The Love Affair of an English Lord is the second novel in Jillian Hunter’s Boscastle series, and it tells the story of the wild and beautiful Chloe Boscastle. When Chloe is caught kissing a man in the park in London, she is sent out to her retired Uncle’s estate in the country. Her brother Grayson, the Marquess of Sedgecroft, believes that a sedate life in the countryside will steer her away from any scandalous temptations.
No one, not even Chloe herself, imagines that she’ll find the biggest scandal of all inside her own bedroom of her uncle’s home. It is in her bedroom where she finds, Dominic Breckland, the Viscount Stratfield, wounded and hiding in her lingerie closet. For all truths and purposes, Dominic is supposed to be dead, having been, according to polite society, murdered in his bed a few weeks past. Chloe knows the obstinate man bossing her around cannot be a ghost; only a real man can make her pulse race so erratically and have her thinking sexual thoughts no real lady should.
Dominic Breckland certainly does not like playing a dead man. He would much rather be spending his time openly with the alluring Chloe Boscastle, but first, he must discover who killed his brother and Chloe’s, the same person who failed at making him a dead man. If he can outwit death twice and keep Chloe safe from herself, he just may find the happy ending he never believed he could have.
This time around, Jillian Hunter is back with another wonderful novel - the breathtaking historical romance, The Love Affair of an English Lord. It is the much awaited sequel to the extraordinary The Seduction of an English Scoundrel. Reader, never fear if you missed The Seduction of an English Scoundrel; The Love Affair of an English Lord stands alone just splendidly on its own, thanks to Hunter’s crafty ability to toss in clever tidbits about characters from the previous novel who have significant roles in this story.
As always, Hunter creates a cast of winning characters who quickly charm the reading audience with their unique personalities. The dialogue is sharp and witty, and the enthralling plot sings its own song of seduction page by page.
