Kurzbeschreibung

Although this book is part of a trilogy, each book is a stand-alone story in its own right.

Charlotte Webster thought she was eloping with the love of her life. She did not expect it to be a ploy and a way to force her way to a marriage with a stranger, who wanted an innocent bride. Held in a house of ill repute, there is little time to act to try and escape and few options to consider.

Lord Halkyn is a peer much in demand, but an expert at avoiding marriage. He has always had fixed ideas on love-it causes too many problems to be worth the trouble. He did consider marriage to one lady once, but it would have been a business transaction. Unfortunately for him, the lady in question had wanted to marry for love and had refused him. Rather than ridicule her, his opinion of her increased and he began to wonder if there was something in the nonsense that was love after all.

When visiting his favourite house of ill repute, run by a Baron, he is accosted by a woman. He is begged for help in escaping from the house. Whether it was the real fear in her voice, or whether it was the devil in him, he helped her. Suddenly his life was to become far more complicated.

Protecting an innocent, employing the services of Bow Street and racing across country, all situations that he could never have anticipated when he was first sought out by Miss Charlotte Webster.

His life was never going to be the same again.

3.0 von 5 Sternen better than the first 15. Juni 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
In the second part of the trilogy Harrison's style of writing is better than in the first. Still characters jump onto the scene out of nowhere, Lord Halkyn has rather suddenly become a dear friend of Lady Dunham but there is a lot more to the story. For me there are still too many of the characters' thoughts laid open but it's not as often done as in the first book and since there are two stories interwoven it's quite good to read. But it's not a book I would keep to read a second time.

Harrison wants her heroines to be witty but they're really not and will never be if she doesn't give the reader time to get to know them. So far they are only beautiful and usually can't decide between being shy or fast forward. Everything which would add to their character is only told by them at some time but is never really part of the book which makes it far less interesting. She could have started her story at the boarding school where Charlotte is at the brink of escaping and we would have a better idea of her life and time to sympathize with her character instead of letting her start off with a strange kissing scene which wasn't really convincing since Lord Halkyn could have hidden her without exchanging passionate kisses. People don't become extraordinary just by saying they are. You have to make them act accordingly.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This was 9. Juni 2014
Von KB's Mom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
EXCELLENT! This is one of the most well written books I've read to date from Amazon. The grammar, spelling, and punctuation made the narrative flow. The characters were well developed plus, While there were a couple of really bad guys, they were not critical to the story.
I found out that this is the second book in a trilogy. Still I was so caught up in the story, it not really matter. This is the first book I've read by this author and I will be reading more.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Hero had Great Possibilities, However, He Turned out Grumpy and Cynical 1. Juli 2014
Von Judge Tabor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
After reading "An Inconvenient Ward," I immediately decided to read "An Inconvenient Wife" and thought this book took off like a charm but fell flat about 1/4th of the way into the storyline. When we find Lord Halkyn in a less than respectable house with a young woman asking him to kiss her so that she can "hide" from the bad guys, he complies and soon finds himself in way over his head. Our not-quite-18-years-of-age little heroine, Charlotte Webster, fresh out of the classroom, had apparently fallen for one of the staff at her school, thought they would be married, never realizing he was working for a debauched baron who kept a house of ill repute a few miles out of London. Voila, she is deceived, kidnapped and winds up in a brothel where she runs into Stephen Halkyn.

Halkyn, who we met in "An Inconvenient Ward" was originally introduced to the reader as a potential marriage candidate for Elizabeth. Apparently, his reputation is less than stellar and he frequents bawdy houses, etc. But he would never go along with kidnapping and once he finds out why Charlotte was in the brothel, agrees to help her escape. Where to take her? - to Elizabeth's and Michael's of course, so we do have the advantage of seeing how our H/h from the first book are doing and that was cool.

Although both Stephen and Charlotte had some interesting attributes, in my opinion, some parts of the dialogue and the storyline were somewhat flat. **Spoilers follow** When Charlotte was kidnapped toward the last 1/4 of the book and shoved out of the carriage, it was literally unbelievable to me that everyone decided they would stay put at Michael's and Elizabeth's home and send only the Bow Street Runner to try and find out what happened to her. Hello? What kind of hero stays behind when the only evidence of Charlotte's fall from the carriage is a boulder with blood on it - no body, just blood. I don't think so. This was a real weakness in the storyline. Also, Stephen's continual grumpiness and cynicism didn't do anything to make him likeable.

Lastly, a note to Ms. Harrison and/or her editor: Someone needs to correct the usage of the word "gentile." I believe the intended word is - "genteel" - a "gentile" is a person who is not Jewish. A glaring mistake and if memory serves, this term was also used in "An Inconvenient Ward."

3.0 von 5 Sternen Hmmm.... 12. Juni 2014
Von Ilovetobake - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Let me start of saying this author has a great amount of potential and I think it won't be long before I'll be giving her 'fives'. For a second book I think it was a great effort. I enjoyed the storyline but do (sorry) have a couple minor critiques. Sometimes the language was a bit stilted, the point was understandable but it didn't seem to flow naturally as mutual conversation. The h was not much of a h, imo. While she was presented as being mature for a seventeen yr old, in too many instances she acted like a thirteen yr old. She also had a bit of a smart mouth, even with men of rank, I just can't see that happening in that time period, most especially by a title less, dowerless, girl without family upper connections.The closer it got to the end of the book the more I was ready for the H to give her up as a lost cause and find someone more befitting his station. Seventeen in that time period was not really that young, many girls were married with children. They also would have been very respectful of upper rank and would not have spoken the way she did to Earls. Most especially not called them almost immediately by their first name.

2.0 von 5 Sternen An unfortunate introduction 7. Juli 2014
Von lark - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Some of the narrative was quite nice. Much of the dialogue, however, was stilted, lacking an easy flow.

That could have been dismissed had the hero been heroic. The heroine was dead, dying, or in great peril at the least, and he sat on his duff and waited for Bow Street to track her down. Not my kind of hero.

The "hero" issue is just a matter of personal preference, of course, and the dialogue will become more fluid with time. The author definitely shows promise and I will be back.

Note to editor: Please. It's "genteel," not "gentile." A little jarring, that.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Rake & Ingenue done well! 20. Mai 2014
Von Regency fan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Loved this book! I am so glad that AH put the trilogy on at the same time, as I literally finished An Incovenient Ward and went straight into An Inconvenient Wife. (Aren't Kindles amazing?) The premise of Rake & Ingenue has been done thousands of times, yet when done well, it never gets old. This is one of those! And, contrary to the title, the "trapped into marriage" device is not what keeps the couple together, they don't marry until the end. AH does a great job of sustaining tension, allowing proximity to each other, interaction and chemistry to engage you into caring for both. If you read the first book and did not care for Stephen there, (I happened to like him, as I have a soft spot for rakes that are just waiting to be reformed) as he is secondary character there, you MUST read this next one. The scenes and predicaments never felt contrived, and engaged me enough to read this into the wee hours of the night. Out of the 3 books of the trilogy, this one is my favorite! I loved Charlotte and Stephen separately, and loved their characters even more together. This is a keeper for me. And, you get to see more of Michael and Elizabeth (from book 1) in this book…what's not to love?
