Loving Lady Dervish is a thoroughly enjoyable historical romance by Heather Snow. This is a short story in the Veiled Seduction Series where all the heroines are intelligent and confident women compared with the men who struggle to live up to their titles or the responsibilities thrust upon them. Loving Lady Dervish is no different.
This story revolves around Lady Phoebe Anson who plans to earn her living illustrating botany texts rather than being forced into an arranged marriage by her father. She unexpectedly encounters her childhood friend Lord Malcolm Gray at the Frost Fair and he is drawn to her like a moth to flames. Trying to atone for a few snide remarks he made five years ago that made Phoebe the subject of society gossip (he said she was a "whirling dervish"), Malcolm agrees to help with her plans for independence.
Snow's writing is simply mesmerizing. Although the audiobook runs just over three hours, I was fully engrossed in the story and couldn't stop listening to it until I was finished. I especially appreciated the journey that Malcolm took from being a reluctant lord to supporting Phoebe in her desire for independence, even if it meant he had to give her up just after realizing he was desperately in love with her.
I listened to the Audible version of this story narrated by the outstanding Kate Marcin. She really brought the characters to life, giving each character their own distinct voice. In summary, I can't wait for the next book written by Heather Snow and narrated by Kate Marcin. Brava!
The author gave her readers a feisty and smart heroine who didn’t bow down to society’s expectations in order to get her happy ever after.
