I had so much fun reading this book. The fact that it was set in India didn’t hurt either. I’ve never read a regency romance not set in England. It also didn’t hurt that in one of the very first pages you come across a Monkey with Gentlemanly manners. Badmash was by far one of my favorite characters.
This story was super sweet. And I loved how it was love at first sight for Michael. He was instantly captured by this girl who couldn’t articulate a sentence when around a guy. Except she could around him. I loved that they started off so smoothly, where she felt she could actually talk to the man. And he felt comfortable enough to tell her his story and his love for India. It was all super sweet.
And on top of their love story, you had her mother and step father’s as well. And even Jim loving his new daughter. It was all so family centered and you felt their strong love for each other. I loved the scene at the end when Jim said he wouldn’t give her away to anyone else. It just shows how much he has come to love her as his own daughter. That was one of the sweetest parts of the book in my opinion.
