Overworked London banker David Hawke has two goals for his week in the seaside town of Brighton: one, demand repayment of a debt without losing a valued friendship and two, relax for the remaining holiday without further distractions—except he encounters his friend’s newly confident younger sister.
Abigail Watson is flirty, bold, and determined David will agree to her bargain and save her brother from debtor’s prison. But is her game to prevent him from calling in the debt, or are her sweet kisses a sign she is after a much greater prize instead?
Title: Miss Watson’s First Scandal: A Miss Mayhem Novella, Author: Heather Boyd, Publisher: LLD Press
ISBN: 9780987561404, Format: E-Book $2.99, Release Date: July 2, 2013, Genre: Regency Historical Romance, How I Read It: E-Arc via NetGalley, Rating:
I found the setting of Brighton to be unique. Normally books of this nature would be set in the glitz and glamour of London, so a seaside setting was very refreshing.
David Hawke enjoys going to Brighton to relax, have fun, and go for a naked morning dip in the sea. This year he has the unfortunate business of foreclosing on his friend—and neighbors—house. When Peter’s sister Abigail convinces David to hold off the foreclosure then kisses him out of thanks, then curiosity they both begin to wonder just how deep their feelings go.
I didn’t like it, I didn’t hate it. It was just one of those books that was a fun read, but nothing really happens. Even the secret identity of Abigail’s best friend wasn’t all that thrilling.
Overall, this made for a fun weekend read, but not much else.
