TBR reviewer: Luta Wolf
Dr. Matthew Gibson was floored to see his best friend’s little sister standing in his office, now the full fledged beauty he had always expected her to become. But the fact she was asking to be treated for “Female Hysteria” made his fingers itch to touch her and claim her as his own.
Neither knew that the one afternoon in his office would change their lives forever.
While the characters are set in a time period with a strict code of conduct, they manage to bend to the rules. The author did an amazing job of writing characters true to the time and yet keeping them refreshing. Carrie isn’t a simpering woman that only want to do a man’s biding. She may have to follow the rules but she looks for the loopholes.
Matthew isn’t interested in Carrie because everyone else is. He isn’t looking at her to rise in society but instead is drawn to her for her vitality and life. This is a historical romance, the plot is out of the ordinary and quickly grabs attention because of the female hysteria aspect. Considering the creativity, I was surprised by the writing style, honestly it made the book all the more riveting. It’s an easy but good read that historical romance fans are sure to enjoy.
