How To Please A Lady is book 2 in the Lost Heiresses series by Jane Goodger. It follows widowed Lady Rose Dunford and scandalous Charlie Avery through a tumultuous journey of humility, humbleness, and passion. Charlie has had a crush on Rose since their first encounter, but Rose refuses to have anything feelings for her fathers head groom; even though he saved her from a certain disastrous future her father wanted. Crushed, Charlie moves to America and becomes a well-known and wealthy inventor, proving he is just as good as the 'ton' men. Years later, we see Rose a widow and wealthy Charlie, her newest neighbor next door. Charlie performs scandalous activities in his house and Rose can't do anything about it. Or can she? I liked Charlie the most in this book because he didn't let rejection get him down; he did what he needed to do and came out on top! He got his riches and the girl the loved! I enjoyed this book very much! The only thing the I didn't like is that Rose's attitude towards Charlie. But, that's also what made the book enjoyable to read. There has to be some drama and chaos that eventually comes together in a climatic ending. I recommend this book to any reader who enjoys a great romance with lots of steam!

Well-portrayed characters - author takes the reader into the hearts of hero and heroine. You will smile and cry and rejoice with them. I thought I knew what would REALLY happen under the circumstances, but I knew the author wouldn't take us there. And then - she did! I puzzled over some of the actions of the secondary characters. The explanation was shown to us, the readers, in a logical and believable way. Judgment was left to the reader. I especially appreciated having believable, rational characters and situations carry the plot.

This is book 2 in the Lost Heiresses series. Lady Rose Dunford, a widow who has recently lost her husband, is shocked by the number of women that are seen coming and going from her new neighbor's brownstone. But having heard their activities next door, she finds herself intrigued by the going ons and wants to meet the bachelor that moved in. When she finally does, she is shocked to learn that she already knows the man. He once worked for her father and was the person that helped her leave England when her father was forcing her into an arranged marriage. Charlie Avery has finally made something of himself. Once the head groom at Rose's family home, he fell in love with the young lady of the house. He left England to get away from her, knowing that he would never be good enough for her. He never imagined that she would end up in America with him. Now that Charlie has made something of himself, can he win the hand of the only woman he has ever loved? I really liked this story and fell in love a little with Charlie myself! I loved that he was there for Rose no matter what happened. Even though he knew that he would never have her, he didn't let that stop him from protecting her and doing what was best for her, even when it wasn't what he wanted. Sigh... I'm looking forward to reading the next book in Goodger's Lost Heiresses series! Thanks go out to Kensington Books via NetGalley for a free book in exchange of an honest review.

Actual rating: 3.5 stars There are few themes that can squeeze my heart more painfully than unrequited love, and childhood friend and head groom Charlie Avery has it bad for Lady Rose. In hero-like fashion, he saves her from an abusive fiance, and she escapes to America with Charlie. Here, I got a fascinating peek into immigrant travel during this period, while subsequent challenges lent additional heartache and inevitable separation for the young friends. Their seemingly chance reunion as adults proves to be the perfect time for sharing personal triumphs, revealing secrets, and rekindling desire. Charlie was the star in my eyes, and his utter devotion to Rose along with his single-minded dedication to proving himself worthy of her makes this sweet and tender tale a delightful testament in true love.
