Historical Review: Let Love Find You [Hardcover]

I've finished "Let Love Find You" by Johanna Lindsey.

Product Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Johanna Lindsey’s dazzling new tale of a desperate debutante whose family hires an innovative matchmaker to ensure her marriage features one of Lindsey’s most beloved heroines: Amanda Locke, sister to dashing Rafe Locke from the “elegantly sensual” (Booklist) The Devil Who Tamed Her!

London society has its very own Cupid. Renowned horse breeder and occasional matchmaker Devin Baldwin pairs eligible young ladies with suitable gentlemen based on his theory of animal magnetism. Unafraid of ruffling the ton’s feathers, this darkly handsome Cupid doles out tips for bettering one’s chances of meeting a mate that are as pointed as the love legend’s sharpest arrows!

Lovely Amanda Locke, the daughter of a duke, is everything a nobleman could desire, yet she enters her third Season still searching for a match. Gossipmongers’ tongues are wagging, and her mystified family is considering drastic measures to find her a husband. But the insufferable advice of this Cupid fellow is the last thing Amanda wants.

When an earl passionate about horses becomes the target of her husband hunt, Amanda knows it’s time to overcome her fear of riding. With her sister-in-law Ophelia hastening the romance along by arranging riding lessons, Amanda is soon taking instruction from infuriating Devin Baldwin. Astonishingly, in her daily encounters with Devin — who treats her as an ordinary young woman, not a prize to be won at the marriage mart — Amanda experiences passion for the first time. Now, her search for a match takes her in an unexpected direction as she finds herself falling in love with Cupid himself.

My Review:

Wow it's been awhile since I've read a Johanna Lindsey book so I was very happy to have the opportunity to read "Let Love Find You".

I highly recommend reading this book if you love a sexy alpha male who enjoys making love connections between his clients, has a way with horses and a strong willed heroine.

Devin Baldwin (aka Cupid) is a renowned horsebreeder and occasional matchmaker between young eligible women and suitable gentlemen.  This nickname irritates Devin to no end!

Amanda Locke is very beautiful and charming but hasn't found true long for two Seasons.  She finally hopes to find one in her Third Season.

She is interested in two men but to catch the eye of one she needs to overcome her fear of riding a horse.  During her childhood she fell off a horse and hasn't been on one ever since.  This isn't an easy task for Devlin since he's not a patient man and he's very honest and tells her how it is.  I'm glad how he kept pushing her and she finally overcame her fear of riding and enjoyed it again.

The banter between these two was very hot, sexy, spicy and witty.  Every time these two meet I was just waiting for them to jump each other and rip each others clothes off.  It was quite a competition between them to see who would reign on top.
