From the Back Cover
For years, Miss Felicia Murdock's every thought and action have been in pursuit of becoming a minister's wife. When the minister she'd set her sights on has other ideas, she decides something in her life needs to change--and soon--before she wastes any more time pretending to be someone she's not. If that means spreading her wings and embracing a more lively way of life, who's to say nay?
Grayson Sumner, Lord Sefton, has had more than enough of spreading his wings and only hopes to settle into the life of a respectable New York gentleman. Prompted by some friends to lift the spirits of the disappointed-in-love Miss Murdock, he is surprised to encounter an adventurous young lady with an unfortunate knack for stumbling into troublesome situations.
Just as Grayson decides he's had quite enough of her antics, his past comes back to haunt him and his presence in Felicia's life endangers her. As they work together to extricate themselves from this latest complication, will Grayson and Felicia decide they want to spend the rest of their lives keeping one another out of trouble?

Felicia’s friends coerce Grayson, Lord Sefton, to begin to escort her so that other men of society will see she is available. Grayson had a rebellious, wild youth that sent him off to China. After tragedy struck he returned home and learned to control himself to protect his young daughter.
Felicia was delivering food and clothing to some seedy parts of town when her pony refused to move. Next thing Felicia is helping an elderly man who stumbled on the sidewalk. She helped him into a nearby pub where no respectable young lady should go. Felicia strides into one inappropriate situation after another. Fortunately, Grayson seems to be following her and is able to extricate her from most of the troubles. But Grayson has a past that has followed him from China and Felicia has managed to insinuate herself in the midst of his troubles.
Grayson is attracted to the lively young woman but feels his past makes him unacceptable for someone as good as Felicia. Can these two find forgiveness and grace to accept their past and find a future with love?
This is light, easy and enjoyable reading. Once you get past the first couple of pages and Felicia’s true personality is released, she is a hoot! Grayson thinks he has done awful things, and perhaps he did. But underneath he is a good man and it takes Felicia’s acceptance and shared grief with his sister for Grayson to begin to believe there may be redemption. The faith messages are lightly woven in.
The ladies’ book club members enjoyed this author before and we agreed it is nice to pick up a reliable, easy read once in a while. We recommend this to readers who enjoy light, clean romance.
Another great addition to this delightful series filled with humor, dare doing, danger, and quite a few botched marriage proposals. I also find the cover art for the series to be outstanding and reflective of the mischievous personalities of the various heroines involved. Sweet, faith oriented, romance containing humor and wit.
Felicia and Grayson were made for each other. I really don't remember liking Felicia in the first two books, but she was a hoot in this book. And Grayson, what's not to love about him. The way he stepped up with not only Ming, but Sam and his sisters was so sweet and proves just how special he is.
The storyline was good, maybe not as good as the first two books, but still good. I would say the book was a solid 4 stars, but the epilogue kicked it up another star. It was a fairy tale, Prince Charming, happily-ever-after ending.
Can't wait for book 4 so that Zayne and Agatha can finally tell their story.
I cannot stress how much I am looking forward to the Agatha and Zayne romance. I just discovered this series, read it in 3 days, and I simply cannot wait for the fourth installment. This book was such a treat.
