LISA'S REVIEW: I Adored A Lord (Katharine Ashe)

I Adored a Lord (The Prince Catchers #2)

by Katharine Ashe

Three very different sisters beguile society with their beauty and charm, but only one of them must fulfill a prophecy: marry a prince. Who is the mystery Prince Charming, and which sister will be his bride?

All that clever, passionate Ravenna Caulfield wants is to stay far away from high society's mean girls.

All that handsome, heroic Lord Vitor Courtenay wants is to dash from dangerous adventure to adventure.

Now, snowbound in a castle with a bevy of the ton's scheming maidens all competing for a prince's hand in marriage, Ravenna's worst nightmare has come true.

Now, playing babysitter to his spoiled prince of a half-brother and potential brides, Vitor is champing at the bit to be gone.

When a stolen kiss in a stable leads to a corpse in a suit of armor, a canine kidnapping, and any number of scandalous liaisons, Ravenna and Vitor find themselves wrapped in a mystery they're perfectly paired to solve. But as for the mysteries of love and sex, Vitor's not about to let Ravenna escape until he's gotten what he desires . . .


What a fun historical! I really enjoyed reading this book. Ravenna is one of my favorite characters of this year! Such a beautifully written romance with twist and turns to leave you on edge and guessing. I had fun reading this. It was not just a book to be lost in, it was also a good time. Vitor is something else and the chemistry between him and Ravenna is beautiful. I have never read Ashe's work in the past, but after reading this, I will be picking up every book of hers I find. This was great. The perfect historical romance to read this summer! Full of mystery and romance, a few laughs and more, this is a read for all romance lovers!
