Confessions of Love
Release date: October 14, 2013
Publisher: Entangled: Scandalous
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance

London, 1817

Lieutenant Jonathan Rycroft is intoxicating. His hands know just where to touch her, his lips know just how to trip her pulse, and his body knows just how to bring about every forbidden desire Lindsay Dunsfield has ever felt. He's the one man that's owned her heart...and he shattered it two years ago.

Returned to London on assignment with the War Office, Jonathan's mission is hindered by a love he cannot forget. One scorching kiss reignites the flames of their passion, but he inadvertently drags Lindsay into a mire of murder and deception that hits closer to home than she ever would have dreamed.

In a world where Lindsay can trust no one, will she find renewed faith in the last place she expected to look?

My Rating: 5 Roses

Thrilling mystery, sweet romance, and a plot to catch a traitor. Confessions of Love was a fantastic historical romance. I loved this book!

Lindsay was a great heroine. She is incredibly loyal to her loved ones and, if saving them involves marrying a nasty old man, then that's what she's going to do. She was determined to clear her brother's name and to hell with the danger. She was very much a character defined by her love for other. That is what guides every one of her actions. But, that also made her susceptible to being manipulated by others. For example, why would her family feel like it was totally okay to sacrifice her for their own good? My only complaint about her was that she didn't trust Jonathon to take care of everything that he promised to take care of. He never gave any indication that he would break his word. Otherwise, I thought she was a lovely character.

Jonathan was also wonderful. He was so sweet. He a very determined character. He was dead set on proving the innocence of Lindsay's brother and freeing Lindsay from her engagement to a traitorous old man. Nothing was going to stop him, not even a risk to his own life. He was a strong, clever, and very sweet hero. I really liked him.

The romance was lovely. Lindsay and Jonathon were very sweet together. They might have been separate for 2 years, but they still loved each other. And, there were certainly sparks between them, made even greater by years of unfulfilled longing. I thought they were a wonderful couple.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way though. The thrills were nonstop as the mystery of who the real traitor went on. I was on the edge of my seat with all the secrets and surprises and betrayals. The truth of who was behind the plot was a huge surprise that I only began to suspect a few pages before the reveal. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.

Confessions of Love was a fantastic historical romance. I loved this book! It was thrilling, romantic, and kept me completely hooked. Lovers of historical romance, this is a book you don't want to miss.
