Better story than the second book but equally as funny and entertaining as the first. More details about the St. John brothers unfold in this novel. Details about the hero & heroine's lovemaking is way juicier and sizzling than the first 2 books though.

loved it .. first book I read of this author and was very happy..

This is Chase St. John's story and the third in the series. As I began each of these first three books and got the gist of the story, I couldn't help myself. I smiled. On beginning Chase's story my smile turned into a chuckle and I chuckled until the end. I seemed to know what was coming next and how it would end and I chuckled. I am back to smiling now. It was a fun read and I think you will enjoy it...thumbs up on this series.
Harriet is the best. Enough said. Loving this series and I love how I always read them out of order. Oh well. This one was pretty adorable and addicting. Good spin on the well used amnesia plotline -oh, and I really enjoyed Harriet's mother and four siblings. They cracked me up. Along with Chase's brothers when they finally tracked him down.

This book reminded me just why I like Karen Hawkins and her writing so much.
I love Harriet!!! She's strong, she speeks her mind, she takes care for her family and she isn't afraid to love and feel passion.
I like how you see Chase grow from a spoiled boy who tries to outrun his mistakes and who's to proud to ask for help into a confident, hard-working, loving young man.
I can't say anything negative about this book. It's fun, entertaining and endearing. I think I've found a new favorite author!

Thus far. my favorite of the series. I had a feeling it would be. :)
Another good book in the saga of the St. John brothers by Karen Hawkins. Chase St. John needs a place to escape his demons and Harriet Ward needs a fake fiance. Right place at the right time for Chase and a love story begins. Worth a read, not as adventure or mystery packed as others in the Talisman Ring series but with a satisfying ending. I can't wait for Devon's story.
I wonder if there is really such a ring. This is the first book from Karen Hawkins and I must say that it is a good read. Romance, magic and with a little bit of old England, it captured my interest especially when the characters and the story is so easy to love. I'm currently looking for the other books from this series. Hope they're available in the Phils.
Okay regency, but not nearly as good as the previous two books in the series. Neither hero or heroine had my sympathies and I found it hard to stay interested. Hopefully the next two will be better. 3/5

Not as good as the first two in the series. I liked the characters and the story, but it dragged in the middle. 3 1/2 stars.

This book wasn’t bad, I thought it was ridiculous her having that many sisters and them being so desperate for a husband.
A light, quick, happy romance. Especially endearing was the Harriet's irrepressible family.
Here as a ring, amusing read. Nice little snack of a book, a few laughs, nothing weighty.
that was really good.I should re-read it now that I think about it......more
I never really got into this book enough to enjoy it.

“Money, or the lack of it, haunted him. Oh, not because he had so little. He was, in fact, very wealthy. It was the beggarliness of his companion that caused him the most pain.” 2 likes
“Nonsense. One day, the right man will come along, and you’ll change your mind.”
Harriet wasn’t so sure. In all her twenty-four years, she’d never met a single man who had managed to make her feel anything more than acute irritation.”
