Review of What the Groom Wants

WHAT THE GROOM WANTS may be purchased here.

Jade Lee

Radley Lyncott returns from the sea, hopeful to court Wendy Drew, the woman that he has loved for years.  Unfortunately, Wendy's brother has got himself in debt to a notorious rake, Demon Damon, and Wendy has agreed to help pay off the debt by working in Damon's gambling establishment.  Damon, also, has become obsessed with Wendy, and to complicate matters further, Radley unexpectedly inherits a title and Wendy doesn't consider herself his social equal.

WHAT THE GROOM WANTS is a real page-turner of a book, filled with action, excitement, and interesting characters.  I really enjoyed the fact that Wendy isn't the ordinary regency heroine--she is a commoner, who has pulled herself up by the bootstraps and runs a successful business.  Wendy will do almost anything for her friends and family, and she is very intelligent and motivated.  The villain of the story Demon Damon, is a real psycho, and at times, Wendy's plight seems all but impossible.  Radley is a great hero, who is up-standing and good of heart, but he does occasionally suffer from foot-in-mouth disease.  These two make a great couple, and I really enjoyed their story.

NOTE:  I received this book in return for an impartial review.
