Whittaker, the Earl of Thurston and Miss Mirabelle Browning haven't said a kind word toward each other since they were children. The Dowager countess, now tired of their snipping has gotten both to agree to a truce for one week. During his mother's house party Whit has young ladies vying for his attention, but he doesn't have eyes for anyone but Mirabelle. Mirabelle sees a different side to Whit; after he gives her, her first kiss. Soon she must go to live one week with her uncle, which she dreads. I really loved this book. I believe the characters were really well developed. It's a sequel to As Luck Would Have It, but it can and did stand-alone.

Whit and Mirabelle are perfectly matched. From page one, I was pulled straight into their battle of "wits". I read along enjoying every fine detail Ms. Johnson threaded through the story. Her particular attention to characterization and strong voice made the book a true treasure.

I very much enjoyed reading "Tempting Fate" by Alissa Johnson. The tenor of this story is light as air, with a healthy dose of sexual tension around the main characters that we can see from the beginning are perfect for each other...if they could just quit arguing. Mira was left an orphan when her parents died, and their will placed her under the care of a distant relative who turned out to be a thorough rotter! But as luck would have it, she literally fell into the company of a similarly aged girl on a neighboring estate and ended up spending most of her time there, an honorary member of the family. Over the years, she's gotten plenty of enjoyment from teasing, fighting, and insulting the oldest brother and heir Whittaker. Now if she can just hold for two more years, she'll be out from under the heel of her nasty relative. Whit is handsome, rich, and quite a catch. If he could only stomach the simpering girls of the ton, he'd be a much happier man. Well, that and if he could quit letting Mira get the best of him. With his mother's house party in jeopardy, she extracts a promise from Whit and Mira to be 'nice' to each other and on their best behavior. Imagine their surprise when, with no insults to banter, they discover something a bit more... I enjoyed "Tempting Fate" so much that I just ordered Alissa Johnson's first book "As Luck Would Have It". This story is not a serious, dramatic one. Rather it's hugely comical, with lightning-quick repartee and hot sexual tension. A perfect afternoon break for a smile and a laugh.

First time reading this author. This book was really good. I tend to be drawn to characters who banter with each other. The verbal passion between the H/h turned into a deep love and I just adored Whit.
