Unravelling her secrets…

The exquisite designs of mysterious dressmaker Madame Belle are the most sought after in the ton, yet only a few are trusted with Belle’s deepest secret – her name.

Lady Belinda Howells has gone to great lengths to disguise her identity, it’s the only way to protect herself from the ruthless demands of her wicked father…and to protect her heart.

Until Lord Phillip Macpherson walks into her salon and his scorching kiss burns a memory onto her lips that she’ll never be able to forget!

Now it’s only a matter of time before the notorious rake unveils the truth, and when he does, Belle knows that she won’t be able to resist… -Goodreads


I’m going to preface this review with I was not impressed by this romance. While I later realized that the novel is published in London, I felt that the author was trying to hard to sound british. That was just me being ignorant of the publisher. Besides the vocabulary used, just the way the story was written turned me away. The plot was a bit flat and undramatic. There definitely could have been more conflict and action. There were even times when I had to reread passages just to figure out if the author was keeping track of where she placed her characters’ limbs. While lately I’ve had pretty good luck with ARCs, this one was disappointing. I give it two stars, for me actually being able to finish it, and one wavering flame because the intimate scenes were not very romantic or involved.
