Description

The Bourne Matrimonial Agency has one rule: Never fall in love with the client. However, they never said anything about kissing a rake…

Briar Bourne’s matchmaking career could be summed up in two words—comic disaster. Unless she can learn about the irresistible forces that draw men and women together, her professional future looks rather bleak. But Briar has an intriguing plan—enlisting London’s most irredeemable rake to teach her everything he knows about attraction. Given his notorious reputation, it’s no surprise that Nicholas Blacklowe, the Earl of Edgemont, requests one thing in exchange for his tutelage. For every lesson, he wants a kiss in return. And what harm could there be in a simple kiss? After all, Briar would never fall for a scoundrel…

Nicholas has no romantic notions about love, and no intention of changing his ways. He’s only helping Briar so that she can find the perfect bride for his jilted cousin. Yet Briar is so clever, so curious, so candid—so blasted tempting—that soon, Nicholas can’t stop wondering what it might be like if he was irresistible to her.

Ten lessons. Ten kisses. And a million ways to fall hopelessly, scandalously in love.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 19, 2018 – In this second Misadventures in Matchmaking Regency (after How to Forget a Duke), youngest sister Briar Bourne's attempt to pair up the elite results in a folly that threatens the family matchmaking business. Luckily, Nicholas Prescott, the Earl of Edgemont, is so desperate to secure matches for his cousins one of whom is Briar's best friend that he's willing to overlook Briar's little snafu. When Briar accepts a bet to find a match for the roguish Nicholas, she doesn't realize she may be the best candidate. Briar's vivid imagination tempts Nicholas as much as her beautiful face, and the more they spar, the more their attraction increases. Briar's family is very protective, and they feel Nicholas's reputation makes him unsuitable for Briar, but business is business, so the two end up spending a lot of time together. Nicholas hopes a successful match for his heartbroken cousin will ease his guilt over a secret Nicholas has been keeping, but as he persists in distracting Briar, readers know who will get matched up first. Lorret has created a delicious world filled with complex, charming characters. A touch of passion and some comic relief make this a well-blended novel that includes an alluring setup for the next in the series.

Delightful!!!

If you love wonderfully written Regency romance, you are in for a treat! I absolutely adored this delightful story and could not help myself from laughing at times as I turned the pages! Briar Bourne is the youngest of three sisters, who have coddled and protected her after their father left them and their mother grieved herself to death. Going to live with their doting uncle, who has opened up a matchmaking agency, Briar wants to prove that she can work and be successful just like her siblings.
Briar was such a fun character! She is twenty but being so protected, very naive. But in spite of that, she is a smart, a little outspoken and has a luminous personality. She is determined to show her mettle and help find a match for her best friends Temperance and her brother Daniel.
Nicholas, the Earl of Edgemont, is their cousin and wants to help Daniel, who has been very depressed due to a broken engagement. Known as a rake, he is very caring and will do anything for his family. As Briar and Nicholas meet, he knows she is off limits to him but cannot help be drawn to her. A bargain is struck between the two for him to teach her how to read body language and the intricacies that go on between men and women. But the cost will be a kiss for every lesson he teaches her. He refuses to fall in love though.
Vivienne Lorret has created a tale with amazing in depth characters, who come to life when added to her wonderful storytelling! This will be a book added to my read again shelf! Cannot wait for the next story in this series!! Well done! I read this through Edelweiss
