His Lady Peregrine (The Love Birds Series Book 5) by Ruth J. Hartman


Print Length: 83 pages
Publisher: EsKape Press (March 17, 2015)

From Goodreads.com: 
Percy Radcliff has gone mad. At least that’s what his family thinks. Simply because he adores birds to distraction. If only there were someone with whom he could share his great love. Perhaps he’s found her in the woman he happened upon at the Bird Sanctuary? 

Widow Georgiana Ollerton has finally met her match. In love and in admiration for everything avian. Percy, though odd, has a sensual quality Georgiana can’t quite explain but definitely wants to explore further. 

The problem is Percy has once again gotten himself into a pickle. How is he to romance his lovely Georgiana when another woman believes him to be her long-lost husband? Will Percy be able to disentangle himself from the other woman before he loses Georgiana for good?

My Rating: 4 stars out of 5

I'm not even sure how much I can say about this novel without giving away too much! 

When I first read the synopsis of this story, I thought it would be something completely different than what it was. Instead, I got not only got to spend time with some of my favorite people (from the previous Lovebirds stories), but I also got to meet someone new and I got to hiss and growl at a character that I've grown to hate (they were horrible in the previous books, but this time around they were just downright malicious). 

I (as usual) loved Percy and all of his quirks, and I was happy to see him finally get his own story (although I not only wish it had been longer, but I also wish I could have been invited to the wedding). I also enjoyed getting to know Georgiana as well - as she was not only someone who would be a perfect addition to the current characters that we all know and love - but she is also Percy's match in every way. I do wish that she would have been the one to uncover things (again I'm trying to be as un-spoiling as possible), but the way things worked out in the end was satisfying enough that I cannot complain. 

Overall, this was one of those sweet, clean reads that Ruth is known for - and that I can't get enough of! However, I do feel inclined to say that even though this book is free and definitely well worth the read - some of the characters probably won't make much sense if you have not read the other books in this series first.
