Sophia may be the main character and pivot for much of the heroism going on but Lavinia is a hoot and deserved a book of her own!
Sophia's husband died a hero at the battle of Waterloo and she was granted a house and servants by the crown. Only now she has to deal with a blackmailer who is leeching her dry, as well as the Four Horsemen, two of whom are married in previous books (that I haven't read but want to). Sophia wants something more from life but fears what the blackmailer will do to others. She tries to strike a balannce but it's hard work. Meanwhile she finds herself attracted to Sir Nathaniel Gascoigne, again, he's looking forward to marrying off his sister and ward and having batchelor freedom for a while, but Sophia is distracting him.
It's light and fluffy mostly but it deals with a complex problem of the time.
Natasha Madison’s scores a hat trick with the third book in the Something So series, SOMETHING SO IRRESISTIBLE. I loved Max Horton’s and Allison Grant’s story. Allison is the daughter of Parker Grant and Cooper Stone (book one), and the sister of Matthew Grant (book two). Max is Mathew’s teammate and sort of nemesis. The story takes place a few years after book two. This contemporary hockey romance is suitable for adult audiences.
I appreciate when an author can sway your original opinion of a character. I did not like Max in book two. I adored him in book three. I enjoyed learning his back story. He grew up a lot. He regretted his past mistakes, especially where Mathew was concerned.
We first met Allison when she was a little girl. She is now twenty-three and working as the New York Stingers Public Relations Representative.
Initially, Alison and Max cannot stand each other, which is understandable due to Max and Mathew's history. I love that they call a truce, becoming friends. They have fabulous chemistry. They make each other better people.
I enjoyed the dynamics between all the characters within the series. I like that the story was told from both Allison’s and Max’s point of views. The plot was interesting and carefully thought out. The story was skillfully written and exciting from start to finish. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
Georgeanne Howard leaves her fiancé at the altar when she realizes she can't marry a man old enough to be her grandfather, no matter how rich he is.

This bad boy isn't looking to be anybody's savior but his own. Still, a long night stretches ahead of them—a night too sultry to resist temptation.
Seven years later, Georgeanne and John meet again. She is on her way to becoming Seattle's domestic darling and he is past his hellraising days. Shocked to learn that he has a daughter, John's determined to be part of her life. Georgeanne has loved John since the moment she jumped into his car, but will he risk the wrath of his boss, and one final chance at glory, to prove that this time his love will be everlasting?
