I really enjoyed Kristi’s debut novel, A Noble Masquerade, and was looking forward to reading Georgina’s story and this didn’t disappoint.
Lady Georgina Hawthorne has worked tirelessly to seal her place as the Incomparable for her debut season. At her first London ball, she hopes to snag the attention of an earl.
With money and business connections, but without impeccable bloodlines, Colin McCrae is invited everywhere but accepted nowhere. When he first encounters the fashionable Lady Georgina, he’s irritated by his attraction to a woman who concerns herself only with status and appearance.
What Colin doesn’t know is that Georgina’s desperate social aspirations are driven by the shameful secret she harbors. Association with Colin McCrae is not part of Georgina’s plan, but as their paths continue to cross, they both must decide if the realization of their dreams is worth the sacrifices they must make.
I love reading all types of stories and I love when there’s excellent and honestly developed characters. It makes following a story of two people so enjoyable. Hunter really shines with Georgina. If you read the first book, you’ll know she had much to strive for, but no worries, you don’t need to read the first book in order to understand that. Again, Hunter did a great job revealing that.
I loved Colin too! He was steadfast in who he was and his friendship with Georgina had me cracking up. There were some excellent one liners Georgina thought that made me chuckle quite a bit. I also enjoyed “seeing” the other family members (enough to be pleasant, but not take away from the main characters). I also have to say, if there’s anything to do with family and reconciliation, Jamie is going to cry. It can be a commercial of families reuniting and I’m done. So in a book? My heart loves those types of scenes!
I’m super excited the rest of the siblings will get their own books and I eagerly await what’s next!
What fictional family are you a fan of and kinda wish you were friends with?
