Publisher’s Description:

Finding a worthy husband should be simple for three beautiful debutantes in Regency London. But the Somerset sisters have a way of making it delightfully complicated . . .

Violet Somerset has always preferred a library to a ballroom, but to please her grandmother she agreed to one London season. With nothing to show for it but heartbreak, she’s reconciled to spinsterhood. Until a notorious rogue known as the Devil of Dare requests an introduction to her timid, gentle youngest sister, Hyacinth. Violet will do anything to stop the match—even if it means posing as Hyacinth herself .

Nicholas Balfour, the Earl of Dare, is enjoying the life of a rake far too much to take a wife. But he must keep his promise to his grandmother. He’ll simply choose the meekest bride he can find, install her at his estate, then carry on as before. Hyacinth sounds perfect—until he discovers that her sweet demeanor hides the tongue of a viper and the mind of a bluestocking . . .

As Violet’s ruse threatens to unravel, however, she may find the tables turned. Soon she may have no choice but to tolerate her handsome fiancée—or fall in love with him . . .

My Thoughts:

This book is a wonderful Regency read. It has everything this reader expects from Anna Bradley and more.

Nicholas Balfour, the Earl of Dare has promised his Grandmother that he will marry this season even though it’s the last thing he wants until he spies Hyacinth Somerset at a party where she is entertaining the other guests on the pianoforte. He calls on Miss Somerset the next day even though the two have yet to be properly introduced. Instead of Hyacinth he gets Violet, the slightly older bluestocking sister.

Violet engages in a ruse poising as Hyacinth thinking Nicholas will simply go away after encountering her eccentric ways. Nicholas is fooled into believing just that. But the Earl of Dare is not so easily frightened away.

The tables turned on her Violet finds herself drawn to the rogue and he to her.

But Nicholas still thinks she is Hyacinth.

How will this amusing, humorous and convoluted tale end?
Don’t miss this second book in The Somerset Sisters series by author Anna Bradley. It is a well written and plotted book worthy of any regency romance fan’s time.

I gave this book 4.95 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4.25 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy is hot but held off on until after the nuptials.
This book starts out as a laugh a minute and progresses into a poignant engaging story.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book via Netgalley to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

It’s hard to be respectable…

Jasper Sinclair, Earl of Saxton, made a barga in with the devil—his father—to marry in one month’s time. But instead of declaring his intentions for an acceptable debutante, he indulges his long-buried baser needs by joining a fighting club and pursuing a delectable woman who may not be what she seems. Soon he finds himself battling addictions that threaten his already wicked heart.

When you’d rather be wicked…

Orphaned seamstress Olivia West wants the chance to lead an honest, respectable life, but the arrogant Earl of Saxton launches a daunting campaign to make Olivia his mistress. Destitute and desperate, Olivia agrees to one night with the dangerous peer, and draws upon her mother’s courtesan experience to seduce him. After binding and blindfolding him, she brings him to the edge of release, only to switch places with an actual prostitute. However, Jasper detects Olivia’s deception and vows to claim what he’s owed—not his money, her.

“Intense and intriguing. Cinderella meets Fight Club in a historical romance packed with passion, action and secrets.” –Anna Campbell, Seven Nights in a Rogue’s Bed

“A romance that is going to make you smile and sigh…a wonderful read!” –Rogues Under the Covers
