A STARRED review from Library Journal

Mar 5, 2020

Dear Readers,

I’m absolutely ecstatic to share the news that LORD HOLT TAKES A BRIDE has earned a starred review from Library Journal!!!

redstarLorret, Vivienne. Lord Holt Takes a Bride. Avon. (Mating Habits of Scoundrels, Bk. 1). Apr. 2020. 384p. ISBN 9780062976598. pap. $7.99. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
Proving that one can never take a romance title too literally, the eponymous hero, Lord Holt, does indeed take a bride—straight from the church where she is set to marry another man. Technically, Winnifred Humphries has already made up her mind not to marry the odious Mr. Woodbine, but she wasn’t expecting the dashing Asher, Lord Holt, to be the man in her getaway carriage. Asher plans to ransom the headstrong heiress to get back the money her friends stole during his recent (accidental) kidnapping, when they tried to interview him for their guidebook, The Mating Habits of Scoundrels. Things go sideways for Winn and Asher when they’re shot at by thugs, and they’re soon on the run in the country, dodging thieves, thunderstorms, and suspicious farmers with pitchforks. Along the way, Winn starts to feel desirable for the first time, overcoming a lifetime of criticism about her weight, and Asher slowly realizes that some things are more valuable than money. VERDICT A rollicking Regency road trip with plenty of heat. Fans of Lorret (The Rogue To Ruin) will devour; new readers will want more.—Kathryn Howe, Saint John Free P.L., NB

I can’t wait to share Winn and Asher’s story with you (less than 4 weeks to go)! 🙂

Until then…

Warm wishes and happy reading,
