Genre: Regency Romance
Book Description: When wills clash and hearts collide, who will reign victorious?
Termed an Incomparable during her first London season, Lady Harriett Cavendish is beautiful, spirited, and confident, capturing the attention of a great many suitors. Unfortunately, they all failed to capture her attention, and she concluded the season as unattached as she’d begun it.
Only weeks prior to her second season, Harriett encounters Lieutenant Christopher Jamison while visiting Tanglewood Manor. Recently returned from war, the lieutenant is everything that Harriett's previous suitors were not. He’s arrogant, ungentlemanly, irritating, and challenges her at every opportunity. When he goes too far, Harriett decides that it’s time to turn the tables on him. But as she sets out to put the lieutenant in his place once and for all, she discovers there is more to him than meets the eye, and when it comes to matters of the heart, she has no control whatsoever.
My thoughts: It's not often that a book begins with the female MC having mud splashed all over her when a man on a horse doesn't notice her on the side of the road. It was really rude. Then to find him at Tanglewood, the same place she is staying, it becomes intolerable. Christopher Jamison is annoying, rude, insensitive, etc. Of course, it is of no notice that he is handsome and has a brilliant laugh.
This is a fun book to pick up and set aside your worries and cares. It is full of humor, embarassment, and challenging wits. I love it when a book contains banter and a couple who are evenly matched. Of course, it begins as a challenge. Harriett wants to prove that she is better at something than Christopher, he seems to beat her at everything. She is stubborn and refuses to give up or in. It leads to great moments, like tree climbing.
The book has a great ending, proving that Christopher is really a gentlemanly catch. The book contains some mild kissing.
