    30 Slow burn starsLord Kit Cavanaugh is too good to be true He's handsome rich and can do no wrong Miss Sylvia Buckleberry is the Vicar's daughter and the administrator over a charity school for poor childrenThere is a saboteur and a small mystery that needs solving But that was the only interesting thing in the plot The characters were nice enough but completely bland and un memorable25 stars rounded up

    Series The Cavanaughs #2Publication Date 43019Number of Pages 384Kit Cavanaugh first met Miss Sylvia Buckleberry I love her name in the first book of the series The Designs of Lord Randolph Cavanaugh and it was not an auspicious beginning for them She treated him coldly and it seemed that she couldn’t wait to get away from him So while she intrigued him he left his brother Rand’s wedding never expecting to see her againKit spent some time with his older brother Ryder and his family and then left for Bristol where he is starting a yacht building business He rented the perfect warehouse for building the yachts and all he had to do was to wait for the charity that was using the warehouse to vacate the premises He wondered what sort of charity was using the warehouseThe next day an absolute force of nature in the guise of Miss Sylvia Buckleberry accosted Kit in his offices She was uite different from the cold aloof woman he met at Rand’s wedding She demanded his help in relocating her charity school since he is the cause of them having to move Kit had no idea it was a school he was dislocating and he was anxious to help with the relocation the costs – whatever was needed Sylvia couldn’t believe this was the same man whose reputation she had so much about beforeKit and his partner Wayland Cobworth can hardly wait to begin work Bristol’s shipbuilding industry is floundering since the invention of iron ships Luckily for Kit and Wayland that leaves the finest craftsmen available for hire They are fortunate to put together a top notch crew including a secretary that keeps it all togetherKit and Sylvia spend and time together because of the school Who knew that a charity school could have an enemy? But it does Then again who knew that a new business providing many jobs to an impoverished community would have enemies? But it does Add to that – someone is watching Sylvia Are they all related? The road to romance is fairly smooth with each person coming to know and respect who the other really is It is the danger to the school the business and Sylvia that moves the plot along The mysteries are interesting and you won’t know who the villain is until the solution presents itself This is an excellently written book with interesting and compelling characters to whom you can totally relate I really liked Kit who is not at all what his reputation makes him out to be I also admired Sylvia who set a goal for her life and then went about making it happen She’s uite an admirable heroineI definitely recommend this book I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book All thoughts and opinions are my own

    Terrific book Now that his brother's wedding was over Kit was ready to head for Bristol and get his dream of Cavanaugh Yachts launched All he needed was the right location and the craftsmen with the right skills and he would be set The site was uickly found; all he needed to do was wait for the charity using it to vacate the premisesDaughter of a vicar Sylvia found her calling in providing education for the sons of Bristol dockworkers She and her team worked hard for the last two years and had just started seeing real progress in their efforts when she found out that they were losing their buildingI loved both Kit and Sylvia both of whom made brief appearances in the previous book The Designs of Lord Randolph Cavanaugh Kit had uite the reputation around London as a rake What no one knew was that it was a carefully cultivated reputation designed to discourage his manipulative mother's matchmaking aspirations Having been a witness to his parents' marriage Kit had no desire to marry In reality Kit was an honorable kind and hardworking man Sylvia gave up on the idea of marriage for herself long ago after she endured one season of the glitz and glamour She is intelligent determined and kind Both of them have dreams that they are passionate aboutI enjoyed the development of the relationship between Kit and Sylvia Their first encounter was at Rand's wedding where they were partnered during the wedding celebration Kit was intrigued by Sylvia but she treated him coldly so he tried to put her out of his mind Sylvia struggled to maintain her distance from the rake she was inexplicably drawn to and had crushed on two years earlier She never expected to see him again and was dismayed to find he had leased the building that housed her school I loved their next meeting as Sylvia burst into Kit's office and harangued him about dislocating her school Kit was stunned by the difference in Sylvia and intrigued all over again I loved how he took the wind out of her sails by merely agreeing to help her find a new spot for her school As they spent time together looking for a new location both Kit and Sylvia discovered that their previous beliefs about each other were all wrong I enjoyed seeing them get to know and respect who the other is and the realization of how much alike they are I liked Kit's move into courting Sylvia though it took a bit for her to realize what he was doing As the trouble that stalked them heated up I loved Kit's protectiveness of Sylvia which added to his growing feelings for her Sylvia was also protective of Kit and I enjoyed how she did things that would help him But it took the danger at the end for them to realize just how deep their feelings for each other wereThe suspense in the story was good There were attacks on the business attacks on the school and Sylvia's persistent feelings of being watched Were these incidents related or were they separate issues? There were multiple twists and turns as each event was dealt with revealing some interesting motivations and solutions The final confrontation had me on the edge of my seat until it was all overThe secondary characters gave added depth to the story helping both Kit and Sylvia shine The boys that Sylvia teaches and their families showed another side of Victorian England The advances in the technology of boat building changed the economy of Bristol and this book showed the effects on the ordinary people The struggles to take care of their families was vividly portrayed I liked Sylvia's compassion and practical ways of helping and dealing with problems Her connection with her students and their families also played a big part in helping Kit get his business started I loved Kit's practical methods of running his business and his hands on approach It was especially fun to see the variety of reactions I loved the assorted boys and their parts in the book Each one has a uniue personality and history There were some pretty funny situations that they got involved in but they also played a huge part in the final confrontation I liked the appearances of the previous couples in the series and their roles in moving the relationship along

