Samantha by Andrea Kane - Review and Giveaway

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: October 18, 2016
Number of pages: 400
Genre: Romance
Series: Barrett Family #2

Lady Samantha Barrett wondered if her imaginary hero would ever become real. Of course, he must be devastatingly handsome and just a bit dangerous. Now, her coach is filled with a collection of Gothic novels and her head with romantic notions as she eagerly leaves her brother’s country estate for her first London season. Still unsophisticated and too innocent by far, Samantha is ill-prepared for the hypocrisy of the ton or for the formidable stranger who crosses her path—a stranger she is sure must be the man of her dreams…

Remington Worth, the Earl of Gresham, is reputed to be anything but a hero. He is, however, intrigued by the fresh, young Lady Samantha. At sea, Remington had been a brilliant captain. To help save his country, he has accepted the Crown’s commission to become the most deadly and loyal covert agent, posing as a notorious womanizer and blackmailer. His latest mission is to investigate the mysterious disappearances of England’s prized merchant vessels. With an iron will, he will allow no one to get in his way or touch his heart—until Samantha.

What did I think of this book:
This was a nice addition to this series. I like the anniversary addition cover of this book as well. I was glad to hear Samantha's story and to see if she could get the happy ending that she dreamed of. Like many people she would read her romance books and dream of finding her hero. I enjoyed the descriptions of the dances that she wnt to, the shipping yards, the ton and London in general. The historical aspect of this story is what drew me in but the romance is what kept me reading. Another part of the book I liked was taht it was set against the shipping world of the time period. It added another element to the story. All in all a good book to read.
