It's All Things Bookish....
Because Life is short and there is so much to read, read fast!
Rakish playboy, Fletcher Banks, Earl of Wakefield has wanted Agnes Watkins since the first time he saw her. But her older brother is his direct supervisor and makes it very clear that Agnes is off limits. Fletcher does his best to forget her and instead focuses on his spying assignments that have him seducing women for needed information.
But when Agnes corners him at a ball and proclaims she’s going to reform his scoundrel ways, Fletcher knows he can ignore her no longer. Initially he considers this an opportunity to rid himself of his fascination with her. But the more time he spends with her, the more he realizes that what he feels for her isn’t a passing infatuation, but real love. He uses her goal as an excuse to pursue her full throttle despite warning glances from her brother. But can he convince her that he’s mended his scandalous ways?
This is an adorable story. I loved both Fletcher and Agnes. Their interactions with each other are so sweet and interesting. I really enjoyed reading this historical fiction and would recommend it to all romance lovers.
Agnes has lived in her mother's shadow all her life. Finally, she gives up on love and romance. She can afford to stay single forever. Her brother supports her decision and thus she is safely off the marriage market. Now she can do what she enjoys to do. That's how she becomes part of a Ladies' group helping people of London. However, things are not as simple as they seem and her life might be in danger. She also finds it very difficult to ignore Lord Fletcher's. She has no idea why but for some reason she enjoys his company and maybe even feel lust towards him.
Fletcher likes Agnes but she is off-limits. There is no way he will jeopardize his carrier and her reputation just because he can't keep his hands to himself. That's also why he avoids her. But now that's not an option. He has to protect her and that means staying close to her. Will he be able to protect her without compromising her or maybe he will end up convincing her to marry him? But is that even a possibility for the two of them?
It's a well-written story. I find it to be a light-hearted romance which I think everyone can enjoy reading. I definitely did!
