Passion to last a lifetime...

The Sweetest Scandal

Beautiful, exuberant, and stubborn Georgiana Black has more spirit than sense—which she learns when an ultimatum to the Earl of Beckenham ends their engagement. Six years later, Georgie is less concerned with impending spinsterhood than with making sure her young sister doesn't make the same mistakes she did. But soon Georgie stumbles into a scandalous encounter with none other than her former fiancé. Beckenham is still breathtakingly desirable.

The Truest Temptation

Beckenham's brief engagement to Georgie taught him one thing: when it comes to a wife, he wants a woman who will do her duty and cause no trouble. When the fiery Georgie falls unexpectedly into his arms, Beckenham remembers just how lushly delectable she is. Suddenly, the idea of actually marrying Georgie is irresistible. In a battle of wills, can passion conquer pride?

My Thoughts

I love a great historical romance, and seeing as Christina Brooke is a friend to, and has been compared to one of my favourite historical romance writers, Anna Campbell, I just had to give The Greatest Lover Ever a read.

The title did lead me to believe the book may have been a little more raunchy than it actually was, and admittedly, I did find that a little disappointing. However, there was plenty of great dialogue and sexual tension between Beckenham and Georgie to make up for it.

A cleverly thought out plot, with twists and turns to keep you on your toes, The Greatest Lover Ever is a really engrossing story. I read it in one sitting and found it to be very entertaining.

Although a little less risqué than I usually like my historical romances, I look forward to reading more stories in The Westruthers series.

The Best Lover Ever is a fun and flirty 4 star read.
