Exquisite trouble . . .
A woman of pristine breeding, Lady Rosalind Devine is also an unrepentant meddler and snoop— which is why her brother refuses to leave her to her own devices while on his wedding trip. But Rosalind will not make things easy for any unseen, unwanted “nursemaid”—and vows to use her considerable wiles to expose her mystery guardian.
Nicholas Kincaid, the Marquess of Winterbourne, agreed to secretly guard his friend’s spoiled, stubborn sister, though her infuriating penchant for mischief is causing him to question his decision. Though bound by the rules of society—and friendship— Rosalind’s spirit and sensuality have sparked a fierce desire in Nicholas to play a very different role in her life, one that entails passion, ecstasy . . . and unavoidable scandal.

Summary Taken from Goodreads
Yani's Review:
I have to say I really really liked the first book in this series, it was kind of like the Bachelor meets historical romance. I enjoyed this book as well, but was expecting so much more from it, because of how much I liked Rosalind as a secondary character. She was still an awesome character no doubt, actually Olivia's characters are all some of my favorites, but I felt like the plot didn't have as much romance as I wanted. I wasn't really buying it.

And the ending felt a little rushed. I was like okay this happens and obviously is meant to keep them apart a little longer, till feelings are sorted, but then all of a sudden, everyone understand each other, they are in love and we are done!

Overall though, it was an awesome journey, and like Olivia's other work (which I HIGHLY recommend but have not reviewed), it was witty, sexy, and just plain delightful.

Plot: 4/5
Writing Style: 4/5
Uniqueness: 3/5
Characters: 3/5
