all of her family are very honor bond, duty orientated and have a Avery straight forward moral compass. They are good people with flaws but essentially they know right from wrong and good from bad and they own up to their shortcoming and expect the same of others. So even though it was cleared up at the end that Joshua did not have an illegitimate child with the governess and even before that I think the reader knows it to not be true, the characters in the book are made to believe that it is true and while they may not have believed it either there was not really any further consideration of the fact that Freya, who was looking for thing to hate about Joshua, and the Duke who’s sense of family and honor is probably the highest of all, heard that rumor and did not at all engage with it. I was trying to put it aside by thinking that times back then were different and this wasn’t very unusual but at the same time I feel that in order to be true to the Bedwyn characters this should have upset them, it should have eaten at Freya way before she was introduced to the woman, it should have been a confrontation way before the truth came out on its own, she should have thought twice and doubted Joshua’s good heart and loyalty and family honor. I just feel like Freyas character came short in this aspect and it had gnawed at my mind through the whole story which is why I did only rate 4 stars.
