"I've sent for Beatrice and Cecilia so I can give them the written guest list as you asked, but before they arrive I want to know why in the world Lord Jessup Pennistan has been added to the list." Abel Brent set the paper down. Still standing, he folded his arms and waited for the countess's answer.
"Because it is impossible to say no to him." The dowager Countess of Haven folded her arms, imitating him, ready for an argument. When Abel stayed silent, a shocked look on his face, the countess laughed instead.

My first by this author. Enjoyed the story but thought that Jess's character as the hero of the story was very underdeveloped and could have been used to much better advantage.

One More Kiss
Abel Brent is not a gentleman by birth but by character. He is a self made wealthy man who wishes for his daughters to move up in society. He has enlisted the aid of the girl's godmother, the Countess of Haven, in throwing a house party so the young ladies may dip their toes in society's sacred waters. Beatrice and Cecilia Brent are close as sisters but very different in their personalities. Beatrice is petite, pretty and vivacious, while Cecilia is tall, beautiful and shy. Mr. Brent has warned the girls away from Jessup Pennistan (an unexpected guest) as he has a rather notorious background. This, of course, attracts Beatrice to him all the more. While Beatrice and Jess fall in love , Cecilia manages to find a beau of her own, Marquis Destry, a man who while he may be short in stature shows he is tall in attributes. This was really a dual love story (three if you count Abel and the Countess). It was a charming, light read.

Beatrice and Cecilia Brent don’t come from a titled family but their father has made his fortunes as a mill owner. The Countess of Haven has agreed to sponsor the twins and decided to get them adjusted to the ton by hosting a house party. Beatrice is attracted to Lord Jessup Pennistan, a man surrounded by scandal. Even though her father and the countess both warn her off Lord Jessup, Beatrice finds herself engulfed in scandal as well...a scandal that could destroy both her and her sister’s debut into society before it even begins.
One More Kiss immerses you into the daily politics and intrigue of a post Napoleon England. This is a very detailed and slow growing story. Verbal banter and social niceties prevail prominent in this plot. An enjoyable, easy, entertaining, historical romantic read, One More Kiss is a great way to spend your day.
