It's all fun and games . . . until someone falls in love.

Oliver Goswick, Viscount Rathburn, needs money—and soon. With time ticking away and his inheritance held hostage until he's properly wed, Rathburn's slim options point to a single solution: a faux engagement. In need of the perfect bride, he knows of only one candidate: his best friend's wallflower sister. The plan seems flawless, except for one problem . . . He can't help falling in love with her.

Poised, polished Emma Danvers knows nothing good can come of Rathburn's scheme. Spending the next two months engaged in a mock courtship is not what she'd imagined for her final season. Yet, charmed by his roguish ways and the inexplicable hammering he causes in her heart, she accepts his challenge.

For Emma, keeping the secret seemed easy when it was just a game . . . But as Rathburn begins to see past her reserved exterior to the passionate woman within, the risk of losing her heart becomes all too real.

My Review:

Intro Babble: It's been pretty apparent to me lately that my reading slump is quite ongoing in a sporadic kind of way. I will read and review absolutely nothing for a week and then binge on books and reviews for a week and then back to slumping. Does anyone have any tips for busting out of a slump like this?

This is one I picked up during the non-slumping times and I absolutely loved it. It was a nice jolt of sweet historical romance before delving into another angsty historical romance.


Heroine: Emma- There was nothing to dislike about Emma. At all. It was so easy to like her and to make a connection to her. I also found her to be quite the realistic heroine. She was strong but not in a bombastic way and she had her faults.

Hero: Oliver-He was an alpha in a not obvious way. That's not exactly the best way to describe him. But he was an alpha in the way that Mr. Darcy was an alpha. He just had a way about him and his presence just jumped off the page. He also had his moments of complete and utter sweetie pie.

Chemistry: There is just something about these two together that just goes beyond anything I thought they would be. They were so sweet together. Sweet almost in the way that they can even maintain the sweet through any minor conflicts they may have. And they had a few in the book. They did not get their merit badge in communication.

Chemistry Rating:

Ending Babble: Daring Miss Danvers was excellent from start to finish. It's perfect for when you want a historical romance without the angst but with a really compelling main couple. Vivienne Lorret is a new to me author but she is definitely one I will be revisiting.
