Book Review – Notorious Pleasures by Elizabeth Hoyt

Notorious Pleasures (Maiden Lane, #2)Notorious Pleasures by Elizabeth Hoyt
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I always love a story about a not-so-rakish rake that falls hard for the novel’s heroine. This novel was no different. I absolutely love Griffin; his charm, his love of his family, his sensitive side… the list could go on.

The heroine of the novel, Lady Hero, while also quite a likeable character, was more challenging to identify with. She held firm to her ‘statue-like’, prim exterior, which one could expect from the daughter of a Duke, but it was difficult for me to get past her emotional restrictions. We knew she loved Griffin, Griffin knew she loved him, and yet she steadfastly refused to admit it. I found it strangely frustrating and wanted to give the girl a shake.

Alas, the novel ends happily in a perfect conclusion to satisfy the reader. As always, I love Elizabeth Hoyt’s colourful descriptions and her use of intriguing words. Her action/fight/battle scenes were fast-paced and entirely enthralling.

As usual, I highly recommend Elizabeth Hoyt’s work!
