What makes a man fall in love? The Book of Love holds the answer, or so Poppy Farthingale believes... 

Poppy Farthingale has made a pact with her two best friends to use The Book of Love to find true love. How else will Nathaniel Sherbourne, Earl of Welles, ever notice her? With a small dowry and no prominent lineage, Nathaniel will never consider her a suitable wife, especially when her competition is a beautiful duke’s daughter who has already been declared an Incomparable. Poppy has four days to win his heart, but with time running out and her rival about to attend a weekend party at Nathaniel’s country home, is all hope lost? 

Nathaniel Sherbourne, Earl of Welles, is a man whose heart has been bruised by the ravages of war. He is in no rush to marry, for he’s a wealthy and titled bachelor with debutantes aplenty eager to gain his notice. In any event, he has a blackmail scheme to unravel before he can turn his mind to more romantic ventures. But his sister’s shy friend, Poppy Farthingale, is suddenly capturing his attention. She’s toting around The Book of Love, and he’s promised to help her find a suitable match. 

But is it possible that he, in fact, is the right man for Poppy?


Nathaniel Sherbourne, the Earl of Welles is feeling strangely nervous.  His sister and her friends have got a book that is causing mischief. It's called the "Book of Love".  It's already caused the downfall into marriage of one of his best friends.  Now it looks like it's his turn to be the test frog.  He's got far too much on his mind to get caught up in another drama. 
Miss Poppy Farthingale is excited to have her turn with the book.  She is a shy and very innocent young lady so she needs someone she can trust to be her test frog.  She's known Nathaniel since she was a child,  so she knows he will never hurt her. 
This is a fun read full of mischief and emotion. Secrets have a way of coming to haunt us when we least want them.  This is the second book in the series and I can't wait to read the next. 
Great fun,  I loved it. 


Meara Platt is happily married to her Russell Crowe look-alike husband, and they have two terrific children. She lives in one of the many great towns on Long Island, New York, and loves it, except for the traffic. She has traveled extensively, occasionally lectures and finds time to write. Her favorite place in all the world is England’s Lake District, which may not come as a surprise since many of her stories are set in that idyllic landscape, including her Romance Writers of America Golden Heart award winning story.
