For as long as Prudence can remember, it has been understood that her sister will one day wed the eldest son of their nearest neighbor. Such an alliance will benefit both families and bring a great deal of joy to all parents involved.
Unfortunately, Prudence has never been able to feel as joyful. She believes her sister is mad to consider marrying a man she hardly knows, even if he will one day make her a countess. Titles and wealth shouldn’t factor into matters of the heart, and as an aspiring romance novelist, Prudence cannot fathom how anyone could even think of settling for less than love. She certainly wouldn’t, and she doesn’t want her sister to either.
Unable to stand by and do nothing, Prudence sets out to help the awkward couple discover the best in each other with the hope that they will eventually find love. What she neglected to foresee, however, was the possibility that she might fall in love with Lord Knave herself.
I loved this book from beginning to end! It was such an enjoyable read. The characters were wonderful! Prudence is a delight! She is honest and genuine and a breath of fresh air. I loved her relationship with Brand. (Now there is a swoon worthy man!) Some of their interactions just made me laugh. She certainly kept him on his toes. I really liked Sophia, too. She is so different than Prudence, yet so kind and good. I wanted all of them to be happy. I was so curious to see how everything would work out. It was perfect!
I received a complimentary copy of the book, which I voluntarily reviewed. I have given my honest opinion.
I enjoyed this entertaining Regency romance! Prudence is so likeable with her passionate and vibrant personality, and even though she needs to take a backseat to Sophia for the time being, she understands and supports her sister. Sophia seems a bit flat at first, but I love how the deeper layers of her character are revealed. Brand was a great hero, conflicted and reluctant but willing to do his duty for his family. His interactions with Prudence are full of humor and teasing, which is my favorite type of relationship! I was filled with anticipation as their affection grew deeper yet they had to hold back for Sophia’s sake and I couldn’t wait to see how the situation resolved with a happy ending for all. There will be two more books in the series, one for Sophia and one for Prudence’s friend Abby which I’m looking forward to reading!
This story was so cute! And original. I loved ever second of it. I couldn’t put it down until I finished it! I loved the Characters and the energy behind the words. I absolutely loved this book!
I enjoyed this story. Obviously we know going in that the sister cannot possibly end up with her intended but as I started reading the book I wondered how it would come about that the right sister would end up with the hero without somebody just being an awful person. But no one is an awful person in this book. Even those we don’t initially care for turn out to be okay. (Well I guess the exception would be the farmer that is so insistent in his pursuing of Prudence. Never did grow to like him).
Prudence and Knave are both fun characters and I enjoyed their interactions. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
And this cover is beautiful!
