Gregory and Nicole
After two years of “proper” courting, the chaos created by Lady L and her gang of thieves has caused a rift between Ravencourt and Nicole Worthington. Before they are able to resolve their issues, they are kidnapped. It seems Lady L is at it again. They are being held as bait. Exactly what does Lady L want? The one positive in Gregory and Nicole’s captivity is that they get the chance to talk and clear the air. They also get to know each other quite intimately. Gregory and Nicole’s story is filled with danger, suspense, secrets revealed, kidnapping, escape, a chaotic romance, and a happy ending. Unfortunately, Lady L and her cohorts are still on the loose. The second story in the Fate of the Worthingtons series is a well-written page turner with great characters, some you love and some you hate. I am enjoying this series and can’t wait to see what happens next. I received an ARC of this book via BookSprout, and am voluntarily reviewing it.
