Two polar opposites find themselves falling head over heels in love in Jessica Hart's irresistible first-person romance for Mills and Boon Modern Tempted, Hitched!

Frith Williams doesn't like to leave anything to chance. Hard-working, conscientious and determined, the dedicated engineer is driven to succeed and has her future all mapped out. She wants to get a big construction job under her belt, and then once she's gained the necessary experience, she plans to leave England behind and head overseas. Relationships and affairs of the heart are strictly not part of the plan for Frith. Unlike her socialite sister Saffron who lives for wild parties, excessive shopping sprees and designer dresses, Frith is more at home on a building site, dressed for comfort and armed with her plan of action. Frith's life revolves around her career and when she gets the job that could set her on the path to success, she is adamant that nothing and nobody will mess this up for her - so it's just a shame that estate manager George Challoner seems to take a particular delight in seeing her get all hot and bothered...

George Challoner is good-looking, charismatic and has way too much charm for his own good. The hunky estate manager may spend his days teasing Frith and making her blush, but she is well aware of the fact that, despite all of the banter and flirting, a man as gorgeous as George would never even contemplate the thought of taking a Plain Jane like herself out for a date. Men like George Challoner would much rather go out with stunning supermodels who look like they've just walked off the catwalk and not with a woman who spends her life covered in dust wearing boots and dungarees! However, little does Frith realise that there is more to George than meets the eye...

As part of the illustrious Challoner banking dynasty, George had once lived in a world of affluence and luxury. But upon realizing that not all that glitters is gold, George had turned his back on his old life and instead relocated to the countryside where he has been leading a very happy life as the manager of his great friend Roly's country estate. When Frith Williams had arrived at Whellerby Hall, George had been absolutely bowled over by her. But despite his best efforts, Frith doesn't seem to want anything to do with him!

When Frith's panic-striken sister comes to Whellerby Hall begging her to help her organise her wedding, George immediately offers to help Frith coordinate the society wedding of the year. Thrown together by circumstance and united by a sizzling attraction that simply cannot be denied, Frith and George soon find themselves getting closer and closer...

Will there be wedding bells in the future for them as well? Or will they let stubborn pride and a reluctance to put their hearts on the line destroy their chance of happiness?

Warm-hearted, deliciously witty and absolutely impossible to put down, Hitched! is a brilliant contemporary romance that will tug at your heartstrings and have you laughing out loud. I loved Frith - she was funny, engaging and had hang-ups and issues that we can all relate to and emphatise with and George was absolutely scrumptious. An intelligent and sexy hero with a wicked sense of humour, I defy any woman not to fall madly in love with him!

Smart, sassy and spellbinding from start to finish, feel-good contemporary romance does not get any better than this!

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 27 February 2013
A civil engineer meets a handsome man on site - then her daffy socialite sister arrives with demands to hold a celebrity wedding in a stately home. Plans are put on hold and chaos ensues.

Frith Taylor is the less beautiful of two half-sisters, the older and more sensible. She doesn't want her father's money, and has a plan to make it on her own merits as an engineer. Whellerby Hall in Yorkshire is developing a conference centre to help pay the running repair bills. Frith can cope with the incessant rain and mud, the hardy workmen who scorn a female supervisor and the lack of incentive to cook for one. But George the estate manager gets under her skin, with his pleasant admiration, jokes, horses and his putting a random ringtone program onto her phone. Just as she's got to the stage of sharing a meal with him in his cottage, Saffron, society's darling who doesn't know how to earn a living, arrives in hysterics because her chief bridesmaid is letting her down and demands Frith take over the job.

Frith reluctantly agrees to host the hen night as an Edwardian house party, with the agreement of the stately home's owner, and due to capable staff the evening is a success. She's persuaded George to pretend to be her boyfriend, promising that she'll accompany him to his grandmother's party. Fiction slowly becomes reality, despite the snide allegations that George was embezzling from hedge funds in his family's bank. But the conference centre is almost completed, and Frith is applying for more work, once the chaos of the celebrity wedding is over....

HITCHED is a pleasant slow-boiling romp through modern English society, with contrasting characters, from Frith's hard-boiled self-made father who claims nobody looks down on you when you've millions in the bank, to the posh-schooled City bankers who get jobs through family ties, not ability, and look down on everyone. The two sisters are each lovely people, while George's ability to gain the trust of his horses makes him a very sympathetic character.

I have really enjoyed the Harlequin Kiss collection so far and thought I was onto another winner with Hitched! It started so well and I loved the first quarter, but as I continued reading things got worse and worse to the point where I struggled to finish.

The first few pages had me laughing out loud and it all seemed cute, fluffy and funny. I really liked the characters. George is everything I like in a leading man; he is charming, sweet and funny. He was breathtakingly honest and fun. I liked Frith too, sure she was a little uptight but her inner voice was hilarious and I thought I would really love her. But as the book went on Frith when from someone I liked, to someone I couldn't stand.

My God she was just so irritating. The more the book went on the more uptight she got. She had a plan for everything and staunchly refused to divert from her sensible and dull goals. She constantly made assumptions about other people's needs especially where George was concerned. `He needs a woman who can do this, looks like this, acts like this' or `he needs to be a father, I won't be able to give him that' she was just full of self-pity and never once asked what George wanted or needed. I get that she was hurt by a boy when she was a teen but honestly who hasn't been?

The romance started well and there was loads of chemistry but when they got together it faded. Honestly I don't know why they were together. They are nothing alike and none of the issues that were bought up through the book were resolved. Some of these things were quite important like Frith not wanting kids.

Hitched! Started well but really lost its way. Jessica Hart is clearly able to write and proved with the first quarter that she can write well, but the personality of Frith bough this book to its knees.

The protagonist of this book, Frith (I really hated her name) is a busy woman. She's just taken on a huge project which she hopes will make it possible for her to get an amazing job overseas in the not too distant future. She has a plan you see, and doesn't want to stray from it. I loved that Frith was so rigid with her lists and plans because that aspect of her character sounded just like me. She likes to be organised and likes to know exactly what's going on. However, as she doesn't want anything to get in the way of her plans, she doesn't tend to have much fun. Or any really.

Even though Frith is out in the middle of no-where, her celebrity sister Saffron, is planning the wedding of the year and when she has a melt-down, she enlists Frith to help. Saffron is as opposite to Frith as you can imagine and the contrast in characters was a good one. Saffron isn't actually in the story too much but her being around makes Frith panic and change how she acts. This is where love interest George comes in. Frith needs a date to one of Saffron's parties and George has been asking her out for ages. While Frith just wants a favour, George wants much more.

The banter between Frith and George was funny throughout the whole book, especially as one character was more into the other to begin with. The two characters are also quite different so their personalities coming together was interesting and entertaining. The journey the pair goes on was light-hearted but also sweet and romantic at the same time. While this is an adult novel, there is no adult content in the ways of sex scenes etc. so this will appeal to readers younger than adult age as well.

It's been quite some time since I've read any chick lit but Jessica Hart reminded me of why I like it so much. The story was a lovely, easy read and one that was entertaining throughout.

I read the story in one sitting because I liked the characters so much. Not a lot happens as always the case with Mills and Boon Moderns, but the twist in the story is the female is a business woman who has goals and visions that causes romance to fall second place, whilst the male has recently been expunged from his wealthy family but is fun.
Jessica Hart is one of the better M&B writers who's words flow beautifully.

A great read from Jessica Hart. Loved Frith and George, and how George slowly changed Frith from the uptight, plan everything person, to a more relaxed, take a chance character. Loved the interactions between Frith and George, and how they both learned to compromise and grow as people

It took me a while to get into this book as it's writing as the person and I found it a bit boring to start with
