Brazen & the Beast by Sarah MacLean: Blog Tour Review + Giveaway

An historical romance with excellent sexy times, fabulous banter, and some mobster vibes? Yes please! My SIL Heather was a huge fan of this one, and thinks you will be too!

New York Times Bestselling Author Sarah MacLean returns with the next book in the Bareknuckle Bastards series about three brothers bound by a secret that they cannot escape—and the women who bring them to their  knees.

The Lady’s Plan

When Lady Henrietta Sedley declares her twenty-ninth year her own, she has plans to inherit her father’s business, to make her own fortune, and to live her own life. But first, she intends to experience a taste of the pleasure she’ll forgo as a confirmed spinster. Everything is going perfectly…until she discovers the most beautiful man she’s ever seen tied up in her carriage and threatening to ruin the Year of Hattie before it’s even begun.

The Bastard’s Proposal

When he wakes in a carriage at Hattie’s feet, Whit, a king of Covent Garden known to all the world as Beast, can’t help but wonder about the strange woman who frees him—especially when he discovers she’s headed for a night of pleasure . . . on his turf. He is more than happy to offer Hattie all she desires…for a price.

An Unexpected Passion

Soon, Hattie and Whit find themselves rivals in business and pleasure. She won’t give up her plans; he won’t give up his power . . . and neither of them sees that if they’re not careful, they’ll have no choice but to give up everything . . . including their hearts.

She grew up on the shipping docks and it shows. Hattie is looking to take over her father’s company and she will do just about anything to prove herself worthy- up to and including making herself marriageable. What is the best way to do that? Well, a high-priced brothel of course.

This would have been a perfect plan if her dimwit of a brother wouldn’t have left the best looking man she had ever seen unconscious in the back of her best friend’s ride. Whit, or as you will soon call him, Beast- seems to be foiling all her plans and will be soon opening her eyes.

This book has it all. Fighting, dresses, friendship, family, love and of course a lot lust and if you are looking for a story this summer to make you smile the second book in the Bareknuckle Bastards is it!
