Will a firebrand and her antagonist
discover passion of a different kind?

REVIEW

SILK & SCHOLAR is an enjoyable historical romance, of “enemies” becoming lovers. While it is a short novella and the steamiest is a kiss between the main characters, Cassandra Dean’s characters are charming and develops the sweetest romance. Perhaps the “exchange” of correspondences at the beginning of the story sets the tone of their relationship, and you can see that these two characters, while they love to needle the other into a passionate frenzy, they also find their exchanges exhilarating, something that heats up their blood and slowly, they find that perhaps underneath, they are feeling something else for the other all along.

 

Needless to say, I thoroughly enjoy this latest offering by Cassandra Dean in the Silk Series. The grand gesture by Christopher was moving, and I love that while Etta was finding a hard time opening up/articulating her feelings, he didn’t let her flounder, but instead he took up the conversational ball to further convince her of his feelings for her, absolutely leaving her in no doubt as to what they are.

 

If you have loved the previous book, Silk & Scars, as I did, you’ll be tickled to see cameo appearances by Gwen and Edward. I’m looking forward to the next (and last?) book in the series.

Rating: 4 stars
