Rose is best friends with Nicola, the sister of Lord Emory aka Julian. Lord Emory has been courting a nasty woman the family hates. What they don't know is he has been asked by the Prince Regent to uncover a spy network that reports to Napoleon. Counter to this, Nicola asks Rose’s help in getting Lord E away from the evil Valentina.
Rose and Nicola engage in what could be called madcap antics to free Lord E from the evil clutches of Valentina. These include having him “kidnapped” by his family to the country home. When he needs to leave to up his spy game back in London, his family
drugs both him and Rose and place them in a hunting lodge/room/whatever. Rose knew he was going to get drugged, but resents being thrown into the fray as she will be ruined when all is found. The H is understandably furious when he wakes and accuses Rose of forcing a wedding as she seems to know more about the drugging plot. She pushes him for why he is so interested in the evil woman when he is so happy to kiss her. They almost have sex, but he stops in time, and the next morning does a cruel to be kind routine that the previous night meant nothing. To be honest, he has England to save from evil Boney even if it means lying back and thinking of England when he’s with Valentina instead of the perfect Rose. End SPOILER
More antics ensue.
For those that love the lighter side of Regency romances, something along the lines of New Adult Regency then give this a try. It’s well-written, slightly anachronistic, very, very sweet, and steamy but not OTT sex scenes. Solid three stars for these objectives if this is your wheelhouse. The heroine is a little scatty, and there were a few secondary characters I enjoyed. To be honest, I was skimming toward the end so I think there were a few dropped threads: who actually sabotaged Rose’s kiln and what happened to the evil but beautiful Valentina?
Personally I did not care for this book at all. It started out with a meet cute between the H and h (he saves her when her kiln explodes), and it continued to get cuter and cuter. I am too old for cute. Instead of swearing, she says, “Crumpets”, when she’s really distressed, “Hot buttered crumpets!” Occasionally, for variance she says, “Eep”. His cursing is much more manly,“Bloody nuisance.” The characters were grating to me and too much was forced joie d vivre and madcap fun.
With the story of the oldest Farthingale sister complete, the only thing left to do is re-read the books, this time in chronological order.
I received a copy of the book from the author; she didn't realize I had already pre-ordered it! I love this series and these sisters.
