SPINSTER SISTER by Elise Marion - A Reader's Opinion


A Reader's Opinion

Oh, wow! What a fun and refreshing adventure!

I adored Spinster Sister by Elise Marion. I devoured this book, and I will surely follow her and the rest of this series. It’s a fast-paced romance with twists and turns.

I love reading stories about beautiful women with roundness who accept themselves and love the way they are. I liked that Helena, the heroine, wasn’t insecure about her weight at all and the hero Sebastian loved her dearly. I'm so happy the author decided to touch on this delicate subject. This is a beautiful debut for her new Lawless Ladies series.

Spinster Sister tells the story of five women who are desperately in need of money for their families, and decide to concoct a scheme and become masked highway women. They learn to shoot guns and rob carriages by moonlight. With only these clues to start, this fun adventure is a real page-turner, and has some really cute scenes. I could not put it down! Sebastian is a sweet gentleman and wants a special lady to become his wife. However, when they meet, they have a rocky start when Helena finds Sebastian to be arrogant . . . but he falls for her. Will her secret actions ruin her chance for a bright future with him? Will he understand why she did it? Will he lose her forever? Is their love strong enough to survive her secret past? Find out in Spinster Sister.


Spinster Sister

Lawless Ladies, Book 1

He never thought to wed for love. He never anticipated her.

Welcome to book 1 in the new and exciting series from bestselling author Elise Marion.

Helena Montgomery is left to care for her siblings after the deaths of her parents. Buried under a pile of debt, she has no choice but to join her friends in a dangerous scheme. Moonlighting as a masked highwayman is a sure way to end up facing the hangman, but there is nothing Helena wouldn’t do for those she loves. Besides, she only intends to continue her illegal activities until her sister’s first season yields an advantageous marriage.

Lord Sebastian Radcliffe doesn’t want a wife, but must select one to secure his family legacy. The young, beautiful Harriett Montgomery seems like the perfect choice—yet Sebastian finds himself drawn instead to her elder sister. He never expected to marry for love, yet the vivacious Helena quickly burrows her way past his stony façade and straight into his heart.

He thinks her a high-handed shrew; she thinks him a self-righteous bore. Yet, passion kindles between this unlikely pair, leaving them hopeful that the futures they once thought impossible might be within reach. However, the damaging secret of Helena’s crimes hangs over her head, forcing her to keep Sebastian at arm’s length. Despite her best efforts, she is unable to deny the depth of her feelings.
