The Legendary Lord


'The Legendary Lord' by Valerie Bowman is book six in the "Playful Brides" series. This is the story of Christian Bancroft, Viscount Berkeley and Sarah Highgate. I have read the other book in this series but easily feel this is a standalone book. But I will say that I enjoyed catching up with the past main characters. Christian has been in the previous stories as a secondary character that ends up helping the couples get it was nice to see his story play out in this book.
Sarah parents has set her up to marry a popular and well connected man about town. But Sarah has tried to have feelings for him but he seems to only be able to talk about himself and nothing else. So Sarah gets the ideal to runaway and heads to her father's cabin but ends up at the wrong one. She ends up at Christian cabin. When he comes home from traveling and finds her there he thinks she is a thief at first but soon finds what actually is going on. Christian is not confident around the ladies and the ones he does become close to turn into his friends. So they strike a bargain that if Christian can get her back to London without a scandal Sarah will help him find a wife.
Truly enjoyed this book..can't wait for more from Ms. Bowman!
I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
