About the Author

When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Now her Regency romcoms (including the Wild Warriners and Talk of the Beau Monde series) are published in many languages across the globe. Twenty books and two Romantic Novel of the Year Award nominations later, it still takes her forever to fall asleep.

5.0 out of 5 stars When his schemes come biting him in his rear …
By Élodie Nicoli on November 9, 2021
Will his lies free him or entrap him even more …

The author bewitched me in a few minutes some years ago when I opened my first book by her, I owe her the reawakening of my love for historical romances, and after a tasting scene of a poultry cooked with its feathers in the first Warriners book, I have never missed any of her new releases.
And it will continue as such.

So I was even more curious to read what the author is able to concoct without the length constraints dictated by Harlequin.

I do no know for the two younger Merriwell sisters as they appear else childish or jaded, but Minerva the eldest was a heroine as I like them, the perfect compromise between honor, mothering, bitterness and resilience. She first rejected Hugh’s outrageous offer, yet pride and dignity do not put food on the table. So even if she does not believe in his scheme to be tenable for the length, it will offer she and her sisters a respite from all their troubles. As the one who kept them together when their fickle sire abandoned them, she sees a way to better their future even if the means are wrong, but beggars can’t be choosers.

Hugh is a man who tends to avoid confrontation, so instead of telling his mother to stop meddling in his life, he made up an imaginary fiancée. Believing it was the easiest path. And while he could have confessed all was a lark, he just hires a woman to act as said fiancée. Entangling them in a cas of events none saw coming. Worse, he is attracted to his false betrothed, when her very existence was due to his need to avoid matrimony. So he is torn between the pull he feels toward her and his certainties he is not made for married life.

But making reality match with fiction is not an easy feat when there are sisters who offer their very personal insights, friend happy to watch the plan spiraling down, too involved fake soon-mother-in-law and the many ups and downs no one predicted but us readers are happy to follow as the plot drowns even more into the mud.

This read is loaded with hilarious moments, funny banters and bickering, plus quite a sum of misunderstandings and many meddlers to add layers upon layers to the intrigue.
I loved Payne the butler, a pain in the rear of Hugh yet a great ally and Hugh’s best friend Giles.
