Quote-Tastic Review ~ A Wicked Pursuit by Isabella Bradford

“You’re a strong man, my lord,” the woman said, tucking a woolen blanket around him as if he were a swaddling babe. “A brave one, too. Here, take my hand, and squeeze it whenever you feel the pain’s too great to bear. I’ll be walking beside you, and I promise I won’t let go.”
Her hand was surprisingly soft, her fingers warm and more comforting than he’d ever dreamed a woman’s could be. She wouldn’t let him go. He felt certain of that.
She wouldn’t . . . let him . . . go . . .


"In Isabella Bradford’s enthralling new trilogy, three noble brothers—London’s most scandalous rakes—are about to do the unthinkable: settle down. Harry Fitzroy, Earl of Hargreave, is the first to meet his match and lose his heart . . . to a lady he least expected." ~ Goodreads
A great start to Bradford's Brecondridge Brothers Trilogy!

A near fatal accident, long recovery, realizing he almost married the wrong sister is what is in store for Harry Fitzroy, heir to a dukedom. His flighty, foolish, almost-fiancee, Julia scares his horse and causes him to be thrown, knocked unconscious, to break a leg and then she flees to London to "party it up" and leave the responsibility of caring for him to her younger sister, Lady Augusta or "Gus".

I loved Gus!! She wasn't a pushy heroine but a strong silent dependable, trustworthy lady. She's the wallflower to Julia's "Diamond" and Harry falls for her hard! Harry is annoying, but during his long recovery, he turns endearing. How Ms. Bradford makes that work is magical! I'd recommend this story to someone who loves unusual historicals!




“Why the devil don’t you leave?” he demanded. “If I’m so damned offensive to you, why don’t you leave now like you always do? Go, leave me, and be like your sister.”
“Because I’m not my sister,” she said. “That’s why.”

Synopsis


As the eldest son of the Duke of Breconridge, Harry Fitzroy is duty-bound to marry—and marry well. Giving up his rakish ways for the pleasures of a bride’s bed becomes a delightful prospect when Harry chooses beautiful Lady Julia Barclay, the catch of the season. But a fall from his horse puts a serious crimp in his plans. Abandoned by Julia before he can propose, the unlucky bachelor finds himself trapped in the country in the care of Julia’s younger sister.

Harry has never met a woman like Lady Augusta. Utterly without artifice, Gus is clever and capable, and seems to care not a fig for society. After a taboo kiss awakens passion that takes them both by surprise, Harry realizes he’d almost given his heart to the wrong sister. While London tongues wag, he’ll use his most seductive powers of persuasion to convince the reluctant Gus that she belongs with him—as his equal, his love, his wife
