Through Honor's urging they enter into a dubious scheme to keep Honor's step-brother from marrying a woman who's been her social rival for years. Her soon to be sister-in-law has vowed to move Honor, her three sisters and their ailing mother out of London and into a country estate with only a small stipend to live on once she is married to Honor's step-brother.
It is only a matter of time before Honor's fire melts George's icy exterior and the steam turns to sizzle. They are like magnets and you can feel them draw toward one another when they share the same page. You can't wait for them to touch. And when they touch, you don't want them to stop.
Honor is strong from the start and goes after what she wants. While some would see this as spoiled, I saw her determined to have her own way in a day and age where most women could not.
George lives by his own very disciplined set of standards and though he takes risks with his standing in the Ton he feels the need to protect Honors. Even against her own wishes and his own desires.
If you are wanting to read about a damsel in distress who is waiting to be rescued, this isn't it. However, if you want to read about a fiery heroine who refuses to bow to the whims of society. And if you want to read about a driven man who holds himself apart from a world which barely tolerates his presence. And if you want to read about how this unlikely couple could possibly overcome all of the obstacles which stand in their way of ever truly finding the future they deserve -- then you want to read THIS book.
Honor was a good heroine, though I had my issues with her. On one had, she was feisty, independent, and very loyal to her family. She would do anything to take care of her sisters. On the other hand, she had a tendency to be immature and she acted spoiled several times. She tended to steamroll right over people's feelings in her determination to get what she wanted. Regardless, I still liked her, though she wasn't my favorite heroine.
George was wonderful, for the most part. He was sweet and determined to make the woman he loved happy. He knew his place in society was precarious at best, so he wanted to be sure he could take care of her. His stubbornness was a bit frustrating, particularly when it resulted in Honor being publicly humiliated. But, for the most part, I thought he was sweet.
The romance was great. Honor and George were sweet together, despite both of their stubbornness. And there was a ton of chemistry between them that led to some steamy moments. They were a lovely couple.
The plot was fast paced. I was kept interested the entire way through. There were tons of schemes and antics that kept me entertained, and a few surprises along the way. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was lovely. I'm excited to see what happens next with Grace's story.
The Trouble with Honor was a fantastic historical romance. I really enjoyed reading this wonderful book. Romance lovers, this is a book worth reading.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I’ve got a go-to soft spot for Julia London’s books. She’s written over 30 now and I’m pretty sure I’ve read every single one, so to say I know what to expect from her, wouldn’t be an exaggeration.
Well, I truly didn’t see this one coming!
Honor Cabot is a heroine who knows what she wants and doesn’t let anything stop her from getting it. I’ve read a couple reviews where people think she’s spoiled, but I believe she’s anything but. These reviews are clearly written by people who haven’t grown up reading Regencies for decades like I have and show a true lack of understanding of the mores of the era. Honor is ahead of her time and realizes she must work within the parameters that society has placed on her to change the outcome of her life.
George Easton is the bastard son of nobility in a time when anyone considered less than “quality” of the “ton” were shunned unless well and truly connected (such is George). He fights to prove to society that his standing is just as equal as those born on the right side of the sheets. Although he desires to be accepted by his peers, George is no school boy and makes bold decisions and takes large risks with his finances.
When the story opens we’re immediately thrust back in time and are reading an updated version of Austen. We watch as a jaded bastard, Easton, is well and truly snared. He’s so sure of himself and I dare any romance reader not to smile with smug satisfaction and cheer for Honor and laugh at George’s arrogance by the end of the first chapter.Read more ›

Love historical novels. The life of the ton was extravagant and tragic. The sacrifices women made. Dialogue is playful. Looking forward to the next book in the series.Published 1 month ago by Mia
