    They are an unlikely pair.

    We met Georgette and Hugo in the previous book. Now, Georgette decides to take her destiny into her own hands and seek for the same treasure that her brother is seeking. Georgette decides to dress as a boy and head to the area where her brother is looking. Hugo is a friend to Benedict and when he spies Georgette dressed as a boy, he takes her in hand. She doesn't want help from anyone. She will soon be 21 and wants to make her own way. Along the way, Hugo and Georgette discover so many things about each other and themselves. They are an unlikely pairing. She is a shop owner's daughter and he is the younger son of a duke. I like that they are not "equal" socially. It makes the story more interesting. Neither of them care what society thinks, but can a girl who likes fairy tales love a man who likes to plan everything?

    Lovely historical romance, not much of a treasure

    I won a copy of this book through a giveaway on the author's Facebook page. Also, it is the second half of a duo and I think it could be read as a standalone, but reading the first book helps you understand some of the backstory to this book. This is a lovely Regency romance. Georgette, the heroine, is an independent, smart, and feisty heroine. Hugo, the hero, is a physician who is trying to get funding to set up a hospital to help people from all classes in London. When Georgette decides to find her brother and join him in his hunt for lost gold coins in hope of gaining the reward money for finding it, Hugo goes after her to make sure she is okay and eventually joins her for his own purposes. Both Georgette and Hugo were well-developed and likable characters. Georgette is the perfect combination of practical (the way she helps with whatever is needed) and whimsical. Hugo is an academic with a desire to make the world a better place. The author does a good job of creating a backstory that explains exactly how Georgette and Hugo came to be the way they are which is always nice. As far as the romance and development of the relationship, that was also well done. I love how Hugo observes Georgette and really knows her needs and desires. Hugo’s definition of love, including ‘putting down a book for one’s companion when one only wants to read’, is swoon-worthy. They’re very sweet together and I found the HEA very satisfying. The only small problem I had with the book is that I would have loved the treasure hunting aspect to be more front and center. Maybe it’s the mystery lover in me, but I would have liked there to have been more clues and more searching. Instead that storyline takes a backseat to Hugo’s acting as a town doctor. I enjoyed that storyline, but would have liked to have seen it as an addition to the treasure seeking storyline instead of the main storyline. Overall I found this a very enjoyable read and would recommend it to any fans of historical romance.

    wonderful romance

    A wonderful read! Georgette and Hugo have the perfect amount of sexual tension as they traipse through England on Georgette's quest for gold. The adventure leads to a bit subterfuge while they deny their obvious attraction to one another, even as the mysteries encountered threaten their very beings. They separate thinking it's best for each other's dreams, but love demands a reunion--this time, they make plans for adventure and a future together.

    Delightfully seduces and thrills.

    What's a girl to do when her world is rapidly closing in on itself? Seek out an adventure. Ms. Romain continues to blend bold adventure with suspenseful narratives and flamboyant characters. Georgette is a woman with few prospects in an ever changing climate. Hugo has always followed his heart despite opposition and lack of funds. Brought together by a mysterious treasure and an ever growing attraction, this duo of treasure seekers are in for the ride of their lives. With never ending surprises, pockets of danger and rapidly building temptations Passion Favors the Bold delightfully seduces and thrills from start to finish.
