ReviewL Goddess of the Hunt by Tessa Dare (New Author Challenge)

goddessFrom the back of the book:

Ever the bold adventuress, Lucy Waltham has decided to go hunting for a husband. But first she needs some target practice. So she turns to her brother’s best friend, Jeremy Trescott, the Earl of Kendall, to hone her seductive wiles on him before setting her sights on another man. But her practice kisses spark a smoldering passion – one that could send all her plans up in smoke.

Jeremy has an influential title, a vast fortune, and a painful past full of long-buried secrets. He keeps a safe distance from his own emotions, but to distract Lucy from her reckless scheming he must give his passions free rein. Their sensual battle of wills is as maddening as it is delicious, but the longer he succeeds in managing the headstrong temptress, the close Jeremy comes to losing control. When scandal breaks, can he bring himself to abandon Lucy to her ruin? OR will he risk his hear, and claim her for his own?

Goddess of the Hunt has to be one of my favorite reads of 2009. I loved everything about this book. Ms. Dare writes with such a fun flair and a big heart that I couldn’t put the book down. Lucy starts out the story as a naive girl who wants to practice on her brother’s friend so she can then go after the man she really wants. Jeremy just wants to stop Lucy from hurting herself and if he gets to kiss her – a lot – in the process then that’s just what he’ll have to do. These two were obviously meant for each other from the beginning, and it was great fun to watch them find each other. Lucy’s transformation from young and naive to a woman who knows what she really wants in the man she loves is perfect. The melting of the walls around Jem’s heart was enough to warm the heart of any reader. I’m now reading Surrender of a Siren (I was lucky enough to win the book during a Twitter contest) and I am loving it as much as GOTH. I can’t wait for book three and everything else written by Tessa Dare.

the book girl gives GODDESS OF THE HUNT 5/5!!!

  1. Oh hmmm. I was just eyeballing that book covetously last night. I think Ms. Dare might be the next new romance author I read.

    But I have kind of a hellacious TBR pile right now, trying to gnaw my way through that first.
