Ah, I love this woman’s work! The Delicate Matter of Lady Blayne started of a bit shaky but in true Natasha Blackthorne style, she moved this reader. By the middle of the story, I was taken with both Catroina and James.
This is Natasha’s work but there is more to this one. It’s more emotional and so very heart wrenching. There is deception and manipulation almost everywhere for Lady Blayne. She doesn’t know who to trust and the one’s she should? Well, they are betraying her in the most hurtful of ways. The other twist here is that Catroina and James were always attracted to one another but circumstances and Catroina’s marriage to his wealthier cousin spoiled the budding relationship between them as young adults. James is now the family’s provider after the death of his cousin and he now has to figure out what is going on with the young vivacious woman he once knew. As I’ve said, deception runs amok here and James doesn’t quite know who to trust either...not even his own family. A trip away will help these two rebuild what they lost and of course old feelings start to emerge.
Yes, The Delicate Matter of Lady Blayne started off a bit slow for me. Catroina’s helplessness (what I would call it) irritated me to no end. Yes, she was manipulated but she at times had no problem giving James a hard time? smh. James...he is protecting himself (more his heart). He wants to help Catroina, but can he stop from falling in love with her again?
I enjoyed this story. There were literally so many things going on (in a good way) that were just mind blowing to me. Yeah, Catroina worked my nerves in the beginning but as I read this story, this woman ya’ll. I just...smh. Forced to feel less herself because of her desires, abandoned by her shiftless parents and left in the hands of people IMO that did not have her best interest at heart no matter how they tried to convince themselves that they did. I don’t want to tell the story but I will tell you that this is a must read. Natasha gives you so much of the feels here, you get overloaded at times BUT it is well worth it all.
If you are fan of historical romance with a bit of erotic edge to it, then I highly recommend you check out her work. Her writing style is easy to follow and she gives you characters that you will grow to adore.
