Breathless By Celeste Bradley



I was given an ARC in exchange of an honest review.

A sensuous, delightful romantic women's fiction novel from New York Times bestselling authors Celeste Bradley and Susan Donovan!

She was "the Swan." London's premiere courtesan. Men want to be with her. Women loathe her success and yet admire her beauty, her riches, her independence. But when the jealous wife of her lover moves to have the Swan banished from her home on the high seas, she winds up crashed against Spain's rocky coast with no shoes, no clothes-and no name. Taken in by a tortured, sensuous man known as The Artist, the Swan comes to know the woman she wants to be—her artist's siren.

When Art Professor Brenna Anderson is in danger of losing her post at Harvard, the rule-following, prim professor is at a loss of how to salvage the shreds of her life. But when a new painting in the mysterious Siren collection is discovered in a dusty old house in France, Brenna does the unthinkable—hops on a plane to uncover the identity of the beautiful, enigmatic woman who is the subject of the paintings.

There's just one hitch—the frustrating, irritating, bold and beautiful art hunter, Fitch Wilder, is also looking for the Siren. He's been a thorn in Brenna's professional side for years, but when their individual quests lead them to team up despite being enemies, a whole new sumptuous world of art and culture opens up for the two of them. And with it, they enter a realm of passion and love…

I´m so lucky, lately all my requests at Netgalley have been accepted, which means I get to read my favorite writers for free. Can get it better than that? Yes, it can, and it does. Because, even if it is one of your favorite authors, it does not means you like the book. But, I´m that lucky, not only I get to read them for free, I also enjoyed them. And Breathless, its no different. I like it very much.

Not only was well written, its plot didn´t have holes.  Even with several small intertwined stories, it was never confusing.

The Swan and her Artiste certainly deserved more time together, but the time that they did have together was beautifullly enjoyed.

Brenna and Fitch were perfect together, and their search made them found not only the Swan´s real history, but theirselves. as individuals and as a couple. Whatelse could they ask for?

Eu tenho tido muita sorte, ultimamente todos os meus pedidos na Netgalley foram aceitos, o que significa que eu posso ler meus escritores favoritos de graça. Pode ficar melhor que isso? Sim, pode e fica. Porque, mesmo que seja um dos seus autores favoritos, isso não significa que você gosta do livro. Mas, eu estou com muita sorte, não só eu posso lê-los de graça, eu também gostei dos livros. E Breathless, não é diferente. Eu gostei muito, amei.



Não só foi bem escrito, como também seu enredo não tinha buracos. Mesmo com várias pequenas histórias entrelaçadas, nunca ficou confuso.



O Cisne e seu Artista certamente mereciam mais tempo juntos, mas o tempo que eles tiveram foi maravilhosamente apreciado.



Brenna e Fitch são perfeitos, e sua busca os fez encontrar não apenas a história real do Cisne, mas também a si mesmos. como indivíduos e como casal. O que mais eles poderiam pedir?
