The 30 year-old spinster Miss Emmaline Dove is an efficient secretary to the handsome, sexy rogue and successful newspaper and businessman, Viscount Harry Marlowe. She has kept his extremely disorganized life in check, making him appear the most organized nobleman in society. His office and home run flawlessly. She purchases all of his personal gifts for family and mistresses, and even steps in as the role of comforter to those discarded. She takes comfort in her role and her ordered life, continuing to work for him in order to convince him to publish her book of etiquette. He turns down her most recent effort, published under the name of Mrs. Bartleby. When Emma asks for constructive criticism as to why the work was rejected, he responds with, 'Who is Mrs. Bartleby?' and she realizes he has never taken the time to read any of her manuscripts. Downhearted and then furious she resigns her position. When she enters a shop to purchase a beautiful peacock fan she has had her eye on for a long time, she discovers a beautiful young debutante is purchasing it. It is then that she realizes how much of her life has passed by while attending to the needs of Viscount Marlowe. Harry is beside himself! Where is his efficient, unremarkable and uncomplicated Emma? His life and most importantly, his schedule, is a mess. He is running late and missing appointments, documents are missing, and his staff is panicked. When he realizes that Emma has resigned, he is determined to get her back. When he arrives at her flat in order to convince her to return, Emma informs him she will be working for his most severe competition and will be writing her own weekly newspaper etiquette column in the Social Gazette. Emma's new job is a dream come true. She is an instant success! She no longer has to worry about that rogue Viscount Marlowe, and she has more money than she ever had before. Harry is even more miserable. Not only is his business and personal calendar a wreck, but now he has to spend his breakfast listening to his mother and sisters constantly praise Mrs. Bartleby! Seeing that he cannot lure Emma back as his secretary, he purchases the Social Gazette. Emma is suddenly in constant contact with Harry and is troubled by growing feelings of attraction. Harry is beginning to wonder why Emma is appearing more attractive. Desire and passion build and soon Emma is in the arms of Harry. Harry is in heaven with his Emma. When Emma agrees to become his mistress, he purchases a cottage away from the city where they spend idyllic weekends. But can Emma continue to hide Mrs. Bartleby's true identity and her affair with Harry from her friends? When Harry realizes that he truly loves Emma, can he take the step from lover to husband? And Then He Kissed Her is Laura Lee Guhrke's best novel to date. It is a well-developed pleasurable read that grabs hold of the reader from the first page to the very end. It is sexy and witty with strong characters throughout. This is a book not to be missed!

This was a great unique story! I enjoyed it thoroughly! The main characters were believable and likable. This is the first novel i have read by this author but it wont be the last!

Fianlly, a book that is pure romance! It was all about the main characters and their evolving love, nothing about murder plots or the like. I couldn't stop reading it.

This book offers lots of steamy scenes with genuine romance. The characters develop over the course of the book and the relationship grows out of intimacy, sexual and otherwise. Some might criticize such 'modern' seeming sensibilities in a Victorian setting, but there truly were pioneers who blazed the paths for women in the workplace, equitable relations between the sexes, and, yes, the now venerable institution of divorce.

I really enjoyed this book. The love scenes were steamy but well done. I think this could have done with a few more pages to wrap up some of the sub-plots at the end. This was worth the read and I will read this again.

I'm not a fan of the late Victorian time period, but I decided to give this book a try based on the reviews. I'm glad I did because it was a wonderful read with a heroine that's spunky but vulnerable and a hero that's a bit to sure of his appeal but learns a needed lesson. The writing is great and the plot refreshing and witty.

I loved this book. The author created a beautiful story...but why is the cover image portray the complete opposite of the female character in the book? I won't say it directly, but anyone else see what I am seeing? I think the person in charge of the cover should have been given some info...

Harry and emma are intriguing characters. Harry is humorous and kind while emma is very reserved. The story progresses to a great love story with lots of romance. I only which the ending was more detailed. However, since this is part of a series it may be mentioned in the next book. This is the first book i have read by this author. Well written!

Half way through the story fell apart. The so called hero does everything to convince a very moral girl to give up her morals without the remotest chance of marriage... and she agrees!! Seriously?

This author is pretty new to me, so comparisons are not plentiful. I liked the main character (Miss Dove); him not so much. He was pretty spoiled and selfish, but he did "grow" on me. I liked that the they at least got a pretty goods ways into the story before they fell into bed. Then felt like it ended too soon. Overall though, an enjoyable read.

Boring-g-g-g-g-! Like a bad note passed in Jr. High. Do you love me? Circle yes or no. What can I say? I didn't like it and I know Laura Lee Guhrke is better than this.

I love reading this series! I just wish she would release them to Barnes and Noble at the same time that Amazon gets them. It's torture waiting
