RT Rating

Johnson follows her joyous debut with a delightful spin-off. Her rapier wit and comedic timing lure readers into a romance that proves laughter is best shared with those you love.

Whittaker Cole, the Earl
of Thurston, and his neighbor, Miss Mirabelle Browning, have been at each other's throats since childhood. Some might call it teasing, but neither Whit
nor Mirabelle takes their battle of wills for anything less then hostility. Oh, Mirabelle knows many women would
fall at the handsome and wealthy earl's feet, but not her. And though she raises Whit's hackles each time they meet, there is something about Mirabelle that keeps him coming back.

Maybe it's her intelligence, her seeing them as equals or even that she once broke his nose. Whatever it is, Whit finds that kissing her sassy mouth is quite a bit of fun. As their families subtly and not so gently push them together, Whit and Mirabelle realize they might have an opportunity for happiness if they just face their destiny.
