Ambrose, Marquess of Dorset and Lady Clementine Hammond have reasons not to like each other. Unfortunately, due to embarrassing circumstances they find themselves in an engagement. As they spend time in each other’s company so they begin to revise their opinion of each other. Could this false engagement become real? There are some humorous moments, passionate kisses and true friendship between old school friends. There is a mystery concerning a valet and a little boy called Ewan keeps popping up but no-one seems to know who he belongs to. I’m looking forward to reading more of the stories from this house party. I received a copy and have voluntarily reviewed it. All thoughts 💭are my own.
One of my favourite tropes - enemies to lovers. I loved the storyline and the wit of the book and I enjoyed it immensely but it felt different from Scarlett's other books. 1) it’s much shorter than her usual books and 2) the steamy scenes are only at the end of the book. I think it’s different because this is not Scarlett’s own series but she shares it with other authors. It’s still an excellent read but I would have liked the book to be longer with a bit more depth.
This is an amazingly crafted first book in a promising start to the series. This plot (which is a bit steamy at the end), follows a group of friends who have unique journeys in which to navigate, before finding their hearts desires. This is a very gripping and enjoyable read.
Lovely, engrossing story of enemies to lovers. Lady Clementine Hammond has a reputation for being a matchmaker, since she has caught several couples in compromising situations and pushed them into marrying. Ambrose, the Marquess of Dorset, lost his first love to one of Clementine's matches and has since gone a-raking. Forced together at a house party, and an incident that leads to a false betrothal these two discover the real people beneath the faces they show to the world. Loved going on the journey with this couple and look forward to reading about the other couples attending the party. Highly recommend.
I always enjoy Miss Scott's books but this story, the first in a new series had me crying with laughter. Comedic moments can sometimes be the hardest thing to write in romance but Scarlett does it so well here. The interaction between the hero and heroine about what she should call him was a classic! Who is the little scamp running around nicking hats? Thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait for the next after reading the snippet about the hoity toity viscount and the good time gal. Thumbs up from me.
