A Four StarReview of A HOYDEN AND AN HEIRESS by Kristin Vayden

“Irritation isn’t an adventure. And he is quite possibly the dullest…”

Finally, Berty’s story has come to light. For those who have followed the Greenford Water Series, you have probably been just as anxious as I to see how Berty’s story would unfold. For she is a bit of a rebellious soul, a bit precocious, a young woman with a keen intelligence and an overwhelming need for adventure. Really, she is extremely headstrong. Concerned for her own match, Berty is worried that her sisters’ matches and their adventure at finding love will overshadow her own, leaving her with the “dullest of the lot.” But when she is tasked with accompanying a spy—a rather dull and overly controlled one—she can’t help but find herself frustrated and a bit intrigued by the aggravation he causes her.

She wondered if maybe she’s just played not with fire…But with harsh unforgiving ice.”

When Henry Wilcox was asked by the Duke of Clairmont to take his charge with him while working undercover to discover from whence a leak in the country regiment is coming, he is expecting a spoiled society chit. In fact, the duke made it quite clear that Miss Roberta Lamont was a “bloody handful.” To be saddled with her for the length of a month was more than he was wanting. He didn’t need a cover story, but the duke insisted. However, once they embark on the journey, Henry quickly finds himself second guessing his original assumption about the young woman, and is introduced to her intelligence and persistence, learning just how cunning and aware she truly is. He cannot underestimate Berty, and finds he may have just met his match.

Bloody hell, that woman had him constantly guessing. And it was both brilliant and alarming. Erotic and disconcerting.”

As I have come to expect from Kristin Vayden, she weaves together a passionate and intriguing story filled with characters whose chemistry and interactions have readers laughing and cheering as the antics fill the page. My only criticism of this story was the simplicity and the ease is which readers will predict the unfolding of this tale. However, it was once again wonderful to visit Greenford Waters and the unexpected women who rebel against the conventions of the ton.

*Although this is the 4th book in the Greenford Water Series, this book can easily be read as a standalone. But I guarantee readers will want to learn of the antics and adventures that have befallen the others who have come before.

 

“I’m
quite certain I can have approval by tonight.”
“You’re
far too forthright for your own good, so I’ll not meet with you this evening.
How about as you take your… morning ride?” A grin tipped his lips, and Berty
felt herself smile in response, even as her irritation rose at his words.
“What
do you mean I’m too forthright?”
Mr.
Willox nodded to the door behind her. “You’re in a room with an unmarried
gentleman with the door closed. Quite compromising, Miss Lamont.
“I’m
quite certain I’m more than safe.” She sighed, beleaguered.
“It’s
still a considerable risk, Miss Lamont. One person peeking in, and you’re stuck
with me for the rest of your life.” He shrugged.
“Rather,
you’re stuck with me.” She smiled sweetly in return. “But that wasn’t the
danger I was referring to. I’m quite aware of the social conventions. I’m
referring to the fact that of all men I’ve been acquainted with, you’re the
least likely to be forward or act in a manor that’s even minimally flirtatious.”
“Is
that so?” Mr. Willox crossed his arms, his grin melting into more of a daring
expression.
“Yes,”
Berty replied directly, not concerned in the slightest, yet in the back of her mind,
she remembered Lady Southridge’s words…
And
wondered.
And
when he took a step forward, rather than taking a step back, she held fast.
When
he tipped her chin upward, rather than jerk away, she met his gaze with a
challenging one of her own.
Certainly,
when he lowered his head, she should have never leaned in.
Or
closed her eyes.
Or
breathed in his sigh just before his lips reached hers.
But
if love was adventure, certainly that meant one needed to take a few risks.

And
as his lips caressed her own, she fleetingly thought that it was a worthwhile
risk indeed.

Kristin’s inspiration for the romance she writes comes from her tall, dark and handsome husband with killer blue eyes. With five children to chase, she is never at a loss for someone to kiss, something to cook or some mess to clean but she loves every moment of it! Life is full—of blessings and adventure! Needless to say she’s a big fan of coffee and wine…and living in Washington she’s within walking distance of both!
