too cleverTwo brilliant scholars engaged in a battle of wits…and seduced by the lure of passion. Mr. James Alcott has carved out his place in the world with an esteemed position at Harrow School. But when the school changes direction, he’s set adrift. He can redeem himself by founding a scholarship if he wins the annual Duke’s Trust award for seed money. A seemingly simple task. Until a mysterious competitor enters the race. Lady Tessa Harmsworth has fabricated the reclusive Mr. Pettibone as the champion of her women’s education fund. It’s the only way a woman can enter the Duke’s competition, which Tessa intends to win. Until her annoyingly clever opponent sets out to uncover her ruse. As Tessa and James match wits, their spirited rivalry turns into a passionate affair. With the coveted prize hanging in the balance, they must choose between their lifelong dreams and their reckless hearts.

My Thoughts:

Tessa wishes to educate women who could otherwise not afford to pay for such an education.
James wants the same funds to educate young men with the same problem.
Both will go to any means to be awarded these funds.
This introductory novella to this series is an enjoyable read. It is however a novella and leaves you wanting much more.
This sweet/clean read is well written.
It was my introduction to this author getting 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization.
I have bought and read all three books currently available in this series and look forward to reading more from this author.

one kiss from ruinOnce upon a time, they were in love. Then everything went wrong.

A gentleman marked by a scandal

Mr. Daniel Hallsworth lost his title and was driven out of England by claims of his illegitimacy. Now he’s returned to reclaim his title and his family’s reputation, which requires marrying a virtuous lady. He has his sights set on the woman he once loved. If only the lady would graciously accept his proposal.

A lady haunted by a secret

Lady Emme Radcliffe made a mistake that could destroy her family. To hide it, she’s withdrawn from society and dedicated herself to spinsterhood. Now the man she’s loved for ages has returned with an offer of marriage, but accepting it means risking her secret. If only the gentleman would kindly stop being such a temptation.

A love that could ruin them both

With their own match an impossibility, Daniel needs Emme’s assistance to find a suitable wife, and she needs his help to thwart her father’s matchmaking. But each moment together brings them to the brink of passion, and every stolen kiss brings them one step closer to ruin.

My Thoughts:

This is the second book of this series and the first full length one.
I recommend reading them in order of publication although I didn’t.
I found some minor flaws in the editing but they didn’t distract from the overall read.
I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development.
I look forward to reading the entire series.

As a reminder, Two Scandals Are Better Than One is also available!

In this romance tinged with mystery and suspense,

old friends Luci and Edward embark on a foray into

London’s seedy underworld that will unmask their hidden desires.

A journey into the belly of the beast

As Luci and Edward delve deeper into the criminal underworld, their lives turn upside down. Danger lurks around every corner. Threats assail them from all sides, and the only safe harbor in the city is in each other’s arms. Until the sparks between them threaten to ignite their long-denied passion.

My Thoughts:

Two Scandals Are Better Than One is the latest book in the Harris’s Finest Five series.
Book #3 is in this reader’s opinion the best so far.
They are all three clean and well written books. I would recommend reading them in order but each book can stand on it’s own. I actually read this book first and went back and read books #1 & 2. I am looking forward to book #4.
This book gets 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization.
We previously met our hero and heroine in the first two books and got to delve deeper into their characters and story here.
