BLOG TOUR: Breathless by Celeste Bradley and Susan Donovan ~ Review + Giveaway

I have Celeste Bradley's and Susan Donovan's newest book Breathless on the blog today as part of the Breathless blog tour.

Book Blurb: In Breathless, bestselling authors Celeste Bradley and Susan Donovan will sweep you away—across continents and centuries, combining the best of all worlds in one unforgettable romantic saga.

She was “the Swan.” London’s premiere courtesan. Men want to be with her. Women loathe her success and yet admire her beauty, her riches, her independence. But when the jealous wife of her lover moves to have the Swan banished from her home on the high seas, she winds up crashed against Spain’s rocky coast with no shoes, no clothes—and no name. Taken in by a tortured, sensuous man known as The Artist, the Swan comes to know the woman she wants to be—her artist’s siren.

When Art Professor Brenna Anderson is in danger of losing her post at Harvard, the rule-following, prim professor is at a loss of how to salvage the shreds of her life. But when a new painting in the mysterious Siren collection is discovered in a dusty old house in France, Brenna does the unthinkable—hops on a plane to uncover the identity of the beautiful, enigmatic woman who is the subject of the paintings.

There’s just one hitch—the frustrating, irritating, bold and beautiful art hunter Fitch Wilder is also looking for the Siren. He’s been a thorn in Brenna’s professional side for years, but when their individual quests lead them to team up despite being enemies, a whole new sumptuous world of art and culture opens up for the two of them. And with it, they enter a realm of passion and love…

My Review: When I first read the blurb for this book it sounded really interesting. What I didn't know is that it's a sequel and I haven't read the first book in the series. However, I don't think you need to read the first book to enjoy this one. There are two romances in this book but I was more invested in the modern day one. I did like this book and I think I'm going to pick up the first book and read it.

Rating: ★★★★☆
