“The Unlikely Lady” by Valerie BowmanBook 3 of the Playful Brides Series
Release Date: May 5th, 2015
This was the first book I had read in the Playful Brides Series. It is book 3 of the series and now that I’ve read this one I’ll be sure to read the other two. I love what Valerie has done with a most unlikely heroine who is bookish and a hero because of his reputation no one would suspect would be attracted to her. Synopsis: FOR THE BACHELOR AND THE BLUESTOCKING… Certain that no man wants a bluestocking for a wife, Miss Jane Lowndes is careful to wield her books and her spectacles as weapons against matrimony. Convincing her ambitious mama that she’s content to stay a spinster is easier said than done, however. It’s a good thing Jane is not above a bit of manufactured scandal if it will keep her from the altar, and the argumentative, contrary Lord Garrett Upton… ROMANCE IS NEVER BY THE BOOK With the war over, Garrett is determined to enjoy his bachelor’s life while he can, even when it means attending a house party in celebration of a friend’s wedding—and suffering Jane’s notorious disdain. But when a masquerade ball leads to a mistaken kiss, he’s surprised to learn that Jane’s bookish exterior hides a truly passionate soul. When two such headstrong people are determined to remain unattached, can love lead to a happy ending?
This one is Valerie Bowman at her best!!
This book is a must read for all Regency Romance fans. It stands up on it’s own even though it is the third book of the series. I do suggest that you read the entire series, but if like me you haven’t read the first two don’t let that stop you from reading this one.
Thank you again to Valerie Bowman for allowing me to read and review her new book. I received an ARC of this book from Valerie Bowman through NetGalley so I could leave an honest review.
