Review: One Week As Lovers by Victoria Dahl

owalFrom the back of the book:

Some pleasures, once tasted…

Even after finding his betrothed in the arms of another man, Nicholas, the Viscount Lancaster, knows he must wed. Propriety – and the dire state of his finances – decrees it. At least a visit to his country estate provides relief from playing the role of loving fiance, as well as a surprising encounter with Cynthia Merrithorpe. Once his childhood companion, Cynthia has grown into a lovely, alluring woman – one who’s undertaken a daring ruse to avoid being sold into a miserable marriage.

Are Too Delicious to Forget…

When Nicholas left for London to assume his new title, Cynthia was forced to put aside her girlish infatuation. Now he’s returned, more wickedly attractive than ever. And this time, Cynthia is determined to experience the pleasure she’s dreamed of for so long. But with a man like Nicholas, seduction is only the beginning of a sensual journey that will tempt them both to defy convention, and uncover the very heart of desire….

I love Victoria Dahl. Her books are an excellent retreat from the daily grind of life.  I have to admit that I like her contemporaries more than the historical, but OWAL was an excellent book. Nicholas Lancaster is a man with a terrible past and the need of a rich wife. When he finds his fiance with another man he decides to spend some time at his country estate. Cynthia Merrithorpe  is a woman who is running away from a disastrous marriage, no matter what happens to her or her family. These two find each other at a time when they both need someone who is a friend first and lover second. I loved the way Ms. Dahl tied the story together. There was no easy ending for these two, but it was a very satisfying one. I really liked how it wasn’t all tied up neatly in a bow, and that there were a lot of hoops to be jumped through before Cynthia and Nick could find their happily ever after. This book was more emotional than the previous stories, but it was also heart-warming and lovely.

the book girl gives ONE WEEK AS LOVERS a 4/5!
