    Excellent Enemies to Lovers story

    I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+ in exchange for a fair review. The Rogue to Ruin by Vivienne Lorret is the third book in her The Misadventures in Matchmaking Series. It can be read as a stand-alone but I enjoyed the other two books and recommend reading them as well. The story is a very well done tale of enemies to lovers with an excellent cast of eccentric supporting characters, a ragged old tomcat who ends up being a bit of a hero and an extremely nasty villain. Ainsley Bourne is attempting to keep her family afloat by running a matchmaking business and and she’s struggling a bit because her sisters have made two of the matches and people think she is looking to make a match as well. She is also convinced that having a Gambling Club a few doors down is not good for her business and has vowed to put and end to it. Reed Sterling has built his business up from nothing, a former bare knuckled fighter he used his winnings to establish the club and no nose in the air spinster is put him out of business, besides he enjoys watching her get all riled up. I very much enjoyed watching these two grow to realise that their antagonism was really masking attraction. Medium Stream.

    A Regency romance that engages all of the senses

    This engrossing Regency romance engages all of the senses. I was captivated from the opening pages right through to the closing chapter. I found myself laughing out loud in parts and had tears in my eyes at others, as there is humour, suspense and romance all wrapped up in one package. I especially enjoyed the fact that the plot is about ordinary people who have surmounted obstacles and overcome them. Ainsley is self-contained and in control of every aspect of her life, and I am sure that there will be many women who will identify with her, as I did myself. Reed is a successful, self-made businessman, but he could have turned out so differently. His youthful experiences have made him more caring and protective towards women, and not the other way around. When he recognises the signs of violence in Ainsley's past, he takes special care to approach her carefully and slowly wins her trust. When pushed into a corner, a panicked Ainsley states her understanding with Reed and although shocked, he quickly assesses the danger to her, and acknowledges that he is betrothed to her. That of course sets in motion a whole chain of events, both hilarious and tragic. It seems that this book cannot have the one without the other and consequently I found myself going from one extreme of emotions to the other within seconds. This is a truly enjoyable novel and not one to be overlooked. I received a copy of this book as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.

    Gambling Hell against a Matrimony Agency

    Of the 3 books in the Misadventures in Matchmaking, this novel was the best. Reed Sterling owns the gaming hell across from Ainsley's Matrimonial Agency. And this presents a huge problem, as his customers scare off her marriage minded patrons. Uncle Ernest is supposed to be the head of this family, but he spends what little money is made from the Agency, with his poetry and flowers and wooing females who come thru the door. So it is up to Ainsley to try and keep the bills paid and food on the table and looking after her sisters. Reed , on the other hand is bent on making his gambling hell the best in London. Reed was born a commoner , and suffered at the hands of many aristocrats in his life and he doesn't feel any pity on the ones who loose big time in his gaming Hell. And he isn't going to let a spoiled, rich spinster put him out of business. From the first there is a chemistry between them that they try to deny, as they watch each other secretly . Who is Mrs. Teasdale ? She has been around since book one, lurking, knitting, giving advice. A funny, sweet, romantic novel, with enough heat to keep it interesting ! Loved the epilogue. ... I am looking forward to the next series.
