Proper young ladies of the ton-especially ones who have very small dowries-are not encouraged to have an interest in intellectual pursuits. Indeed, the only thing they are encouraged to pursue is an eligible bachelor.
Preferably one with both a title and a fortune.
So, the headstrong, opinionated Sloane sisters must keep their passions a secret.
Ah, but secret passions are wont to lead a lady into trouble . . .
The youngest of the Hellions of High Street, Caro Sloane has watched her two sisters have exhilarating encounters with dashing heroes, and now she is longing for some excitement of her own. After all, how can she write truly passionate poetry until she has experienced a Grand Adventure? But that seems unlikely to happen as she’ll be spending the next few weeks in the quiet spa town of Bath, where nothing grand or adventurous ever happens . . . until she and her new friend Isobel are nearly abducted while walking on a quiet country road-only to be rescued by Alec McClellan, the moody and mysterious Scottish lord she met at Dunbar Castle.
Alec has come to England to deal with a treacherous betrayal and fears that his half-sister Isobel is in peril from an old enemy. Does he dare share his secrets with Caro? The bold and brave beauty leaves him no choice, and together they are quickly caught up in a swirl of dangerous intrigue . . . where fiery desire between them may ignite into the greatest danger of all.
PASSIONATELY YOURS by Cara Elliott is an exciting Regency Historical Romance. #3 in the “Hellions of High Street”, but can be read as a stand alone. Although, I would recommend reading all three titles, starting with,”Sinfully Yours”, then, “Scandalously Yours”.
Three sisters, named “The Hellions of High Street” by the ton.
“Three very unconventional sisters with a passion for writing . . .”
“Olivia, the eldest, pens fiery political essays, Anna, the middle sister, writes racy romance novels and Caro, who is not quite out of the schoolroom, is a budding poet”
This is Caroline Sloane, the youngest Sloane sister and the poet, aka, Caro and Alec McClellan, a Scottish Lord, she meet previously at Dunbar Castle, Scotland.
Another passionate Sloane sister, gets into trouble and must be rescued by her very own Scottish hero, Alex, who is a brooding Scot. Fast paced and full of passion, secrets, a bit of treason, danger, adventure, and romance. The perfect conclusion to the “Hellions of High Street” saga. With engaging characters and an intriguing storyline will keep you up all night turning pages.
Once again, Ms. Elliott has written a tale of passion and romance. A must read! A very enjoyable read! Gifted from the publisher.
