Her Timing Couldn't Be Worse...
Miss Eugenia Talbot's presentation to the queen is spoiled by a serious faux pas—the despicable William Grant made her laugh, right in front of Her Majesty. Now Eugenia is ruined and had better marry—someone, anyone—at once...

And His Couldn't Be Better...

Roguish William Grant has never taken anything seriously in his life. Until he meets Eugenia Talbot, who makes him feel and do thing he never thought he would.

Now Eugenia's great sense of humor and kindheartedness may be her undoing, unless William can help her find a husband. To his surprise, that's the last thing he wants to do

My Review:

I saved this one for last because I love Amanda Forester's books and that's what I do. I save the ones I am looking forward to most for last. And the cover is epically pretty.

I liked Genie. I did. I didn't quite get as much of the “ruined and must marry” from her. She never really came across as very desperate. But the lighthearted nature of the scandal kind of reflected the lighthearted nature of the book. I have been inundated with scampy, naughty heroes lately and William is one of them. Perhaps not my favorite out of the lot of them but passable and I did like that he wasn't vapid at all—like some of the scamps I've come across in my romance reading.

I liked this book a lot. It's somewhat lighter than what I have been reading lately. It's missing the angst and melodrama. And I found that to be quite refreshing. A Wedding in Springtime had a light and airy feel to it. This was a nice, lighthearted regency with a bit of a Georgette Heyer feel to it. The humor was excellent. I found myself chuckling often especially in that first chapter. I really did like this one. It's not on my favorites list but it really was an enjoyable read with fun characters and witty humor.
