Review - A Season of Ruin by Anna Bradley

About the book:

Lily Somerset's plan for the London season is simple: courtship, marriage to a respectable gentleman, then the comfortable existence of a proper Lady. That is, until one tiny misstep leaves Lily on the edge of social ruin, forcing her to depend on a wicked rogue to save her reputation.
Robyn Sutherland doesn't save reputations-he sullies them. He'd rather be drawn and quartered than find himself spending the season as Lily's escort. But he has no choice but to stay until her tattered standing is mended.
What begins as a ruse to deceive London soon flames into an uncontrollable passion. Robyn calls to the wild spirit that lurks beneath Lily's prim exterior, and Lily awakens the hero's heart within Robyn. But can these unlikely lovers trust themselves enough to let desire overrule reason?

My Review 

I loved the flirty interactions between Lily and Robyn their chemistry was brilliant. Even though Robyn is a rake slowly but surely his personality is shown and I couldn't help but like him. Both characters develop well throughout the story and it was fun to see that they both weren't happy with their attraction to each other. Lily can't help but fall for Robyn but what about her decision to marry someone who behaves more like a gentleman. Who is the right choice for Lily?

The story is lighthearted and easy going and that's what I enjoyed most about this book. Lily and Robyn were equally likeable and I really enjoyed seeing where the story would go next. Especially to see what else Lily would get up to to ruin her reputation. Opposites attracting is always fun to see play out and this book is no exception. I liked the added extra of Lily's grandmother as it brought something else to the plot. A Season of Ruin is the second book in the Sutherland Scoundrels series and I would love to read Delia and Alec's story.

Fast moving at times and I never found there to be any slow parts. Perfect to sit back, relax and enjoy with a cup of tea and maybe even some chocolate!

Sizzling, fun & romantic!

Four stars from me!
