I’M HALF-MAD FOR YOU
I enjoyed this story of two people, Blake and Mina, they had been acquainted many years before but really don’t know each other. The death of the Earl of Hawkeswood places Blake as the new Earl, but the will has a codicil that for him to take the title he must marry before the end of the year. On top of that, not someone of his choice, but Wilhelmina aka Mina Corbet, a distant cousin by marriage. The story has a great cast of characters, a nice mix of angst, witty dialog and

A Good Read !!!!

I can' think of anything I disliked. I was initially confused about the coolness between Mina and her Father; but, got over that due to the fact that she lost her Mother when she was very young...She met Blake when she was quite young, but she knew her own heart and abided by that love. I liked the story line and enjoyed the developement oh the ASPCA.

Uncaged Book Reviews:

It’s a nice story, the characters are likeable, there were spots I thought there was more to flush out with the story, and I thought it could have used a bit more, but that could just be me being selfish and wanting to read more. All in all, a nice easy read.

Good

It was a good read, but Mina was a bit annoying. She should have stand up more for herself. But she got, what she wanted. Him.
