This was a great start for the Cobot Sisters series. I enjoyed it very much. Honor Cobot at times was very forward for a debutante, but I liked her very much for her feisty ways, but sometimes she sounded a little selfish. She was very loyal and did worry about her mother and sisters. Losing their home and usual comforts when her brother got married was a big worry.  After meeting George Easton, a gambler and womanizer, she asks him to help her out. A diversion for her brothers fiancé might be just the thing.  George was a great character, not the usual arrogant Lord which was a nice change, and but not always that confidant.  Honor and George made a great couple together, and when they got romantic it was very hot. This was a fun book to read, and I'm eagerly awaiting for more from the Cobot Sisters series . I received a free copy of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.

There are four Cabot sisters. Honor is the oldest. She is beautiful, unconventional and stubborn. Her family is in turmoil. Their stepfather is dying and their mother is slipping into senility. Augustine, their stepbrother, is the heir. He is planning to marry Monica Hartgrove. Honor knows this means trouble. She has a plan to stop the wedding. She enlists George Easton, the illegitimate, son of a duke, to seduce Monica. Honor and George are a perfect match. They fight their attraction but it burns bright. Where will their desires take them? Julia London has written a fast-paced, emotional romance that will keep you reading from the first page. The story comes to life with captivating characters and lively dialogue. Honor and George are engaged in a battle of wills. Neither will back down from their fiery attraction. The secondary characters add so much emotional depth to the story. I want to know more about them. I'm looking forward to reading more about the Cabot Sisters. I know it will be a wild ride. Julia London doesn't disappoint. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Trouble with Honor was my first Julia London book and my chance to dip my toes back into an historical romance. It’s really been too long since I’ve read one and I realized after reading about Honor and George and the other cast of characters how much I enjoy slipping back into a different time. A different time filled with witty repartee, intrigue, and subtle scheming all wrapped up in the push and pull between the hero and heroine. Let’s talk about Honor first. I didn’t like her at first. No, not one bit. Her motives to her schemes seemed selfish. But then Julia London unraveled the character that is Honor, exposing her true wishes and desires, her passion and her dreams. Then I couldn’t help but silently cheer for Honor and hope that even in a seemingly hopeless situation, she found what she needed. ‘“I mean that unless women demand to follow their heart’s true instincts, we will never be allowed to do so. Society will insist we marry well, and that is all they will ask of us.”’ George…now, George is quite the charmer! He’s dashing and a rake. He’s not considered part of the ‘ton’ and polite society due to his birth. My heart ached for him to find his place in society and to be worthy of Honor’s love. His humor and his downright sexy male personality shone through. ‘He was on fire, fully engulfed by a woman whose smile could reduce him to ashes. She touched her finger to his lip and whispered, “Did you miss me?” “More than the air I breathe,” he growled.’ What I love about this story is that even though Honor is facing some extremely difficult challenges, she stands up for what she wants. She’s not a wilting flower. And the banter and sexual tension between her and George kept me turning the pages waiting for the moment when they would again engage with each other. But whether or not their love was possible, remained to be seen. ‘To say words of love when one could not live in that love was too painful to endure, wasn’t it?’ Julia London wrote a sexy, fun romance and introduced us to the Cabot sisters, focusing on Honor for this book. Overall, I loved being transported back in time and seeing the journey unfold. Now I need to read Grace’s story!

Honor Cabot has been able to experience life without the restraints given those girls who have been betrothed or married. She has been brokenhearted before and she is in no hurry to get married and lose what little freedom she has been afforded as a woman.  When her step-brother becomes betrothed to her nemesis she fears that not only will she be put out upon their marriage, but also her siblings and ailing mother. She must do something to stop the wedding! George Easton knew the first time he laid eyes on Miss Cabot he was in trouble. Now she has come to him and asked the renowned rake to help ruin the engagement of her step-brother. Could she possibly be that selfish that she doesn't want to lose her fine things? Still something makes him consider helping her and as he gets drawn deeper and deeper into her plans, he finds that the woman he is getting to know just wants to protect her family.   Together they both discover a person who understands them for who they are.  And while Honor teaches George that he is worthy of happiness, George teaches her that she is ready to find and risk all for love again.

Book One in the Cabot Sisters series. Honor Cabot is anxious to find a way to delay her stepbrother's wedding. She believes her soon-to-be sister in law will displace Honor, her mother and her sisters as soon as she can. Honor makes a deal with George Easton to distract Monica from her impending marriage. It's never that easy, though. If you're looking for a fun historical romance with an audacious girl, real family chemistry and outrageous antics, this is definitely the book for you!

