    Virginia Boylan

    Great story with a charming, spunky heroine whose overconfidence gets her into trouble over and over, giving the charming hero plenty of chances to learn he s not who he thinks he is as he rescues her from herself I love how both of them learn and grow through this story until they re able to see and do what s best for themselves and each other.

    This book was absolutely amazing It had me hooked from the beginning to the end The dialogues were perfect The characters were blended perfectly There wasn t a moment where I was bored I am really surprised by Valerie Bowman s writing skills I can t wait to read the next book I highly recommend everyone to read this book You won t be disappointed


    Recreational Reader

    4.5 Stars This is a witty and fun romp and I would have rated it 5 stars but for the fact that the ending wasn t quite up to par as I felt the changes in the character of the heroine were too extreme to be believable That being said I enjoyed the book and anyone who likes the Wallflower series by Lisa Kleypas should give it a try.


    Moey17

    I LOVED this So charmingly entertaining The leads were fantastic, Annie a girl who wears her heart on her sleeve, and Jordan, so dashing but in essence just a noble good man Their romance was lovely, it was lighthearted and sweet I can t wait for from this author, such fun


    Arec Rain

    What a fantastic novel It has been a long time since a book, much less a romance one, has so completely enthralled me It was witty and believable and I found myself invested in the characters Definitely not one to pass up if you prefer a good historical romance.


    Mary

    I loved this book even than the first Annie is fun Jordan is sexy, and their banter kept me turning the pages This book definitely lived up to Ms Bowman s tagline of writing RACY REGENCY ROMPS.
