“You can’t help but fall in love with Lynsay Sands!”
New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands takes romance fans on The Husband Hunt. Bestselling author Suzanne Enoch, declares that, “Lynsay Sands hits all the right notes,” and any reader who has ever been touched by the unique Sands romantic magic—be it her delectable Argeneau family vampire novels, her Scottish highlands-set historicals, her marvelous Medieval love stories, or her delightful Regency Era romps—would no doubt enthusiastically agree. The Husband Hunt is a wild and captivating ride, as a rakish lord with no interest in marriage must fight his growing attraction for the enormously popular, exquisite beauty he ignored years earlier when she was merely a bright-eyed, infatuated child.
The feisty Madison sisters from The Heiress are back in this amusing and sentimental Regency. Lisa Madison adores her neighbor Robert, Lord Langley, but when he informs her she's "like a little sister to me" and appears oblivious to the charms revealed by her transparent gown, she decides it's time to have a proper London season and find a man who will appreciate her. An intriguing mix of stubbornness, plotting, and na vet , Lisa charms her admirers easily and forces Robert to reconsider what he is giving up. Sisters Christiana and Suzette are as loyal as ever, and their husbands are more than willing to help with the matchmaking. The thinly veiled mystery is quite obvious to anyone who's read Suzette's story, but Robert is a dashing hero, and his efforts to work through his demons and preconceived ideas about marriage give this romance plenty of tender moments.
The story pulls you in from Chapter 1. I love all Lynsay Sands novels and enjoyed this one just as much.
The Husband Hunt
This book started out GREAT! But, then it got so predictable. It just had so much more potential, I was able to figure the villain right away. I still enjoyed it.
The Husband Hunt
I was very disappointed with my first introduction to Lynsay Sands. The plot and course of events were so utterly unbelievable that I couldn't stomach the book. It seemed a cheap imitation of other, well known Regency authors such as Eloisa James or Julia Quinn. The heroine is drugged and abducted to a brothel; but instead of being afraid, relieved or even just confused, she enjoys sitting on the lap of her rescuer, questioning him about the hard, lumpy thing in his pants! The language in the book also fluctuates between authentic time period English, modern day English and for some bizarre reason some of the dialogue sounds like it is straight out of a Western! Throughout the story the characters fail to exemplify expected Regency Era behavior and speech, leaving this historical romance lover wishing she had not spent money on such an insulting read.
