This is the second time taking this story The first time I read it too fast and skipped some parts because I wanted to know what happened lol So I think that time doesn t count Anyway I needed to read all from the beginning and I thoroughly njoyed it The first story of The heir and a spare series I read was actually Lizzie s recalcitrant arl that s the third in the series After that I read Sarah and Oliver s story that s the first one I think I read them last year but I m not sure if I review them Anyway I found all stories very good but I specially liked this one because of the unlikeliness of both main characters being inexperienced It gives their ncounters a novelty and a passion different to other stories The story is well written very sexy but has a background of deep love hope and loyalty The story has some angst but not much Archie behaves in a silly way 50% of the book and breaks Charlotte s heart in a vane intent to protect her from his lost reputation but they fix things in the nd very satisfactorily I will The Fiend Next Door expand my review at a later date I think thend was a bit too fast though it has an pilogue but there is not much story about her family s reaction or the things they had to ndure due to his lost reputation due to his brother s unfortunate demise I like how they learn to communicate and fix problems together both of them learning to build a solid marriage in spite of the bad பொன்னியின் செல்வன் - புது வெள்ளம் examples of their families Over all very good story very passionate and romantic and fast to read I recommend it This was a wonderful story about an adult Lord Archibald Turner a male at twenty seven years of age was still a virgin and the object of his affection Lady Charlotte Dunford who was also a virgin Lady Charlotte is twenty two and was considered nearly on the shelf Charlotte was fiercely independent witty way too argumentative and loved life with a passion This is why Archie had fallen in love with Charlotte Since she was sixteen he knew he would love no other Charlotte felt the same way but did not know if Archie would return her affectionThen onevening Charlotte had proclaimed to her friends that she would only marry for love He must be a gentleman handsome financially stable a little older than her and he must be a virgin Everyone laughed when one of Archie s friends Rupert told Charlotte she need look no further than Archie Archie was stricken speechless Charlotte now understood that she had found the right one She wondered and worried if he could return her love When she realized that he did but at the same time was pushing her away she became confused hurt and angry Archie was shouldering a terrible burden a secret that if known would tarnish his and his families name for all time He would be given the direct cut from polite society and he did not want to drag Charlotte into his affairs Charlotte did not know this But sometimes Archie s resolve failed him and Charlotte could see how he really felt about her Then Archie s feared nightmare came to pass He became reclusive rejecting his closest friends from visiting him Charlotte would not be turned away by Archie and visited him without a chaperone and at his bachelor home What would happen when they were finally alone Would Archie finally let Charlotte break down all his walls How would two innocents know what to do with The Return of the Carter Boys: The Carter Boys 2 each other if they chose to be intimate Would Charlotte be willing to live a life with Archie knowing of his disgrace Would she be able to bear the scrutiny of the ton These and other uestions are answered when you read this delightful story of true love I absolutely loved reading this It grabbed my attention and held it throughout the book There was sadness suspense comradery loyal friends happiness fun love and passion allxpressed in this book I highly recommend it I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review What a great read This one was such a page turner that I read it all in one day and A Meditation on Murder even though I was pretty sure there was going to be a HEA it was still a roller coaster ofmotion and uncertaintyThe plot was somewhat different from the average and felt fresh and interesting I wa.

S completely sold on the story line and all of the characters Even supporting characters were well developed and I was almost as invested in what was happening with their stories as I was with the main characters Charlotte and Archie Both main characters were complex and realistic and I loved that Charlotte was portrayed as a strong woman with her own opinionsThe writing style was relatively simple and crisp with xcellent dialogue and really good descriptions There s no filler in the book very chapter adds to the plot and the story and kept me completely ntertainedWhile this is part of a series it can be read as a standalone It does feature characters who appear in the other books Recommended for all romance fans and a must read for any who like historical romance I received a copy of this book from Booksprout and have chosen to leave a review Customer Review50 out of 5 starsCharlotte Seduces her manBy sewsum TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 30 May 2018Format Kindle EditionArchibald is the second son of the Maruess of Hunting and for tens years he has been waiting for the death of his AI Weiwei: Beijing Photographs, 1993-2003 elder brother and the scandal it will bring with it So terrible will be the scandal that there is no way he will consider marriage to Charlotte the only woman he hasver loved Tired of waiting for Archibald to see her as than his best friend s sister Charlotte takes matters into her own hands and sets out to seduce him instead This is an The Bubble Economy: Is Sustainable Growth Possible? engaging love story of two members of the ton her naughty seduction of Archibald destroys WARNING There is depiction of and talk surrounding miscarriage in this story It is not overly graphic or descriptive but it is there I will start with what I liked about this story The idea itself the bare bones of the plot The consent before and checking in during sex however there is one time that it should have happened but didn t view spoiler Not to be too graphic but Archie finishes in Charlotte without getting the okay to do that hide spoiler I loved the first part of the book when Charlotte has reallymbarassing conversations with her friends I just can see their shocked faces What can I say Charlotte isbold and beautifulThe latter part of the book I liked a bit less in which she practises what her friend told her about sex Again and againWhere the first part of the book is sweet and funny the latter is sexy and ntertaining in a totally different wayI love the friendships And Charlotte is such a strong and beautiful characterI received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review Wellthat was steamyI m not sure how historically accurate Lady Charlotte s Maruess is but I can definitely vouch that it was very sexy It s not a kinky historical romance steamy and concentrating on love and a mutual devotion I think that was the appeal of Lady Charlotte s Maruesswhich unfortunately made it seem a little less historically accurate In some ways it was a bit of a reversal in roles too We have a hero that followed his father s rules to the T and led him to live his life practically a saint On the flip side we have a Lady who is the daughter of a Duke confident a little brash and determined to not settle for less than what she desires Will his good behaviour now help him in the future Or will all the hard work and sacrifice be for naught Will her confidence and brash behaviour in the past mess with her future Or will her determination to find the perfect husband leave her a lonely woman Poor Archiehis family SUCKS His parents are unloving and have never acted in a way to show they care about him or his older brother His older brother being the heir is given a little freedom and attention This in the nd has not really done Archie s brother any good because his reckless life of freedom has shortened it dramatically Archie has gone from being the spare to waiting and knowing he will become the heir He is NOT happy about it He never wanted the responsibility or the title and now the family name will be in tatters as well The chances of him finding an advantageous marriage prospect are slim and lovealmost impossible Unfortunately he knows where his heart is and she is so far out of his.
