  • Strongly recommended

    I'm a huge fan of Georgette Heyer and I liked this book that reminded me of hers. It's a fun and entertaining read that kept me hook. I liked the likeable and well thought cast of characters, the unusual plot and the humour. I look forward to reading other books by this author.

  • Book 4

    This is book 4 in the husband hunters series but it can be read as a stand alone. This is the story of Lady Harriet and Viscount Wynford, Charles Harriet (Harry) has been a paid ladies companion for many years. Charles has secretly been working as a spy for the government. When his sister shows up unexpectedly in town, Charles realizes he needs help in chaperoning his sister, so he asks Harry, a distant relative, for help. So begins the adventure and romance of Harriet and Charles. The story was good, a very good mystery to be solved. The romance was okay. I just didn't feel the chemistry between them. Hence the 4 stars. I want to thank Netgalley for the chance to review this book.

  • Really interesting

    I haven't read the rest of the series, but it didn't stop me from enjoying this book. I really liked the heroine, Harriet, a governess who is contacted by Charles Davenham, viscount of Wynwood, the hero, to help his sister Octavia navigate London's society in her pursue of a husband for Christmas time. I liked that this was a slow burn and that the characters' feelings developed realistically. What I didn't like was Octavia, the hero's sister. She was naive, and her behaviour most of the time didn't make sense. The supposed explanation of her motivations wasn't enough and it needed more dept. All in all, it was a good Historical Romance, and I loved the Christmas vibes. And I'm really curious about the rest of the series.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A sweet story of trusting

    When a governess meets the spy whom makes her realize what she has been missing all this years ... I confess it took me quite a time to adapt myself to the author’s writing style, less modern than what I usually read. This story even with its spy side, is closer to the classic tales, and it was its charm that captivated me. Harriet has reshaped her life in a mere Miss when she left everything behind to avoid an unwanted marriage. Still, now as an invisible companion, she longs for more. Charles thought he had everything in hands when his sister’s impromptu arrival derails everything. Why himself caught between two fires, his mission and protecting his sister. Their tale is a slow burn romance, they first have to get to know one another and their trust is often tested, and when they think they understood the other, something comes disrupting all. It is no steamy read, only kisses were exchanged but the plot was about trusting and accepting the other to finally let go of past constraints which is finally accomplished by the end of the book. Plus the background storyline hold a lot of attention, as the vilain pulls aplenty of strings to bring the hero to his knees, and he will need many helps, even unsuspected to get out of this. It was an intriguing foray in the spy’s world, but what I loved the most what the Christmas game created by Harriet and the family’s love the characters shared for those they cared for. 4 stars I was granted an advance copy by the publisher through Netgalley, I also preordered my own. Here is my true and unbiased opinion.
