Willa, the vicar’s little sister knows full well that her prospects are bleak. When she accidentally kisses Alexander Braeburn, her dull predictable world turns upside down. Logic dictates that she should stay away from the handsome Corinthian. He’s the black sheep of their village. But how can she resist?...more
I read the third book in this Regency romance series, Cut from the Same Cloth, and enjoyed it enough that I went diving into the dark depths of my Kindle app to find this one. Apparently I downloaded this a year or two ago when it was a Kindle freebie and then completely forgot about it. (I'm sure I'm the only person who does that.) Anyway, I liked this one even better, mostly because it made me laugh out loud several times.
Wilhelmina, who goes by Willa (another good call! Perfectly ...more

Anyone who is severely near-sighted will find this physical flaw of Willa's to be somewhat plausible as a plot device. As someone who is technically "l ...more
I am happy to say however that my drought has ended and this book is adorable! It states that it is a "humorous regency" and it was. There were parts that I was laughing out loud to. I thought the two main characters were so cute and I myself being blind with out the aid of contacts/glasses found the fact that the heroine shared this same imperfection kind ...more
She can't really see without her glasses so when she takes off her glasses in the garden to kiss Daniel to see if there is any passion there at all, she doesn't realize that she is mis ...more
Moral Note: Talk of rakes, and wanton women, drinking, I don't remember any language, so if there was some it was minor. A somewhat detailed birth of a horse. Talk of a "gaming hell". Tal ...more
I have been in a book slump when it comes to HRs so I decided to find some that didn't have sex scenes but weren't Christian and I can say this first pick has turned out great!
Our bespectacled red haired heroine is the best part. She hasn't seen much of the world but she knows what she wants or in this case, what she doesn't want. And that is to marry to his brother's bff who is as much of a bore as him hehe. Enter our handsome and supposed gambler/rakehell of a hero and we have a tal ...more
Willa and Alex are wonderful characters,and so are the others.

Highly recommended for Regency Romance fans and those who enjoy Romantic comedies.
I simpky lived this book!
I laughed so much and got the happily ever after ...there were the rofl monents , the serious monents, the wth is she about moments...and in all was a terrific read.
Thank you for the smile still etched on my face!
Stars: Overall 3 Narration 1 Story 4
Initially drawn to this title because of the author’s stated enjoyment of Oscar Wilde, the opportunity to have a new series and a new narrator in one go was too much to resist. Baldwin manages to incorporate humor, a wonderful heroine with her own particular way of looking at the world and clever dialogue to keep the story moving forward.

Being responsible for his sister’s entrance into society is really more than Jerome Linnet, a country vicar, was prepared for. So turning to his close friend, Sir Daniel Braeburn, the two scholars come up with a logical solution: Sir Daniel can marry her and the two men can continue life without all that unnecessary fanfare. Willa, the intelligent, young lady in question, questions this conclu ...more
I had read this book last year I believe and just reread it. It's a romance with parts of it being so funny I sat in my room and laughed loudly..so much so that my son came in to ask if I was okay. Willa is our heroine who gets a chance to go to London with her very eccentric, match making aunt. Alex is the brother to the old bachelor Daniel that Willa's brother intends to marry Willa off too. But in steps the aunt with plans to fix Willa up with the right one. It's fun and hila ...more
Make no mistake, Aunt Honore is at it again and when she is involved anything can and does happen, as Willa and Alex quickly find out.
There is so much humor written into this story that it is a pure pleasure to read it.
Of course Willa, the very near sighted sister of a vicar, finds herself falling for Alex, a rogue and her life with Aunt Honore in it soon changes.
I loved the characters and the story and Kathleen Baldwin has a new fan!
In addition to writing books, Kathleen loves adventure in real life. She ta ...more
