Is his protecting his honor more important than winning her heart?
Blythe: Schemes Gone Amiss
Intrepid and outspoken...
Dragged to London for a Season, Blythe Culpepper is dismayed to learn her guardian has enlisted the devilishly attractive Lord Leventhorpe--the one man she detests--to assist with her Come Out. Since their first encounter, hostile looks and cutting retorts have abounded whenever they meet. Still, she cannot deny the way her body reacts when he's near. So perhaps it's no surprise that upon overhearing another woman scheming to entrap Tristan into marriage, Blythe risks all to warn him.
Haunted by childhood trauma...
Tristan, the austere and controlled Marquis of Leventhorpe, usually avoids social gatherings. So why, against his better judgement, does he agree to aid his closest friend in presenting the Culpeppers to the ton? Might it be because one particular Culpepper stirs more than his interest? Blythe taxes him to his limits with her sharp wit and even sharper tongue. Yet, he cannot deny the beauty fascinates him.
However, when a past enemy comes calling, using Blythe to settle old scores, Tristan must decide if protecting his honor is more important than winning the heart of the woman he has come to love.
Caution: This book contains a nobleman with a dark past, a strong-minded miss who is willing to cause a scandal if it means she can leave London, a spoiled, aging Welsh Corgi with digestive disruptions that can clear a room, and an entourage of goodhearted sisters and cousins whose antics land them in conundrum after conundrum.
Buy the second installment of the Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper historical Regency romance series for a romping, emotional, and romantic adventure you won't want to put down.

Watch out London! The Culpepper Misses have arrived at the dismay of Blythe Culpepper. Having arrived in London with her sister, brother-in-law & cousins Blythe is being introduced to the ton when she’d much rather be in the country and away from a very annoying Marquis. The man sets off her temper like no other, if there was only a way to avoid the man but alas, he is her brother-in-law’s best friend so he’ll always be a presence. Unless she can get through this season & retire to the country as she has no aspirations to wed. Until she meets a gentleman who could possibly change her plans. That is until she overhears a title grabbing “lady” & her mother plot to trap Tristan into marriage. Will this be the catalyst that has Blythe realizing exactly what those fireworks mean? Tristan, Marquis of Leventhorpe, has led a very controlled life. Something from his childhood haunts him still & he avoids commitment of any kind. Which is soon tested by the fiery Blythe Culpepper, sister-in-law to his best friend. Whenever they are together the room vibrates with electricity. A long time enemy threatens Blythe’s safety which is the catalyst that makes Tristan realize what she means to him. As one man’s stupidity, an enemy & title grabbing schemers will Blythe & Tristan realize what they mean to each other? Can Tristan let go of the past in order to be happy? Another hit by the extremely talented Collette Cameron that will have you laughing & crying all at the same time. Her wit combined with the strength of her characters will draw you in & not let you go. Looking forward to her next installment to see which Culpepper Miss has me laughing out loud.
Made the mistake of starting this last night right before bed. The husband got up for work at 4am as I was putting the book down! LOVED the story of Blythe and Tristan! I was especially happy to read about a heroine who didn't fall into a weeping heap but fought back! Her character was amazing.
Schemes Gone Amiss 4* Sparks flew when Blythe Culpepper first met Tristan, Marquis of Leventhorpe in Book 1 of the Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper. Blythe has a lively temper and the red headed Tristan loves to goad her, but in London, both find attributes to admire in each other and their feelings begin to deepen. However, due to past humiliation Tristan keeps Blythe at arms length until a blackguard assaults her virtue and he comes to her rescue. The language in this book is not as coarse as in the first, though passages such as, "Next thing she knew, the perky pair would scramble from her bodice's lace edge and wave a jaunty hello" do seem rather out of place. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
