An Improper Encounter is book three in the Macalisters by Erica Taylor. These stories from yesteryear are a delightful and much welcome change to my reading regime. A talent with the words, Erica Taylor can certainly keep a reader captivated and eager for more. The story was complete, with characters that were engaging and enigmatic, with personalities and desires not commonly norm for the era. I love reading about a more risque character, and Lady Sarah Hartford is all that, and more. Her and William embarked on an intensely mysterious love affair, while hiding their true identities. If that didn’t get your blood flowing, then something is wrong. The William disappears, only to reappear months later.
Such a delicious story, shrouded in mystery, lies and deception. Heartbreaking decisions, secrecy and a bone deep connection has them struggling to keep afloat. A plethora of emotions were wrenched from me. Suspenseful right until the end, I was entranced with the characters and the context it was written in. A mystifying tale that would suit most readers. 4 stars
