Book review ‘Lord of the Abbey’ by K.R.Richards
Confirmed spinster, Lady Rowena Locke, seeks aid from Harry Bellingham, the Earl of Glaston and head of the renowned Avalon Society, a historical and paranormal Society, to find the lost Glastonbury treasures. Harry is not only interested in the treasure hidden by the last Abbot of Glastonbury before the dissolution of the Abbey, but he is also interested in Rowena.
When Harry and his fellow Avalon Society members step in to assist Rowena and her aunt on their quest, dangerous and mysterious men in brown coats and hats appear in Glastonbury. They are also searching for the lost Abbey treasure. It’s a race against time as the mysterious ‘Brown Coats’ seem to always be one step ahead of them. The Society finds more clues, treasures, letters, and holy secrets. Will they discover who the ‘Brown Coats’ are and why they are after the treasures? Can Harry convince marriage wary Rowena to trust in love and marry him?
Did I like it ?
Kind of. Interesting story. Hist-fic, the stuff I prefer to read. Interesting characters, a bit of suspense. Kind of a cliffhanger. This is book one in a series.
What I didn’t like ?
I would honestly love to give the book more stars, but, and this is a giant but. There are just TOO much sex scenes in it. One even two would be OK. Would even make sense for the story. But the constant carnal encounters between the two MCs. It just looks like the author run out of ideas and needed something to fill up the pages.
Would I recommend it ?
Without the sex scenes ? No question.
Unfortunately, they are there. 3 stars, which means I still like it.
