From the BOB blurb, the story had promise. But the story doesn't match the BOB blurb. The writing is over-the-top melodramatic with a hyper emotional heroine.

I enjoyed Alex's story as he is a careless rake who is bitter about being the second son and therefore less worthy in the eyes of the ton. After a wager with his friend he attempts to get a kiss from the beautiful Lady Blythe, but find himself in a battle of wits with her older sister Emmeline. Before he knows it, it's Emmeline he wants to kiss and not her sister. But she's not too happy to find out about the wager. I loved both the characters I read this book first, long ago, and out of order. I loved both the characters in this book, the plot, the romance - all of it comes together very nicely for a very enjoyable book!
Sir Alexander Thornton is sorry the minute he makes a wager with his best friend as to who will kiss a maiden first. Aug 13, Karyn Gerrard rated it really liked it.
Picked this up for 2. Entertaining and moved at a fast clip, and Alex Thornton is a hot hero with many intriguing layers. Hey, I even liked the heroine for once! A very good read. Emmeline is quite taken with Alex from the first time she sees him and vice versa. He is there to steal a kiss from her younger sister, but Emmeline feels like forever to the rogue. Winning her isn't easy, but in the end they both win. Jun 10, Ebony Morton rated it really liked it.
It was a great read. I have not read the first book but was easily able to follow the plot, so it's not a problem if you read the series out of order. I read His Scandal six years ago and didn't remember the book but thought I had liked it, so thought to reread it. I was at first somewhat disappointed: The main characters are a pleasure and the book quickly improves though, so if you start off thinking the same thing, don't be discouraged - keep reading and you won't be disappointed! Despite the often vapid and silly younger sister, most of the secondary characters are interesting and well-written and the chemistry between Emmy and Alex is sizzling.
And of course, who doesn't enjoy a historical romance where the hero is a scandalous rake who can't help but fall under the spell of an older-sister heroine who is too often ignored Lady Emmeline Prescott has always been in her younger sister, Blythe's, shadow - though over time this has become as much by outside influence as by choice. Regarding her younger sister almost as a daughter they are 7 years apart , Emmy has practically raised her and sees it as her duty to look after Blythe and help her find a suitable husband who will love and care for her.
Around seven years ago she once fancied herself in love with a young man, but he was a tutor and her father forbade the match, not thinking him to be of a suitable station. Since then, Emmy has given up on ever finding her own HEA and has convinced herself that she will be content with being a beloved elder sister and the aunt to Blythe's children.
