As if from a dream, Lady Gabrielle walked from the mist and into Viscount Brentwood’s arms. Within moments, he’s embroiled in more scandal than he ever thought possible. Beautiful, clever, and courageous, Lady Gabrielle needs Brent’s help to get out of a seriously bad situation. But the more she gets to know him, the worse she feels about ruining his life…

My thoughts:
The information I found stated that this was book 4, when I actually thought it was the start to a new series. The previous books are about 3 cousins finding love while this one is set at the same time, but all new characters.  But they are connected and this via the man who fathered Brent’s brothers and that man was also in the previous books as a side character. But you do not need to have read those previous ones at all since this for me feels like a new start.
But enough with that now. In this book Viscount Brentwood is walking his mother’s dog Prissy when a woman comes up to him and kisses him. And you all know what that means, scandal! And a broken engagement for her, but she did not count on him doing the honourable thing. So she finds herself engaged again and she will try anything to get out of it.
I do like Amelia Grey’s books because there is just something fun over them. And here that is all the things Gabrielle does when she tries to get out of this new engagement. There will be a few scandals before she is done. Her old fiancé, oh do not feel sorry for him, I personally thought he was an ass. Gabrielle also had more than one reason to break up with him. She is a very brave woman to cause scandal like that so yes of of course I liked her. As for her new man, Brent, he never knew what was coming but he did fall for her. Even if he fell in lust first. He kept up with her crazy schemes and who would not love a man who searches day and night for his lost dog.

And the side characters are great as always. Gabrielle has an aunt who says what she wants to say and again we meet Lord Snellingly. This poor lord from previous books who writes the worst poetry in the world.

Conclusion:

I enjoyed this book and did not want to put it down before I knew what would happen. Silly I know, since obviously they would get a HEA. But it was just so witty and charming.

Rating:
Amusing and utterly adorable.

    Scandalous indeed! How funny that she wanted to get out of one engagement and ended up in another. Such were the times. I like stories that are connected to other books, but can stand alone. I'm trying to be more relaxed on reading series books in order. 🙂

    It's not silly at all. Just because you figure out the ending does not deter from the fun journey of reading especially when you like the characters so much.

  3. Jenny says:

    Why did she walk up and kiss him? Just to get out of the other engagement? Seems to have backfired on her a bit:) This sounds like a cute story, I'm on a historical romance kick lately!

  4. Audra says:

    Sometimes you need to things will end well to enjoy them — somedays, I'm in the mood for a HEA novel and this sounds like one that might be perfect for when I have that craving!

  5. Misha says:

    What a cute premise! From time to time, I love reading purely entertaining books like this one. I think I would like Gabrielle too.

  6. paperbackdaydreamer.com says:

    This one does sound good! I'm so happy you enjoyed it so much you didn't want to put it down. I always love the books that I come across that even though I know the couple is going to get a HEA I still can't put the book down and it's so well written that I actually think they aren't goin to end up together and happy. 😛

And others acted like she was ruined (well they were asses but still).More relaxed, oh my, are our evil ways rubbing off on you lol.@CarrieI guess all books can't be a hit, but at least you did like one of her books 😀 Which one?@KayeSo true, and with HR you always know. But there journey there is fun and you never know.

    Aww it sounds cute! I know what you mean about wanting to know what'll happen to them. Even with the reassurance of the HEA I'm still often on the edge of my seat. ;)I've never heard of this author, will keep my eyes out for her work

    Witty, charming and a lost dog? YOu know you might make me read this one…even if the cover is truly horrible. I am allergic to pink. I will have to wear gloves if I get the paperback version….

  10. Blodeuedd says:

    @JennyIt was not the plan at first, it kind of just happens. But yes she truly wants out of the engagement and saw a chance. And backfire it did. Good, I do love good HR :D@AudraTrue. I really need HEAs and happiness all around. And books like this one truly gives you that. And still I sit there and wonder if it will happen@MishaShe was fun, there was this oen scene, oh I can't say, lol.And it was so cute 😀 Cute and entertaining.@ElysiumLol, it sure it. She was one crazy lady.@CherryIt is 😀

  11. Blodeuedd says:

    @DeannaIt was amusing and fun. I just love sweet HR. Sure something does happen at the end, but I sometimes I just want cute and it happening later on. We all know what ;)It is such a weird feeling. Here I thought, oh no! She will end up with her ex again. Even though I knew that would not happen@CaroIt is fun 😀 I like being on the edge of my seat and still knowing it will all work out and they will marry and have babies and live happily ever after.Then I am glad I brought her to your attention. She has many more on her backlist.@AMusedLol, I know, I am evil like that 😉

I love pink 😀 You know I did not like it when I was little but now it is totally ok. I was such a tomboy@JennyShe was great! I love freaky aunts

  13. StephanieD says:

    Okay – I am curious as to how Gabrielle all of a sudden goes up to the Viscount and kisses him. And why a Viscount is walking his mother's dog??? I guess I have to actually read this book to get my answers.

  14. Blodeuedd says:

    @StephShe sees him and seizes the opportunity as her dad is nearby. And his mother is dead so he still walks her dog. But yes for more detailed answers it is the book you should ask ;)@ChrisYay all around@CaroleI love cute and fun 😀 And so funny to what was scandalous back then.@MelissaIt was. I need books like these cos they just make me so darn happy

  15. Blodeuedd says:

With some you can just jump right in :D@StaciI do hope you read one soon, oh and a chance to win one this Thursday here!@NiseShe is fun, I do like her style

  16. Blodeuedd says:
