#Review: THE OFFER by Sara Portman



  4 of 5 stars
 
Bex Brentwood has foolishly speculated on numerous business ventures that have failed and he finds himself with no income, no home and a bleak future. All of that doesn't stop him from trying to better his situation. When he meets Lucy Betancourt, he's intrigued with the practical vicar's daughter. Lucy has no dowry and no prospects of getting married so she plans her future as a governess to relieve the burden on her aging parents. Fate, however, has other plans for these two and a sweet love story emerges.

I was so excited to ready Lucy's story. She was introduced in the previous novel and she's such a unique character--kind, loving, but, oh so practical. Her childhood friend, Emma, the Duchess of Worley, asks her to join her in London where Lucy meets the duke's cousin, Bex. I was happy to see that Bex wasn't trying to get out of his financial situation by wooing a wealthy widow. His character was good and honorable and I loved watching Lucy and Bex's unfolding story. The dialogue was witty and believable between these two as they got to know each other. There are a few twists in the story that kept me turning the pages. I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Fans of Regency romance will be delighted to read this story.

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