Stubborn Heroine Warning!
Lucy, I'm home! Lucy is the heroine of Goddess of the Hunt by Tessa Dare. And for those of you who don't like stubborn heroines, this book may just get on your nerves. However, if you can get past that you won't want to miss the emergence of another gifted writer. This is the beginning of a trilogy: Surrender of a Siren, in August and A Lady of Persuasion, follows in September.
This is one where the heroine has always been infatuated with her boyhood friend Toby, Toby is interested in Sophia and Jeremy is in lust with Lucy. There are a few funny moments and a few embarrassing moments and times when if Lucy had been a little less stubborn, certain things wouldn't have happened. Anyway, after a few mix-ups Lucy and Jeremy marry and the story does a slight change, because it is at this point that Lucy grows up. You are either going to hate Lucy or like her. The attractions between Lucy and Jeremy is great, though they both struggle with it, but this is a romance book after all and those two should have given up the struggle long before they did. In the end these two characters complement each other.
I loved all of the secondary characters and thought Sophia was funny. Incidentally Lucy wants to hate Sophia because she's everything Lucy isn't, but they become friends. And, I enjoyed that part of the story. There is also a very hot wardrobe scene.
I am looking forward to the next one, which is Sophia's story.
