Lady Windermere's Lover Blog Tour : Review & Giveaway

Hi everyone! I have a stop on the Lady Windermere's Lover blog tour today. There is a review of the book and a giveaway for you all.

Lady Windermere’s Lover
The Wild Quartet Series Book Three
By: Miranda Neville
Releasing June 24th, 2014

Blurb
Damian, Earl of Windermere, rues the day he drunkenly gambled away his family's estate and was forced into marriage to reclaim it. Now, after hiding out from his new bride for a year, Damian is finally called home, only to discover that his modest bride has become an alluring beauty—and rumor has it that she's taken a lover. Damian vows to keep his wife from straying again, but to do so he must seduce her—and protect his heart from falling for the wife he never knew he wanted.

Cynthia never aspired to be the subject of scandal. But with her husband off gallivanting across Persia, what was a lady to do? Flirting shamelessly with his former best friend seemed like the perfect revenge . . . except no matter how little Damian deserves her loyalty, Cynthia can't bring herself to be unfaithful. But now that the scoundrel has returned home, Cynthia isn't about to forgive his absence so easily—even if his presence stirs something in her she'd long thought dead and buried. He might win her heart . . . if he can earn her forgiveness!

My Review
Damian would do anything to get his family estate back. He married a lady so he could get the property back and after a brief time with her left. Now a year later he has come back to rumors that his wife has a lover. Not just any lover but a man he used to call friend and the man responsible for him losing his estate. Cynthia never really had the chance to know her husband before he left. She has done what he asked and learned to improve herself. She has also decided she to use some harmless flirting to get her husband back. It backfires on her when Damian doesn't believe that she has had a lover. Now she is trying to convince him she is an innocent and get their marriage on good grounds. Both are stubborn and have to learn to talk before it will work out.

Cynthia in some ways is a vixen. She hasn't cheated on her husband but she does hope rumors will bring him home. She buys stuff that she really doesn't like to get even with him. She believes in helping others who need it and comes up with some good ways of doing it. She has a curiosity about her as well that works great for Damian. Damian can be moody, hard headed and stubborn. Yet like Cynthia you can't help be drawn to him. I love when he finally begins to open up to her and shows his softer side.

Besides two great main character i enjoyed this story for the plot and background. It has a cause in it I had not heard of but am now going to look up. It is fascinating and shows how little some woman had a say in historical times. I love how Cynthia steps in to help them in her own way. There is also an element of danger as someone wants some paintings and thinks Cynthia is the key to getting them. Damian has to grow a lot in this book and open his eyes. He does open his heart but still fights to see the truth. I love how they both want each other but for different reasons fight it. If you enjoy historical romance books this is a must try.

Author Info
Miranda Neville grew up in England. During her misspent youth she devoured the works of Georgette Heyer, Jean Plaidy, and any other historical novels she could lay hands on. As a result she attended the University of Oxford to study history, ignoring all hints that economics might be a more practical subject. She spent several years writing catalogs of rare books and original letters and manuscripts for Sotheby’s auction house in London and New York. Much of her time in this job was spent reading the personal correspondence of the famous. This confirmed her suspicion that the most interesting thing about history is people.

Since moving to Vermont, she has worked in Special Collections at Dartmouth College and as an editor and journalist on Behind the Times, a small, idiosyncratic (and now defunct) monthly newspaper. She is the owner and editor of a weekly advertiser in the Upper Valley, a job that leaves her enough time to write fiction.

Her first book, Never Resist Temptation. was published by Avon in 2009. The first two books in the Burgundy Club series will be published in 2010.

She lives with her daugher, Becca, a college student and confirmed drama queen, and two cats who are never on the right side of any door.
