Tempting Bella by Diana Quincy ~ Accidental Peers #2 ~ Review ~
As some of you know I've found a new love for historical romance books. Tempting Bella is one of those wonderful books that has made me so glad I have rediscovered this genre! I loved Tempting Bella, I just plain adored Bella. This woman is strong, independent, has a wonderful flair for dressing to get attention, but yet has a little problem with her confidence because of her father.
Diana Quincy has written a delightful story full of fascinating characters and a great storyline. I was completely captivated by the storyline. Bella was married to Sebastian at a very young age. They met for the first time at their wedding that was arranged by their fathers and then go their separate ways. What I loved is that when they meet again they feel an instant attraction without knowing who the other is. They have a wonderful chemistry that leads to some interesting sparks.
Sebastian is a true gentleman and takes the time to get to know his wife and make sure she is comfortable. Sebastian is a smart, charming, handsome, honorable fellow that I just could not help but falling in love with. There is of course tremendous tension with all the unknown things between these two. It was a lot of fun watching their relationship build as the story went on. There is also some mystery and a few unsuspected surprises.
On the whole this is one wonderfully written book. It contains all my favorites things, some humor, a little mystery, some nice steamy romance scenes, and charming characters. When you mix that all together Diana Quincy has created an ideal book for me. This book is part of the Accidental Peers series. I have not had a chance to read the first book in the series but I did not feel I was at any disadvantage. I think you could read this as a stand alone with no problem. However after reading Tempting Bella I know I sure would not mind reading the first book in the series and I will certainly be looking for more work by Diana Quincy.
I don't know if there is a story in the works for Bella's friend Tabby, but I hope there is. I really enjoyed her friendship with Bella and think she has a story to tell.
I was given the chance to read this fabulous story in exchange for sharing my thoughts with you. As always it has been my pleasure to share my thoughts. If you get a chance to read Tempting Bella, I would love it if you stopped by to let me know what your thoughts are.
