Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Johnson returns to her Scottish Society setting (following June 2011’s Nearly a Lady) to delight readers once again with gentle wit, graceful writing, and a sensible and spirited heroine. Miss Adelaide Ward resigns herself to accepting an imminent marriage proposal from tedious, condescending Sir Robert Maxwell, whose substantial income will provide for her impoverished family. Then she’s tricked into public compromise by a kiss from Sir Robert’s insolent but charming bastard half-brother, Mr. Connor Brice, a newly released prisoner. Refusing to be a mere pawn in the brothers’ feud, Adelaide demands history and answers from both men and finally chooses Connor, whose criminal history is tempered by his charm, good looks, and upfront financial generosity. Johnson wisely makes this the beginning of the story, not the end, and readers will cheer as Adelaide and Connor slowly turn their practical arrangement into a true romance. (Dec.)

    A pleasant read.

    The characters from Ms. Johnson's Nearly a Lady appear briefly in the beginning of the story. They serve an important purpose in that they help ADELAIDE WARD decide to become engaged – NOT to the duplicitous Sir Robert Maxwell, but to CONNOR BRICE, his half brother. And a good thing she did, too. Now her sister and nephew are safe from poverty and she's found a man who truly loves her.

    A wonderful read.

    This book was such a delight to read. My favorite of Alissa's so far. I am pretty sure I was smiling the whole time I was reading. I was so hoping we would get to read Connor's story and I wasn't disappointed in the least. Connor is now one of my favorite heroes from all the many books I have read. I highly recommend this book.
