5 starsYay My first Alissa Johnson and I loved it, very cute, happy read, just what I needed Sometimes I want a real meaty story other times something light and fluffy with humor and love which is exactly what An Unexpected Gentleman delivered The hero was to die for Connor Brice and the heroine, Adelaide Ward, was also good She was somewhat older than the usual maybe 26 or 27 and the oldest in her family Her brother, Wolfgang, wound up in prison for his debts and now she must marry well in order to save her family, which also consists of her sister, Isobel, and her nephew George, who is adorable and I love babies children in my stories She is intending to marry a man, who she doesn t love, Sir Robert and who she really does not know She unexpectedly meets and becomes at Adelaide Ward Has But One Goal To Obtain An Offer Of Marriage From The Respectable, If Less Than Appealing, Baron Sir Robert Maxwell Before Her Family Is Ruined But It S The Devilishly Handsome Connor Brice Who Captures Her Imagination And A Kiss In Broad Daylight In Front Of A Dozen Members Of The Ton Now Adelaide Must Decide If The Charming Scoundrel Who Stole Away Her Reputation Might Still Be Trusted With Her HeartConnor Brice Seeks A Long Overdue Revenge On The Baron And What Better Way To Launch His Campaign Than To Steal The Lovely Miss Ward For His Own A Quick Compromising And An Even Quicker Wedding Ought To Do But If Connor Wants To Establish Any Sort Of Domestic Tranquility, He Ll Have To Regain Adelaide S Trust And Choose What Means To Him His Thirst For Vengeance Or His Need For Adelaide So what do you read when you are feeling jaded or out of sorts May I recommend this book I think for the sake of those who need an intense plot driven story, this may not suit your needs, but if you want a humorous story that is well written, I would say this one will I was generally struck by how honest and clear this author s style is At the same time, she doesn t sermonize or hit you on the head with her point The characters are not your typical fair The heroine is 28, solely responsible for her family and the story begins with her anticipating a proposal that will secure her a 5000 a year income Mercenary Well no actually, simply pragmatic I like that she didn t put herself through contortions of guilt She is a woman of honest integrity The hero is a character which we develop some considerable empathy for in short order, despite some fairly unprincipled behaviour like d Alissa Johnson is one of my favorite historical romance writers and did not disappoint me with this treat I found it to be an enchanting tale with lots of witty banter throughout Not a lot of action but this is a romance and not a suspense thriller action adventure novel so Anyway, light and fun and entertaining in my most humble opinion.
