Fate has not been kind to Lady Calista Holland, née Calista Chance. For nearly six years she's been entrapped in her own personal hell with the only ray of light being the son her dreadful marriage had created. Now she's had to send him away for his own protection. Stuck at an inn due to inclement weather, she desperately needs to get back to her home or the punishment her husband will inflict upon her will be unbearable. To make matters worse, the man who courted her nearly six years ago, the man who could have saved her from this horrible life, is residing at the same establishment. Who says fate doesn't have a wicked sense of humor?
Just when Callista thought fate could be no crueler, it reared its ugly head once more as if to mock her...
"You say you are reliving the same day?" he said as he peered into her ears with a pointed tool. "Every day?"
"Yes," She swiveled to face him. "Have you ever heard of such a thing before?"
"I have not, unfortunately."
What happens when a proper English Lady relives the same day over and over with no one but herself remembering what happened the same day before? Why mayhem, madness, and humorously unladylike behavior, of course.
It was fun watching Callista lose her wits as the alternate title of "Lady Gone Wild" came to mind. I loved seeing her grow as an individual while we learned what exactly happened to her six years ago. Likewise, Tacitus Ceasar Everard, the ninth Marquess of Dare, was fun to watch as he interacted with Callista. She has a way of undoing him as she never seems to do what he expects, thereby keeping him on his toes.
Overall, I gave this one 4 out of 5 roses. It was a lighthearted, fun, and sexy romp that had a happy ending. It is also the second book in the Twist series, but it can be read as a standalone. I haven't yet read the first book., but I didn't feel lost at all. On the Lisarenee Romance Rating Scale, this one earned a STEAM rating - too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed.
