When Adversaries Clash, Mischief Ignites Passion...
If it hadn't been for the crazy rumors, Lily Teagarden would never have approached her neighbor, Hal, Viscount Roxham—the careless rogue who broke her fledgling heart. But strange noises and lights on his property are causing serious problems for her, and she needs his help.
Trouble is oh-so-diverting for Viscount Roxham, and what could be more amusing than investigating what's plaguing his prim, beautiful neighbor—haunted sheep, of all things. Every time he seems to make progress, though, she throws mischief in his path, and his attraction to her is becoming extremely distracting...too bad Lily's the only woman in England who doesn't think he's Lord Perfect.
Review: Parts of this book really went slow for me. I mean really slow. I'm generally all about character and setting. I love the story to feel real to me, to feel as though I'm watching it on the big screen (which would happen to just be in my mind). However, I found myself really disliking the characters. Especially Lily.
I really found myself feeling sorry for Hal and Lily's unfairness about almost everything.
