I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was the first book eBook I have ever read, so it was an experience. Jaimey Grant provides the reader into the fascinating world of Regency England and demonstrates how character development is done. Though the plot is dark, like most love stories are (Romeo and Juliet or Antony and Cleopatra anyone?), it is necessary to the story. The tone of the book allows the reader to feel the difficulty the characters go through when they have to forgive, move on and in some cases in the book, get revenge.
My favorite character was Conner. He was the light in the tunnel for this novel, even though at times he could fall in anger or sadness he was still a very fun character to connect with. I also, enjoyed the character of Adam, secretive people are always interesting.
I’m not going to lie, I wanted to back-hand Bri a couple times, she can be quite annoying but after finishing the book and looking back on it I realize how quintessential her personality was to the novel. If Bri had been any other way the story would not have worked. Grant, again, shows her talent with character development.
There are sequels to BETRAYAL or at least companion novels. I look forward to reading them and continuing on the journey Ms. Grant has transported her readers to. I highly recommend this book to romance fans, and historical romance fans, alike for both appetites are thoroughly fed.
