    1. This is part two in Alexandra Benedict’s Too trilogy, the heroine of this story, Henry, we already met briefly in part one of this trilogy. Alexandra Benedict has written another classic, historical romance full of passion, danger and entanglements. What hallmarks her writing is that it is very laid-back to read, her storyline is always fluent and her characters are appealing and very well fleshed out. Henrietta (Henry) Ashby has had an unusual childhood, her father raised her as a boy and cal [...]

    2. In a previous book, we met Henrietta Ashby, fondly known as Henry. Being the youngest of four girls she is her father's favorite, thus spoiled. Henry gets everything she wants, except Viscount Ravenswood. She has been in love with him since a child. She knows he loves her too, he is just too stubborn to realize it.No matter how much she chases after him, he will not give in. Even when she wears revealing gowns and flirts relentlessly, he only treats her as a younger sister.Viscount Ravenswood, w [...]

    3. Henrietta a.k.a. Henry is the youngest Ashby and so she's spoiled and very childish, since she was 12 she's been infatuated with Sebastian, Viscount Ravenswood, so she follows him around trying to make him notice her. It was like imagining me and my clumsiness attempting and miserably failing to seduce a seducer.Sebastian's father convinced him that he was wicked and always would be; that's why he doesn't want to marry and having the title succession solved with his brother he concentrates on be [...]

    4. Okay, let's start with the good stuff. I really loved the book. I thought the story was believable. I think every girl has day dreamed about a guy, making him too perfect in her mind only later to find out he has flaws.I will say there were a few editorial issues that sort of bothered me. For example, if one more character "bristled" I was going to scream. There are so many words in the world there was no need for someone to "bristle" in every chapter.All that being said I have to thank Miss Ben [...]

    5. I could not get through this book page 275 and I had enough. I really enjoyed this genre one upon a time but this book I could not really get into.Lord Ravenswood was the typical rogue who would not marry because he was bad and Henrietta was the usual character, falls for the rogue, who she has known since she was a youngster. with all the toing and froing we know how it is going to end.

    6. How the hell do you go from the so-called hero getting a blow-job from a whore dress as a nun after walking away from the heroine who had been trying to seduce him but pretending to not be interested in him so he wouldn't know that she wanted to in fact married him so she learn the art of seduction from a courtesan to only have him find out she has been playing him this whole time so he goes and get a blow job from a whore dressed as a nun and she witnesses it and somehow they get engaged and he [...]

    7. Henrietta "Henry" Ashby & Viscount Sebastian RavenswoodShe saw him at age 12 and fell in love with him. 8 years later she decides to seduce him by consulting a famous "courtesan". She wins him but they quarrel and she goes to what she thinks is an abbey but is really home to the "Hell Fire" club where they dress as monks and nuns but don't act like it. I really disliked that whole part.Review

    8. I can't get over how Henrietta goes by Henry. I forget that she's a female which makes this a little more gender ambiguous than I like. Also Henry has been chasing after Sebastian since she was 12. Sebastian's younger brother of 36 is married to Henry's oldest sister he's at least 16 years older than her. Eww.

    9. Unfortunately this was a DNF. I've tried reading it a couple times now, and have gotten to the same spot and just stopped. Both paper copy and ebook copy!I guess the set-up just isn't my thing.

    10. We'll make this short and sweet: Fast read, fun fluff. Though I admit Ravenswood's dark secret was most unusual!
