He was her target. She was his diversion. Falling in love was never something they wanted.

As a con woman who has spent her entire life fending for herself on the streets of London, Rose Wakefield knows how to scam a gentleman out of his money without ever getting caught. That’s until she knocks on the wrong earl’s door and is faced with Carver Ashburn Earl of Kensworth and not the notorious rake she thinks she is approaching.

Carver is a good man, but even a good man will not pass up an opportunity to escape his grief. What better way to avoid his feelings than to play into a con woman’s ruse and offer to marry her?

Things only grow more complicated when Carver sweeps Rose off to his family estate and circumstances force them both into continuing the ruse. Carver needs to protect his family, and Rose needs to protect herself—and her heart.

With so much set against them, will Rose and Carver have a chance at love and freedom? Or is the possibility of more heartache not worth the risk?

My Thoughts:
With this book, I've completed my Goodreads 2020 Challenge!  I set my goal at a realistic 26 books and am happy that I have met and will surpass that goal.

Now, onto what I thought of "To Con A Gentleman" my very first read by this author, Sarah Adams!

Within the first few chapters, I was actually laughing (quite literally) out loud!  I don't want to give too much away but there is a scene that involves a coach seat that was hilarious!

As always, I love Regency novels, especially romances. I knew as soon as I read the blurb for this book that it was one that I would enjoy.  The premise was unique.  The writing was inviting and captivating.

Carver had just the right amount of angst.  Rose had just the right amount of backbone.  They were perfect for each other.  Once, they moved past the the past and looked to the future.

I wondered how the author would tie in everything in the end and I was especially pleased.  The ending was wonderful :)

I downloaded this book from Kindle Unlimited and am very excited to say that I've already downloaded the next book in the series, "To Catch A Suitor".  I have some Christmassy books to read first for the HoHoHo Read-a-Thon that starts Thursday.  So many books, so little time!

Onto the next book!
