    Keep The Tissues Handy

    Lady Francine Annesley is a botanist. She is happiest working in the hot house with her plants. Unfortunately her father has decided it's time she got married. She has never been popular with the "ton" and never tried to be. Julian Beckwith is delighted to meet up with his childhood friend. They had not seen each other in years, but corresponded regularly until a few months ago. He is only visiting London for a short while before he takes on his commitments. He seems to spend his time rescuing Francine from mishaps. Get the tissues out when you settle in to read this. Our heroine has a very upsetting time in this story. It doesn't matter how intelligent she is, there are some things that are out of her control. Our hero is normally a honourable man and will suffer from his conscience. There is also quite a bit of fun with the escapades her friend Mary gets her into. I have a feeling she may be the heroine in a future book. I look forward to reading it. I loved this one.

    I enjoyed their story

    'How to Ruin Your Reputation in 10 Days' by Harmony Williams is book Two in the "Ladies of Passion" series. This is the story of Julian Beckwith and Francine Annesley. Francine is down to the wire in finding a husband since she has been on the marriage mart for several seasons. Now this season will be over in just 10 days, so the pressure is really on now. During one of these balls she runs into Julian who has been gone for 10 years. Julian had been great friends with Francine when growing up and they have kept in touch through letters..but have not actually seen each other in years. So Francine didn't recognize him since he has changed so much. Francine's mother likes him but she pretty much made it clear that she wants Francine to marry into a Title which Julian doesn't really have. Can these friends become something more? Series Order: Book #1 How to Play the Game of Love Book #2 How to Ruin Your Reputation in 10 Days "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

    It takes a gifted author to tackle sexism ...

    It takes a gifted author to tackle sexism and self - esteem while crafting characters that are remarkably independent but still struggle with many vulnerabilities. How to Ruin Your Reputation in 10 Days takes place during a time when being a woman was considered a disability. Women were seen as window dressing more than anything else. Francine seeks to change that. She's quite book smart but lacks the ability to interact and read people. Her challenges and fears are put on full display when an ultimatum is issued. With marriage on the agenda but no matches of the heart on the horizon, will this ultimate outsider find her forever love? Or will she discover her savior has had her back all along?

    Parental Threats Lead to Love for Childhood Friend

    With only ten days left in the season, Miss Francine Annesley is given an ultimatum by her father. Find a husband by the end of the season or she gets shipped off to a convent. For a young lady more interested in plants than the workings of a ton marriage, this is no easy task. When the childhood friend she has corresponded with since they were separated ten years before comes back into her life, things get even more complicated. Julian Beckwith is the youngest son of a baronet, but is a wealthy land owner and farmer on his own. Not set to inherit a title or have one bestowed on him, Julian is unsuitable according to Francine’s father. There is also a reason Julian is unable to marry Francine which is a twist in two parts. This novel stood out from many others for more than one reason. The most noticeable reason is the story is told from the first person point of view of Francine. For historical romance, this is a risk, but I believe Williams succeeded brilliantly. I really felt I was seeing all of Francine, climbing in her skin and living her life. Francine is a dynamic character with hopes and dreams caught in a horrid situation by her own father. The journey she takes from beginning to end is full of uphill battles and decisions that show her growing into the woman she was born to be. I look forward to reading about more of Williams passionate ladies as the series continues! I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
