The Bachelor
New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries features an irresistible family in a series to savor, as the grown children of a thrice-married dowager duchess piece together the stories of their fathers--while pursuing passions of their own . . . Lady Gwyn Drake has long protected her family's reputation by hiding an imprudent affair from her youth. But when her former suitor appears at Armitage Hall, manhandling the heiress and threatening to go public with…

Welcome back everyone, I’ve been looking forward to reading today’s book since like, July last year. Since its release date is next week, I thought this would be a great way to break up all those tours for you!

I read the first book in the series, Project Duchess, in July 2019 and stumbled across the sequel on NetGalley available for request. Obviously, I asked for it and, luckily, was approved! YAY!

Given the time this series is set in I was a little confused as to why the cover art had the heroine holding a bow and arrow. After finishing the book, I can now see the clever use of one tiny part of the story to create that image. Genius!

Since it’s been ages since I read the first book, I struggled to remember what had happened to understand what some of the references were to. After a little bit I managed to remember the gist and remembered more as more bits and pieces were hinted at. I recommend re-reading the first book if you’re wanting to read this one to refresh your memory. Especially because this book continues some key aspects from that book.

Like with Project Duchess I found myself wrapped up in both the action and the romance. It felt like the pace alternated from slow, methodical and filled with anticipation to fast and suspense driven. Normally I’m not a fan of this, yet it worked really well to keep the story moving at a good pace without dragging on too much while still giving us the details we needed to truly enjoy the story.

Some of the emotional issues Sabrina raises between Gwyn and Joshua truly surprised me. Some of them I could understand, while others confused me. Given the age I don’t understand why one of them thought something was so uncommon. I thought people of that time spoke about those things more openly than we have tended to in the past 100 years or so. I’m struggling to explain this without ruining that little tid-bit. And I really don’t want to spoil that for you, coz it’s a pretty major part of the story.

With the way the story ended I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next instalment. Fingers cross I won’t have to wait TOO long for it since it’s scheduled for release in August.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review; on Wednesday I’ll be reviewing Erotic Fiction? by Hannah Lynn.

Bleddyn Hall definitely doesn’t follow the typical regency romance theme. Yes, it has a girl who doesn’t want to marry for money or social standing. BUT Isabel is a very typical regency age woman. She strictly believes in polite society, social norms and is against anything that might be looked upon as “improper”. And somehow she ends up involved in a murder mystery… Click to read my review to see how I felt experiencing my first murder mystery!

A beautiful historical romance that is historically accurate. Includes famous French salons, revolutionary writings, corrupt officials and a true romantic love story with it’s happily ever after ending. Read to find out what I really thought of this politically charged love story.
