Description from

What a woman wants… The only person who ever understood what Julia Radley wanted most in life was the man who ruined her reputation and secured her victory in a bold swimming race. She does not hold Valentine Merton accountable for the harsh criticisms made against her character until he suggests the only way to smooth over the scandal of his defeat is to wed as soon as possible. … the gentleman must dare. After picking himself up after proposing, Valentine Merton is even more determined to tame the wild girl next door. The future he wants within the clockmaker’s guild depends on their speedy marriage. A few sweet words or, as a last resort, another brazen dare is sure to persuade her to take a chance on him… and his family. A sizzling regency historical romance. ~ * ~ Miss Radley’s Third Dare is the third novella in the Miss Mayhem Series. Other titles are: Book 1: Miss Watson’s First Scandal Book 2: Miss George’s Second Chance Book 3: Miss Radley’s Third Dare Book 4: Miss Merton’s Last Hope


This is a well written novella but I have not read the first two books in this series and I was a bit lost with the side characters. I know that if I had read Miss Watson’s and Miss George’s story I would not have been as confused and I would have enjoyed Julia and Valentine’s story even more. Julia is a tomboy and is out to prove that she can do whatever a man can do. Valentine rather likes her feisty behavior even though society is considering her scandalous. But since Valentine contributed to one of her scandalous behaviors he is also in trouble. Ms. Boyd brings these two characters to life with heated encounters and sizzling chemistry.
