Now to my review:
Forever a Lord (The Rumor, #3)

He's a fighter, not a lover.
But that's about to change...


Lady Imogene Norwood lives a sheltered life of quiet respectability and routine...until she debuts at her first Season. There among London's elite she meets the wild and broken Lord Atwood. And the very shy English rose suddenly realizes that a little chaos might just be what her heart desires.

Lord Nathaniel James Atwood doesn't believe true love exists. Since scandal tore him away from his family at an early age, he has spent his life fighting for what he wants. That attitude has made him a rising star in bare-knuckle boxing, and now leads him back to London to reclaim the life that was stolen from him. But upon meeting the innocent Imogene, his beliefs are trounced...as guarding his heart against her proves to be the fight of his life.


My Rating: 5/5

Absolutely excellent historical romance! This book is SO sweet. I adored Forever a Lord.



I read the previous book in the series and I really loved it, so I was hoping that the next book would be just as good. Let me tell you, it was even better. One aspect that I really liked is that the books occurred simultaneously. As Imogene and Nathaniel were falling in love, Matthew and Bernadette's story was occurring, just in different places. I just thought that was interesting. 

Imogene was a sweet heroine. You could call her naive, but it wasn't in a bad way. It made her very sweet and thoroughly likable. But, make no mistake, Imogene was no coward. When she had something she wanted or needed to do, she didn't hesitate to do it. I really liked how loyal she was to her brother. The whole story began because she wanted to help her brother. Once again, very likable heroine-one of my favorite historical romance heroines yet.

Nathaniel was the opposite in that he was the farthest from naive it was possible to get. He suffered a lot in his life, he had his innocent view of the world taken away when he was just a child, and he crawled out of that mess victorious. But that is what made him a perfect match for Imogene. Nathaniel was a admirable hero. He was strong and sweet and absolutely lovable. And when Mr. Tough Guy fell in love, he was so adorable. He was a fantastic hero-once again, one of my favorites in historical romances.

Imogene and Nathaniel had such a sweet relationship. It was so adorable. They were just so perfectly matched. Their relationship was so pure and loving that it just warmed my heart. There is a bit of spicy  mixed in with the sweet, but it was just a pinch. Just enough to make things interesting ;)

The plot of the book was well paced and had me hooked the entire way through. There aren't really any twists and turns within the book. It's fairly straight forward. There is a secret that is revealed, however, that had me surprised. And the ending was so sweet. Not only did it show this couples happy ending, but the happy endings of the other couples in the series. 

Forever a Lord was a sweet, wonderful historical romance. To any lovers of romance, you need to read this book!

Thanks to Netgalley for a copy!
