A Heart In The Balance by L.G. Rollins
Add to Goodreads
Lady Cassandra Lockhart is determined no one will taint the night her brother announces his engagement—not gossipy ladies nor backhanded Peers. When she sees a gentleman slip from the ballroom, Cassandra assumes the worst; he is off to rendezvous with a young lady. Such would surely spell disaster for the night. Certain she alone can protect her family’s good name, Cassandra hurries to stop him.
Lord Nigel Southcott is nervous over meeting his informant tonight. Still, at the predestined hour he slips from the ballroom and out toward the trees and shadows. Only too late, he realizes it’s a trap set by the infamous Le Renard. Equally as surprising is the beautiful stranger who comes to his aid.
To protect Nigel, Cassandra agrees to keep him hidden, knowing full well that doing so puts herself in danger of gossipmongers and French spies alike. Her reputation is on the line, and his very life—yet between the secrets and stratagem, a connection forms. Le Renard, though, is not willing to give up his prey so easily. Will Nigel and Cassandra’s wit and blossoming love be enough to save them? Or will the growing subterfuge swallow them both?
What I thought
This book was received from the Author, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I am in love with this author’s writing, it just pulls me in every time. I had such a hard time putting this book down. This is the third installment of the Lockhart Regency Romance series. This series follows the Lockhart siblings (there are 5). Each book builds on the last but they can be read as standalone; however, I would suggest that you start with the first one.
This book is Cassandra’s story and I loved watching all the sass the back and forth between Nigel and Cassandra. I am not sure who’s POV I enjoyed more. This book was everything that I was hoping for and so much more.
These are wonderful proper romance books and just what I needed during this time. I am so excited to read the next story and cannot wait for it to come out.
My Rating: /5
