    For the past two years Viola Thornhill life has been peaceful and calm After picking up the pieces of her life and starting anew, Viola s life seems almost perfect Until she meets a handsome stranger at a May Day celebration and is warned by a fortuneteller there, to beware of him as he could destroy her life if she doesn t snare his heart first Not taking the warning to heed, Viola finds herself attracted to this stranger and at the end of the fair, kisses from him Thinking nothingof For the past two years Viola Thornhill life has been peaceful and calm After picking up the pieces of her life and starting anew, Viola s life seems almost perfect Until she meets a handsome stranger at a May Day celebration and is warned by a fortuneteller there, to beware of him as he could destroy her life if she doesn t snare his heart first Not taking the warning to heed, Viola finds herself attracted to this stranger and at the end of the fair, kisses from him Thinking nothingof this stranger, she s surprised to see him at her door and telling her that he s the new owner of her home Lord Ferdinand Dudley has always had a wild streak in him, always willing to take up any challenge After he wins in a card game, no less, the picturesque Pinewood Manor, he feels mighty happy for himself That is until he goes toe to toe with the resident and so called owner of the manor With the owner scheming along with the neighbors to have him booted out, Ferdinand charms, and outwits anything thrown at him While trying to fight the growing temptation to his unruly opponent But when a wager is thrown down by Viola between her and Ferdinand, there sat stake then the manor but their hearts are now on the line It s hard to have a sequel that can hold up to it s beloved predecessor, No Man s Mistress does this and , holding it s on The story takes place four years later after More Than A Mistress with Ferdinand the younger brother of Jocelyn The first half of the book is charming as Viola tries to protect her home by pulling childish pranks to get Ferdinand out, but time and again she can t help but admire his will to prove her wrong, as slowly she sees he s not the big bad wolf she thought him to be Viola s past haunts and torments her deeply, and to save not only her family but her sense of self, Viola throws down a wager she quickly regrets I liked Viola, at first I thought she was very childish in trying to kick Ferdinand, then later just down right bullheaded that I wanted to smack her upside the head a few I felt her running away to many times somewhat tiresome and really dragged down the story toward the end Plus, how she kept throwing hurtful words into Ferdinand s face was a low blow although the first time he did deserve it But as the puzzle pieces fall into place, Viola wasn t thinking about herself or even her well being but her beloved family and the shame she felt she would bring to Ferdinand if he knew the truth about her Ferdinand, FerdinandI adore his name as much as I adore him While his brother was cold and sometimes coming across as unfeeling Ferdinand is happy go lucky, but has had his share of past hurts from his parents but mostly his mother which caused him to look at sex differently Carefree and charming with a innocence about him made him such a great hero, I totally fell in love with him, cried when he cried and hurt when Viola turned him away Ferdinand was a lot stronger than he first appears, and willing to sacrifice even his heart for his lady love to be happy. I cheered for Ferdinand when he finally was able to get through Viola s thick skull It made me mad that she had such little trust in him, after all he did for her But leave it to Ferdinand to win any challenge he puts his mind to The love scenes between Viola and Ferdinand were so touchy and sweet, they were true love scenes in ever form and fashion Together, both are great and bring something to the table the other lacks The love between them gives you that warm fuzzy feeling long after It was also great to revisit the Dudley family, Jocelyn has become a totally different man, showing how much he loves his family and his brother whom he s very proud of Makes me wish to see the next gen of Dudleys I was also happy that the villain got his just desserts by the hands of Ferdinand with some help from his brother.Overall one of those books that surprise and delight you, that makes you smile and get a little teary eyed at the end as you read the happy ever after of this beloved couple

    Too much stupidity I hated it Viola did too many stupid things which ruined the story for me.She was the illegitimate daughter of an Earl who promised her ownership of an estate view spoiler When he died she moved there, but she never went after the paperwork to prove her rights to it When Ferdinand later arrived and claimed it, she refused to leave even though he appeared to have legal rights, which I felt was wrong of her at that time Later she offered him a wager that if she could sed Too much stupidity I hated it Viola did too many stupid things which ruined the story for me.She was the illegitimate daughter of an Earl who promised her ownership of an estate view spoiler When he died she moved there, but she never went after the paperwork to prove her rights to it When Ferdinand later arrived and claimed it, she refused to leave even though he appeared to have legal rights, which I felt was wrong of her at that time Later she offered him a wager that if she could seduce him within a week, he would have to sign the land to her legally He was stupid enough to accept the wager and then he lost They fell in love with each other, he wanted to marry her, but she said no because she loved him too much and felt her past would hurt him, which again was stupid because he knew about her past and did not care Before she had the land, she had become a high paid courtesan to pay off her family s debts The Earl then paid off her pimp to free her when he gave her the land Later, the pimp believed the paid in full papers had been lost so he went after her saying she still owed him Instead of getting Ferdinand s help, she decided to leave Ferdinand and return to the business of working for the pimp Later, she decided to go to Ferdinand s brother and borrow the money to pay off the pimp, and she would promise never to see Ferdinand again, so she would look like a mercenary to Ferdinand In the end it was Ferdinand who solved the problem with the pimp hide spoiler This whole thing was too stupid, unbelievable and frustrating for me to read I hated it Sexual content mild

    Lovely story with few surprises along the way I came out liking Ferdinand muchthan Viola, our heroine I really appreciate that Mary Balogh is not afraid to deal with hard subjects in this story I always trust her to pull of even the most difficult plot into a satisfying conclusion MB has a skill for making really good arguments that strongly justify characters actions, words and thoughts that s why I love to read her Everything makes sense even though it is completely fabricated Whe Lovely story with few surprises along the way I came out liking Ferdinand muchthan Viola, our heroine I really appreciate that Mary Balogh is not afraid to deal with hard subjects in this story I always trust her to pull of even the most difficult plot into a satisfying conclusion MB has a skill for making really good arguments that strongly justify characters actions, words and thoughts that s why I love to read her Everything makes sense even though it is completely fabricated When our MC s start to live together in the same house, crazy idea, Mary Balogh made it absolutely believable and my super critical and analytical brain could buy into The relationship between H h is beautiful, almost destined to be, with some angst that was squeezing my heart as I read it.But the book didn t sweep me of my feet as the 1 in this series did I think it was the heroine she was quite a challenge
