When you wish upon a star......well that's exactly what spinster and ameteur astrologist Lady Felicity Melville does. And for what? For excitement and adventure of course! And if by some magical spell, Nigel Cavendish appears. Mind you he's climbing down from a neighbors window after some...ahem..., but that won't stop our determined heroine. Oh no! She decides then and there that he's the one and they belong together. But he's one of the worst scoundrels and rakes you say? BAH! Reformed rakes make the best husbands didn't you know?! and thats exactly what Felicity is going to do. Now if only Nigel would cooperate and accept the inevitable. Stubborn man!!! She'll just have to *convince* him ;). Maybe with a little help and cleverness on her part.......she'll find out that wishes really do come true.
I really liked this one. The poor hero didn't see it coming! The bigger rake they are, the harder they fall....in love? and what a Lady wants, she gets....well, eventually. And the eventually part was the best! Nigel accepts that there is an attraction between the two and puts up a worthy fight, but ultimately its HIS own foolishness that leads to the marriage (sorry it'll spoil it if I tell you!). And then he realizes that maybe he was wrong, maybe this clever, intelligent and beautiful woman is really the one for him and he's ...gasp!..in love with her??? But is it too late? He's said some nasty things and possibly damaged the relationship beyond repair and lost Felicity's love for good. Whats he to do?! A grand romantic gesture? Now THATS what I wish for in a book!
A witty and whimsical cat and mouse game. It's nice to see the tables turned and have the Lady catch her hero. Some really good romantic fluff!
