LADY MERCY DANFORTHE FLIRTS WITH SCANDAL
Lady Mercy Danforthe, sister to an Earl, organizes everyone and seeks to be a matchmaker on many occasions. When her childhood nemesis, Rafe Hartley, the illegitimate son of a well-born man, is left at the alter, Mercy decides to put matters to rights and find him a wife. Rafe doesn't like Mercy's interference and seeks to teach her a lesson.
LADY MERCY DANFORTHE FLIRTS WITH SCANDAL is an enjoyable historical romance with several humorous scenes and an opposites attract theme. While I, usually, enjoy a managing heroine, Mercy is, at times, a little over the top in her managing ways. However, once the reasons for her controlling and anal behavior are explained, she becomes a more sympathetic character. Rafe has something of a chip on his shoulder, because of his illegitimacy and learning who his father is when he is nearly grown. Rafe wishes to prove his worth to everyone and is hesitant to take any one's help. A union between two individuals from such different classes would be frowned on by society, and Mercy tries her best to take the safe route. Fortunately, Rafe is Mercy's kryptonite, and she soon realizes the opinions of others matter little without the love of her life.
All in all, LADY MERCY DANFORTHE FLIRTS WITH SCANDAL is an entertaining read, even though Mercy is annoying, at times.
NOTE: I received this book in return for an unbiased review.
