SUMMARY The Gentle Art of Fortune Hunting

As the grumpy baronet and the glib fortune hunter start to understand each other they also find themselves starting to care than either of them thought possible But Robin's cheated and lied and let people down for money Can a professional rogue earn an honest happy ever after. update 1201 So I had a big book hangover and could not get it out of my so I had to re read it I forgot to mention how funny and witty the dialogue are The relationships between the two MCs and their siblings is also great and I did not emphasize that enough Needless to say I highly recommend it45 rounded up because this was lovely This book was slightly different from other books by this author that s I have read granted I ve only read 7 because there is no investigation There is a mystery surrounding the characters background but it s not uite the same I really loved both characters I was rooting for them individually and as a couple The dialogues were great and a few scenes will stay with me for a long time I love how they negotiated their relationship the level of communication was great no miscommunication here It was still angsty but in a way that felt earned no contrived angst which is ideal really I really enjoyed the themes discussed and how they were handled what marriage and love are or should be money and social class This book was wonderful I only wish we had one scene view spoiler Hart express interest at being fucked by Robin which would have been his first time but it is not brought up again I wanted to see that but that s a small thing Also we are told that Robin is not his real name but we are not told what is Finally I wish we had seen of the courtship between Marianne and her two male interests but I get that it is not her story so since we don t have her POV I get why it wasn t included That is really a small thing hide spoiler

By good looks or fooled by false charm He’s sure Robin is a liar a fortune hunter a card sharp and a heartless greedy fraud and he’ll protect his niece whatever it takesThen just when Hart thinks he has Robin The Gentle PDF or at his mercy things take a sharp left turn And. 2020 Winter Bingo SnowInLoveBingo Last Book Acuired By the time the Season began plenty of people would recognise the well mannered Loxleighs friendly but not encroaching up from the country modest but so charming They would have dinner invitations They would find their way into parties They would slide into the notice of the lower Upper Ten Thousand without anyone uite knowing how they d got there And then the hunt would beginThis is fun I like KJC s angsty romantic suspense but regency romps are a better fit for my reading mood these days Tone wise it s closer to BAND SINISTER than the Will Darling Adventures This appears to be a standalone but I have hopes for Marianne s story she s my favorite character Robin a close secondI m a big fan of the other siblingrelative trope which means that MC1 Robin is courting a relative Alice of MC2 Hart In this case Hart is Alice s grumpy baronet step uncle Robin and his sister Marianne are lying about their unsavory origins and have come to London for the purpose of fortune hunting I was initially concerned that Alice was going to be a major plot conflict but thankfully this crinkle goes away uickly Hart is correctly suspicious that the Loxleighs are lying about their past and that Robin is only courting Alice for her secret dowry He s determined to expose their fraud and is FURIOUS at his attraction toward the card cheating Robin The enemies setup ended sooner than I expected the plot took an abrupt turn before the halfway mark but the new setup no spoilers really worked for meNot gonna lie watching Robin and Marianne hoodwink society was SO FUCKING SATISFYING It s a shame that they re not totally bankrupt of morals my internal chorus of eat the rich was LOUD All joking aside the discussion of fortune hunting and ethics is fascinating They re not doing anything wrong The Marriage Mart is a well mart Everyone hopes to better their station in society via marriage if we re looking at morals the majority of the aristocracy is contemptible in comparison to Robin and Marianne I adored how the book tackles issues of financial security morality and hypocrisy re the siblings scheme It s hard to talk about what I liked without spoilers see major plot point halfway through but THE GENTLE ART OF FORTUNE HUNTING is a perfect Regency romp to curl up to on a chilly winter night I could not stop smiling for most of this book this might be my fave KJC since PROPER ENGLISH Anyway go preorder itDisclaimer I received a free e ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review

    “Anything you want Whenever and wherever and especially however At your pleasure Starting now” How absolutely typical that the best pair of thighs he’d seen in years should be parcelled up with such a damned inflexible unaccommodating sceptical personality I loved this book almost as much as Robin loved Hart’s thighs It was the perfect escape and filled me with feels Fun witty sexy and romantic A light hearted romp but not at all s
