to marry her brother, Augustine, and she has made threats toward Honor, her mother and her sisters Their mother is suffering from memory loss, and with their step father sick and soon to die, they know that their lives are about to change, and that they must take action So Honor comes up with a plan, she will convince George Easton, a scoundrel, to try to seduce her brothers fianc e George Easton, is a third son, and despite his parentage, he is poor, and has devoted all of his funds toward a shipping endeavor, but if he loses that ship, he will lose everything, except what he makes at the gaming tables Which is where he first meets Honor Cabot Honor is unlike any other woman he has ever known, she is daring and beautiful and knows just how to get him to cooperate He realizes that life will never be easy with her at the helm, but he also knows he can t get her out of his mind But George has nothing to give Honor, except his name and a few hundred pounds, will Honor be able to give up her life of parties and gowns and financial security to be with the man she loves..The Hero George Easton, knows his place in society and it s toward the bottom He doesn t have high standing, considering the fact that he has small funds, one town house, and supports himself at the gaming tables George Easton is a bastard, and as such is only considered good for a few things and that isn t a place in high society George Easton is a character I didn t understand that much I really liked him, and at first he seems very practical and determined, but he goes along with Honor s illogical ploys, and it just didn t fit with him but I figure men act silly when a beautiful woman is involved and tend not to act like their logical selves But what I did like about George was his drive to succeed, even when he makes reckless actions, his character is written in such a way that you just can t help but like him.The Heroine Honor is in a bad situation, and even though she is the least practical person, she is determined to do what it takes to protect her family from a woman that would kick them to Europe or the America s just to get them out of the way You see honor s love and drive to protect those she loves even in the most ridiculous ways that she goes about it But even though she could seem very immature at times, and silly, I felt respect for her character In the story we are put in her mind , and we what drives her, and she does have good intentions, and despite everything I loved that about her The way she loves her family and would do anything for them except get married We see how she likes to do things the hard way but a very entertaining way though.Plot and Story Line Trouble With Honor is the first book and what a fun romance this was I had read mixed reviews and ratings about this one, but I like Julia London, and it was a cheap audio book, so I thought it would be good to give it a chance and I did At first I will admit the story seemed to drag a bit, but one aspect I have noticed about Julia London s book you have to give them some time before you get into it and boy am I glad that I stuck with this one, because I adored this story and the narrator is just fabumous I have listened to other books she has narrated and she is very talented is accents and in portraying the characterizations There is one thing I just loved about this book was how George and Honor clicked together They fit perfectly especially in moments that they don t realize it One of my favorite aspects of this story was the way the romance develops because it was different This pair first meets at the gaming tables, and there is some fiery sparks, but somehow those sparks don t die despite their difference in positions What was great about this pair, was how they work hand in hand in such a harmonious way, and especially the first half of the story they don t see how well they do together I love that it creeps up on them, and before they realize it they fall hard for each other What really got to me was the last part of the story don t worry I won t reveal anything but it got me emotionally involved, and I so wanted these two to find a way to be together because they deserved it and they need each other And they do fight for each other, and even if you have reservations about the heroine by the end of the book your view changes drastically it did for me anyway, I love how she fights for love and for what she really wants, and not bow to society s dictates This is a romance that slowly won my heart over, in a very dramatic way of course but nonetheless it happened and I am so thrilled to have discovered this book and I can t wait to listen to Grace s story, especially when we get a little tease about her at the end.The CoverThere are two covers for this book, the newer one matches the series so I put that one up, because I like the couple poses and I love this one I love her dress, it s so pretty and elegant, and I love the pose here, with is hand on her neck shivers down the spine how I love that.Overall View The Trouble With Honor is a story that will surprise, shock and delight you from beginning to end With its unique characters, delectable plot, sensational romance, a fun and entertaining story that will captivate you A LIVELY REGENCY ROMANCE Isn t Julia London, like, a super duper bestselling author You wouldn t

A very big thank you to Netgalley and Harlequin HQN for providing me with an ARC of this book I know Julia Landon to be a bestselling historical romance author and have shelved her books but The Trouble With Honor is my very first read from this author and definitely do not regret requesting it from Netgalley.The voice of the characters and style of writing took some getting used to at first, but after that I was gobbling every single word It was that delicious.I truly enjoyed reading about A very big thank you to Netgalley and Harlequin HQN for providing me with an ARC of this book I know

Netgalley.The voice of the characters and style of writing took some getting used to at first, but after that I was gobbling every single word It was that delicious.I truly enjoyed reading about Honor and her sisters They were so well written because readers can already see the individuality of each of the sisters Before the end of the story, I was already so eager for Grace s the second Cabot sister story.Honor and George s scenes were just great I really looked forward to their meetings, aside from the sisters of course This story doesn t really have an antagonist or a villain I really detested Monica at first, but towards the end, she wasn t all that bad after all.All in all, The Trouble With Honor is a highly recommended HR read Two thumbs up d b Not entirely repulsively tedious, but waythan is tolerable.The heroine was a manipulative, selfish skank, which I can respect, but the hero was too much of a Sir Doormat He barely made Honor suffer after she got an attack of feelz and didn t think she was entitled to keep using him and have a free pass to kick him in the teeth.I like my torturous shenanigans to be a two way street When they re lopsided in favor of one of the characters, I get cranky and start side eyeing that shit hard.I Not entirely repulsively tedious, but waythan is tolerable.The heroine was a manipulative, selfish skank, which I can respect, but the

reading it sigh Additional note My first audiobook by Rosalyn Landor Kudos that she puts so much heart into what must be tedious drivel in book after book after book Her romance audiography is

