Say You’ll Be My Lady by Kate Pembrooke


Lady Serena Wynter is a member of a progressive ladies club.  Serena is passionate and independent, sometimes landing in trouble.  Charles Townshend is the ultimate gentleman that fights his attraction to Serena due to a disastrous family secret.  

I loved the first book in this series; however, I felt this book fell flat.  The story was too long; there was not enough content to justify the book’s length.  Many ideas and situations would occur but disappear, leaving the reader with a sense of confusion.  The push and pull between the couple were not exciting.  I liked Serena and especially Charles, yet I didn’t feel the passionate connection I wanted.

I do not read a lot of friends-to-lovers tropes, and I felt it worked; I liked that aspect of the story.  I did enjoy the foundation of the plot, and the premise was interesting.  Kate Pembroke is a talented author.  Say You’ll Be My Lady is the second book in the Unconventional Ladies Of Mayfair series.  I like the spunky characters and intelligent dialogue.  Unfortunately, this one did not meet my expectations after reading the first book.  I will read more of this series because I genuinely like the author and the intrepid ladies of this series.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book through Netgalley and the publisher.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
