Summary

A mistaken kiss. A forced engagement. Can it become something more?

Lily Kingsley accepts that she is destined to be a spinster - but not until she gets her first kiss. And she knows the perfect gentleman to enlist. Unfortunately, she kisses the wrong one and ends up in the arms of an overbearing and exceptionally frustrating merchant.

When busybodies catch them in their illicit embrace, an engagement is the only solution, but Lily doesn’t want a fiancé who’s only doing his duty. And she certainly doesn’t want a gentleman far too used to getting his own way. She simply must make him see how ill-suited they are.

But why is the fellow so determined to see their engagement through?

Jack Hatcher hates surprises, but when a beguiling lady mistakes him for someone else and launches herself into his arms, he discovers not all surprises are bad. Marriage was not in Jack’s plans, but Lily stirs something inside him he never expected to feel.

But with his fiancé desperate to break with him and a new enemy working to woo Lily away, Jack discovers force of will won’t keep her by his side. Can he find a way to win her heart before it’s lost forever?

The Victorian Love series is a spin-off series that follows the children of the heroes and heroines of the Regency Love Series. Each book in both series is a stand-alone sweet historical romance and can be listened to in any order.

Loved it

I've loved all the books I've read by M A Nichols - all so different! I think Madeleleine Brolly is a superb narrator. I have to listen to a sample of Audible books and the narrator makes my decision of whether to buy or not.

Sweet romance

Enjoyable with M A Nichol's trademark damaged hero and heroine who find love despite their unhappy pasts. A gentle listen and well written.

Great “Read”!

This is a great read! It addresses myriad of topics that women of all ages deal with: body image, insecurities, fear of rejection, - along with the challenges of falling in love with someone who has a hard time communicating because of their own challenges. It isn’t heavy on the humor side but this book doesn’t need all the witty banter because it’s characters keep you engaged regardless. It also is a truly clean read. There are a few sweet kisses but the gift of self restraint moves the story along.
I highly recommend this read for all women but it is a very worthy read for younger readers struggling with accepting that they will find love despite not looking like a magazine model.

What did i just listen to.

This was a horrible story about an unlikable woman, the tears were too much, and man. I don't believe characters like this exist, i will definitely give this author a break after this wasted credit.

Very entertaining and enjoyable

The characters were very good. I didn't expect the villain turnout to turn out to turn out the way it did. The characters' revealed backgrounds help to make the book interesting. The author made the book very interesting without having to add sex scenes.

Too much drama

Way too much crying, misunderstanding and unnecessary drama. I had to restart the telling of this story 3 times before I could finish, the performance was good.
