Book 1 of the Montclair Chronicles
Regency Historical Romance
Rating: 5 Cups
Mademoiselle Emeliese Alexander does not need to worry about money; her family is quite wealthy. She is on her way to be with the man she loves, unaware that other plans were made.
Robert, ‘Robbie,’ Montclair, the Earl of Ashford is anxious for Emmy to arrive. He deeply loves her and will do anything to make her happy. Unfortunately, someone else chooses differently.
As Emmy goes to meet Robbie’s family, she is ecstatic to know she will soon be united with her love. Robert Montclair’s father does not approve of Emmy. Emmy soon discovers what a monster he is when she is kidnapped and sold into slavery. Robbie is shocked to learn that Emmy is dead. He is beside himself. There will never be another love like Emmy. When Emmy is able to confide in someone about her situation, she is finally reunited with Robbie. They are shocked with the circumstances that happened, and intend to make sure they will make their love last no matter what they face.
His Obsession is an absolutely compelling read. Emmy is a dynamic character who keeps the reader suspended with each turn of the page. I could feel her anguish and despair, as well as Robbie’s over his loss when he thought she was dead. Robbie’s father is an arrogant ugly man. He needs to be horsewhipped. Rita Bay creates a story that leaves a lasting impression. She molds strong characters, and vigorous dialogue that spellbinds the reader. This well-crafted story is one that this reader could read again and again. Not only is this story extremely well-worth the read but truly endearing until the end.
