#78 (#14) - Lord Perfect ~ Loretta Chase
It was so nice to read another Loretta Chase work ........... sheer genius ............ I love her style.
Although I have only read two others before, both of which were stories of this hero's brothers.
This time it was the turn of the "Perfect" (and so different from his brothers) Lord Benedict Carsington, heir to the Earl of Hargate and beautiful widow Bathsheba Wingate.
Bathsheba is determined to provide a worthy upbringing for her daughter, but the hoyden Olivia has other ideas.
Bathsheba's first meeting with Benedict is at the British Museum where Olivia lays about his young Nephew, Lord Lisle, with a sketchbook. Things go from bad to worse when the young pair then strike up a clandestine correspondence and run away to find the Disgraceful DeLecey family treasure.
It falls to Benedict and Bathsheba to bring them back without falling into the trap of their own utter attraction to one another, and causing a scandal ......... as if!!!
A wroth 5 ***** Star read as always with this author. I need more of her books, but sadly some of them are out of print and not available at the library, so fingers crossed I can track them down - I especially don't want to miss the stories of the other remaining brothers.
Happy reading - next on my list is a Julia Quinn ....... always a happy event.
