#Review: NO REGRETS by Ann Lethbridge

  4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Lethbridge. In NO REGRETS, she takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride of misunderstandings, doubt, passion and love. Carolyn Torrington has loved Lucas, Lord Foxhaven, since she was a young girl growing up next to him in the adjoining estate. Lucas has always considered Carolyn a friend and when his father forces his hand in marriage, Lucas believes that a "in name only" marriage to Carolyn will cause him the least amount of trouble while still securing his inheritance.

I would have liked to seen more of the friendship between Carolyn and Lucas as they grew up, but without that, I didn't quite believe that she was Lucas's best friend. It would have made more sense why she agreed to marry him in the first place. Carolyn's character had depth, but I didn't like the fact that she was constantly doubting her womanly figure even though men flocked around her while in London and again in Paris. She jumped to too many conclusions about Lucas's behavior without even talking with him about it. If they were such good friends, she would have at least asked him to clarify, but she never did. She just assumed the worse. And Lucas did not help his cause by never explaining any of his actions to her. Why didn't they at least sit down and have a conversation? I thought adding in a French cousin was a good twist and helped move the plot along.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
