E- Book Review - Rakes & Radishes

Rakes & Radishes by Susanna Ives is an E-book from Carina Press and is also available from Amazon.com .

From the Publisher:

When Henrietta Watson learns that the man she loves plans to marry London's most beautiful and fashionable debutante, she plots to win him back. She'll give him some competition by transforming her boring bumpkin neighbor, the Earl of Kesseley, into a rakish gothic hero worthy of this Season's Diamond.
After years of unrequited love for Henrietta, Kesseley is resigned to go along with her plan and woo himself a willing bride. But once in London, everything changes. Kesseley-long more concerned with his land than his title-discovers that he's interested in sowing wild oats as well as radishes. And Henrietta realizes that gothic heroes don't make ideal husbands. Despite an explosive kiss that opens her eyes to the love that's been in front of her all along, Henrietta must face the possibility that Kesseley is no longer looking to marry at all...

My review:

You gotta love a story where a woman is determined to a) chase the wrong man b) change the right man and c) completely mess up her own life while trying to do the first two...  Susanna Ives manages to turn this madcap tale into a sweet story with a great historical flavor and heart-warming characters.  Henrietta is a determined young woman who can't see what's right in front of her - and that of course leads to a series of mishaps and missteps. 

If you're looking for a quick weekend download, I highly recommend Rakes and Radishes - it's fast paced, funny and engaging.
