CATCH A FALLING HEIRESS is Book three in Laura Lee
American Heiress in London series. I really love the
heroes in this fabulous Victorian romance series by Laura
Lee Guhrke. I highly recommend reading the previous book
this series -- not just because it's a great book too, but
because it offers context for the circumstances of Jack
Linnet's first meeting in CATCH A FALLING HEIRESS.
Jack Featherstone technically ruined Linnet Holland.
However, I would adore being ruined by him. Jack is all at
once urbane and charming while also being the kind of guy
that can level a punch to defend a lady's honor. I enjoyed
the tidbits about Jack's past that Laura Lee Guhrke
sprinkles throughout the story -- they help establish who
Jack is and where his head's at. His seduction attempts
erotic and sensual but, more importantly, they focus on
Linnet is. As a young woman who has been burned badly in
the past by men who have only wanted her for her money,
believing that she's wanted for herself is the most
seductive thought imaginable.
As much as I love Jack, I can understand a little of
Linnet's reticence about believing in him and trusting her
feelings. Laura Lee Guhrke does a good job of exploring
vulnerability that she tries to hide. I like that CATCH A
FALLING HEIRESS is told from both points of view. Jack and
Linnet are both complex characters and are more than the
facade that society sees. The sexual tension is amazing
the scenes between Jack and Linnet are, at times,
CATCH A FALLING HEIRESS is a prime example of what has
me a Laura Lee Guhrke fan -- utterly charming heroes and
high romance. The romance is a good mix of sweet and sexy.
I enjoyed seeing characters from previous books in this
series. I eagerly await the next book by one of my new
favorite historical romance authors.
