The Devil Takes a Bride (The Cabot Sisters Book 2)

The Devil Takes a Bride (The Cabot Sisters Book 2) by Julia London

Publishers Weekly calls the Cabot Sisters the free-spirited, well-intentioned and irrepressibly exuberant bad girls of high society! 
A plan born of desperation… 
Once the toast of society, Grace Cabot and her sisters now await the shame of losing high status and fine luxuries upon the death of the Earl of Beckington. The dire circumstances are inevitable unless, of course, Grace's wicked plot to seduce a wealthy viscount into marriage goes off without a single hitch. But once a stolen embrace with the wrong man leads her to be discovered in the arms of Jeffrey, the Earl of Merryton, her plan takes a most unexpected—and scorching—twist. 
…and altered by passion 
Governed by routine and ruled by duty, Jeffrey had no desire for a wife before he succumbed to Grace's temptation. Though his golden-haired, in-name-only bride is the definition of disorder, he can't resist wanting her in every way. But once her secrets meet his, society might consider their lives to be ruined beyond repair…while Jeffrey might just see it as a new beginning.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow movingMay 22, 2015
This review is from: The Devil Takes a Bride (The Cabot Sisters Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
I love Historical romances. But for me, this book fell flat. I thought it was too drawn out. Now, normally I'm a huge fan of this author. So for me, it was shocking that I just couldn't get into this story like I normally do the others of hers. I don't mind a long book, but when it's overly repetitive on things, or too slow moving, I lose my interest.
The saving grace on this book was how sexy it was! It was overly sexy for a historical romance and I rather enjoyed it! It was risky, it was sexy. I think trimmed down, this would have been a 5 star read.
