Miss Emma Bavidge was eavesdropping as her father, Viscount Hawkridge, and her aunt discussed finding her a husband. She wasn’t beautiful and did not have a large dowry! Hardly inspiring words! Emma contacts Lady Emily Smithton who leads ‘The Spinsters Guild’ and is promised help. When questioned, Emma mentions one gentleman’s name – Viscount Morton. Viscount Nathaniel Morton feels sorry for Miss Bavidge, as he knows her father and the details of what occurred. He knows her own behavior has been above reproach. A sweet story about the delicate nature of a female’s reputation in the Regency era. Viscount Nathaniel Morton feels responsible for Miss Bavidge. He has watched the Ton treat her with disrespect and would like to help her become more accepted. And as he does so, he falls for her! This is the second book in The Spinsters Guild series a well written story that was interesting and thought provoking! how society views have changed! I liked Emma and Nathaniel. The characters and situations are well written! I look forward to book 3!!
Delightful story where the main characters must overcome all the secrets, lies and manipulation by others, before they can reach for their happy ever after. Nathaniel Morton feels guilt for his part in destroying Lord Hawkridge’s reputation and decides to watch over his daughter Emma Bavidge. When his feelings for Emma start to develop, Lord Rochester tries to keep them apart. I enjoyed this story very much. I received a copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
I didn't enjoy this book as much as I did the first in the series. Although the book was well written, I felt the plot to be a little thin, and Emma Bavidge and Lord Nathaniel Morton were weak. The continual indecision of Lord Morton as to whether or not he should tell Miss Bavidge about his part in her father's downfall was wearing, in the end I just wished he'd get on with it. The 'baddie' Lord Rochester was a bit pathetic as well. I also felt that Lady Smithton in this book was using Lord Havisham, and he appeared to becoming weak. All in all I didn't enjoy this book, I look forward to reading the next in the series as Rose Pearson is one of my proffered authors.
I agree with the review left by MOD! Everything that reviewer wrote is spot on.
Plus I didn't get the feeling that our hero was "the hero". The hero from the first book rescued our heroine at the end from the villan. And where was our hero? Skulking behind the garden foliage! The main character from the first book hollered at him and said, "you might as well come out!". Made him look like a real loser in his own story. That's why I took off a star rating.
Read MOD 3 star rating and you'll get a clear insight into the cast of characters.
This is a horrid book. It could be a lot better but the path the writer choose was the books undoing. The plot is remarkably childish and poorly paced. The characters of the book are not very likable or developed. They mostly come off as weak or judgemental. An insipid and uninspiring story overall.
I enjoyed this book, though the hero’s lack of telling the full truth drove me nuts when he knew the adversary was wanting to cause trouble. I hate when these misunderstandings are a premise for a story. That’s why it got 4 stars instead of 5. I would have preferred to have the hero be straight and tell the full truth thus the adversary not being allowed to blackmail him. Anyway it was still a good story. Worth reading. I’m hoping the whole series isn’t full of the same type of misunderstandings.
