I read this review for the Compromising Willa Blog Tour.
I chose to read this book because it's set in England back in 1805 and, during my experiment with romance novels, I've found that sci-fi stories and historical fiction stories that include a romance are much more enjoyable to me than just a plain old romance.
I actually really liked this book, a lot more than I had originally expected to like it. I liked that Grey Preston (Duke of Hartwell) really wanted to be marry Lady Wilhelmina Stanhope despite her past with Augustus Manning (Earl of Bellingham), that he stood up for her and defended her, even though he sometimes allowed his jealousy to get the better of him. Sometimes Hart's attitude made me want to punch him in the face and sometimes Willa was just TOO head-strong, but that is sometimes how people are in life. I did like how it ended, though at one point I couldn't imagine it ending the way that it did.
Note: I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
