This is my first ever blog tour and it’s hosted by the brilliant Jenny in Neverland.
Experience has taught Emily Shaw that men are best avoided, so she’s determined to take her place in society alone and unrestrained by marriage. Renting a room in the heart of London, she establishes a Women’s League to promote equality between the sexes and teach women to be independent.
Jasper St David isn’t looking for distractions, but he’s fascinated by beautiful, fiercely opinionated Emily when she moves into the office above his. And when he learns of her determination never to succumb to male charms, he can’t help but see it as a challenge! After all, Jasper’s always found nothing more tantalising than the thrill of the chase…
This book was brilliant. Each character, whether secondary or main felt important to the plot, the setting was incredibly detailed and luxurious. Emily wasn’t seen as a meek, mild mannered woman, but was as equally strong and fiery as Jasper.
My only criticism is that I wish it was longer!
But overall, Bryant created a rich tapestry of a story, intricately woven with each line in the novel and made a superb historical romance novel .
Rating: 4.5 stars.
