The Improper Bride Sisters of Scandal #5 Read & Download ✓ 104 Cold arrogant and demanding Henry Eldridge Maruess of Riverton would never dally with a mere servant But when Henry is injured in a horrible fire his pretty housekeeper Cassandra nurses him back to health throwing them together day and night As he slowly heals from his burns their friendship blossoms and the class walls between them start to crumble Cassandra is surprised by glimpses of a kind. I am re reading all my 5 star rated romance novels There are 62 on my shelf and counting This is book 46 This is how my 46th re read held up I think I loved it even on my 2nd reading It s not perfect certainly not a light breezy charming read but pretty damn close It s romantic alright and so hot but it s also a bit achingly painful Simply because Henry and Cassandra are not perfect And their behavior is at times a bit difficult to be confronted with Henry can be such an ass but it seems very believable to the narrative of his time and upbringing He is also the most compelling character as he is the one who goes through a very needed and believable transformation I particularly love how he appears a certain way in some chapters and when the POV shifts you actually see what is behind his behavior and that he is a truly flawed but likable character Cassandra who is true to herself can at times pale in comparison This re read keeps the 455 stars review This is my original review Tropes Enemies to Lovers Work Relationship Unstarched hero Widow Forbidden Love Class Difference Opposites Attract Scars hero Holy crap I am giving this one 5 stars Ok so I am in fact giving it 45 stars but full stars means it deserves a place on my re read shelf so I am rating it 5 stars on GoodreadsWhere was this hidingThis book took me completely by surprise as I had zero expectations and I can t even remember why I was prompted to buy itIt s a little angsty a little dark but fresh funny romantic leaves you gooey warm and at times uneasy I was hooked from the very beginning Lord Riverton is awake And the relief that swept her at hearing this news was a little too strong for the simple relief a servant might feel for her employeruick plot When housekeeper Cassandra Davis employer Henry Eldridge Maruess of Riverton is hurt in a fire she is tasked to entertainlift his spirits Walls between their stations are torn down and an unlikely friendship blossom And attraction of course there is attraction Cassandra has always been aware of her employer no matter how hard she has tried to deny it Lord Riverton wasn t this pale lifeless thing He wasn t a shell She would have preferred him snapping out commands She would have preferredanything but this She tried to pretend their closeness hadn t sent her senses rioting like fireworks across the sky Because she wasn t a stupid woman and she knew revealing any sort of attraction to the maruess no matter how base would be the height of stupidityHenry is aware of no one particularly his employees or servants as he calls them That all changes as he is stuck in bed Insubordination from a servant had never made him feel uite soalivebefore He d become jaded over the years and Mrs Davis was something different The novelty would go away within a few days or a week at most and he could go back to an orderly world where his housekeeper standing up to him would infuriate him and result in her immediate dismissalnot make him want to goad her even further just to see the fierce light in her eyes He lowered his hand back down to the mattress annoyed he d noticed the color of her eyes at all Servants were not meant to be noticed Servants were servants He d never deliberately mistreated them but he d never given them much thought either Cassandra turns his world upside down as she challenges his behavior and the way he views or not views his surroundings While injured in bed Mrs Davis he snapped impatiently Has something gone wrong with your tongue Do you think I have all day She blinked at that startled then looked around at the shadowed room Well Henry attempting to get to know his manservant Do you like to read he asked hopefully Perkins stared at him Are you ill my lord No I m not ill he answered struggling not to be offended He was trying to be nice Maybe he simply wasn t good at being nice He sighed Mrs Davis thinks I should care about my servants Perkins blinked And if you tell anyone that I told you that I ll sack you he added for good measure as he tied his cravat There that made him feel like his old self Did you really just toss a snowball at me Mrs Davis I did my lord You look as if you enjoyed it he said She couldn t help it She grinned I did my lord I should sack you he said No doubt she said cheerfully But his accident has also made Henry very aware of his own mortality and he asks his sister to arrange for 3 eligible women to attend his estate for a house party so he can pick a bride But the only one he really wants to spend time with is Cassandra and both fight their attraction Cassandra he said softly She glanced up and when she met his gaze her eyes were dark with desire There There it was She desired him He wanted to tip back his head and laugh with the sheer relief of it His feelings weren t one sided weren t unreturnedShe wanted him Two of her fingers brushed over his lips softly barely a whisper of touch But the contact sparked fire through his veins He was dry tinder and she was all heat I likeyour mouth she murmured Her hand slowly swept across his cheekbone He leaned into the caress like a dog seeking affection like a damned beggar pleading for sustenance Of course they are not as stealthy as they think and most of the guests are not amused But unlikely support comes from Henry s sister Margaret despite Cassandra s unwillingness to play along Haven t you already done that by selecting his potential brides Cassandra asked Well yes I thought so her ladyship said But imagine my surprise when he seemed only politely interested in them but he positively lights up when he s with his housekeeper Margaret placed a loving hand on her back Mrs Davis is so delightful she said brightly She was regaling me with the most charming stories She glanced at Cassandra Smile and look charming or I m going to push your face in the snow Margaret threatened I hope she gets her own bookCassandra tries to cling to some sense of level headed ness My lord I care about you but as my employer You must see the value you place on the opinion of a housekeeper is vastly misplaced Utter silence followed her remark Oh indeed he said softly in a tone that scared her with its evenness What you feel for me is mereservitude He allowed enough space between them to settle his hand just over her heart She expected him to move downward to cup the weight of her breast she was already arching her back in anticipation of that intensely wanted caress But he didn t His hand remained where it was He was feeling the beats of her heart He held perfectly still his eyes closed like a man in silent prayer He wanted a woman who called him out when he behaved badly He wanted a woman who challenged him A woman who could hold her whisky A woman who wasn t above running through the snow with him who was mad enough to think German was a beautiful language who might just think he was beautiful even with his scars and his cold hard heart Who was he uite suspected smarter than he was There is a lot to this story and there is a thin red thread that is not properly addressed or solved only reason why this book loses a 05 star but I can live with it The shopkeeper s friendly voice broke her from her spell Do you need assistance Yes she needed assistance Henry was staring at her with a half smile and she had the sudden urge to kiss it right from his face Good lord She was in desperate need of assistance 45 stars and only USD 299 for Kindle on Going through Lily Maxton s bookshelf she writes highly uniue plots so go check her out I am sure there is something for everyone
