Book Review - In Pursuit of Eliza Cynster by Stephanie Laurens

I am a late-comer to Stephanie Lauren's popular series that features the lively Cynster family, but I am truly enjoying the latest stories about the Cynster sisters, the youngest members of the famed family.

The first book, "Viscount Breckenridge To The Rescue," was sister Heather's story of finding her true hero. Now, it's sister Eliza's turn, and her hero comes in the most unlikely form of the studious Jeremy Carling.

About The Book:

The pleasure of your company is requested at the wedding of Miss Eliza Cynster . . . but not until she’s rescued from a daring abduction by the most unexpected of heroes!
Brazenly kidnapped from her sister Heather’s engagement ball, Eliza Cynster is spirited north to Edinburgh. Desperate and determined to escape, she seizes upon the first possible champion who happens along— gentleman scholar Jeremy Carling.

Villains and rescues are a far cry from Jeremy’s expertise, yet he cannot abandon a damsel in distress. But danger lurks and hurdles abound in their race to escape the mysterious laird, until a final confrontation on a windswept cliff reveals what their future life could hold— if both are bold enough to capture and own the unexpected love they now share.

I was just delighted with this fun and excitement-filled story.  I love the fiestyness of Eliza Cynster, the determination and persistence of Jeremy, and surprisingly, the sudden turn of events with the Scottish Highlander Lord who might just have a heart after all.

I enjoy books set in the Regency-era, and Stephanie Laurens does such a good job with the descriptions of the time, the people, and events that surround the period.

If you are looking for a lively and captivating tale, consider spending some time with the Cynster sisters. You'll be happy you did!
