A giant thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with an ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review.
Guess what I love almost as much as chocolate? An exquisitely written regency romance. Lord Shallow was an amazing reading experience. It was a start it at 10 PM, wait, it’s 2 AM and I’m still reading experience. Because I could not put it down until I finished.
What I loved – literally everything.
1. The character development was robust, multi-faceted and poignant. Both Sebastian and Gwynna evolve in ways they never expected – bringing out each other’s strengths and supporting each other’s weaknesses.
2. The hero was conflicted and courageous. He slays dragons, empowers the heroine’s independence and offers her validation and a soft place to land. And he is eminently swoon-worthy.
3. The heroine is no milksop miss. She is strong and brave and resilient in her own right. She saves him too – from a half-life of duty and obligation.
I am buying every single book I can find by this author.
