About the Book:
You are cordially invited to the wedding of Miss Heather Cynster . . . but not before she encounters kidnappers, danger, and a daring rescue at the hands of Viscount Breckenridge.
Determined to hunt down her very own hero, one who will sweep her off her feet and into wedded bliss, and despairing of finding him in London’s staid ballrooms, Heather Cynster steps out of her safe world and boldly attends a racy soiree.
But her promising hunt is ruined by the supremely interfering Viscount Breckenridge, who whisks her out of scandal—and straight into danger, when a mysterious enemy seizes her, bundles her into a coach, and conveys her out of London.
Now it’s up to the notorious Breckenridge to prove himself the hero she’s been searching for all along . . .
Stephanie Laurens is a new-to-me author, so I walked into the Cynster series with no expectations, but with some concern that I would be missing out since this is the 16th book. That was not the case at all! The storyline in "Viscount Breckenridge to the Rescue" was downright captivating! I didn't have any problems getting to know the characters and found Breckenridge appealing and crush-worthy. Sigh...
With the mystery of Heather's kidnapping and Breckenridge stepping in to try to be the hero, I was intrigued that everyone was clueless why this all happened. It made for a fascinating read that I didn't want to put down. Heather's need to know added a nice mix of thrill and danger to an already exciting plot.
My only "complaint" with the story is the amount of descriptive sex that was included. Yes, I know that historical romances contain this, so it's not a shock to me, but I'm just not into pages and pages of description from the lingering kiss to the final fireworks. With that said, that's the only drawback for me - but the story more than makes up for it - enough so, that I want to read more of Lauren's books. Her ability to spin a story is amazing, and will keep me coming back for more! I cannot wait to read the next book, and am planning to look for the previous books in the series. This book has made me want to get to know all the Cynsters and their stories!
