Racing heart? Check. Damp palms? Check. All signs indicate I’ve got it bad for Lady Isabella Blankenship.
It could be contagious, since Iz shows all the same symptoms. But what’s got her pulling back anytime things blaze between us?
I know a modern-day duchess might have baggage from finding out she’s the illegitimate child of a dead American philanderer with more kids than morals. But Izzy’s on edge, and there’s more to it than run-of-the-mill culture shock.
Turns out I’m not the only guy drawn to her. She’s shadowed 24/7 by protective siblings, an amorous pig named Kevin, and a deadly-looking stranger skulking around Ponderosa Resort. It’s more drama than I’ve seen since my days as an Army doc, so I’m happy to lend Iz a shoulder or any body part she needs.
But what are my odds of diagnosing what ails Izzy before my royal crush makes a run for it?
The Pig Steals the Show
I loved the concept and the story. I felt it was wordy at times. And of course Kevin was my favorite character!
Too many secrets
As the final Bracelyn sibling to get a story, this one was explosive (literally and figuratively). The big bang was not expected.
Izzy is such a sweet girl that needed a kidney and was able to get one from one of her half brothers. Now, a year later, she is dealing with all of her medical stuff for maintaining her kidney's health, as well as duty to her family and her country. But she is falling in love with Doc Brad. Her secrets haunt her and prevent her from telling Brad what is really going on and why she can't give him what he wants.
Will she be allowed to marry for love, or forced to marry for duty to her family and title? Will Brad fight for her or give up when he learns all of her secrets. And who is Damien and why is he there? A mystery yet to be solved.
