Bluestocking Eliza Hammond has been in love with Kit Winter forever. Unfortunately, he only sees her as his sister in law's mousy, shy, bookish friend. After 4 seasons without a sniff of an offer, it would appear that every other man thinks the same. But now Eliza has come into a fortune and is determined that this season will be her best yet - she just needs some help.

So she enlists the help of Kit to transform her into a stunning society belle that will be worthy of catching a great husband. But as their lessons continue, the sparks between Kit and Eliza begin to fly. Kit soon finds himself floored by his desire for Eliza, but will he realise his true feelings before he loses her to another man?

This is the third book in Warren's 'Trap Trilogy' after The Husband Trap and The Wife Trap. The book features the couples from both previous stories but apart from this stands nicely on its own.

Overall, I enjoyed this book. The writing was entertaining and engaging and the characters likeable. My main problem with the story was that there was a distinct lack of passion. It was a good read but lacked any great emotional depth so it was hard to develop a great feeling for Kit, Eliza or their emerging love story.

Another great annoyance was the huge number of Americanisms that popped up quite frequently in the book. This really pulled me out of the story and seriously grated after a while.

Despite all its faults, this is still a story that I would recommend. It may not be the deepest or most involved story but it's still an entertaining and readable story. 4 stars.

The book is about the story of Kit Winter and Eliza Hammond, who have been supporting characters in the previous novels in this series. It's mostly a "growing up" tale for Kit Winter -- he's a second son, and as in the first book in the series "The Husband Trap", he is not a bad person but more likely grew up a bit self-indulged. Having loads of money without really any responsibility that his older brother Adrian has. So he is overschooled and uninspired.

Then his sister-in-law (Adrian's wife, Violet from "The Husband Trap") sets him up to be a mentor for her best friend Eliza, who is a wallflower spinster who had just inherited a large fortune and therefore wants a more successful London season than her previous ones. Kit is supposed to teach her how to be less shy and reticient in society and to give her an all over "makeover". She has also been secretly in love with Kit for the longest time but he has never noticed her and although he was never unkind to her he was just too immature to appreciate her "inner beauty". As they spend more time together Kit gets to know more and more about Eliza and soon finds himself in love and realises he needs to start doing something with his life as his carefree bachelor days were really getting tiresome. Through their relationship he becomes a better person with a better sense of priorities.

The main characters were familiar as they have been introduced in the previous books and so they have been acquaintances for a while. It was also nice to catch up with characters from previous books in the series. I can not fault the story. I am glad they ended up together but I gotta say I am less than enamored by Kit.

Expected Better 23 April 2007
By M. Logan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first Tracy Anne Warren book I've read and I bought it based on a recommendation. I was sorely disappointed. The story was beyond boring and I simply couldn't get through it which rarely happens with romance novels. I ended up returning it to the store. Her characters seemed well-drawn enough, but the dialogue was really stilted (yes, I know it's a regency, but that doesn't mean that standards for witty, interesting dialogue should be dropped enitrely. Many other authors manage to pull it off).

I didn't read the other two books, but I could still understand what was happening which was nice. I just didn't care. I can accept formulaic (hey! It's a romance novel, we all know what will happen in the end!)but the story never picked up momentum.

I also disliked the basic premise of the story-- that Kit never recognized her until she cut her hair and got some pretty gowns. The premise could have been salvaged, but in the end, it simply wasn't romantic. Talk about true love.

This may have been my first book by this author, but it's almost certainly going to be my last.

Amazing, beautiful, and incredibly passionate! 2 Jun. 2006
By A Mother and Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am now a die-hard Tracy Anne Warren fan. I have loved each of her "Trap" books. This one was so exception. Eliza's quiet love for Kit and his surprising love for her was exceptional. The love scenes sizzle and there is enough emotion to leave you wanting more.

Lord Brevard's fate broke my heart, but I hope Tracy Anne will give him a happy ending too. ;)

I definitely recommend this book as well as the other two in the "Trap" trilogy.

Not a good "Trap" 24 Nov. 2008
By Andei - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read the Husband and the Wife trap and I really enjoyed both. But I don't like the plot here. How could the hero not see her as a beauty even before the makeover? It seems that he was also shallow and only took notice of her with new hairstyle and gowns? Anyway, here's the turn off and let's fast forward to the scene when he told Eliza's cousin(the villain) to leave England permanently and even suggested to settle in France. Then on the epilogue, he was telling her about a job that would require them to live in France? How stupid was that? Were they following Pettigrew that they were going to be in the same place with the villain and might even crossed path again? Come on... where was your common sense Kit or better yet Ms. Warren.

A Nice Conclusion to the Trilogy 24 July 2006
By D. Malone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book follows the courtship of Violet's (from the Husband Trap) brother-in-law (Kit) and best friend (Eliza). Eliza is a bookish wallflower and Kit is popular and outgoing. Violet is helping Eliza through her fifth season (a fact that would be disasterous if it were not for a hefty inheritance she received from her recently deceased aunt). Violet's sister (Jeannette from the Wife Trap) helps Eliza in personal makeover. Kit's job is to help Eliza learn to make conversation. During their lessons Kit falls for Eliza and vice versa. There is some mystery thrown in when Eliza is kidnapped by her cousin (whom his aunt disowned) who wants to marry her to get "his" money back. The conflict keeping Kit and Eliza is at times frustrating because it seems easily overcome but other than that the novel is entertaining and enjoyable.

What A Let Down!! 1 July 2006
By M. Willis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read, "The Wife Trap" and "The Husband Trap", and I loved them both. This book was such a disappointment!! Eliza and Kit were sooo boring! This book just dragged along. I felt like I had been reading it forever. I read the other reviews and cannot believe they all thought this book was good?!

I hope her next book is as good as the first 2.
