Description from Amazon.com:
She has no desire for love . . .
As she arrives in Mayfair, Louisa Tempest is horrified when her incorrigible cat bolts from the carriage and dashes into a neighbor’s house, where she comes face-to-face with the reclusive Viscount Wakefield. But even more dismaying than his foul temper is the disarray in which she finds his home. Convinced his demeanor would improve if his household were in order, Louisa resolves to put everything to rights.
. . . until she meets the viscount who lives down the lane
Much to his chagrin, Wakefield finds it impossible to keep the meddling Louisa out of his home, invading his daily life with her “improvements,” and his nights with the tempting desires she sparks inside him. Wounded in the war, he’s scorned society ever since his return . . . until Louisa opens the door to his heart and convinces him to give love a second chance.
This is a book chock-a-block full of wit, humor and splendid writing. We are treated to Louisa’s indomitable spirit for she is a young woman who knows her own mind and certainly thinks she knows what ought to be done when she sees an aristocratic mess. Pierson, Viscount Wakefield was perfectly content to wallow in his depression and drink until Louisa invaded his home with her good intentions. Louisa is the whirlwind that cannot be stopped no matter how much bluster and foot stomping is done by the Viscount.
This is the fourth book in the RHYMES WITH LOVE series. It is a standalone novel so feel free to pick it up and not be lost. There are kisses and more so keep your fan at the ready for things can get steamy hot. Winner of the Romantic Times 2014 Love and Laughter award.
