Borrowed from the Local Library and original review from my blog (Post #133) in June 2011:
Book 2 in the Essex Girls Series
The sequel to Much Ado About You, which I really enjoyed was finally found lurking in a second-hand book shop in Bexhill of all places. Totally clean and new copy as well.
This time the story is about Annabel, who meets the Ewan, Earl of Ardmore at a ball. She is determined not to like the impoverished Scott, not to dance with him, and definitely not to marry him or fall in love. Her widowed sister Imogen is determined to have an affair with him.
Then a set of unfortunate circumstances see Annabel on the road to Scotland with him with everybody believing that they are married. It's not until well into the journey when they are sleeping in the same bed and she's totally addicted a a "kissing game" that she puts two and two together and realises that not only is he very, very rich, but that she has also fallen madly in love.
They are almost married, but does Ewan love her?
A 4 **** Star read.

ok the usual historical romance stuff. girl wants rich husband and has her sights set on a dry older gentleman, but the guy who lights her fire is a penniless scottish earl. that wasnt life she wanted but slowly he gets under her skin and she discovers all is not what is seems. the show is very clearly stolen by imogen another essex sister who has been recently widowed, although her story doesnt end with this book i hope as we are left hanging as to what imogen and mayne as going to get up to. not sure if this is the first or second essex sister book as the author refers to the sister tess's story alot. slightly confusing!!
