How To Ruin Your Reputation In 10 Days, by Harmony Williams. Historical Romance Release, ARC Review & Giveaway

Meet the Author:

Harmony Williams has been living vicariously in Regency-era England since she discovered Jane Austen. Since time machines don’t yet exist, she’s had to make do with books—fictional and non-fictional. On the rare occasion she doesn’t have her nose stuck in a book, she likes to drink tea and spend time with her 90-lb lapdog. A feminist, she writes stories about strong women and the men who support them as equals.

About the Book:

In 1814 London, England, a lady is defined as a demure, delicate flower. Miss Francine Annesley is not that lady. If men were like plants, she would have a garden of admirers to choose from instead of the thorn in her side since childhood, Julian Beckwith. But she would make an even worse nun than she does a lady, which will be her fate if she can't dig up a husband before the Season ends. However, Julian is not an option.
With only ten short days left in the Season, Francine doesn't have time to waste on petty squabbles or knee-weakening kisses, even if Julian's offer to fulfill her every wish rouses her curiosity. It seems men are more complicated than plants. Too bad love bloomed at the most inconvenient of times...

Lady Francine Annesley is a botanist.  She is happiest working in the hot house with her plants.  Unfortunately her father has decided it's time she got married.  She has never been popular with the "ton" and never tried to be. 
Julian  Beckwith is delighted to meet up with his childhood friend.  They had not seen each other in years, but corresponded regularly until a few months ago.  He is only visiting London for a short while before he takes on his commitments. He seems to spend his time rescuing Francine from mishaps. 
Get the tissues out when you settle in to read this.  Our heroine has a very upsetting time in this story. It doesn't matter how intelligent she is, there are some things that are out of her control.  Our hero is normally a honourable man and will suffer from his conscience.  There is also quite a bit of fun with the escapades her friend Mary gets her into.  I have a feeling she may be the heroine in a future book.  I look forward to reading it. 
I loved this one.
