Love Once Lost by Cara Maxwell
The Hesitant Husbands, Book #2
There are two things I really like about this book in particular.
First, it’s set primarily in Paris which is an exotic locale by most Regency romance book standards. It’s fun to see a hero and heroine somewhere other than England, especially other than London during the season.
Second, I liked that one of the premises of the book is that the heroine wanted to experience the world and travel before she got married… which was unacceptable to her semi-alphahole hero. There is also a cute Mr. and Mrs. Smith kind of interplay going on between Meera and Christopher. A previous reviewer complained that “Meena” (it’s Meera) was an annoying character, but I found the opposite to be true. She’s intelligent and refuses to let Christopher talk down to her or put her in her place, which is exactly how I’d hope a heroine would be. Looking forward to the next book in this series!
