Captivated by a Lady's Charm by Christi Caldwell Review




In need of a wife…

Christian Villiers, the Marquess of St. Cyr, despises the role he’s been cast into as fortune hunter but requires the funds to keep his marquisate solvent. Yet, the sins of his past cloud his future, preventing him from seeing beyond his fateful actions at the Battle of Toulouse. For he knows inevitably it will catch up with him, and everyone will remember his actions on the battlefield that cost so many so much—particularly his best friend.

In want of a husband…

Lady Prudence Tidemore’s life is plagued by familial scandals which makes her own marital prospects rather grim. Surely there is one gentleman of the ton who can look past her family and see just her and all she has to offer?

When Prudence runs into Christian on a London street, the charming, roguish gentleman immediately captures her attention. But then a chance meeting becomes a waltz, and now…

A Perfect Match…

All she must do is convince Christian to forget the cold requirements he has for his future marchioness. But the demons in his past prevent him from turning himself over to love. One thing is certain, Prudence wants the marquess and is determined to have him in her life, now and forever. It’s just a matter of convincing Christian he wants the same.



So I was super excited to get stuck into the new Christi Caldwell’s new book Captivated by a Lady’s Charm, and it sure didn’t disappoint me in any way.
This is the story of Christian and Prudence (aka Pru). Christian Villiers, the Marquess of St. Cyr is cast into a role that he hates! To keep his title solvent he has to marry a woman for her fortune.
Lady Prudence Tidemore family seems to attract scandals and but Pru still hopes that there will be one man out there that will look past her family and see her for who she is! And that she could find the love that her siblings seem to have found.
But nothing runs smoothly for this pair. From Pru’s families dislike of Christian, Christian’s determination to have a cold and restrictive marriage to someone from the pasts is determined and to destroy them and their reputations. You are left wondering if Christian and Pru can overcome all these hurdles and find their way back to each other.
Christi Caldwell has managed to do it again! She has managed to reduce me into a complete pile of mush, just by reading this book! This book has simply everything, envy, determination, realization, regret and betrayal. The morals are just flowing out of this book, and by the time I finished reading the story, I had this warm feeling of hope and love.
So let’s get to the basics of this book; the writing is smooth, the plot is well researched and the characters are amazing! The only question I am left with is does the Duke of Blackthorne get his own book, though I am not sure he deserves it at this point.
Overall I found Captivated by a Lady’s Charm an amazing book, which I loved very much! And I give if a well-deserved 10 out of 10!

While sitting in her graduate school apartment at the University of Connecticut, Christi decided to set aside her notes and try her hand at writing romance. She believes the most perfect heroes and heroines have imperfections and she rather enjoys tormenting them before crafting a well-deserved happily ever after! 

Christi makes her home in Southern Connecticut where she spends her time writing, chasing around her feisty six-year old son and caring for her twin princesses in training!
