I’m back! I know I have been pretty far away from the blog, but I’m trying to get back to reviewing and doing bookish posts. Today I bring you a review of a book from one of my favorite historical romance authors, Virginia Health.
“The Uncompromising Lord Flint” is the second book in the King’s Elite series, the first one being “The Mysterious Lord Millcroft”. That been said this is a regency romance, published in 1st January 2019.
Thank you Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Virginia Heath for the eCopy of the book and for allowing me to be a part of this blog tour and give my honest review.
Imprisoned by her past- Set free by her enemy!
Charged with high treason, Lady Jessamine Fane is under the watchful eye of icily calm Lord Peter Flint. It’s a task this spy won’t be swayed from, no matter how alluring his prisoner! Only it’s not long before Flint realises that tenacious Jess hides a lifetime of pain. With so much at stake, can he afford to take a chance on their powerful attraction?

If you have been following my reviews you know I loved historical romances and I will read them quickly because I won’t put down the book until I have finish it. That’s what happened with this one. “The Uncompromising Lord Flint” is the second book in the King’s Elite series and although it can be read as a standalone, I definitely recommend you to read the first book in the series, and also, Wild Warriner Series because they are connected.
Now, about this book, you get two awesome characters with that magical touch that Virginia Health always gives to her main characters that makes me just fall in love with them. Jessamine and Peter, two amazing people, with different personalities, but that together they created sparks.
For me there was a good balance between them. Peter was a patriot, and since he’s a an agent of the crown of course there is loyalty in him, and of course that shocks with Lady Jessamine’s personality and the crimes she was accused of. But I don’t want to give any spoilers so I want talk about the story in detail, let me just tell you that I love the book and I will say way.
First of all, Jess’ strong minded way and intelligence was something that made the book so much interesting, specially to see what she would do. She doesn’t trust people and she believes she doesn’t need help. So you can imagine why Jess and Peter would be enemies. But this isn’t the typical ‘enemies-to-lovers’ romance. She was someone I could really relate with.
Then, the novel had a good pace and amazing scenes that gave life to the story. With a plot that elevates the importance of all the moments between the characters, by putting them in situations where their beliefs, thoughts, everything is put into perspective. And I liked that. I liked that this book was different from so many others in the genre, especially because of the reason why the characters met and got together.
Besides, no only were the there amazing main characters, the secondary characters were amazing and they gave the story some added dynamics to the novel and it made it fun to learn more about that time period, the community that Virginia Health created. Every character has an important role in the story and in helping or not the characters, and I love how intertwined everything is in Virginia’s series.
It all made sense and it made me excited to turn each page to read more. It was an addicting story, with the right amount of action, mystery, suspense, full of witty moments and sexiness, because there is not enough of sexiness and romance in a regency romance novel.
Now, I have to wait for the next book in the series and that just shows me how powerful Virginia Health’s writing is, it leave us wanting for more. I wasn’t expecting this characters to end up together, but that’s the amazing thing about books, it make us excited, connect emotionally to the characters and feel like we are part of the story. In this case, this book has all that and it was just what I needed.
I definitely recommend this book. If you want a sassy, strong minded, determined female character and a strong, loyal, agent of the crown, both following what they think is right… if you are like me that historical romances are your favorite, go grab this book.
