Review: Lady Mercy Danforthe flirts with scandal - Jayne Fresina

Lady Mercy likes her life neat and tidy. She prides herself on being practical - like her engagement to Viscount Grey, whose dark colouring co-ordinates very well with her favourite furnishings. But things start to get messy when her best friend abandons her fiance at the altar, leaving it up to Mercy to help the couple. There's just one problem. The jilted man is Rafe Hartley—Mercy's former husband.

Rafe has not forgiven Mercy for deserting him when they were seventeen. Their hasty marriage was declared void by law, but in his eyes the bossy little vixen was still his wife, even if the marriage lasted only a few hours. And Mercy "Silky Drawers" Danforthe still owes him a wedding night.

My thoughts:
Lady Mercy was the annoying brat from book 2, and Rafe still calls her that, brat. Two people that are so wrong for each other, that they just might be right for each other.

Lady Mercy loves order, and to play around with other people's lives. But she is sweet, in her own way. She just wants things to be perfect.

Rafe is all the things she is not. He can be messy, does not care what people think and does what he wants too. Kind of Lady meets the tramp (if we make the tramp a farmer.) But the attraction is there, beneath the annoyance they feel for each other.

I would not call it an easy love story. He calls her brat and all kind of things. She wants him to find happiness with someone else. They argue, then they yell, then they kiss. Love can sure be found in all places and these two will fight it to the bitter end.

conclusion:
An amusing tale that I read fast.
