I read and loved this book in 2018 but in honor of the third and final book in the fantastic Bareknuckle Bastards series releasing today (Daring and the Duke), I have decided to publish my 5 star review of the first book in the series.
This feminist take on an old-school romance trope features Seraphina, a woman outcast by society who loves to indulge in sex and alcohol. Her personality was a bit too toxic for me to fall in love but the writing was wonderful and the sex was hot.
A strong, uncompromising daughter of an earl and a tough, merciless boxer from Covet Garden find that they may be a better match for each other than they thought in this beautiful novel by Sarah Maclean.
Read my full review here, and read why Hattie is one of my favorite romance novel heroines.
