STORY: Harriet Hathaway has loved only one man her entire life: the Earl of Roxley. But when he ignores her at a ball, she takes rather desperate steps to catch his eye and her plans find her ruined and without any hope of gaining Roxley’s heart. So it is much to her amazement when Roxley proposes marriage to save her from ruin. But Roxley’s proposal isn’t quite on the up and up and when she finds out she’s just another piece in one of his plots and japes, she vows revenge.
Roxley is desperate to pull his family from the brink of ruin, and the only way to gain a lost fortune is to prove to his aunts that he’s “reformed” his life and is determined to settle down. But the bride-to-be that he thought 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 quite possibly the keys to the Roxley fortune.
REVIEW: This is a third book in Rhymes with Love series, which tells the stories about three best friends from Kempton, a small village whose young women are cursed.
This is Harriet Hathaway’s story and her love for the Earl of Roxley. I truly enjoyed this fun, entertaining and sweet story. Both, hero and heroine, were very likable and I thoroughly reveled in their dialogue.
There are a lot of elements that bring this story to life, aside from the charming romance. If you like your romance to have a bit of mystery and danger, then you’ll find this story has both.
