Christy English did a wonderful job on this book. This was such a fun book to read as yet another of the irresistibly charming Waters clan found true love. This author has a lovely writing style that had this reader smiling at the fairy tale romance and grinning like a fool at the reckless antics of the main characters.
All of Prudence's hopes and dreams sank to the bottom of the ocean along with her brother's ship, title and fortune. Now left tto fend for herself she planned to pass herself off as a widow so she could obtain employment as a governess/companion. Then fate put her in the path of Robert Waters when she chances upon one of his hellion sister, Mary Elizabeth's escapades. Robert hired Prudence to help smooth the way for his sister to get back into societies good graces, but of course that was only a guise, since he was determined to seduce the "widow". It wasn't very long before Prudence's charade was revealed but by then they were head over heels in love. A lot happened in this book. It had some suspense involving Prudence's missing brother that livened up the story quite a bit, Mary Elizabeth catches the roving eye of a Duke, and the eldest Waters sibling arrives in London. The romance part was fairly steamy and the pace of the story was flawless.
All in all this book was an exciting read. The story snagged my interest from the first page and then there was so much that happened it seemed like it flew by way too soon. Of course, Mary Elizabeth was a pleasure and I can't wait to see the wild chase she is bound to give to her Duke. Then again, now that I've met Ian, I can't help but wonder about him. Christy English has certainly created charming characters for this series and I want to read each one of their stories.
I am happy to recommend this book, How to Wed A Warrior, to everyone.
He's the scourge of the Season...
Reasons to quit London:
1. It's not the Highlands.
2. It will never be the Highlands.
3. It's full of the bloody English.
When his wild spitfire of a sister makes a scene by drawing a claymore in Hyde Park, Highlander Robert Waters knows something must be done. To forestall the inevitable scandal, he hires widowed Prudence Whittaker to teach his sister how to be a lady-never expecting to find unbridled passion beneath the clever Englishwoman's prim exterior.
Mrs. Whittaker is a fraud. Born Lady Prudence Farthington, daughter of the ruined earl of Lynwood, she's never even been married. In order to make her way in the world, she has to rely on her wits and a web of lies...lies a sexy Highlander is all too close to unraveling.
He swears he will possess her; she vows he will do nothing of the sort. Yet as passions heat, Prudence comes to realize the illicit pleasure that can be had in going toe-to-toe with a Scot.
