Let me tell you, after reading the previous book, Courting Trouble, I was so hoping that Raphael would get a story soon. We met him briefly but he had this quiet danger and that I was just itching to get more of.
While Mercy Goode is a twin, she’s one of a kind. At least in her time. She strong willed and passionate and doesn’t want or need a man to define her. She’s fascinated with crimes and solving them but she doesn’t realize that this current mission might just destroy everything she ever thought about herself.
Raphael was struck dumbfounded when he first caught the eye of Mercy Goode. There’s something about her that pulls him. And unfortunately that’s something he doesn’t have time for. He has a plan and it doesn’t include falling for this beautiful woman with a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
I would call this rivals to lovers most definitely. They both want the same thing and that pushes them together until they explode. From the moment these two stumble upon each other, in the beginning of the book, I couldn’t stop reading. You could feel the passion even through their arguments. I love these types of romances!
Kerrigan Byrne knows how to write love stories. Some that start out slow and some that are immediately burning. This was a bit of both. It was simmering underneath. While you could read this as a standalone, it’s so much better if you read the series in order. Heck, start with the Victorian Rebels and then to the Goode Girls. You’ll meet everyone and then become just as obsessed with Kerrigan’s work as I am.
