In For a Penny by @RoseLerner Review @samhainpub

In For a Penny
Release date: June 3, 2014
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance
Series: In for a Penny #1

Grand Passion…or epic disaster?

Lord Nevinstoke revels in acting the young wastrel, until his father is killed in a drunken duel. Never one to do anything halfway, Nev throws off his wild ways to shoulder a mountain of responsibility—and debt—vowing to marry a rich girl and act the respectable lord of the manor.

Manufacturing heiress Penelope Brown seems the perfect choice for a wife. She’s pretty, proper, and looking for a husband.

Determined to rise above her common birth, Penelope prides herself on her impeccable behavior and good sense. Grand Passion? Vulgar and melodramatic. Yes, agreeing to marry Nev was a rare moment of impulse, yet she’s sure they can build a good marriage based on companionship and mutual esteem.

But when they arrive at the manor, they’re overwhelmed with half-starved tenants, a menacing neighbor, and the family propensity for scandal. As the situation deteriorates, the newlyweds have nowhere to turn but to each other. To Penelope’s surprise, she begins to fervently hope that her first taste of Grand Passion in her husband’s arms won’t be her last.

Warning: Contains kisses in the breakfast room, account books in the bedroom...and murder in the garden. Featuring a heroine who’s used to settling, a hero who’s used to getting what he wants without trying, and a love for which they’ll both have to fight tooth and nail.

My Rating: 5 Roses

An absolutely charming and enjoyable historical romance, In for a Penny was a lovely read. I really liked it. I thought it was a sweet romance.

Penelope was a sensible, intelligent kind of heroine, which I found refreshing. She was understanding, though unwilling to be made a fool of. I thought she was great.

Nev was an absolute charmer. He was sweet, charismatic, and just adorable in general. And, when it came to the well-being of those in his care, he was willing to do anything. I thought it was perfect.

The romance was lovey. Penelope and Nev were perfect for each other. They started out with an amiable relationship and it was nice seeing that deepen as they dealt with their new life together. I thought they were great together.

The story was fast paced and really enjoyable. There were a few twists along the way and the ending was great.

In for a Penny was a delightful historical romance and I really liked it. Romance lovers, this is a book worth the read.
