Everyone knows that all the members of the St. John family are destined for greatness - all, that is, except the rebellious Chase St. John. Then, as the fates would have it, a lifetime of drinking, gambling and womanising catches up and leads him to a fateful incident which changes his life. Harriet Ward, on the other hand, has always felt the weight of responsibility caring for her mother and two brothers, but drawing the line at marrying a stuffy bore to save her home, she creates an imaginary fiance, Captain John. There is no one more surprised than she when Chase conveniently shows up, wounded by an unknown attacker, to fill the role of her suitor. As they pose as lovers and begin to unravel the mystery of Chase's assailant, they soon realise that their imaginary love has quickly turned into reality.… (més)

Not as good as the first two in the series. I liked the characters and the story, but it dragged in the middle. 3 1/2 stars. ( )

I was excited to get back to this series and read how the tailsman ring was going to thwart yet another of the St. John men. Chase was stuck with it at the end of the last book, and I think his story was pretty good. He learns and grows a lot in this book which was good for him. Harriet was a strong lead and I truly enjoyed the banter between them. I would love to read more about her family. Wonder if Hawkins ever wrote any of their stories?.. Anyway, I thought this was a good addition to the series. I am looking forward to Marcus' story.. though his is not up next... it looks like Devon's bachelor life is going to be taken down by a Scottish woman! Should be interesting!

"3 out of 5 stars. It was a very cute story. More tamed then I would have liked but it still kept my interest, wanting to see where this sweet romance between Chase and Harriet would lead."

I loved the hero and the story was fun, but I could not understand why this gorgeous, entertaining, wealthy man would have any interest in the heroine. Harriet is utterly humorless, lies, has a martyr complex, and though Chase sometimes exclaims at her beauty he also regularly describes her as plain. I am glad he could see her inner beauty, but I did not. She constantly talks about how handsome Chase is, she in fact says little else that is complimentary about him. Harriet is straight up shallow, and also dishonest and manipulative, so the inner beauty thing was well hidden.

Grammar presented another issue. I am no grammar Nazi, but when writing dialogue for a wealthy titled man in the 19th century proper grammar is essential. The most jarring was repeated misuse of "whoever" when "whomever" is meant. This is an error an educated man at that time would never have made. It seems a small thing, but it took me out of the story. ( )

Lacklustre regency that didn't keep my interest, but I love the series as a whole.
