How to Wed a Courtesan by Madeline Martin
Tracy’s rating: 5 of 5 stars
Series: The London School for Ladies, #3
Release Date: June 29, 2021
After meeting Evander and Lottie in the first book and wondering what tore them apart – we finally have answers! And all I have to say is OMG and WOW! I was completely gobsmacked by this book! To say that I loved it is a gross understatement – this is the book I would choose if I was stuck on a deserted island – seriously.
The book is written in parts and gives the reader answers to all the questions that have been building since these two were introduced in the first book, How to Tempt a Duke. We learn how Evander and Lottie met, we see them falling in love, we feel their pain when they part, their reunion, Evander’s attempts to reconcile, and Lottie’s heartache and reasons for refusing him.
I cannot get into the plot without spoilers, so let me just say, that this is a beautifully written, emotional story of forgiveness and second chances, featuring two people who never stopped loving each other but were forced to make choices that changed them forever. The book is filled with wonderful characters, heartache, sorrow, devastating losses, forgiveness, steamy love scenes, a couple of shocking revelations, a true soulmate type love and finally a very hard-won HEA complete with an epilogue that brings all the characters from the series together. If I could, I would give this book 10 stars, I loved it that much and it has earned a spot on my top ten favorite books of all time list 😊 This is the third book in the series, and can easily be read as a standalone title, but for the best experience, I would recommend reading the series in order.
