Title: And Then She Fell
Author: Stephanie Laurens
Source: from publisher for review
Review Summary: The unique premise and appealing heroine made this both a great romance and an exciting mystery.
Henrietta Cynster doesn’t believe she’s meant to fall in love. Instead she’s devoted her time to helping other young women determine if their suitors are truly motivated by love. However, when she breaks up a match that was motivated by good intentions (but not love) she feels honor-bound to help James find another bride. This being a romance, Henrietta and James are immediately attracted to one another, but their own stubbornness and some societal constraints have to be overcome before they realize it. Once they do, the book becomes largely a mystery, although one intended mainly to highlight the depths of their feeling for each other.

I just can’t with Stephanie Laurens. All those 30 page sex scenes. I’ve been in a big romance phase for a while and I gave up on her pretty early.
Haha, yeah, I didn’t mind the first one in this book, but the second was sooo unnecessary. Do you have any other romance authors you’d recommend instead?
Do I? Absolutely! The three best writers currently publishing are are Courtney Milan (best flat out writer, try Unraveled), Julie Anne Long (extremely clever and fun, she had a new book out a week ago), and Tessa Dare (fun, bring your willing suspension of disbelief). I have a big bunch of reviews on my blog. If you click on my name, I’ve been keeping a master list on which reviewed books are linked and recommended books are in bolded.
Thanks for the recommendations! I’m adding them all to my to-read list and will definitely check out your blog for more 🙂
