Lady Fiona's Tall, Dark Folly is a well written, immeasurably fun, fast-paced read. It will have you brimming with smiles, sighing at Rory's chivalry, in awe of Fiona's resilience and strength, reduced to tears as hidden traumatic events, bitterness and pain are revealed and highly intrigued and astounded at the antics of the couple's fellow friends and family members, without once taking the limelight off the besotted pair - only enhancing your enjoyment of the story. Absolutely LOVED it!!!
Fifi (Fiona) hides alot of pain behind a lovable, chipper and witty facade that only highlights her inner foundation of quiet strength and kindness. Whereas the attentive Rory is a highly capable, if emotionally scarred officer (turned Earl), with no tolerance for nonsense or the evasive. Together their allure and attraction is dazzlingly immediate. With a smidge of steam, a whole lot of romantic gallantry to melt the heart, endearingly sweet intimacy and wit and enough insecurities and challenges to make the couple relatable, all makes this story one engaging read that will quite literally capture your heart. Furthermore, the resurfacing of a brutal event and parental torments will quite literally cast a shadow and ruin over the pair's hopes of a happy blissful future together and make you question whether their love will be powerful enough to overcome such past tragedy and bitterness? I must say it was well worth the read to find out!!
Overall, there was always so much going on in this story yet it interlinks and flows beautifully to produce a marvellous setup for a great series and a fun and moving tale in it's own right!! I await the rest of the series with anticipated relish as each relationship, hinted at in this book, promises to be filled with mystery and mischief galore. Alluding at the happy outcome of many a clandestine meeting or endearingly blundering love affair that has blossomed from past histories, instanteous attraction and chemistry.
Book 2 already on preorder; Can't wait to find out what really happened between Mary and Bridges!!
