A Daring Pursuit by Kate Bateman


Tristan Montgomery and Carys Davies are sworn enemies yet are passionately attracted to each other. Carys is vivid and outrageous, and Tristan is cool and respectable. After a tragic experience, Carys has sworn off love and marriage. Tristan offers to show Carys what she has been missing.

Tristan and Carys are both solid, stand-out characters. At times I felt Carys outshone Tristan in personality. It also seemed I experienced more of Carys’ point of view than Tristan’s. You can’t help but love Carys! The plot was fast-moving, energetic, and eye-catching. It was a page-turner. The writing breathed personality and depth into each character and scene. I loved Tristan and Carys’ relationship. The journey the couple takes from enemies to lovers is delectable!

A Daring Pursuit is the second book in the Ruthless Rivals series. The series focuses on two families who have been at odds for centuries. Each couple must break the cycle of mistrust and dislike to find love. Kate Bateman has created romance magic again! I couldn’t put the book down. I love all the nuances in each character. This passionate romance is full of fire, entertainment, and a heart-warming happily-ever-after.

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