Claire Banning was on her way home when her carriage was stopped and she was grabbed. Claire fought hard to get away only to be taken by a different man. She is thrust onto a ship and finds they think her to be spy.
Hugh Battancourt grabbed the woman he thought was a french spy but as he spends time with this woman he is not so sure. Soon he will believe her and let her go but he knows that he will be seeing her soon.
Irresistible is the second book to Banning Sisters series from Karen Robards. I loved this book. It was definitely romance but not an easy one where nothing bad happens. There was more mystery and a lot of adventure that flowed through the book, which I loved reading.
Claire was the beautiful one of the sisters but probably at this point the most miserable one of the sisters. She didn’t love her husband and was now kidnapped. I liked that she didn’t give up and kept trying her best to tell them that they were not the woman they were looking for. Hugh was a mystery. He was a spy for one thing and took his job very seriously. He was hard but had a sense of humor and a seductive way about him that made Claire melt eventually. The spying played more into the story than the first one and it was well done. Chemistry was also really well done by Robards. It was steamy between them once they were through with the kidnapping but it was not instant as they were both strong characters and did not give up easily.
I was not sure how this book was going to continue when Hugh was to be out of her life but there is a twist with who Hugh really is which was well done. I wasn’t sure if there was going to be a happy ending with the two since Claire was married but there will be once again a twist that will give Claire and Hugh a happy ending.
Now the villain in the book would have to be the person who was attempting to kidnap Claire in the first place or it is really the person who ordered the men to kidnap her. I was surprised by the villain but Robards explains why they were doing this to Claire.
Beth’s story is next and I can’t wait to read how her story will go.
