This was my Mommy Book Club read for this month. Apparently, we’ve got some historical romance lovers in that group, and it’s making me appreciate the subgenre more.
Having read a few historicals lately, I’ve gotten used to some quirks of the genre. For one, the heroine is almost always a forward-thinking woman trying to change the expectations of female society. It was a refreshing change of pace that in Heiress Gone Wild the heroine actually wants a traditional life. She’s probably not going to get one, but it’s nice that she wants it.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s hard for me to quantify why exactly. It’s just one of those books that’s a really fun read. The heroine is sassy, and the hero wants to be mad about it, but is actually charmed. No one gets what they think they want, and they’re sort of mad about it, but not really. If you’re looking for a great read, this one’s for you.
