delightful story, unusual hero and heroine. Better than the average Regency by far and great secondary characters.

My summary of the book - Mary decides to help Jack find a bride and is glad to find a new friend in Jack. As they find potential brides they start to enjoy each other's company. After Jack finds out about Mary's fortunes his view of Mary changes and sets out to marry her. But nothing goes smoothly and soon Jack and Mary are fighting for their futures.

Thoughts on the characters - Mary knows she isn't the prettiest woman and because of this she is more confident and comfortable with making friendships with the biggest rakes as she believes they wouldn't be interested in her. But she doesn't realise that her friendliness and smiling nature draws people to her and soon Jack starts to see her completely differently. She has been through a lot and didn't have the best of childhoods so this makes her vulnerable and could cause her heartache.
Jack is a big rake but after unexpectedly inheriting the family title and estates he has to change and find a rich wife to help him. He is surprised when Mary decides to help him and enjoys her company. When he finds out about his wealth he decides to have Mary which is very wrong but he has to do what he can for the family and the estates. As he spends more time with Mary he starts to realise how wonderful she is and his feelings grow. He does start to improve but he nearly ruins it all when events don't turn out as expected.

Thoughts on the writing style - Engaging easy to read book.

Overall thoughts - Interesting book where you feel for Mary as she has gone through so much and just hope that she finds the happiness she deserves.

This was my first Candice Hern book and I have to say I truly enjoyed this. It was saucy, witty and a real fun read. I felt so strongly for Lady Mary and I even teared up! Just could imagine all the conflicting emotions going through her - and I think that is all I was looking for - to lose one's self in the book. Well worth my time.

A really good story and written so well. Another good book by this author. I found her books by a recommendation by Amazon and I am very grateful. All of her books are worth reading. She is very descriptive, some are funny but are all very good in their own right. Well done!

I have read this 3 times now and am still finding little snippets to make me want to read it again. Definitely one for the regency fanatic.
