Synopsis:

The woman who haunts his dreams

Secret agent Phil Cullen is upset when he discovers that the young woman he rescued from Mrs Newbody’s establishment has absconded from his housekeeper’s care without a word. Thinking he has been deceived, he resolves to forget about her… something easier said than done.

The man she wants to forget

Sophia Turner is horrified when she is duped into entering a notorious house of ill-repute. Then a handsome stranger comes to her aid. Desperate that no one learns of this scandalous episode, Sophia flees to the one friend she knows she can trust. With luck, she will never see her mysterious rescuer again.

But fate has other plans…

Months later, Phil is on the trail of an elusive French agent and Sophia is a respectable lady’s companion when fate again intervenes, taking their lives on a collision course.

Traitors, spies, and shameful family secrets - will these bring Sophia and Phil together… or drive them apart?


Review:


I enjoyed A Bachelor's Pledge so much because there was an enthralling and engaging plot, with so much mystery and intrigue throughout the story that kept me glued at my reader, everything set up during my favourite historical period.

Phil meets Sophia in a brothel and he feels the need to help her, so he helps her to run away and he brings her at his home. Sophia doesn't trust her saviour's good faith so she decides to run away again, but that won't be their only encounter because fate has other plans for them.

I loved Sophia and Phil's both characters, but if I've to choose my favourite is our heroine. Sophia is a smart, strong woman who doesn't accept any man's command. I adored how their relationship grows and evolves slowly, they are so cute when they can't stop thinking about each other even when they are apart.

This was the first book written by Penny Hampson I've read but I am eagerly looking forward to read her previous and future works.