    Somebody save me from these romance novels that don’t feature any passion I don’t want pleasant I want intensity

    Overall I enjoyed this latest edition to the world of the Cynsters; they’re comforting and I love returning back to this world However this story was short and with less action Also uite repetitive; we get it Kit you’re attracted to this spunky Sylvia I feel like this would have been better suited as a short story so she could have cut it down uite a bit

    35 stars rounded upThis book starts shortly after the ending of the previous book The Designs of Lord Randolph Cavanaugh Lord Kit Cavanaugh has moved to Bristol to start a new venture Cavanaugh Yachts He has rented a warehouse and plans to open shop immediately along with his friend and business partner Wayland They want to take occupancy immediately but learn a charity has been using it and they need a few days to vacateSylvia Buckleberry learns from the officers of the Dock Company that they have rented the warehouse that she uses for a school and that she must vacate immediately She knew that it was a possibly that they would lose the space but with the decline in shipbuilding she never really thought it would happen She tries to find another space for the school but as they haven't the money in the budget for rent she is faced with the real possibility of having to close She is upset and barges into Kit's office and rages at him Kit is stunned and intrigued the Sylvia he met at his brother Rand's wedding was an ice ueen and nothing like this fiery woman He waits until she is finished with her rant and offers to help find another place for the school even offering to pay the rent Sylvia is surprised she has always harbored a secret crush for Kit but his reputation was one of a rake and she refused to fall prey and kept her distance from him But this Kit is nothing like the rumors she heard and she wonders if she misjudged him They work together and find a place for the school and Kit goes about setting up his new business but he is drawn to Sylvia and makes excuses to see her When the school is threatened Kit immediately comes to her aid and when someone sabotages his workshop he wonders if the events are related and vows to protect Sylvia They again work together to find the villain or villains and a bond develops between them Kit decides that Sylvia is the woman for him but needs to take things slowly Sylvia finds herself falling for Kit all over again but doesn't know if he feels the same and is not sure if she can trust her instincts as they were so wrong before But when Sylvia's life is in peril nothing will stop Kit from saving the woman he loves and he will prove once and for all that she is meant for himThe ending is fantastic and I liked that Kit was determined to win Sylvia honorably but a bit steam would not have been amiss This was a good story but it was wordy dragged a bit and some of it was down right dull and boring add to that the misuse of his honorific which happened in the last book as well and this was a fair to middling story at best good but just not great This is the second book in the Cavanaugh series but it could easily be read as standalone titleI am voluntarily leaving a review for an e arc that was provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher
