BLOG TOUR & MY RECENT RELEASE REVIEW of
How To Ruin Your Reputation in 10 Days
Ladies of Passion #2
Published by Entangled Publishing
Publication Date: June 5th 2017
In 1814 London, England, a lady is defined as a demure, delicate flower. Miss Francine Annesley is not that lady. If men were like plants, she would have a garden of admirers to choose from instead of the thorn in her side since childhood, Julian Beckwith. But she would make an even worse nun than she does a lady, which will be her fate if she can’t dig up a husband before the Season ends. However, Julian is not an option.
With only ten short days left in the Season, Francine doesn’t have time to waste on petty squabbles or knee-weakening kisses, even if Julian’s offer to fulfill her every wish rouses her curiosity. It seems men are more complicated than plants. Too bad love bloomed at the most inconvenient of times…
This book is written mostly in first person and I am not overly fond of this writing style. I prefer an overall picture rather than the thoughts of an individual character.
That being said, the characters are interesting and the storyline isn’t a bad one, just the writing style was not to my liking.
This is my first time reading this author’s work and although I was not overly impressed with this one I will give her another chance.
I gave this book 3.5 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 2.5 of 5 flames.
There isn’t a great deal of sexual interaction but what is there is somewhat heated.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book to read from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
About Harmony Williams:
Harmony Williams has been living vicariously in Regency-era England since she discovered Jane Austen. Since time machines don’t yet exist, she’s had to make do with books—fictional and non-fictional. On the rare occasion she doesn’t have her nose stuck in a book, she likes to drink tea and spend time with her 90-lb lapdog. A feminist, she writes stories about strong women and the men who support them as equals.
