3,5 estrellas.

Apenas me he leído el libro en un par de horas (le dejé aparcado por otro tipo de situaciones, no porque no me gustara y cuando le he retomado ha sido un enganche total). Es una historia sencilla y con alguna originalidad que ha hecho que la lectura fuese aún más interesante.

La historia se retoma con el misterio que la autora planteó en el libro anterior, acerca de si las tres hermanas mellizas Royle son o no quien dicen ser y con Anne, nuestra protagonista, metiéndose en la boca d

El primer libro estuvo centrado en la mayor de las Hermanas Royle, Mary (y el duque de Blackstone), a la vez que por la frenética búsqueda de la verdad de su linaje. « no recuerdo haberlo mencionado en la review anterior »

En este segundo, la historia para encontrar las cartas que confirmen su verdadero linaje, sigue muy presente, pero la protagonista es Anne Royle, la mediana de las hermanas, y su encuentro con Laird MacLaren.
A grandes rasgos, el romance entre Anne y el Laird es
Because I read the first book, I snagged the second in the series from interlibrary loan. I read it in about 2 hours, but didn't seriously read it, mostly skimming. It didn't really catch my interest. The "mystery" is very weak and in this book, the male protagonist is weak as well.

I'm debating whether or not to waste my time with the final book in the series. I think I'll live if I never read another book by this author.

There was much of "To Engage an Earl" by Kathryn Cassie that was delightful and very entertaining. But the plot toward the end of book took several rather predictable turns that seemed intended to lengthen the book for no logical reason. The book needed additional work in order to create a well written resolution. Contains graphic sexual content.

I think my expectations were low - so it was with great surprise that I really enjoyed this book! I liked both main characters ( which does not often happen!), the story was pretty good along with the ensemble and overall just a really nice quick easy read. I will probably try and read the other two books in the series.

Me parece una historia con más matices que la primera aunque la mary me gusta más en su libro que Anne en este

This book was cute. I loved the first chapter.

I found this on Amazon:

"Reticent and clearly "invisible" next to her vibrant siblings, Anne Royle sneaks into the bedroom of the Earl of MacLaren Laird Allan in search of letters that will prove she and her sisters have royal connections. MacLaren awakens and immediately assumes the beauty is here for a tryst. As he takes advantage of her seduction, his family charges into the room as if the devil is chasing them. They demand an explanation; Anne im

Me ha gustado mucho! ...Solo hubiera deseado haber leído primero "Cómo seducir a un Duque", aunque me pareció que no es necesario que se lea primero ya que cada uno de los libros cuenta por separado la historia de una de las hermanas Royle.

En "Cómo atrapar a un Conde" conocemos la historia de Anne una chica que al parecer pasa desapercibida ante los ojos de cualquiera y al libertino Laird Conde de MacLaren que no desea otra cosa más que su reputación quede limpia. Ambos quedan atrapados en un c

An amusing story, though I quite dislike how all the big, strong, handsome men always turn out to have some Scottish in them. I mean, really, "Laird"? This one definitely reads like a contemporary romance, so if you're scared off by the "regency" label, don't be. There's very little Regency in there at all; the way the characters interact gives you the feeling that they're play-acting Regency society, rather than being part of it. If you're a stickler for historical details and are offended by a ...more
This was a really fun read!! Anne had me cracking up most of the time! It is a bit formula but still very enjoyable. The mystery behind the girl birth is kinda confusing.

I really liked the beginning of the story it was very amusing especially Anne sneaking in the bedchamber and getting caught! Plenty of steamy scenes to keep it interesting!

Now that I started the series I feel like I need to finish and that means I need to pick up the last book!

Just like with the previous one, I skimmed through this book. I didn't relate to Laird Allan, the hero. In fact, I rather liked Laird's friend, Viscount Apsley, more than Laird. Anne Royle is a great heroine, but her other half didn't cut it for me.

Overall, I liked Mary's (the first sister) book better than this one.

Fun and easy to read romance.

Laird and Anne become engaged temporarily to avoid a scandal from her being caught in his room. She wants to use this to find documents surrounding her parentage. He want to use this to show his desired spouse that he has changed. Little do they realize how this fake engagement will impact them and their families

Excruciating. Couldn't finish it. Horrible dialog. Clunky plot. Dreadful love scenes.

Nice little mystery going on with this trilogy. But I sort of wish it would wrap up quicker but of course, that is part of the whole plot right LOL? On to the next one!

More like 3.5* I liked this book more than the first. The characters were fun and engaging and I really believed their love story. Very cute. I am definitely looking forward to the next book.

Nice quick read - there were a few bits of the story, at the very end, that I was slightly confused by, but perhaps I missed something (was reading while nursing).

Second book in a trilogy and was disappointing. It still had some funny parts, as the Royle sisters definitely get into trouble in Regency London, but it was missing something.

I really enjoyed this one. Even though I didn't care for the first book in the series, the mystery made me curious enough to read this one and to go looking for the third one.
