Publisher Description

All she wanted was a kiss…

What she got, was fiery passion…

Emily Howard knows she is destined to be a spinster. She has accepted this fate, but that doesn't stop her from wanting to experience kissing. What she doesn't expect, is for Griffin Crawford, the handsomest man in the world, to do the honors. Or for all her female relations to discover her in his embrace. Naturally, marriage is instantly mentioned, but since Emily knows this is not what Griffin wants, she tries to escape him, her family and the ensuing scandal.

When Emily flees the Camberly ball in the wake of their kiss, Griffin goes in pursuit. He will not allow his sister-in-law's determined friend to risk her safety for any reason. And risk it she will if she means to return to her countryside home by herself. But the longer he remains in her company, the more he is tempted to kiss her again. If only he could risk falling in love and remain in England forever.

Good story

I had a hard time getting started but that was probably my busy life at the time. I ended up reading well into the night.

To Find Love at Last

The author certainly teases us in this book about the long, long road to a happy ending. If you like books about will he or won’t she, this one is for you. It’s a sweet treatise and oh so enjoyable! I loved the two main characters, Griffin and Emily and how they interacted with the others in the story. Each one contributed to the story as a whole and by the end you’ll be enthralled as I was. Oh... the epilogue was the cherry on top!

Never been kissed

She’s looking for her first kiss.

Miss Emily Howard is firmly on the shelf at 26 and a failed engagement. But there is one thing she would like. Her first kiss.

Griffin Crawford is the brother of a duke. He’s a clockmaker who lives in Vienna but us back home in England. He bears a scar on his face from a folly with a married woman. He doesn’t want to get married, but he does want to kiss Emily. And does so and they are immediately caught.

Emily runs off and Griffin chases after her.
I enjoyed how irate he was when Emily brushed off his skills and didn’t want to force him to marry her.
The more she down played his ability, the more his ego was dented.

They end up on a road trip and are frank and communicate easily. But Griffin unbeknownst to him, was instrumental in the demise of Emily’s previous engagement.

Highly recommend.
