Today is release day for author Julie Johnstone's newest book: My Seductive Innocent, A Once Upon A Rogue Novel Book 2. I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy before today in exchange for an honest review.
Miss Sophia Vane, a hoyden of the first order, makes an unlikely match when she weds Nathaniel Ellison, the rich and wary Duke of Scarsdale. What starts with an unexpected friendship soon blooms into a fiery passion. But a betrayal plunges Sophia into the thorny world of London Society and entangles her in a labyrinth of manipulation and jealousy that will test the strength of her marriage. Behind her husband’s sudden icy facade, Sophia believes dwells the caring, passionate man she loves. To break through the barriers and reclaim their happiness, they must do more than simply cast away their pride. They must fight for their very lives.
Wow! This book was amazing! The excitement begins at the beginning of Chapter two, and it makes it really hard to put the book down.
The Duke of Scarsdale, Nathanial Ellison, has no plans to marry for love. His past haunts him and he wants nothing more to live his life alone. However, a chance meeting with Sophia causes him to rethink his life plan. She and her younger half-brother, Harry, are in a very bad situation, and he cannot help but want to save her. She's unlike the women he usually meets in his social circle, and chooses to marry her to save her reputation.
But what happens after they get married? Of course, it's not a happily-ever-after right away. The excitement doesn't die down with their marriage. The book keeps you on your toes until the very end!
You can feel the passion between Nathan and Sophia early on, which isn't always the case with books like this. These two characters have a great banter and you can feel their sparks flying off the pages at you! I highly recommend this book. Although it's book two in her Once Upon A Rogue Series, don't let that stop you from picking this one up if you haven't read the first one. It can be read as a stand alone. (And then go back and check out the first book as well!)
