Book Review: Bombshell by Sarah MacLean

Bombshell (Hell's Belles) by Sarah MacLean 
Genre: Adult Fiction (Historical Romance)
Date Published: August 24, 2021
Publisher: Avon

New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean returns with a blazingly sexy, unapologetically feminist new series, Hell’s Belles, beginning with a bold, bombshell of a heroine, able to dispose of a scoundrel—or seduce one—in a single night.

After years of living as London’s brightest scandal, Lady Sesily Talbot has embraced the reputation and the freedom that comes with the title. No one looks twice when she lures a gentleman into the dark gardens beyond a Mayfair ballroom…and no one realizes those trysts are not what they seem.

No one, that is, but Caleb Calhoun, who has spent years trying not to notice his best friend’s beautiful, brash, brilliant sister. If you ask him, he’s been a saint about it, considering the way she looks at him…and the way she talks to him…and the way she’d felt in his arms during their one ill-advised kiss.

Except someone has to keep Sesily from tumbling into trouble during her dangerous late-night escapades, and maybe close proximity is exactly what Caleb needs to get this infuriating, outrageous woman out of his system. But now Caleb is the one in trouble, because he’s fast realizing that Sesily isn’t for forgetting…she’s forever. And forever isn’t something he can risk.

Bombshell is the first book in the Hell's Belle's series by Sarah MacLean. Sesily is another one of the infamous Talbot sisters. I love these ladies. She's brave, spunky, and doesn't give two flips what society thinks of her. Her group of friends are ... I want friends like these! They are like the best kind of girl power mafia. And, they're super funny too. I hope they get their own books too. Poor Caleb didn't have a chance. No way would she give him one. But, he tried to resist anyway, making for some fun banter. Like always with this author, these characters are well fleshed out. You truly get to know them as you read, and there's always more to them than meets the eye.

Sarah MacLean grew up in Rhode Island, obsessed with historical romance and bemoaning the fact that she was born far too late for her own season. Her love of all things historical helped to earn her degrees from Smith College and Harvard University before she finally set pen to paper and wrote her first book.

Sarah now lives in New York City with her husband, baby daughter, their dog, and a ridiculously large collection of romance novels. She loves to hear from readers. Please visit her at
