Publisher's Summary

When wills clash and hearts collide, who will reign victorious?

Termed an Incomparable during her first London season, Lady Harriett Cavendish is beautiful, spirited, and confident, capturing the attention of a great many suitors. Unfortunately, they all failed to capture her attention, and she concluded the season as unattached as she'd begun it.

Only weeks prior to her second season, Harriett encounters Lieutenant Christopher Jamison while visiting Tanglewood Manor. Recently returned from war, the lieutenant is everything that Harriett's previous suitors were not. He's arrogant, ungentlemanly, irritating, and challenges her at every opportunity. When he goes too far, Harriett decides that it's time to turn the tables on him. But as she sets out to put the lieutenant in his place once and for all, she discovers there is more to him than meets the eye, and when it comes to matters of the heart, she has no control whatsoever.

Intoxicating love story

Adorable and very well developed characters and believable storyline. I️ never like the second and third books as much as the first however this is one situation where I️ adore the third better than even the first two books in a series. The love development was beautifully done although no passionate scenes were courtesied in. Hate to finish the book but alas all good things must come to an end. Would have loved the light clever banter to continue between the hero and heroine. Conversations between the two were hilarious. So much so that I️ laughed out loud throughout the book. Do NOT hesitate to purchase.

Humorous and Heartwarming

This is the perfect example of why I listen to audio books! I want to be uplifted from the pressures of life, reminded of spiritual values, laugh some and be delighted with the happy ending! Thank you so much Rachael Anderson. The narration was perfect! Helen Taylor.
I will listen to this book again.

A great end to the series

WHAT IT'S ABOUT
Termed an Incomparable during her first London season, Lady Harriett Cavendish is beautiful, spirited, and confident, capturing the attention of a great many suitors. Unfortunately, they all failed to capture her attention, and she concluded the season as unattached as she’d begun it.

Only weeks prior to her second season, Harriett encounters Lieutenant Christopher Jamison while visiting Tanglewood Manor. Recently returned from war, the lieutenant is everything that Harriett's previous suitors were not. He’s arrogant, ungentlemanly, irritating, and challenges her at every opportunity. When he goes too far, Harriett decides that it’s time to turn the tables on him. But as she sets out to put the lieutenant in his place once and for all, she discovers there is more to him than meets the eye, and when it comes to matters of the heart, she has no control whatsoever.

MY TAKE
Talk about a story of misunderstandings and fear of speaking. Anderson does a wonderful job of setting up the challenges that both Harriett and Chris will deal with in the story, including painting another person with expectations that don't fit them and fear of showing one's true emotions. There was a lot of humor in the story--Chris was certainly quick to see it. Unfortunately, it came across as insensitive and a little mocking, so it was easy to see why Harriett was so easily offended.

The "battle" between them ran on a little long for me, but the tender moments when they would show the other a glimmer of the person inside was the reward. Each learned a lot from the other and the meeting in the middle was very satisfying.

I listened to the audiobook, and the narrator Helen Taylor did a fabulous job!

Simple but charming

The protagonist's insecurities might rankle some readers, but for one, I think that's because we all know the feeling much too well, and for two, the narrator did a superb job of giving Harriett's thoughts a rich depth of tone. Delightfully musical and nuanced performance.

A Charming Romance with Lots of Laughter!

I absolutely loved this book; in fact, the whole series. I laughed so hard throughout nearly the entire story of Harriett and Christopher that I actually had to put down my kindle at times. My grandkids were watching me as I tried to compose myself and they asked, "What's so funny, Mom Mom?" (Of course, that just made me laugh more!)

This is the absolutely charming story of Lady Harriett (who tries so hard to be perfect but is actually a bit insecure and has so much amusing self-talk and LOTS of little quirks) and Lieutenant Christopher Jamison (a man who is charmed and amused by Lady Harriett but a bit out of touch with his emotions). They are, of course, the best friends of Jonathan and Cora from "The Rise of Miss Notley" (book 2 of the series) and are both visiting at Tanglewood. Add in some friendly but a bit odd neighbors and a mini terrier with a big pink bow, and the laughs just keep coming.

This was a sweet and charming romance. Every character throughout this series has been so detailed and believable that I felt I might like to stop by and visit them. Thank you, Rachael Anderson, for 24 hours of laughter with Harry and Chris.

This is more than a 5-star read...and the audible version is PERFECT!

Really enjoyed this book!

Loved this book... found myself laughing out loud whilst on the treadmill at the gym. People probably though I had gone crazy... but I was just thoroughly entertained!!

Not my favorite of this series

I found Harriett to be very annoying. She was hateful from the start to Mr. Jamison, which caused me to wonder what he saw in her, other than her beauty. She disliked everything about the man, and everything he did annoyed her. She came off as a whiny, immature, high school girl, who wanted this man to worship her, and be perfect and romantic toward her, even though she treated him horribly. In stories like these, where the characters hate each other, are annoyed by the other, and don't like who the other person is in general, it makes me wonder where the real love, emotions, and attraction is, other than physical appearance. If a man isn't who you want him to be, then just move on to someone who is. Quit whining and feeling so sorry for yourself, especially when you haven't given him any reason to treat you in a romantic way.

I was very disappointed, because I wanted Harriett to be a strong Elizabeth Bennet type of character. I enjoyed the glimpses of her in the previous books, but this was a huge let down for me. I found little to admire in her. She had so much self-pitty, it was just obnoxious. I felt sorry for Mr. Jamison, and I found myself wanting to warn him to run away as fast as he could. She seemed so self absorbed, as if she would be very hard to keep happy, and that he would be walking on eggshells for the rest of his life. She was so worried about her happiness and what she wanted, and gave little regard to who he was, or what would make him happy.

Predictable

Lady Harriett is shallow and spoiled as far as I can see. I expected her to grow up at some point and realize she was being a brat. Her brother even started the conversation but then backed off. The lieutenant had to reinvent himself in order for the relationship to work. I’m not really sure why he was even attracted to Harriett..
