BEGUILING THE BARRISTER
The hard-won happy ever after in this second book of Soliman’s Forsters series is a joy to behold, as the hero overcomes his reluctance to share his feelings with the adventurous heroine. They’re emotionally bound together, and she aids him in his quest for justice.
Lady Felicity Forster — known as Flick to family and friends — decides she is going to marry her neighbor, Darius Grantley. She is 11, and he is 16. As they mature, she’s committed to making him fall in love with her. She’s unaware that Darius shares her feelings but is afraid to show them due to their difference in social status. Darius is now a barrister fighting cases for the downtrodden. Since he is somewhat successful, he’s called upon to defend two sons of the peerage. It’s a high-profile case, plagued by attempted bribes and threats against Flick’s family. Winning would mean appointment to the King’s Counsel and enough money and status to wed Felicity.
