Lucy Waltham needs to stop Toby’s proposal but she needed to practice seducing him. She immediately turned to her brothers best friend Jeremy. She only wanted to practice but it turned to much more where she was starting to feel things for Jeremy even though they were polar opposites.
Jeremy Trescott, Earl of Kendall was at his friends house on holiday. He never expected his friends sister to start kissing him in his bedroom. Jeremy pushed her away but now her lips were sketched into his brain and he only wanted more. He wanted Lucy to feel things for him and not Toby.
I am new to Tessa Dare and I wanted to try out the series Spindle Cove but none were available, so I went for another book from the series Toby and Isabel Trilogy, Goddess of the Hunt. I have to say I thought this was a great intro to how Dare writes and draws you into the book. She has a way with the words she uses and how she creates her characters. I was drawn quickly into the book wanting to know how Lucy’s plan of seduction would obviously fail when it comes to Toby but succeeds with the unlikely Jeremy. I thought there was humor between Lucy and Jeremy when it came down to the banter between them but it quickly sizzled with every look Jeremy sent towards Lucy. I loved how awkward but yet bold Lucy became in the book and how Jeremy was cold to most people but turned on the heat when he put his sights on Lucy.
The rest of the characters Dare gives you insight on how they act especially as Toby and Sophia’s story will continue with the other two books of the series. Now with Toby I liked his character but I was annoyed as he was a little too selfish and that he was aware he was hurting Lucy’s feelings. Things will all work out well with the exception at the very end with the little surprise which will continue to the second book in Sophia’s story. I was left intrigued and looking forward to continuing this series.
