When she spots Sir Daniel from afar in the garden, she should not have removed her spectacles so soon. The man she asks to kiss her is actually his younger brother, Alex. And he kisses her. Again. And again. After experiencing kisses so nice, Willa has second thoughts about marrying Daniel. And she won't have to, for her aunt asks her to come to London to be her new companion.
I've read some of the best Regencies, and this book is not among them. The beginning starts off incredibly well. Willa's first encounter with Alex is hilarious, and their second and third encounters are promising as well. The book begins a slow descent into boredom (and the characters lose some of their original wit) around the time Willa goes to London. When their "friends" enter the picture, it becomes a bit jumbled (I would have rather had more focus on Alex and Willa), and the book solidified its fall from my good graces when I was met with 2 chapters about birthing a foal. Despite its excellent beginning, it quickly lost its steam.
However, Willa and Alex were interesting enough characters to keep me going. I've read better, but I've read worse. 2 1/2 stars.
Being responsible for his sister’s entrance into society is really more than Jerome Linnet, a country vicar, was prepared for. So turning to his close friend, Sir Daniel Braeburn, the two scholars come up with a logical solution: Sir Daniel can marry her and the two men can continue life without all that unnecessary fanfare. Willa, the intelligent, young lady in question, questions this conclusion and decides to conduct an experiment to see if she and Daniel have any of this romantic chemistry that she has heard so much about. Upon seeing Sir Daniel in the garden, she removes her spectacles to increase her somewhat limited allure and asks him for a kiss. And what a kiss it is! That is until she realizes that she is kissing Alex, Sir Daniel’s brother, a confirmed bachelor and rake who is not looking for marriage.
This is where the irrepressible Lady Alameda (“Aunt Honore”) comes in. Through her machinations Willa gets her opportunity to enter society and is outwardly transformed into the surprise of the season. But only Alex is aware of Willa’s intelligence, warm personality, and ability with animals. Will he allow his attraction to her to overcome his reluctance to pursue her knowing she has marriage in mind?
This is the second in the series of Aunt Honore books which all feature the witty, outrageous Lady Alameda and her schemes to see her nieces and nephews marry well. I have read all three books in the series and recommend them to fans of Georgette Heyer, Oscar Wilde, Erica Ridley, and those who enjoy a witty romantic comedy.
I had read the first in the series, Lady Fiasco, and found it entertaining, but this one was even better. Much of the weaknesses I’d found in the first one had been corrected here. The humor was better, Honore wasn'tt quite so outlandish or risqué, and there's even less of the mild curse words--only six in the book. There are no sex scenes in either of them. I found this one very amusing and quite enjoyable.
