When Miss Rose Wellesley’s father threatens an arranged marriage, she knows she’d better settle on a choice quickly or end up having no say in who she marries. Fortunately, she’s garnered a rare invitation to Lady Dunlop’s “Week of Love” house party, an annual affair notorious for matchmaking. Her plans to expedite a proposal would go smoothly if not for the brash younger sister she must chaperone, her outspoken, disagreeable best friend, and the bullish Lord Hartfell who seems determined to dog her every step. Lord Hartfell embodies every last thing Rose dislikes in a man. He’s domineering, tenacious, argumentative, and a little too casual with his nudity for her tastes. Worst of all, Rose can’t seem to get him—or his kisses—out of her mind. Rose is determined to find a more appropriate husband, even if her heart disagrees with how unsuitable the stubborn lord is.
So this was definitely an interesting read. Kind of not what I would normally read but this is very well written. Harmony Williams has definitely done some research into this type of writing. She vividly paints a picture before you and pulls you into her story. This book has great character development. Harmony pulls you along as each page is turned quicker and quicker as you race to find out what is happening next. She puts you into the story right where she wants you as you start off feeling one way towards a character and by the end feeling completely different. I’m also glad that the cover is what it is. I’m tired of seeing a cover with some half naked male and it looking trashy from the outside. While some books that work for b/c that’s what you expect to read. This book keeps it in good tastes. The writing is flawless and the story imaginative. 4 stars from me! While I was sent this copy from NetGalley, all thoughts, reviews and feelings are my own.
