leaving him feeling anything but sensible Harriet is about to steal not only his heart but uite possibly the keys to the Roxley fortuneWhat I LikedWhat a fabulous historical romance novel I wasn t sure what to expect with this novel in all honesty I hadn t read the summary in a very long time I reuested this book months ago and downloaded it months ago I ve now read this book in December so I had no idea what this book was about So my expectations were fairly low if existent at all for this bookI was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this book Harriet and Roxley the non romance plot the humor everything was wonderful There was a slow start but the plot warmed up and took off I didn t expect so much from a historical romance novel Some might be put off by the amount of this book that ISN T romance but I love that Let me talk about the romance Harriet and Roxley have a history They shared a very passionate kiss and then some time after that a memorable night together in a garden Months later neither can forget either event or each other But Roxley is in dire straits and is blackmailed into marrying a merchant s daughter in order to save his family s fortune and his good name as the Earl of RoxleyHarriet of course will have none of that When she finally thinks that she will be reunited with Roxley after so many months she is crushed at first to learn the hard way that Roxley will be marrying another Harriet is not so easily deterred She puts her nose and herself right into the thick of things I love this about Harriet she is bold but not in the typical way that you might find in historical romance novels She also isn t a simpering ninny Good for herShe and Roxley are so perfect for each other and they know it and it takes than half the book for the two of them to finally realize that they can be together Both of them find out that the merchant and his merchant aren t as honest as they appear and that is when things go downhill Harriet isn t safe Roxley s aunts aren t safe and the mysterious diamonds aren t safe eitherThe romance is great in this book It doesn t exactly take the forefront in this novel though it might appear to do so There is so much going on Roxley trying to figure out who the merchant s daughter really is Roxley trying to find the family s lost diamonds Harriet trying to seduce Roxley back into loving her he never stopped loving her in case you wanted to know Harriet dodging the idiot Fieldgate Roxley and Harriet and the merchant s daughter prancing across the country to meet Roxley s aunt it s a very busy bookAnd might I mention the humor in this book Oh my goodness I loved how Boyle injects the occasional joke or hilarious scene every now and then I cannot remember the name but there is this one Lord somebody who ALWAYS says the funniest things at the perfect times And then there is Harriet with her five brothers and her ridiculous childhood with Roxley There were so many funny scenes in this book which I really appreciatedOverall I really liked this book I might actually read it again we ll see It has to be a fairly great book for me to re read it and this one was great Plus the romance was steamy when there were steamy scenes An all around great novelWhat I Did Not LikeOccasionally there was some dragging in the plot meaning it seemed like the story was stuck in one place for too long Like I ll admit the beginning is kind of slow The way the plot is set up with flashbacks placed every now and then in the story made the story stand still for some time The author needed readers to understand the past between Harriet and Roxley and there was a lot that had already happened before this novel startedOf course I never read the first two novels in this series not that one HAS TO so perhaps the background might have made sense had I read them I don t know if the events that transpired between Harriet and Roxley occurred during those booksBut that s okay about the drag because it s a small thing and it didn t detract from the overall story It was just a pacing issue but a tiny one nonethelessWould I Recommend ItYES I was very impressed with this novel and how much I really liked it This book isn t just a romance novel there is a fair amount of great humor scheming and action A perfect mixRating4 stars I really enjoyed this one This one will probably end up on my end of the year favorites list

characters If Wishes Were Earls

Ught would be most amiable is doing everything to turn his life and his heart upside down Harriet Hathaway had always seemed the most sensible girl he knew but now this siren of a stranger he's engaged to is leaving him feeling anything but sensible Harriet is about to steal not only his heart but uite possibly the keys to the Roxley fortu. I really wanted to enjoy this book but instead I found myself hating it The mystery of who was financially ruining Roxley was the only thing mildly entertaining in the story and thus saved the book from a one star rating Harriet and Roxley themselves were too wishy washy about their affections for one another that it dragged the story down into tedium I couldn t see other Society ladies doing the things that Harriet did to gain Roxley s attention no matter how meddlesome or how many brothers she might have had Don t even get me started on the wardrobe choices she wore because I don t believe that any marriage minded lady of uality would wear the colors that were reserved for the married women of Society when she herself was unmarried no matter how black her hair was I must admit I did enjoy the twist that was Lady Oriel which added to my star rating as well Overall I found this to be a weak link in the series and I m hesitant to continue with the series

    What a fun story The pace rarely lets up Harriet is delightful I know others have criticized her chasing Roxley but that keeps her in character She is not a missy miss She has always been forthright since the two of them met and she planted him a facerI could easily have read this in one day if I'd had nothing else to do
