REVIEW: How to Ruin Your Reputation in Ten Days by Harmony Williams

Congratulations Harmony Williams on your new release! I was fortunate to get an ARC of the book and it was a great read.

What it's about:
In 1814 London, England, a lady is defined as a demure, delicate flower. Miss Francine Annesley is not that lady. If men were like plants, she would have a garden of admirers to choose from instead of the thorn in her side since childhood, Julian Beckwith. But she would make an even worse nun than she does a lady, which will be her fate if she can't dig up a husband before the Season ends. However, Julian is not an option.

With only ten short days left in the Season, Francine doesn't have time to waste on petty squabbles or knee-weakening kisses, even if Julian's offer to fulfill her every wish rouses her curiosity. It seems men are more complicated than plants. Too bad love bloomed at the most inconvenient of times...

My thoughts:

This is the second in Harmony Williams’ Ladies of Passion series. I didn’t read the first in the series, but had no trouble following the storyline. Honestly, I haven’t read a historical romance in a long time but I enjoyed the book. However, it is in first person, which is unusual for the genre. In this story we follow Francine Annesley who’s on the marriage market and fairly desperate for a husband, having been on the market for several seasons. Enter our hero, Julian Beckwith, an old friend she hasn’t seen in ages. He’s not titled, which is a problem for Francine’s mother but you can tell these two are meant for each other from the start. We are given an enjoyable friends to lovers romance.  This my first Harmony Williams read but it won’t be the last. She’s got a wonderful voice and true talent for emotion. This is a sweet, funny and utterly adorable read from start to finish.