Wicked or Courtney Milan s Once Upon a Marquess.Just don t read this book.I don t care about characters being likable or decent, I just want characters to be well written and at the very least, not petty brats In the historical romance genre, I generally have a VERY high tolerance for both heroines and heroes, where others may call heroines naive or stupid or heroes being assholes a majority of them usually are, let s be real , I usually tend to give heroines the benefit of the doubt at least that they are the product of their era So this is TRULY a first for me that I ve come to truly dislike, probably hate, a heroine in a historical romance novel Honor Cabot is the stepdaughter of the Earl of Beckington along with her 3 other younger sisters Grace, Prudence and Mercy Her mother is suffering from dementia and the Earl is sickly Honor s stepbrother, Augustine, the heir, is engaged to Monica Hargrove, and Honor believes that Monica will throw her, her sisters and mother out when she marries Augustine Honor believes this because of a petty feud between the two girls since they were children, where their dance instructor favored Monica over Honor Monica dislikes Honor because she feels like Honor has everything and is popular, pretty and charming It is honestly the most petty, frivolous, stupid feud ever Monica isn t so bad actually, because she is never really that developed a character, but we do get enough on her that we know she isn t the monster Honor built her up in her head to be So Honor concocts a truly stupid and downright cruel plan to divert Monica away from marrying her stepbrother by getting the hero George Easton to perhaps lure her away Never mind that the plan is pretty stupid, doesn t solve anything long term and will probably fail, it is born out of such selfish, cowardly and cruel reasons 1 Augustine, while not the brightest bulb, is actually kind to Honor and her sisters2 Augustine and Monica truly care for each other 3 Why couldn t Honor speak to Augustine about her fears and talk to him like a functioning, normal adult It is not like Augustine is an unreasonable monster Now Honor s sister Grace, says that one of the ways in which they can continue to care for their mother properly is if they marry well and then their husbands would take care of their sisters and mother Honor doesn t want to do this I can understand this bit she doesn t want to lose her one shred of freedom by becoming a wife But at the same time, you aren t that convinced about this because Honor is farfocused on plotting against Monica as well as flouncing around in her dresses and spitefully buying bonnets Monica wants George, the hero, points out that Honor just wants to upkeep her privileged lifestyle, and honestly I don t think he s that far off I never really see Honor doing any hands on work to care for her mother Grace seems to be the only one giving a shit about their mother This is all in the text by the way, I was wondering if I was being too hard on Honor, so I made the point of highlighting passages for myself that showed that Grace was the only one who actually looks out for their mother.So is Honor scheming out of desperate filial piety towards her mother No shit she is not What is happening here is a bitchy, spiteful little plan Never mind that I don t really care about Monica because she s only marginally less petty than Honor We KNOW that Monica cares about Augustine and wants to marry him and vice versa It s pretty gross for a sister to mess with her brother s life like that for such selfish reasons Her only option is not only to marry and lose her freedom There were other things she could have tried to do before jumping down this path Aside from Honor s dreadful personality and lack of character or principles, or common sense, for that matter, she and George also have no romantic chemistry and there is no real development or pacing to their relationship It is very poorly developed and written They have plenty of sexual chemistry, and they have very sexy scenes on balconies and other semi public places that are very hot, but because they lack romantic chemistry, none of these scenes truly hold any impact or carry any weight in the development of their relationship George is also very boring and uninteresting Conceptually, he seems to be a gem of a historical romance hero, one where you can make him all intense and brooding as he is the bastard son of a Duke and has a massive chip on his shoulder because society shuns him Also, even though Honor is but a stepdaughter of an Earl and cannot hope to marry first sons, she is also of the ton and George has angst that she is above him Typical stuff, but still, can be mined for emotional angst right No This never happens George whines a little here and there in his head about how he can never have Honor, that he can never escape from the shadow of his past, but that s pretty much where it stays He is a stagnant character And even up to the end of the book he keeps going on and on and on about how no one would let them marry because of his status Does he try to fight for their love No At least I will give Honor that she fights with him for their love Oh, and he gambles Gambling is one of the worst, most deplorable vices to me It ruins lives and families and meanwhile towards the end of the book, George gambles, IN FRUSTRATION, to win her back Like that has EVER worked Also, one of his first encounters with Honor, he pretty much feels her up without permission and that is just gross and wrong Julia London keeps going on and on about how the two of them are so perfect for each other because they are bold , unafraid , unapologetic , brave , risk taking and that they don t care what society thinks about them but I don t think she knows what all that really means Honor is not bold or brave just because she goes around making out with men at public places or playing cards like a man What she is doing is really very selfish, squandering money she could have saved to help her mother, while also risking her sisters reputations and ruining their chances and prospects Prudence and Mercy are not even yet out in society Oh and another thing besides the fact that Mercy has very macabre tendencies and Prudence is very proper, we also never really get a sense of who the other sisters are, certainly not who Grace is even though Grace is the sister that features most, nor do we get the sense of sisterhood or familial relationship between the sisters or their mother After all this, I actually felt that George and Honor were perfect for each other, even if I couldn t tell at all that they re in love They re both uninteresting, mean spirited, selfish, silly people that deserve each other
