About the Book:

 

In 1814 London, England, a lady is defined as a demure, delicate flower. Miss Francine Annesley is not that lady. If men were like plants, she would have a garden of admirers to choose from instead of the thorn in her side since childhood, Julian Beckwith. But she would make an even worse nun than she does a lady, which will be her fate if she can’t dig up a husband before the Season ends. However, Julian is not an option.
With only ten short days left in the Season, Francine doesn’t have time to waste on petty squabbles or knee-weakening kisses, even if Julian’s offer to fulfill her every wish rouses her curiosity. It seems men are more complicated than plants. Too bad love bloomed at the most inconvenient of times…

My thoughts:

How to Lose Your Reputation in 10 days by Harmony Williams is an interesting and engaging Historical Romance set in 1814 England. While, #2 it can be read as a stand alone. See, “How to Play the Game of Love”, #1.

This is my first time reading Harmony Williams, I have to say I was totally entranced and intrigued by her charactizations, her vivid descriptions and her storytelling.

Miss Francine Annesley is not a  demure lady, but has book sense and intelligence.  Julian Beckwith has been a thorn in Francine’s side since childhood. A friends to lovers kind of romance, one of my favorite kinds of Historical Romance.

A sweet, funny and utterly adorable read from beginning to end. Francine and Julian make such an great couple. They’re engaging, believable and realistic. Ms. Williams has done a great job of interweaving sexism, self – esteem and vulnerabilities into a story with depth and understanding.

My only complaint,  and not sure I’d call it a true complaint, I don’t usual enjoy first person stories, but, I enjoyed this one. Ms. Williams made me forget it was written in first person. A great read, with many facets to a great story.

I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own
