A Sinful Deception: A Breconridge Brothers Novel (The Breconridge Brothers Book 2)

A Sinful Deception: A Breconridge Brothers Novel (The Breconridge Brothers Book 2) by Isabella Bradford

For fans of Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Sabrina Jeffries: the seductively charming second historical romance in Isabella Bradford’s Breconridge Brothers trilogy.

Lord Geoffrey Fitzroy leads a charmed existence. As the second son of the Duke of Breconridge, he has none of the responsibilities of his older brother and all of the advantages, leaving handsome Geoffrey free to enjoy his rakish pursuits. And pursue them he does, leaving hearts fluttering all over London. But one night, at a ball brimming with high society’s most sought-after beauties, only one truly intrigues him: the regal, aloof, and mysterious Miss Serena Carew.

Magnificently dressed and wearing jewels befitting a queen, the lady is considered the prize of the season: a noble-born heiress raised in India. But even as Geoffrey’s fascination grows, Serena deflects his curiosity—and with good reason. Serena’s exotic past contains a perilous secret that could destroy her. Yet her plan to live in safe solitude is thwarted by her hungry heart, and soon Geoffrey’s passionate seduction finds her blissfully bedded—and wed. Will her deception destroy her chance at happiness as Geoffrey’s wife? Or will the devotion of her new husband bring out the hidden truth of her undying love?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.*
At the beginning, I suppose I got confused. What they meant by Champion, or how it meant something to them, had me baffled. I suppose it was a way for them to flirt, but there was so much emphasis on it, but too much.

This was a powerful story.. except that it dragged on. I feel that the story could have unfolded so much quicker than it did, that at points, I found myself putting this book down, because I was bored. This is a decent Historical romance though. I liked Serena's character. The past she came from certainly shows what a survivor she was. Geoffery's loyalty was an impressing trait.

This was certainly a fresh plot I haven't read in a Historical before. It was fun, interesting and certainly made for a great read.
