Description

When you wish upon an earl . . .

Harriet Hathaway has only ever wanted one man: the Earl of Roxley. After a passionate interlude at a house party, Harriet is convinced Roxley will do the right thing and propose. But when she returns to London, she finds the roguish earl on the verge of proposing to another.

Yet Harriet refuses to believe that her hopes of a happily-ever-after are completely lost—for she can see the desire still flickering in the earl's eyes when he looks at her from across the dance floor. And when they are alone . . . there is one wish neither can deny.

. . . the most extraordinary things can happen

The Earl of Roxley is in a dangerous fix—and to keep Harriet safe, he must hold her at arm's length. He won't entangle her in the murderous mystery that is threatening to destroy his family and his future. But keeping Harriet Hathaway out of his troubles proves as impossible as it is to keep the determined beauty from stealing his heart.

        "Witty dialogue, charming characters, and a heartbreakingly romantic plot enlivened with snippets from the heroine's beloved Miss Darby books and seasoned with a pinch of mystery make Boyle's latest, cleverly constructed Rhymes with Love series historical an absolute knockout." — Booklist (starred review) on IF WISHES WERE EARLS

        "Written with a quirky sense of humor that spills onto nearly every page, If Wishes Were Earls is a madcap story that will entertain anyone who has enjoyed the previous books... [A] light-hearted and amusing tale." — Historical Novel Society on IF WISHES WERE EARLS

        November 25, 2013
        The curse of Kempton has been broken with the marriages of Tabitha Timmons and Daphne Dale (in previous Rhymes with Love novels And the Miss Ran Away with the Rake and Along Came a Duke). Now their best friend, Harriet “Harry” Hathaway, has set her cap for the Earl of Roxley. Harry is no simpering London miss and does not hesitate to interfere with Roxley’s plans to marry the oh-so-proper and well-dowried Miss Murray. Meanwhile, Roxley realizes his imminent social and financial ruin is being orchestrated by an unseen enemy, and the scheme is somehow related to a years-old mystery involving a legendary diamond necklace and his parents’ deaths. Frequent flashbacks disrupt the flow, but the conspiracy is complex and well-plotted. Roxley and Harry’s lovemaking is bold and direct, and their passionate interludes would be hot enough to singe the sheets except that “there was never a demmed bed around.” Some inconsistencies mar this otherwise satisfying Regency romance that perfectly fits Harry’s outrageous personality.

        Starred review from December 15, 2013
        How could the Earl of Roxley have forgotten their kiss? For the last eight months, all Harriet Hathaway can think about is the perfect kiss she shared with him at the masquerade ball at Owle Park. Now, months later, when Harriet finally sees Roxley again at yet another soiree, not only does the only man she has ever loved not seem to remember their encounter, he is about to marry someone else. Roxley never forgot his first kiss with Harriet Hathaway. The problem is that ever since that night at Owle Park, Roxley's legendary luck seems to have run out. In debt up to his ears, he has no choice but to marry Miss Murray. Roxley knows the only honorable thing to do is to cut Harriet out of his life completely, but Harriet is equally determined to find a way to keep them together, once and for all. Witty dialogue, charming characters, and a heartbreakingly romantic plot enlivened with snippets from the heroine's beloved Miss Darby books and seasoned with a pinch of mystery make Boyle's latest, cleverly constructed Rhymes with Love series historical an absolute knockout.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2013, American Library Association.)
