USA Today Bestselling Author Vivienne Lorret launches a charming new trilogy about three debutantes who get more than they bargained for when it comes to the mating habits of scoundrels…
Heiress Winnifred Humphries refuses to marry the odious man her parents have chosen. She’ll marry for love or not at all. But how does a woman know a man truly loves her? Needing answers, she sets out to discover the marriage habits of London’s aristocrats. Yet when her friends kidnap a lord for research, Winn knows they’ve gone too far. Now she’s facing a wickedly handsome scoundrel who wants revenge.
Lord Asher Holt has the perfect plan to free himself of his father’s debts. But when a trio of foolish debutantes abducts him, their scheme ruins everything! Fuming and tied to a chair, Holt overhears that one of them is an heiress. Perhaps he isn’t above a little kidnapping either.
Yet, when the heiress runs away from her own wedding and straight into his waiting carriage, Holt finds himself on an adventure he’ll never forget, falling in love with a woman worth more than any treasure. But will Winn ever believe his heart only desires her… and not her fortune?
Lord Holt Takes a Bride by Vivienne Lorret is a sweet heartfelt historical that swept me off my feet. I found myself wanting to know more about the featured couple, Lord Holt and the heiress, Winn. Winn is an innocent woman who says things that make are charming, straight to the point, and innocent. Then there’s Asher, aka Lord Holt, who is bold, experienced, and hurt by the world just as much as Winn is. I loved how he wanted to rip her gowns off but also, treated her with the most respect. It was a tug of war for him to control his feelings.
The more they were together, the more they fell in love with each other. Winn is warned about unhappy marriage to titled man who doesn’t love her. So, she decides to run away. Asher helps her on her journey to get home to her aunt safely. But while on the run, Asher’s evil father will stop at nothing to gain all the money Asher may have.
Bullets to scammers, Asher and Winn have their hands full of adventure and action. The story was fast-paced and entertaining. I loved every moment with this group of characters. The parents of Winn also had a tiny journey of their own to make. Overall, it was full of hot moments, humor, love, and forgiveness.
