    Loved it!!

    Another beautiful story by Julie Johnstone! A sweet, romantic, and charming novel that kept me glued to the pages. I loved how Philip and Jemma got together to help each other, but later they had to fight the attraction and feelings growing between them. Jemma’s sister Anne’s story also got me hooked, and I hope there will be a future book about her soon. I really love how Julie brings every story to life and how she makes the reader feel as if she/he is part of the story! Happy reading! I received an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Great story!

    Jemma is a woman who has been duped by her first love. Intent on not wanting to ever make that mistake again, her goal is to earn enough money to be independent and have her own bakery, just like her mother. That's not easy when her grandfather has different plans. Lord Hawthorne, otherwise known as Philip, has a debt to fulfill and marriage to a wealthy woman is his only way out. But he feels he is too much of a gentleman to win a lady's heart, and is intent on changing his reputation to gain a wealthy wife. As the two of them work together, Jemma to foil her grandfather's plan, and Philip to turn himself into a rogue to be wanted by the ladies of the ton, the reader roots for the two of them to acknowledge their feelings for each other! This is a really great story. The characters are very likeable from the beginning. Ms. Johnstone's characters are always so full of life that you can imagine having tea and getting along famously with them. While this is book 3 in her Once Upon a Rogue series, it can be read as a standalone. Or as the first book of many you pick up to read by this author. ;)

    Philip & Jemma's cinderella story

    I was taken away by this lovely romance. It's almost like a true Cinderella story. I loved the characters of Philip and Jemma, their story is so different than many I read. All the characters in the book are wonderful, from the stiff, up-right butler to the oh so proper and gruff Duke, who is really a kind and soft hearted grandfather in disguise. Of course I love revisiting with the other wonderful characters of the Once Upon a Rogue series and how they come together in this book. There were plenty of surprises in Philip and Jemma's story, and some adventure also. It was wonderful to finally get Philip's story, and get to know him more. He has overcome a lot, and has always put his families needs first over his own. His poetic soul and romantic heart are revealed in his search for a wife, one who can help restore his estates, and can awaken his heart. All that and more come to life in My Enchanting Hoyden. I highly recommend this book and all the books in this series. They are amazing stories.

    The Best Rogue Novel!!!

    I must say that this is my absolute favorite novel by Ms. Johnstone!!!! I adored it!!!! Here is what I learned from the 2 main characters: Jemma: Even when one is hurt by a past betrayals, you must learn to love again. Otherwise you are only punishing yourself!!! Phillip: Always remain true to yourself, do not try to be something you are not, because your true self will always outshine!!! Jemma is a very lively spirit who is beautifully complemented by Phillip. She does not need to be tame, she needs to be loved. Phillip knows that he wants to marry for the right reason (love and companionship), but he must determine is financial gain is more important. He knows that becoming something he is not, will never gain him the love he searches for. Of all the Rogue novels, I always liked Phillip's story the best! He deserved to be loved by the right woman, and Jemma is the one!! I thoroughly enjoy the Once Upon A Rogue Novels. Each novel can stand alone, but the stories are so fascinating, you will want to read the others. I especially like how Ms. Johnstone still uses the other characters from past novels within the story, so as a reader, you will not wonder what has happened to them. :D Everyone is within the same circle of friends, although each novel is vastly different!!

    Fun and poetic romance

    My Enchanting Hoyden was a bit slower to get into than Julie Johnstone's other novels but It was by no means any less entertaining. Learning a new character took time and I loved her once I knew her. This book is also a standalone as are the others in this series, but the experience would be so much richer if you read it from the beginning. This series has been one of my favorites. The characters are fun and their personalities are definitely unique. Philip is the sweet poet surrounded by his rakish friends who have all found love but him. Now he must marry wealth or find himself destitute and his mother humiliated. One he could stand the other he couldn't stomach. Jemma on the other hand is strong willed and a little hoyden. She has strong opinions and one is that men are untrustworthy. When she is whisked to London by her Grandfather the Duke of Rowan whom she has never met but has heard all kinds of stories, she is ready to fight. Especially when he tells her he has her a suitor waiting for her. Angry sparks fly from Jemma as well as some attraction she refuses to acknowledge when she finally meets Philip. Jemma is determined to never marry. While Philip has come up with a hair brained scheme to find his match. They are determined to help each other. And with a bit of help from their friends everything is bound to work out as it should. I loved seeing characters from the previous books in this series. It always gives me a smile when I see characters I know. They are just as they were if a bit wiser and more in love. My Enchanting Hoyden is full of spontaneous poetry, hoydenish actions, and boundless attraction. The perfect recipe for a fun romance. I highly recommend this book as well as the others in this series if you hadn't already read them.
