Book Review (XLVII) Virtue's Lady

                                            Virtue’s Lady
Blurb
Lady Jane Ramsey runs away from a life of privilege and a disastrous engagement to live among London’s poor, hoping to find freedom and love. No one thinks she can survive in this world, especially Southwark’s handsome carpenter, Mark Virtue. But there is more to this Lady than meets the eye. Jessica Cale is pleased to present the next installment of The Southwark Saga, Virtue’s Lady. From toiling for pennies to bare-knuckle boxing, a Lady is prepared for every eventuality.
 
Lady Jane Ramsey is young, beautiful, and ruined.
After being rescued from her kidnapping by a handsome highwayman, she returns home only to find her marriage prospects drastically reduced. Her father expects her to marry the repulsive Lord Lewes, but Jane has other plans. All she can think about is her highwayman, and she is determined to find him again.

My Review


Virtue’s Lady is a nice addition to Southwark saga series. Another incredible book by author Jessica Cale! She brought a shimmering and sensational story filled with enough chemistry and tension to satisfy a reader and make her escape in Restoration London.   
Virtue’s Lady is a story of second chances, an uplifting look about not settling for less than you deserve. I found it to be delightfully endearing.  Moved me and had me charmed. By the end of the book, I was definitely craving more of these characters. This plot has it all, adventure, love, revenge, twists in the action that leave you wondering what may happen next. All done in such a thoroughly interesting narrative. I loved it!
Interesting characters and engaging plot. Having read Tyburn, I was glad I could read the second book in the series Southwark saga, Virtue’s Lady. I met again Nick and Sally from Tyburn. They were my favorite characters. Now Jane and Mark take the leading roles.
Jane, Lady Jane, is determined to win the heart of the man she loves. Her sacrifice and will power won my admiration. She is my favorite character in Virtue’s Lady.
Mark, Lord Somerton's half brother, on the other hand, believe me, there were moments when I’d have jumped into the story to kick him for being a stubborn man. He rejects Jane but leaves himself led by conniving Meg.
I can’t tell you more without revealing the plot, and I never do it. If you love historical romance, adventure, and page-turning intrigue you must pick up this series! You won't be disappointed, I promise! Wonderful. Looking forward to her next work.
