Tempting Fate (2009) Alissa Johnson

Set in England in 1813

Whittaker Cole, Earl of Thurston, and Miss Mirabelle Browning have fought and argued with each other since they were young. Whit’s mother, however, has had enough and orders him to bury the hatchet and behave themselves, for it’s possible his attitude towards Mirabelle has kept her from finding a match. As Whit has tried his best to be honorable and respectable, the thought that he might have damaged Mirabelle is enough to make him regret their years of fighting.

The “secret” from the first book is known the the reader now, but the young people don’t know what’s happening, and that’s fine.

William Fletcher appeared from the library looking harassed, followed by Lady Thurston who looked to be doing the harassing.

Mira is a very interesting character, and someone who is doing the best she can with what she has. Seeing how things are for her at her Uncle’s house is both horrifying and mortifying, but also what could easily happen to a woman who had no control over her life.

It was another fun and enjoyable story.
Rating: 8/10
