Review for The Desire of a Lady by Linda Rae Sande
The Desire of A Lady is the third book in The Sisters of The Aristocracy by Linda Rae Sande. I fell in love with the two main characters, Lily Harkins and William Overby from the beginning. They are both such great characters who just want to find love. William is my absolute favorite and I was rooting for him from the beginning, hes such a down to earth hard working man who is doing the best he possible can to make it in a world where he was doomed to live a poor life from the beginning. He works his way up from the bottom of the ladder all the way to a clerk and is doing quite well for himself and wants nothing more, until he meets Lily Harkins, the illegitimate daughter of an earl who must find her a husband soon or end up getting married to whomever her brother decides. Sparks fly from the beginning, but will her brother approve? Will she decide on someone wealthier or is William just what she wants? I really did enjoy this book but was a little disappointed when I realized the most of this book was about her telling tales about other men who had tried to court her. There wasn't much of a love story with the two, the honestly only meet face to face five times in the entire book and only two of those had any depth to them. Either way it was a really good read and can be a stand alone even though it is the third in the series. I didn't even know it was a serial until the end and I do plan on reading the others since there were many times I wished I knew about certain characters that I now know have books of their own.
3.5 out of 5 stars
