Tempting Two (Scandalous Ballroom Encounters #3) by Victoria Vale

Title: Tempting Two
Author: Victoria Vale
Series: Scandalous Ballroom Encounters #3
Genre: Historical romance

Penelope Hunt is well on her way to becoming a spinster. When Colin Worthing courted her secretly for an entire season before making off with her virginity, he ensured that she could never make a good match … or put the pieces of her broken heart back together again. His duplicity has her convinced that men are not to be trusted, and that she would be foolish to bind herself in marriage to one for the rest of her life. Deciding that life as a spinster has its benefits, she vows to avoid matrimony and enjoy her life in any way that she can—the inheritance to be had on her twenty-fifth birthday will see her endowed to do just that.

This is one of those books where you don't have a favorite character because everyone seems to screw up things for the other. That being said, I hated the heroine the most. Sure, there's a reason/trauma for why she turned out to be so detached and cold but her actions were stupid and downright vindictive. However, the second half felt reasonable and content. And I finally made peace with Penelope (our heroine) for being compassionate towards the end.

Overall, one enjoyable read.
