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.
This is the second book in the Misadventures in Matchmaking series and it is just as good as the first!!!! I love the imagination, tenacity, and courage of Briar and seeing how all three traits played into this story. I adore this family and seeing the success of their matchmaking agency (even if the sisters seem to be the primary ones who find their perfect matches) in a time where such things were taboo warms my heart.
This is one of few books where I can honestly say many times I genuinely laughed out loud at the banter between the naive yet witty leading lady and the smug, self-assured leading gentleman. Their relationship had me giggling and sighing all at the same time and that isn’t normally something that happens for me in H.R. books. I am eager to read the next installment of the Misadventures in Matchmaking and see if the oldest sister finds her perfect match.
