Lady Francesca Cecilia Epping`s fury knows no bounds. Brixton Smythe-Medway, in a fit of stupidity, and inebriation, bet his friends that he would not marry until he was 50 and his chosen bride would definitely not be mousy Fanny Epping. Unbeknownst to Brix, the friendly, private, wager has been recorded in White`s betting book and has become the talk of the ton.
Fanny has been Brix`s faithful champion, good friend, and secret admirer since they were twelve years old. The idea that he would be so thoughtless of the repercussions this bet would have on Fanny `s reputation has Fanny enraged and out for retribution. She means to make Brix pay for this humiliation and casts the gauntlet at his feet – and seals their fate with a kiss.
The vivacious, spirited and attractive Fanny who confronts him with a wager of her own intrigues Brix. When did his mousy acolyte turn into a sensual beauty? A proud Brix, fully aware of the ton`s close scrutiny, is unwilling to lose either bet. He is determined to fight the desire to pull her into his arms and kiss her endlessly. However, the green-eyed monster rears his head when Brix spies a fashionable Fanny on another man’s arm.
Margaret Moore’s Kiss Me Again, the follow up to Kiss Me Quick is full of witty characters in a splendidly described setting. Be warned you will find yourself struck with the urge to find the prequel and read it as fast as you can. I know I did. In spite of Brix`s periods childish selfishness in the first half of the book, he redeems himself quite handsomely by the end. Although this book can easily stand on its own, readers would benefit from more background on the relationships between the characters.
Curl up in a comfy chair with a spot of tea and enjoy this charming Regency romp and the cast of truly appealing characters who live in it.
