When it comes to the "Wanton Dairymaid" series (consisting of Goddess of the Hunt, Surrender of a Siren, and lastly A Lady of Persuasion) I would give books one and two 6.5/10 points.
A Lady of Persuasion would get 4/10.
The heroine is naive and holier than thou, which makes it hard to identify with her. The hero is a jerk (and not a sexy kind but eye rolling kind). There is a vague mentioning of child abuse scene that made me think "OMG! What happened???" - and then it's never mentioned again.
The love story and pairing that would never ever happened in real life.
I know that reading romance novels require leniency when it comes to reality and cynicism - but this book just was hard to read.
Other comments about this book: there’s not much of a plot. I like the fluff so normally this wouldn’t bother me too much, but with such a terrible heroine I started to wonder what the point of this book was. I think the author must have realised it as well because some chapters were more about Joss and Hetta than Toby and Bel. I didn’t mind it too much, I like them - but not enough to redeem the story. Their little arc just did not captivate me either.
It still gets two stars because it has a couple of funny moments that did make me laugh, and the epilogue was cute. All in all, it’s a terrible end to a mediocre trilogy, and I won’t be reading either book again, least of all this one. Big shame.
