Meet the Author

At eight years old, Olivia Parker wrote her first romance with a fat red marker. It made one's eyes hurt to read it, but it did have a tortured hero. Since then, she's dedicated her efforts to improving her craft (now using pencils) and divides her time among her love of writing, reading, and relaxing with her family. She currently resides in northern Ohio with her husband, three children, a border collie, and a cockatiel, who eats a worrisome amount of popcorn.

    Yes

    A good story...the third in the series. The time in the books overlap on another it is so fasinating to read a scene from completely different characters points of view. I love that idea.

    As part of the series this book was perfect...as a stand alone maybe that was why some people thought it boring. Idk.

    It was good and well developed. I liked it though it should have had more of an ending. I read all three books in 4 days i couldnt put them down.

    Another great installment of the devine series!

    I have been eagerly anticipating this book for awhile. I absolutely loved the first two. I really enjoyed this book. I felt the nicholas and rosalinds charcters were well developed. The only problem i had with the book was the ending. It seemed really rushed and kind of unrealistic. The whole book nic wasworried about going against his duty to her brother and then at the end it wasnt a big deal. Despite that, i will defintely be buying the next book which is tristans story

    more from this reviewer

    This amusing gender battle is a fun Regency romance

    Lady Rosalind Devine loves matchmaking, but she thinks she cleverly conceals her passion. Her brother (see At the Bride Hunt Ball) does not trust her to be left alone so as he goes off on his honeymoon, he asks his best friend Marquess Nicholas Kincaid to watch his meddlesome sister Rosalind.

    He thinks he cleverly conceals keeping her safe, but struggles with his attraction to the obstinate Rosalind who fell in love with him seven long seasons ago when she was nineteen years old. Knowing her sibling, she is sure he appointed his best friend as her warden. She vows to herself to expose him as her protector by making him earn his keep even as she finds herself dreaming and considering how to change Nicholas's role into that of a passionate lover.

    This amusing gender battle is a fun Regency romance starring two delightful lead protagonists. Rosalind is a courageous woman who not just accepts but prefers spinsterhood rather than settling while the only man that she loves fears what she does to his heart (and other body parts). Sub-genre fans will enjoy this warm jocular historical.

    I enjoyed this book. I fell in love with Rosalind and Nicholas w

    I enjoyed this book. I fell in love with Rosalind and Nicholas within the first few pages. The only downfall was that it seemed half finished. Ms. Parker could have gone in many directions, steered the plot many ways, and it just killed me that she opened up all these avenues and left me going, "oh my god, what will they do next?!" only to have it come out the most expected route possible.

    For someone who had been holding back his demons for years, Nicholas was rather quick to cast them aside. And Lord Stokes really could have had a better position in this book; especially given the lengths he went to at trying to get to Rosalind. As much as I loathe to wish books to be rewritten and updated this one could use a little tweaking. After all, according to my nook, the book is only 187 pages; it's not as if Ms. Parker wrote an encyclopedia.

    But I would definitely reread it again; it was a wonderful, light read that got me out of my weekend slump.

    A fun romp

    Heroine is saucy, sassy and fun! She leads the Hero on a merry chase throughout the book. I love that Parker kept the give and take banter going through most of the book. A fabulous read!
