Maid of Dishonor
When she’s very, very bad …
Gina Carrington knows exactly how to have fun! But when she sleeps with her friend’s brother, the off-limits Carter, she quickly discovers she’s overstepped the mark.
… life is so much more fun!
Years later, Gina sees Carter again to prepare for her friend’s wedding, and she can’t help but wonder what the harm would be in one more night . He’s available, gorgeous and behind that laid-back Southern charm there’s a wild side even she can’t tame! But Gina has secrets which she can’t hide forever—will their chemistry be strong enough to keep Carter by her side when her secrets come to light?
My third foray into the Mills and Boon world. Maid of Dishonor by Heidi Rice is the thirs book in The Wedding Season from the new Mills and Book Modern Tempted line. Tempted? You should be.
Maid of Dishonor is a story with a lot of elements. You have Gina feeling guilty for her mistake a decade earlier when she slept with Carter Price. The brother of one of her best friends – Marnie. He was also due to get married in the following weeks and was ‘saving himself’ for his wife. Gina has always felt a bit guilty and sets about apologising. Carter thinking this is hillarious laughs at her and assures her the the eventual collapse of his marriage had nothing to do with her and in fact, if anything, she helped to show him who he really was.
However the intervening years were not easy for Gina. She had her own problems after that fateful night at Hillbrook and it has taken years to come to terms with the repercussions.
However that meeting one decade one shows one thing, the chemistry they shared hasn’t died and if anything they are more attracted to each other than ever.
Someone said to me the other day – Mills and Boon are still producing books? Like seriously?? My reply was Go read them!! I am telling anyone who will listen about this Modern Tempted line and in particular The Wedding Season. I think so far this has been my favourite of the four books. Its sassy, sexy and definitely holds depth. I think I could in part relate with Gina, having also lacked quality control in my teens – so to speak. Also being unfortunate to suffer a miscarraige I think I could relate to her in more ways that one.
Gina is a very strong character and has, in Carter, met her match. I love the sniping between them, it only adds to the chemistry. Even with all that hidden depth the story is fun, flirty and most definitely has spunk. It was so good I couldn’t put it down and I don’t think it would be physically possible for me to read it any faster. It was so good that I had to go straight away and buy Kimberly Lang’s The Last Groom Standing, the last book in the series. I want these ladies to come together and write more!!
I will be looking out for my titles by the wonderful Heidi Rice.
