ARC Review: How to Wed a Warrior by Christy English

Title: How to Wed a Warrior

Author: Christy English

Synopsis:

He’s the scourge of the Season...

Reasons to quit London:
1. It’s not the Highlands.
2. It will never be the Highlands.
3. It’s full of the bloody English.

When his wild spitfire of a sister makes a scene by drawing a claymore in Hyde Park, Highlander Robert Waters knows something must be done. To forestall the inevitable scandal, he hires widowed Prudence Whittaker to teach his sister how to be a lady—never expecting to find unbridled passion beneath the clever Englishwoman’s prim exterior.

Mrs. Whittaker is a fraud. Born Lady Prudence Farthington, daughter of the ruined earl of Lynwood, she’s never even been married. In order to make her way in the world, she has to rely on her wits and a web of lies...lies a sexy Highlander is all too close to unraveling.

He swears he will possess her; she vows he will do nothing of the sort. Yet as passions heat, Prudence comes to realize the illicit pleasure that can be had in going toe-to-toe with a Scot.

***MY REVIEW***

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

After reading How to Seduce a Scot, I couldn't help but read this book ASAP and I got to say this series just got more amazing! I absolutely adored Robert and Pru's story.

Robert has so replaced Alex as my favorite Waters brother. And as much as I loved Catherine in the previous book, I actually ended up liking Pru even more as well. Pru was just such a great, strong female character. She went through a lot because of the scandal centered around her brother, but still she managed to go on with her life even though she had to do it in disguise.

The romance in this book was also so much better. The chemistry between the two of them was intense. I actually really liked that both of them were stubborn and tried to resist each other and failed because it made that big moment when they realize that they are it for each other so much sweeter.

Once again, Mary Elizabeth was the highlight of this book for me. Her character is everything and I loved how her antics both accidentally and on purpose brought Robbie and Pru together in the first place. Also in regards to Mary Elizabeth, I really loved how the author gave her a small side story in this book that I could only assume is going to set up her own book because she really deserves her own HEA.

Overall, How to Wed a Warrior was another great installment in this excellent historical romance series that has quickly become a favorite of mine.
