Termed an Incomparable during her first London season, Lady Harriett Cavendish is beautiful, spirited, and confident, capturing the attention of a great many suitors. Unfortunately, they all failed to capture her attention, and she concluded the season as unattached as she’d begun it.
Only weeks prior to her second season, Harriett encounters Lieutenant Christopher Jamison while visiting Tanglewood Manor. Recently returned from war, the lieutenant is everything that Harriett’s previous suitors were not. He’s arrogant, ungentlemanly, irritating, and challenges her at every opportunity. When he goes too far, Harriett decides that it’s time to turn the tables on him. But as she sets out to put the lieutenant in his place once and for all, she discovers there is more to him than meets the eye, and when it comes to matters of the heart, she has no control whatsoever.
I have truly enjoyed the Tanglewood series! The third book in this series was no exception. Rachael Anderson writes such fun and witty heroines and her characters have so much life and personality. The chemistry and witty banter between Harriet and Chris made this story an instant favorite. I loved how he started calling her Harry just to irritate her, and then it became a kind of nickname between them. The constant rivalry and teasing between Harriet and Chris kept the book lively and and I couldn’t put it down. One of the things I enjoy most about these stories is that Rachael Anderson knows how to write characters with the perfect balance of humor and sensitivity. I am a big fan of Regency stories and I think this series and this book are among my favorites.
