Sequel to "Who WILL TAKE THIS MAN "

Catherine Ashfield, Viscountess Bickley, is a widow and mother just out of mourning. She has had an unhappy marraige, with her husband and society turning their back on her son Spencer, because he has a clubbed foot. She helps a friend Genevieve with the writing of a book "The Ladies guide" published under the name Charles Brightmore. This book causes uproar and it is loved by women and hated by men. Needless to say the men don't like the changes in their women

Premise seemed promising, but the book never delivered.

It was a struggle to read.

Was ok, but failed to engage me.
Why do I finish these books? I guess so I can justify the rating. Dumb!

The characters in this book were extremely irritating. The heroine was determined to never fall in love again due to a bad first marriage. She begins to fall in love with the hero of the story, but spends the entire book giving herself stern lectures as to how this can't happen no matter how wonderful he is. She has a son from her first marriage who was born with a club foot and society treated him cruelly so they hide out in the country where nobody can ever be mean to him again.

The hero of the

Regency romance with sex. #2 in the series. This is Catherine, Phillip's sister & his best friend, Andrew's story. A favorite reread.

We find out that the love of Andrew's life is in fact Catherine, Phillip's sister. He's loved her for years, on the basis of the letters she sent to Phillip during their travels. Her deadbeat husband is dead now, & it's just her and her son. Andrew sets out to woo her, but an attempt on her life has him in protection mode.

I really enjoyed this story. The

I really enjoyed this one! (I just wished I had read book 1 of the Regency series before I read this, as Andrew appeared in that book. But this book is totally standalone.) I just absolutely loved Andrew. In so many romance books, it's the man who fights love. But not Andrew...he started out in love. I wanted to shake some sense into Catherine at times, but could understand her reticence. I especially loved the interaction between Andrew and Spencer, Catherine's son. There was also a nice bit of ...more

C'est la suite de "le marié maudit", pour information: Catherine, Lady Bickley est la sœur de Philippe, vicomte Greybourne le héros du précédent tome. j'ai hâte de le lire.

Roman achevé en un temps record, ce n'est franchement pas le meilleur, un peu triste la façon dont Andrew est amoureux et dont Catherine est devenue cynique c'était un peu malheureux, même si on comprend ses souffrances donc ses raisons de ne pas vouloir d'attaches, mais j'ai bien aimé le roman dans son ensemble et la fin est

I very much enjoyed reading Catherine and Andrew's story. Just enough had been revealed in the first book in this series "Who Will Take This Man?"
that I had been curious to know just who Andrew had spent 6 six years loving from afar.

The story also included an intriguing mystery laced throughout the developing romance.

I would recommend you read the first book to get the full understanding of the museum undertaking.
Overall "Love and the Single Heiress" is an enjoyable read.
This novel started out well enough but petered out about 3/4 of the way through and the last quarter barely got a skim-through from me.

You could do worse in your desperation, but I cannot recommend it.

Loved, loved, loved the hero and the story. Wonderfully written love story. I wish the heroine had come to her senses sooner, that was the only downfall of the book for me. Also enjoyed the mystery storyline, as well as the friendship between the hero and the heroine's son, Spencer.

Había leído malas criticas por lo que me imagine lo peor, no es malo pero tampoco es extraordinario, he leído mejores libros de esta escritora
la pareja me ha gustado y su historia de amor es una más
The hero was wonderful, the heroine was an idiot who didn't deserve such an awesome hero, and the story was decent. I got most of the way through before I got so disgusted with the heroine that I decided to stop. *sigh*

Catherine should look up the word "author" in the dictionary.

It seemed that the characters were never happy throughout the entire novel. I would have liked the book to have a lighter tone to it.
