A Reader's Opinion: BRETTE by Collette Cameron


THE BOOK

 

A READER'S OPINION

Good book . . . Brette: Intensions Gone Astray was fun to read! It's the second love story of Collette Cameron's Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper series. BRETTE is one of the many books I've read by this talented author, and while I liked it, I didn't love it. The story was interesting enough, but it didn't grab my attention right away. The chemistry between Alexander and Brette makes them perfect for each other! These charming characters were lively and likeable. The heroine, Brette, loves the social lifestyle though she prefers the quietness of the countryside. What can happen when a handsome rogue named Alexander turns rector? Both their worlds will collide and send sparks all over. Lots of twists and turns to finally end on an happy note; quite predictable. Overall, this is an enjoyable read. However I found that something was missing. I really preferred her first story Wagers Gone Awry! I recommend that you take a chance to read Brette’s story if you love Regency romance!

BOOK SYNOPSIS

He thought his adventures were over... A rogue reluctantly turned rector, Alexander Hawksworth, prefers soirées to sermons and parties to prayers. Though impoverished, he seizes every opportunity to escape parish duties, preferring to hob nob with London’s finest–especially after the precocious and petite Brette Culpepper arrives in Town. Alex secretly fantasizing about claiming the breathtaking beauty as his very own, and when he unexpectedly inherits an earldom, he’s determined to make her his countess... Until he’s accused of murdering the previous earl. Then she burst headlong into his life... New to Society, Brette adores the whirlwind social scene, the stream of invitations... the slightly-sensual verbal sparring with the devilishly attractive, much too witty, and oh so unsuitable Mr. Hawksworth. But her fairytale existence crashes to a halt when rumors circulate she’s a peer’s illegitimate granddaughter. Even though he’s left her a tidy inheritance, formerly hospitable doors slam in her face as a newly appointed guardian emerges, intent on stealing her wealth and forcing her to wed an elderly despot. Time is against them as Alex struggles to clear his name and deliver the woman he loves from an unthinkable fate.
