Honor Sontag has always done the right thing. Plays by the rules, is fair, does what is expected of her. But when she is pushed too far, she flees her home in Connecticut and heads to England in search of her birth mother, and some much needed clarity. While there, she befriends her landlord’s family, especially the only male among the bunch, Martyn Mayfair. While sparks fly between Honor and Martyn, both hold back for different reasons. Martyn has been hurt in the past before, and Honor, well she is still legally married. Their romance is thrown other hurdles- Martyn’s stalker that happens to be Honor’s new boss, Martyn’s career as a hottie underwear model, and Honor’s secrets that she is keeping hidden from Martyn. Can Honor finally find her love and freedom in England? Or will always doing the right thing keep her from Martyn and a chance at true happiness?
Love and Freedom is a really sweet romance from Sue Moorcroft. I had a lot of fun reading the British terms and getting to know both Honor and Martyn. Honor is the perfect heroine- a good person with a big heart but riddled with flaws and confusion, not sure which way to turn. I thought the beginning was just a touch too slow, and I was a little hesitant about where the story would lead me. But after just a few chapters I was hooked, and there are some stunning bombshells that are dropped along the way that made my mouth drop open. This was a great romance with a lot of drama built in, and I think chick lit readers will appreciate the plot and the characters that are along for the ride.
