Daring Miss Danvers Review

Daring Miss Danvers
Wallflower Weddings #1
Vivienne Lorret
4 Stars!

It's all fun and games . . . until someone falls in love.

Oliver Goswick, Viscount Rathburn, needs money—and soon. With time ticking away and his inheritance held hostage until he's properly wed, Rathburn's slim options point to a single solution: a faux engagement. In need of the perfect bride, he knows of only one candidate: his best friend's wallflower sister. The plan seems flawless, except for one problem . . . He can't help falling in love with her.

Poised, polished Emma Danvers knows nothing good can come of Rathburn's scheme. Spending the next two months engaged in a mock courtship is not what she'd imagined for her final season. Yet, charmed by his roguish ways and the inexplicable hammering he causes in her heart, she accepts his challenge.

For Emma, keeping the secret seemed easy when it was just a game . . . But as Rathburn begins to see past her reserved exterior to the passionate woman within, the risk of losing her heart becomes all too real.

My Thoughts….

This book was a sweet, lovely read that was a great change of pace for me. For some reason I stopped reading historical romances but reading this book made me wonder why I ever put them down. This book was a quick read that was absolutely wonderful.

Emma was a great character. She was strong is an understated way. When pushed her strong willed came out. She saved it to stand up for the people she loves. She was a bit naive at some points. She wanted to fit in so her artsy parents didn’t fit in with her plan. She finally let that go and realized it didn’t matter which made me like her even more.

Oliver was just amazing. You could tell he loved her even before he started to even wonder about his actions. He was very determined. I felt sorry for anyone who got in his way. Even the way he always teased Emma was so adorable. He was adorable.

Their romance was one of the greats. They had some trouble with their communication but once they realized they had feelings they never denied them. They only wanted what was best for the other and they worked well together. They were a real team and an even better couple. The chemistry between them was hot and nearly combustible. It was there from the beginning.

The plot was fast paced but in a way that the author didn’t leave anything out. She also didn’t drag anything out that wasn’t necessary. It made reading the book fun and not frustrating like a lot of book that I have read are.

This was a sweet and adorable book, a great story for anyone who loves historical romances. Even people who like contemporary romances will enjoy this book.
