The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy (Smythe-Smith Quartet #4) By: Julia Quinn
Sir Richard Kenworthy has less than a month to find a bride. He knows he can’t be too picky, but when he sees Iris Smythe-Smith hiding behind her cello at her family’s infamous musicale, he thinks he might have struck gold. She’s the type of girl you don’t notice until the second—or third—look, but there’s something about her, something simmering under the surface, and he knows she’s the one. Iris Smythe–Smith is used to being underestimated. With her pale hair and quiet, sly wit she tends to blend into the background, and she likes it that way. So when Richard Kenworthy demands an introduction, she is suspicious. He flirts, he charms, he gives every impression of a man falling in love, but she can’t quite believe it’s all true. When his proposal of marriage turns into a compromising position that forces the issue, she can’t help thinking that he’s hiding something . . . even as her heart tells her to say yes.
Sir Richard and his sisters drove me a little crazy. I loved Iris, for the most part, she should have slapped some bitches, though.
Sir Richard figured out some completely ludircrous plan to save his sisters reputation and poor Iris was pulled in against her will. Thankfully they fell in love with each other and she was able to forgive him for being an idiot.
Seriously between Iris’s sister Daisy, and Sir Richards sisters, hardly a page went by where I didn’t want to beat someone to death. For the most part I liked the story a lot, but I just can’t overlook my desire to murder when I rate this title. Iris was the best part of the book and I feel slightly sad for her being saddled with such infuriating people.
