ARC Review: Discovery of Desire by Susanne Lord

Title: Discovery of Desire

Author: Susanne Lord


The one man who’s not looking for a wife
Seth Mayhew is the ideal explorer: fearless, profitable, and unmarried. There is nothing and no one he can’t find—until his sister disappears en route to India. His search for her takes him to Bombay, where Seth meets the most unlikely of allies—a vulnerable woman who’s about to marry the wrong man.

Discovers a woman who changes his dreams forever
Teeming with the bounty of marriageable men employed by the East India Company, Bombay holds hope for security for Wilhelmina Adams. But when the man she’s traveled halfway around the world to marry doesn’t suit, Mina finds instead that she’s falling in love with a man who offers passion, adventure, intimacy—anything but security…


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

5 out of 5 stars

In Search of Scandal was one of my all-time favorite reads of 2015 and the second book in this series, Discovery of Desire, was just as amazing! Seth and Mina's love story was one of those romances that once you start reading, you just can't put down. It was exciting and sweet and so heartfelt. Seth and Mina made me feel all the emotions as their romance progressed while Seth desperately tried to find his missing sister and Mina tried to help him while also trying to find better and more stable lives for her and her own sister. This love story was just glorious in every way. But the biggest highlight for me was Seth. The entire time I was reading this book, he had me completely captivated. His character was just so good and trusting and adorable. It got him into trouble at times, but it also made him one of the best historical romance heroes I've ever read. Overall, this book was a complete win for me. I haven't heard any news about more books by this author yet, but I really hope we get more from her soon because after reading this marvelous book, I'm even more excited for what this author might grace us with next.
