I had the wonderful pleasure of reading The Seduction of Lady Phoebe pre-release. Ella Quinn is a new author that writes with beautiful detail. Below is my review for The Seduction of Lady Phoebe.
Lady Phoebe Stanhope is a spirited young lady that uses her quick wit and not so lady like behaviors (sword play, shooting a pistol riding astride) to protect herself. She is from a big family that encourages her independence by not forcing her to make a match unless her heart is in it. Phoebe keeps the walls to her heart guarded due to a lack of judgement she made when she was younger; where a young man accosted her making her take physical action against him. She still questions her judgement and will not take a risk where a man is concerned unless her heart tells her he’s the one.
Lord Marcus Finley wishes he could go back to the moment eight years ago where he frighten a young Lady Phoebe. He has spent the past eight years away from England in the West Indies, growing into a respectable man that Phoebe would want one day. He is strong, handsome, forward thinking and wants to do right by his family, especially Lady Phoebe. He has loved Lady Phoebe all these years and intends to win her respect if she’ll let him.
Lady Phoebe is of age where she must marry. She is soon to be on the shelf, but she refuses to marry unless her heart tells her the man in question is the one. Shockingly, when she realizes that man is no other than the man that frighten her eight years ago; she has a hard time accepting it. Lord Marcus will do anything to show Phoebe he has change and has loved her all these years. Can Phoebe trust Marcus to believe he really does love her and this is not a game? Will she trust her heart? Will Marcus be able to protect Phoebe from harm as a Lord from his past tries to punish her for something Marcus did years ago?
Ella Quinn’s write description beautifully. While reading I could see everything so vividly in my mind. She writes Regency so well. You feel you are in the ball room or in the drawing room with the family. Speaking of family, readers, you know how I am fan of fun family dynamics. This story has a lot of family dynamic between Phoebe’s family and Marcus’. The banter and closeness is there and you feel you are part of the big family. I enjoyed reading about Phoebe and Marcus.
Thank you Ella, for allowing me to read and review The Seduction of Lady Phoebe pre-released.
