When you wish upon an earl . . .

Harriet Hathaway has only ever wanted one man: the Earl of Roxley. After a passionate interlude at a house party, Harriet is convinced Roxley will do the right thing and propose. But when she returns to London, she finds the roguish earl on the verge of proposing to another.

Yet Harriet refuses to believe that her hopes of a happily-ever-after are completely lost--for she can see the desire still flickering in the earl's eyes when he looks at her from across the dance floor. And when they are alone . . . there is one wish neither can deny.

. . . the most extraordinary things can happen

The Earl of Roxley is in a dangerous fix--and to keep Harriet safe, he must hold her at arm's length. He won't entangle her in the murderous mystery that is threatening to destroy his family and his future. But keeping Harriet Hathaway out of his troubles proves as impossible as it is to keep the determined beauty from stealing his heart.

I really like Elizabeth Boyle, and her Rhymes With Love series, but I’m not sure this was its strongest entry. I really liked both Harriet and Roxley, and enjoyed their interactions in earlier books, but the heavy reliance on flashbacks for this story made it feel like you were entering a love story midway through, rather than getting to appreciate its full arc, and at times it felt like the adventure/revenge plot took precedence over the romance. It was still well-written and funny and full of great characters – it’s just not the absolute best that Elizabeth Boyle has produced.
