what a gem

This was my first book by this author. And I was so impressed. The plotting is strong, the characters are so engaging. Lady Althea was so winning, bright and captiving. Hart, well, he steals your heart. So arrogant and Lady Althea leads him on a merry romp.For a first book, this is a very impressive story. I look forward to more from this promising writer.

W-O-W. Don't miss this one!

William Cavendar "Hart" was the Marquess of Hartingfield. He was happy to escape London, and the scheming mothers, for a bit. Hart escorted his American friend, Paul McCormack "Mack", to Steyne Hall. There, Bremington Candler, the Earl of Steyne, would look over the drill improvements the American had done and perhaps purchase them. Hart met a young lady chasing a piglet through the house and assumed her to be a servant. I must skip much here or spoil the highly amusing happenings. The reader knew from the beginning that the servant was really Lady Althea "Thea", the Earl's daughter. Hart ended up compromising Thea, even after all the hilarious things Thea had done to make Hart think her wanton and leave in disgust! Once compromised, Thea refused marriage! She wanted a local lad. Lord Steyne sent Thea, chaperoned by her friend named Emma, to London for a Season. Thea would stay with Aunt Prunella who would present her at Court and to society. Lord Steyne made Hart VERY aware that Thea would wed for only love. Since Hart compromised her, Hart had one Season to convince Thea that she loved him and agree to marriage. ***** To sum this book up, Hart was not looking to fall in love, but did. However, Thea did NOT want him! The author, Kathy Carmichael, made Thea a total delight to watch in action. Thea was anything but predictable! I read this book while it was slow at work. (I work third shifts.) I found myself actually laughing aloud! Three times I spied fellow third-shifters peering into my department to see what was going on. I let them read a few parts and they left with the author's name and book title so they could order copies for themselves. I found this romance to be a rip-roaring-romp of hilarious chaos and I cannot recommend it highly enough. DO NOT MISS THIS STORY! You will NOT be disappointed! ***** Reviewed by Detra Fitch of Huntress Reviews.
