The Luckiest Lady in London


Today's post is on The Luckiest Lady in London by Sherry Thomas. It is 276 pages long and is published by Berkley. It is the first in her London Trilogy. The cover has the main character on it in a lovely green dress facing the reader. The intended reader is someone who likes historical romance, flawed but likable characters, and romance. There is mild foul language, sexuality and no violence in this book.The story is told from the third person close of the two main characters. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- Felix Rivendale, the Marquess of Wrenworth, is The Ideal Gentleman, a man all men want to be and all women want to possess. Felix knows very well his golden image is a hoax. But no one else suspects the truth, until Miss Louisa Cantwell comes along.
From their first meeting, Louisa has mistrusted his outward perfection. But even she could not have imagined that The Ideal Gentleman would propose- to make her his mistress.

To make matters more complicated, Louisa cannot ignore the pleasure his touch ignites. Nor can she deny the pull Lord Wrenworth exerts upon her. But dare she get any closer to a man full of dark secrets, any one of which could devastate her?

Review- This is a funny and romantic story. Felix is very hard headed but I still liked him. Louisa is very innocent but she is not annoying. This book  is one long sex scene. Felix and Louisa are attracted to each other from the beginning and so they flirt and are very sensual in their banter. But of course when our hero realizes that he loves his wife, he loses his head. He pushes her away and she gets hurt but it does not last long. The real problem is that he lied to her about someone she wanted to marry because he was jealous and in love and did not know how to behave himself. In end they work it all out and I was pulling for them. I like it when a hero is helplessly in love with this heroine.

I give this book a Four out of Five stars. I was given nothing for this review and I borrowed this book from my local library.
