Harry will find that his ploy is not easy as feelings start to stir inside him. He will want more from this widow but he also has the mission he must complete.
Going back to Jane Feather I found the series Cavendish Square Trilogy. The last series I had read was with three brothers and it seems I am switching it up as this series is about three women.
A Wicked Gentleman was a very good book. I liked the immediate intrigue which pushed you into the book as there was mystery with this house and what it contained. All three women are featured in the book but Corneila is the main character with Harry as the suitor. I thought Feather does a fantastic job with how Harry and Corneila interacted throughout the book. There was a battle between them but a surrender every time. I liked the concept of codes and espionage that circled the book’s plot, it wasn’t in your face but subtle. I knew that once Harry embarked on his mission there would be trouble when Corneila finds out and I was not wrong, but then when you keep things hidden they always get uncovered.
I will have to say that I am interested in what will else will happen with these woman at Cavendish Square especially as we do not know everything about the last proprietor, Lady Sophia. Since I have picked up the other two books in the series the answers should come quickly.
