And the Miss Ran Away with the Rake
And the Miss Ran Away with the Rake by Elizabeth Boyle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story was a funny and light read.


I found the prologue amusing – the set up of Henry Seldon by his brother, who placed an advertisement in the paper for him to find a wife. He’s about to burn them all when his sister insists that he must write every single one of the women who wrote him back. Of course, as he’s going through them, he comes across a letter from a certain someone he starts a correspondence with…

Daphne Dale doesn’t know she is corresponding with Henry Seldon. He’s using a fake name – Mr. Dishforth to be exact – and she, Miss Spooner. Truth is, if they knew who the other were, they’d both have gone running in the opposite direction due to a long history of hating each others family name.

This is such a great set up! Because they meet – and they both look at each other and “realize” they belong together…but before they can tell each other their secret identities, their families swoop in and both are left going wtf, how can this be???

Of course, this leads to a lovely chase of who will find out and when? They can’t help but be attracted to each other, and it’s sweet. It really is. These two were made for each other! ^.^

I also loved the epilogue.
