The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy

Avon. (Smythe-Smith Quartet, Bk. 4). Feb. 2015. 384p. ISBN 9780062072948. pap. $7.99; ebk. ISBN 9780062072955. HISTORICAL ROMANCE
There's nothing like a hero with a secret to intrigue readers—and there's nothing that annoys a heroine more, especially when she has no idea what it is or how it will affect her until it's too late. But Iris Smythe-Smith is more than up to the challenge, and when she is compromised, quickly wed, and whisked off to Yorkshire by Sir Richard Kenworthy, she soon sorts things out with the help of a most observant young lady. A deceptively fragile-looking heroine and a desperate hero caught on the horns of a true dilemma find love despite their rocky beginnings and a serious deception.
VERDICT Witty, sexy, and often quite funny, Quinn's final visit with the Smythe-Smith clan (or is it?) is another fan-pleasing romp that has the added bonus of redeeming a weak and totally unsympathetic hero; a heartwarming story that won't disappoint. Quinn (The Sum of All Kisses) lives in the Pacific Northwest.