Have you ever had one of those books that you wish hadn't ended because you want to go back and read more? That is what has happened to me with The Trouble With Honor, Julia London's newest historical and first novel in the Cabot Sisters Series. The heroine is Honor Cabot, the oldest of four sisters. The step-daughter of a dying Earl, Honor is a strong-willed character who is not happy with the fact that her choices in life are limited because she is a woman. She and her sisters were lucky when their Mother met and married the Earl, because he took them in as his own, and his son, Augustine, adores them as well. Now, the Earl is dying, Augustine is engaged to a woman who may not be happy with five other women in the house, and their Mother is slowly "going mad," exacerbated by a carriage accident. Honor, who's been disappointed in love once, because her father's rank was not high enough, has embraced her current lifestyle and tends to do what she pleases. She has no wish to marry and embarks on a scheme to delay the inevitable with her step-brother, in hopes of keeping her Mother and sisters in their home. Enter George Easton, illegitimate son of a Duke and nephew to the King. Easton is a self-made man, and known womanizer. Honor hopes to convince him to lure her step-brother's Fiancee away. Easton disagrees with the scheme, but gets pulled into it because he likes her. This brings them together in fun ways, with both realizing the other isn't the person they show the world. The characters are fun, and I even come to like the "Evil" Fiancee. The ending sets the reader up for the next book, when we will find what scheme sister Grace has gotten herself into in her effort to "save" the family. I am not sure I can wait until August to find out what happens next! ** I was provided and ARC for an honest review...

A fun historical romance full of schemes and secrets, The Trouble with Honor was a lovely read. I really enjoyed reading this book. The romance, the scheming, the scandal: it was all wonderful. Honor was a good heroine, though I had my issues with her. On one had, she was feisty, independent, and very loyal to her family. She would do anything to take care of her sisters. On the other hand, she had a tendency to be immature and she acted spoiled several times. She tended to steamroll right over people's feelings in her determination to get what she wanted. Regardless, I still liked her, though she wasn't my favorite heroine. George was wonderful, for the most part. He was sweet and determined to make the woman he loved happy. He knew his place in society was precarious at best, so he wanted to be sure he could take care of her. His stubbornness was a bit frustrating, particularly when it resulted in Honor being publicly humiliated. But, for the most part, I thought he was sweet. The romance was great. Honor and George were sweet together, despite both of their stubbornness. And there was a ton of chemistry between them that led to some steamy moments. They were a lovely couple. The plot was fast paced. I was kept interested the entire way through. There were tons of schemes and antics that kept me entertained, and a few surprises along the way. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was lovely. I'm excited to see what happens next with Grace's story. The Trouble with Honor was a fantastic historical romance. I really enjoyed reading this wonderful book. Romance lovers, this is a book worth reading. *I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review

I stopped reading this book! Two of the most unlikable characters that you ever read! And the story just couldn't get going, the scenes just kept going nowhere.

This book has a nice story, the characters are will developed. I enjoyed the historical settings and atmosphere of the book. Honor is a strong woman especially in the time frame of the book. I personally did not need the bedroom scenes. I felt that the book would have been more appealing without the sex. I know that sex sells, but not as far as I am concerned. Other than that, the story was well written. This was a B&N Readout on Nook where one or two chapters are presented each day.

(From my Goodreads review) A period piece about an unabashedly headstrong, stubborn woman who believes women should be able to choose who to marry instead of marrying for the sake of strengthening political or social ties, increase wealth, or creating a fortuitous alliance for the sake of family. Honor Cabot was born ahead of her time & bucks all societal trends & expectations by marrying for love. The manner in which she does this makes up the bulk of the story in this book. Quite a delightful romance to read!

This is not one of my favorites. Honor was just too impulsive and manipulative for me to like. She cares a great deal about her family, until what is best for them contradict what she wants. And instead of being an adult and talking to Monica or Augustine she schemes to break them up. She was just far to childish to like. As for George, (I hate that name) he seemed kind of thick headed. And preferred to wallow in self pity until his valet finally tells him what to do. It was a decent story but I could have just skimmed the book and gotten the whole story.

Good start to a series. Really liked that he wasn't a duke or viscount or something. Sister relationship is good and nice to see that family dynamic was not all super nice or all evil step family stuff.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, it was great for light reading. Held my interest throughout the book. Se really funny spots to see how Honor would try to get herself out of situations. Little bit of mystery involved but not to the extent of being out of place.

My Thoughts: My interest in this genre again ended up getting me to come across this cute little story. They always have a different story to them, although they usually run around the same lines, like making bargains, as is the case with this story. Some may end up sounding like repeats of themselves, but this one had the different feel to it. The book starts with a game of cards involving George and Honor, which was only the beginning of their story. Honor later offers her winnings from that game of cards (oh yeah, she won) in return for the favor from him. He, of course, has to think about it at first. Then once things get started, it becomes obvious there's something between them heating up. All their conversations and interactions are amusing and sweet. The Trouble With Honor is a great romance to pick up for fun. I really liked Honor, a smart woman, and definitely liked George and his swoonworthy ways. Julia London drew me in and kept me reading. I'll probably be willing to keep reading this series sometime in the near future. My Rating: Very Good

I'm not going to punish the author by giving this less stars, but seriously I'm getting sick of everyone who gets a free copy for a so called honest review rubbing it in. Just write the review for pete's sake. When most of the reviews are written by freebies, who wants to pay $6 or $7 for a book?
