Review: Gentlemen Prefer Mischief - Emily Greenwood

It's going to take a dash of mischief to bring these two together…

If it hadn’t been for the haunted woods, Lily Teagarden would never have spoken to her neighbor, Viscount Roxham. Known to the fashionable world as Lord Perfect, to Lily he’s a man she can never respect…and the careless rogue who broke her fledgling heart. But sightings of eerie lights among his trees are causing her trouble, and she needs his help.

Intrigued by this prim beauty who was once an ugly duckling, Roxham agrees to investigate, though hardly has he begun when she mysteriously undermines his efforts. The mischief she throws in his path awakens his sleeping heart, just as his touch stirs a passion she can’t accept. But Roxham is the last man to whom Lily would surrender, and it’s going to take everything he’s got to win her love.

My thoughts:
I have reached a conclusion that I really enjoy house parties in regency romances, there are just so many opportunities for the couple to fall in love. And yes of course there is one here, why would I mention it otherwise ;)

Lily is really prim and proper. But she had to be the one who kept it all together. While Hal is carefree and reckless. He was never meant to be a viscount. She had a crush on him when younger, he crushed those feelings (well not crushed but teased it out of her). They are such an unlikely couple. But she needs someone who makes her let loose, and he needs someone that teaches him values.

The romance, oh tease tease, anger and banter. They have a long way to go and the more they argue the more they want each other.

Oh and I did not even know it was book 2 so it works awesome as a stand alone.

There is also the hunt for some lights in the woods but mostly it's about these two arguing and making it very fun to read.

Conclusion:
A light fun romance.

  4. I'd surely enjoy the teasing and the banter... anger I'm not so sure about. I've never read one of these, but I suppose it's time to give them a try.

  19. I do love arguing and banter in my romances, and this sounds like the couple has a lot to work through, so I'll be a happy camper. I also love when a series book can be read as a standalone. Awesome review!
