I was so happy to go back to Covent Garden Cubs Series to read about Brook and his lady love, which awesomely, is a Second Chance Love Novel. YEAH!

Sir Brook Derring is England's best investigator.  Everyone seeks him out to solve their problems.  Brook is proud of his job and enjoys doing it too.  But when the Duke of Lennox asks Brook to find his daughter, Lady Lillian-Anne, Brook was shocked by the drive he feels to finish this job.

It was a shock since one, he despises the Dike of Lennox and two, his daughter was the woman who rejected his offer of marriage in the harshest of ways.  Now Brook wants nothing more than to find Lady Lillian-Anne, return her to her father and wash his hands of the family once and for all.

Lady Lillian-Anne Lennox has lived the life of the privileged. She never wanted for anything plus she is extremely beautiful, which made her very sought after on the marriage mart.

But years of playing the same games with the same people have become tedious for Lillian. And that coupled with her recent loss has given Lillian a new perspective on life.  But a little too late, since she already lost Brook and in a pretty harsh manner as well.

Now because of a kidnapper, her father, and the King, Lillian finds herself back in Brook's life under the most extreme manner. Lillian wants to make things right between Brook and herself, but he stuck in his thinking that she has not changed from the spoiled girl she once was.

Would Brook ever change his opinion of Lillian?  Would Lillian be able to convince Brook that she's changed?  Who is this mysterious kidnapper and what do they want with Lillian? Find the answer to all your questions in the next installment of the Covent Garden Cubs Series, I Kissed a Rogue.

This was an awesome idea for a book that had me entertained, even with all the anomalies contained within. 

Brook wants nothing to do with the spoiled Lillian who broke his heart years ago in the most brutal way. But her father forced his hand and he finds himself married to Lillian against his will.  Now he must figure out who wants to kidnap Lillian as soon as possible so that they can have the marriage annulled.

Lillian has changed for the better, but no one is willing to believe this.  Especially her husband who Lillian has a strong attraction too.  Because her life went downhill fast after her mother died, Lillian knows how it feels to be unwanted.

So even though she wants her marriage to work, her husband is not willing to forget the past in order for them to have a future.

Brook and Lillian was an interesting couple.  They both liked each other, yet Brook keep the past between them to keep Lillian at a distance.  What I did not like about this book, is that one minute they would be getting along great and then boom, Brook would get angry again about the past and then they would be at odds again.

I know that a bad past is what usually keeps the main characters apart, yet somehow +Shana Galen  wrote those parts so abrupt, it felt as if she just randomly brought the past up between Brook and Lillian when it was most convienat for her story.  It was not added in a smooth way that brought a natural flow to the story.

This is my only problem with the story, everything else was perfect, especially the ending since it proved that I was correct about who was behind the kidnapping.  It was so obvious to me early on in the story.

I recommend this book for all the fans of second chance romance and drama. When you read this book, leave a comment telling me how much you've enjoyed the book, or not.
