ARC REVIEW Passion Favors the Bold by Theresa Romain
The entire time it almost seems like they argue for the sake of argueing. Hugo's common sense is constantly at war with his own need and Georgette's desire to do something with her life. As much as Hugo tried to talk her out of it and is grumbling because of what's happening he is having a good time on this adventure. The adventure also helps Georgette and Hugo come to some conclusions about their lives and the path they need to take. Unfortunately I didn't quite get the chemistry between them. Yes it there but they spend so much time arguing and both so stubborn it gets in the way of the sexual chemistry, but when they finally do give in it's good.
Hugo and Georgette and a pesky Bow Street Runner are all after the same thing for reasons of their own. The rumors have lead them up north where the missing gold isn't the only problem and when more people end up dead the three of them join forces to uncover the truth and find the gold. Overall, it was a good story not as good as the first one but on the plus side I don't think it matter what order you read these two books in the only commonality between them beside the fact that Benedict and Georgette are related is the gold; so they can be stand alone.
