Pleasure for Pleasure (Essex Sisters Series #4) by Eloisa James

The conclusion of New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James's Essex Sisters series!

Fueled by the knowledge that notoriety is better than failure, witty, unconventional Josie does what no proper young lady should—she challenges fate. She discards her corset and flirts outrageously. She attends the horse races and allows an arrogant rakehell to whisk her behind the stables for a surreptitious kiss . . . and is caught!

She doesn't want to marry the young hellion—but who's to help? Her chaperone keeps disappearing for mysterious appointments; her guardian is on his wedding trip; and his friend the Earl of Mayne is too busy staring into the eyes of his exquisite French fiancÉe.

Can a marriage forced by stuffy convention and unwilling desire become the match of the season?

When the Essex sisters came to London the four were unmarried now in 1818 there is only one, Josephine as her siblings have found their mates. However, her chances are slim, a most misfortunate word as her nickname amidst the Ton is the ¿Scottish Sausage¿, which she was dubbed because of a corset and a friend of a rejected suitor. While her sisters and her guardian are distracted by love and are off on honeymoons, Josie discards the corset, which in turn frees her beautiful body from its imprisonment. Though his engagement is falling apart as his fiancée Sylvie does not seem to want to marry him, Lord Garret Langham gets involved with protecting his family friend, the not so little Josie, from an angry attacker. When she rejects the failed assaulter Thurman¿s forced proposal, Garret offers marriage too. She accepts his as she knows she loves him. However, as she learns what love is, Josie knows she must free her beloved Garret so he can be with his Sylvie. --- The fourth Essex sister Regency romance is a delightful tale of love and hate amongst the Ton. The love is not obvious to comprehend as readers will agree with Josie that Garret wants Sylvie not her the hate is easier to spot as Thurman blames his failures as a witty name caller on Josie. Readers will obtain plenty of pleasure from Eloisa James¿ final Essex saga. --- Harriet Klausner

I really loved this book, better the any other in the series, because it has all my favorite ingredients. A transformed rake, a curvy heroine, meddling family, self esteem issues and of course scandal. Watching Josie, finally tame the Earl of Mayne is worth reading and I promise you will fall in love with this book.

I've read this book many times because I just love it. Josie is a wonderful heroine. The book has humor, drama, bad guys and retribution, twists and turns. Read it!

I have read every book that Eloisa James has written. And this is my absolute favorite of them all. I loved Josie and Mayne. The whole series was wonderful but I could identify w/ Josie the most. (for I'm a very curvy woman) I loved that she ended up w/ Mayne and most of the ending.. The best ending in any romance book that I have ever read!!!! You must read this whole series. Don't think that you can just pick this one up w/o reading the first 3. That's just silly!! My 2 favorite character's from all 4 books.. Lot's of twists in here that I didn't see coming.. And to find out who wrote that blasted book.. ha ha! This is a must read if you love E. James's books you have to read this one..

Josie is the last of the Essex sisters series so of course her story had to be the best in my opinon. Her story is quite funny.

Good story- it lagged a little before it got to their marriage but in all, worth the read.
