The Bride Wore Pearls – Liz Carlyle.
First of all, I love the personal maid and valet in Rance & Anisha’s home. The poor valet to Rance – haha! What he needs to go through every morning! Love Anisha’s boys! Naughty little gremlins they are indeed! And Love Aisha’s parakeet! Rance is the ultimate bad boy in this series. Dishonorable past, lots of emotional baggage and a sword still haning over his head. He’s all but thrown caution to the wind and given up on what he wants and needs, just surviving from one day to the next, not caring about propper decorum. He has accepted the ton’s perception of him as a rogue womanizer and is living up to it with gusto. Even though he is a clear stay away, Anish refuses to do so. She is the only woman who brings forth Rance’s true self. He is charming, loyal honest and a true gentleman. LOVE Anisha's character too.
This book got to me big time. You read 20books and then there is one that mirrors you so closely you have a hard time reading it. Of the 3 men in this series I have read so far, I think its between Rance and Adrian. Looking forward to starting the last book, but a bit apprehensive about Royden Napier’s character. I must also mention that I did not like Besset at some points. There is just something about him I cant do but I think it might be the cover photo of him. Crazy right. The Bride by Moonlight here we go . . .
