A very cute historical romance A Little Night Mischief was a sweet book that charmsFelicity was a good heroine though I had a couple of issues with her that made me knock off a star She was very stubborn in her opinions and that ended up being to her disadvantage Despite her good impression of James in their anonymous first meeting she immediately hates him for being the man that won her house in a game of cards At first it was understandable But after James showed himself to be a good man a true gentleman her persistence in thinking bad of him was frustrating And even after she decided that she did like James she insisted upon trying to drive him away this time in order to protect her heart It wasn't a major problem but it was irritating Nonetheless I did like her character Later in the book she loosens up and becomes a genuinely likable heroine If anything her stubbornness revealed a strength of character And besides that she was a clever strong woman whose determination was admirableJames was amazing from the beginning He had his reasons for seeking to own the estate which were selfless in nature He was so sweet and charming He had me falling for him within the first chapter As I mentioned before he was a true gentleman He was utterly perfect everything a romance hero should beThe romance between these two was very sweet despite the obstacles Even when they were at odds it was clear that they were perfect together And when the sparks flew it got hot The plot was fast paced I loved the playfulness within the book With the tag line for the series I was hoping for that and this book delivered The lightheartedness was so cute It had me smiling throughout the whole book And it kept me hooked all the way to the sweet perfect endingA Little Night Mischief was a lovely lighthearted historical romance Lovers of romance you should definitely give this book a readThanks to Netgalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca for a copy

I gave this a C over at AAR which I suppose is 25 starsThis regency era romance from debut author Emily Greenwood promised much There’s a certain whimsical nature to the plot the hero is uite devastatingly gorgeous aren’t they all and the writing is well crafted But it became clear uite early on that the premise while rather delightfully uirky was also extremely flimsy and I found that the heroine got on my nerves uite uicklyFelicity Wilcox is twenty years old and thanks to a profligate uncle she and her somewhat eccentric father find themselves ousted from their family home Tethering and have to move in to Blossom Cottage a much smaller house on the edge of the estateThe book opens with Felicity being almost knocked into a stream and rescued by a handsome stranger They converse share a picnic and are instantly attracted to each other When they go their separate ways Felicity allows herself to dream a little about him wondering if she will ever see him again When he turns out to be none other than Mr James Collington the man who won the Tethering estate from her uncle she is furious – as much because she fancies him as because he’s living in her old home – and is then determined to get him to leave the house by whatever means necessaryA few days later she overhears some servants at Tethering gossiping about someone having a morbid fear of ghosts and immediately jumps to the conclusion that they are talking about James Felicity comes up with a plan to scare him away by dressing up as a ghost and prowling around the house at night making spooky noisesJames is however wise to her almost straight away; and when her ghostly apparition doesn’t affect him at all she tries to embarrass him by disguising herself as the local tart and flaunting herself before some of his friends and familyThroughout all this the two are so hot for each other it’s a wonder they don’t spontaneously combust although I regret to say that the sex scenes don’t really measure up There’s one that’s so ridiculous that it actually made me start to laugh rather than make me want to fan myselfNow I have no problem with fluff – in fact I enjoy a nice light hearted read and I had high hopes for this book But sadly the premise is so flawed as to have made it difficult for me to enjoy the story The whole thing is built on a very unsteady foundation Felicity’s uncle lost his estate at the gaming tables not an unusual basis for an historical romance But Felicity has it in her head that this cannot be legal and contacts the family solicitor in the hopes that the transaction will be proven unlawful and James Collington will be shown to have no rights to the propertyFrom that conviction stem all her schemes to get rid of James – and yet I kept asking myself why Felicity supposedly an intelligent woman would have the notion that there was anything to be done which could return the property to her and her father who by the way was able to accept the situation Perhaps one could say that she was so desperate as to clutch at straws but it just didn’t ring true – and as for the idea about pretending to be a ghost well that just rang stupidAnd then there’s the fact that although she wants to get James out of the house she’s besotted with him as is he with her About half way through the book Felicity learns from the solicitor that there’s nothing to be done and she’s pretty much admitted to herself that she’s in love with James – but because she’s decided that she will never marry is determined there can be nothing between them I couldn’t help but ask myself WhyThe reason for her reluctance to marry James is while probably a big deal at the time surely nothing that they couldn’t work out between them –and when they’re caught in a compromising position they do end up marrying So why on earth set it up as an obstacle in the first place A better bet would have been to use the fact of James’ dishonesty He’s been planning to sell the estate ever since he acuired it in order to clear the debts amassed by his late brother but never told Felicity of his intention – and once he realizes he should have told her it’s too late and she finds out by accident OopsI’m afraid that I lost patience with Felicity uite early on and although James was a engaging character – not only handsome but capable intelligent and witty – I was still shaking my head at his stupidity in not owning up to Felicity his plans for the estate because let’s face it – truth will out Especially in a romantic novelOn the whole I liked the author’s style of writing – even though it was liberally peppered with the Americanisms that litter so many historical romances “gotten” is NOT a real word people – and she had a sure hand with much of the dialogue But no amount of descriptions of how gorgeously broad shoulderedtight buttockedwell muscled the hero is and there are a lot of them will make up for a plot with holes than the best Emmental
