The Perfect Lover [Laurens]

Book: The Perfect Lover [Cynster #10]
Author: Stephanie Laurens
Genre: Romance - Historical

Review: With a history of antagonizing each other over the years, old friends Simon Cynster and Portia Ashford find themselves at the same house party deep in the English country. Unbeknown to the other, they each have a plan to find a suitable spouse. As Simon and Portia's relationship develops into something they never thought possible, the house party is rocked by a gruesome murder. Simon and Portia try to solve the murder while exploring the feelings being awakened.

Like all the Cynster book, this was a fun, easy, romantic read. Simon was a strong lead character and Portia was okay as his leading lady. Fans of the series will enjoy the many scenes with Lady O, who is a guest at the house party and is instrumental in bringing Simon and Portia together.

Book Junkie's Grade: B-

(side note-I've checked out a bunch of Stephanie Laurens books from the library. If you are interested in the Cynster series, you do not have to read them in order)
