    It didn't do it for me.

    2.25* I received an eARC at no cost from the author, and I am leaving a voluntary and honest review. Thank you. This is the second book I’ve read written by Sophie Barnes and… I think her books just aren’t for me. It took me forever to read the book and, honestly, having finished it yesterday, I barely remember anything from it. I didn’t connect with the characters, I wasn’t a fan of either Emily or Griffin. The book just didn’t do it for me. It was all about miscommunication, and jealousy, and insecurities. Instead of being invested in the characters, I found myself wanting to slap them. The writing was good, the problem for me was the plot and characters. Sadly, it didn’t do it for me.

    A bumpy love story, with a very satisfying ending.

    Emily Howard is a spinster and she is rather happy in life. She lives with her friend Cassandra and they care for orphaned children. Their friend Mary lived with them until she married a duke named Caleb. Emily does want one thing, however. While in London at a party Mary and Caleb are hosting, Emily wishes could experience a kiss, even if it should never happen again. The only man she can imagine kissing her is Griffin Crawford, Caleb's brother. Eleven years previously, Griffin, along with brothers Caleb and Devlin, fled their father as he set paths for their lives none of them wanted. They all went their separate ways and have only gotten back together a year ago. Griffin met Emily when he was looking for his brother Caleb. While drawn to her, marriage is the furthest thing from his mind so he never pursued her. Catching her alone one evening affords Griffin a unique opportunity. However, there were caught during their very brief kiss, but it was enough that Emily's mother demanded betrothal, as Emily has been compromised. The last thing Emily wants is to be married to a man due to force, not love, so she flees back to the country. Quite worried, Griffin goes after her. She is distraught and alone, and Griffin fears for her safety. The two spend time together and it is apparent that they have a powerful connection. However, there is a problem they are both more than aware of. Griffin is only in England temporarily. He has a successful business in another country and longs to return to that life. Their road to love is very bumpy indeed. Respect and honor are quite evident, but their future certainly isn't promised. It was a pleasure to read this story while watching the conflict evolve. This sweet story led to a satisfying conclusion. I look forward to the third book in this series, which will no doubt have Cassandra's and Devlin's stories. Many thanks to Sophie Barnes and to NetGalley for this ARC to review in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Sometimes a Kiss is all it takes!

    Appearing in society again after six years being in the country with her friends, Emily never thought to return. But here she was now that one of those friends, Mary, was now the Duchess of Camberly at a ball. What did she have to offer? No dowry, but her changed appearance from a podgy girl her mother dressed in terrible dresses, to a spinster with curves seemed to hold the interest of some gentlemen who seemed eager to dance with her. But she had never even been kissed! Griffin, one of three triplets, with the oldest having inherited the Dukedom of Camerly, was there at the ball with his brothers but anxious to return to Vienna. But when he caught a glimpse of Emily going outside, on the arm of Mr. Bale, he had to follow. He had thought Emily was the most beautiful woman in the world when he had met her and Mr Bale had a gleam in his eye. Well after Mr Bale was quickly dealt with, one thing led to another and Emily found herself being kissed by Griffin. Wait, how did that happen? The man she thought was the handsomest man in the world? Unfortunately, or maybe just fortunately, they were observed by none other than Emily's mother, aunt and sister. Her mother was estatic and announced now Emily she was estatic because "You are finally to be married!" Of course Emily did the only thing she could and ran because she knew he would not really want to be forced to marry her! The adventue begins and I have to say this was a delightful story and I truly loved Emily and Grant! Their banter and attraction that each tries to deny is priceless. She fains the kiss did nothing for her while he had felt a definite sizzle! Well, you will just have to see how this dance turns out in their journey to love with a lot of interference and past secrets coming to light. You do not want to miss this one or the first in this wonderful series! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Great historical romance.

    Miss Emily Howard has given up on being anything but a spinster. She can’t help though, wanting more, even just a kiss. When she gets a chance, she gets her first kiss by Griffin Crawford, and oh what a kiss. There was a lot of passion. Unfortunately, there were seen meaning a wedding needed to happen or there were be a scandal and her reputation would be in tatters. In deference to his feelings she flees. Now what? This is a historical romance filled with passion, sacrifice and surprises. There are good characters with interesting personalities that help you become interested in the story. The storyline is romantic as he purses her and includes surprises, twists and turns. The finish and epilogue are amazing and uplift the reader. There is emotional drama as the characters overcome their internal battles, past histories and the other barriers placed before them. This is the second in a series and can be read alone. I can not wait to read the other stories. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
