    1 thought on “An Honorable Wish

    1. I can now confirm I like a lot Eileen Richards' style. It's very fluid and natural. Moreover she can really create catching and engaging plots; she sets up stories like the ones I love; those where the heroes don't necessarily play the too navigated, almost untouchable and cynical part, as if a man can be attractive only if he runs from feelings and doesn't want to commit; clearly I don't mind that kind, lets be honest, I wouldn't be human otherwise, but I do adore when a hero is sweet, caring, [...]

    2. An enchanting sequel to An Unexpected Wish. In this installment we see the man Tony has grown up to be. He has given up his gambling and fast living in London to come home and settle down. He has also realised that he has feelings for Juliet. Their romance begins in a heady, blissful way but the path to true love rarely runs smoothly and the pair have to overcome personal fears, secrets, and lies to finally come full circle to love, forgive, and trust in each other.I received a copy in exchange [...]

    3. This is a lovely story of two people who think they know each other well, but are they in for a surprise. Juliet is a young and determined to help her neighbors and friends from being evicted off their land by a steward that fancies himself above everyone and thinks Juliet should marry him. Along come her brother in law who she had a crush on when whe was younger. Tony has always stayed in London gambling and just doing whatever he wanted. One night he wins an estate from a gentleman who was des [...]

    4. I loved this book even more than the one before. Eileen Richards expands upon the wonderful world and characters that she previously created with excellent character development, beautifully writen scenery, and a storyline that thoroughly captivates and engages the reader. It's a story of young love at its best and worst. I can't wait to read more in this series. I cannot recommend this book enough to anyone who enjoys historiical romance. It stands alone well on its own; you don't have to read [...]

    5. I finished this book on November 15, 2015, received an ARC for an honest review.An Honorable Wish by Eileen Richards is part 2 of her series, A Lady's Wish. This book picks up where book 1, An Unexpected wish ended. In the first book we read about how Anne married Nathaniel Matthews, the oldest brother, and now in this book we read about Tony the youngest brother and what has happened with him!He has just returned from town after winning an estate in a poker game but does not want anyone to know [...]

    6. This was a decent read, although I will admit to skimming over the last third because I could see it was playing out as a needless misunderstanding between H/h that resulted in our heroine refusing to even consider forgiving the hero for endless pages and pages. And while I can admire the writing for the most part, there are some absolutely ridiculous plot whoppers in here that really take away from the enjoyment of a realistic story. Case(s) in point: Tony, who has for years been a dissolute ra [...]

    7. Tony Matthews has won the estate of George Chelsworth in a card game. Tony’s father was a gambler who lost a fortune and while Tony enjoys it as well, he knows he does not want to become like his father. His older brother, Nathaniel, is married to Anne and has a child. Tony knows his brother is going to be angry that he has gambled at all. He doesn’t want to be known as a gambler. He wants a respectable life instead. For that reason, he has offered a fair price for the estate to the loser an [...]

    8. Thanks for the free ARC Copy. This is a new author for me and I LOVED the book.Normally, I find myself scanning and skipping paragraphs in books -- well -- NOT this one. It kept my attention from the beginning. That doesn't happen very often.This is the second book in the 'A Lady's Wish' series I'm assuming that there will be three books -- one for each of the sisters. This one is so good, that I intend to go back and read the first book (Anne's story) and will anxiously await the next book (Sop [...]

    9. For years, Tony Matthews has spent time in London’s most notorious gambling dens. A fact that disgusts his elder brother given their family history of their father’s near ruin and struggle to bring some manner of honor back to the family. It took one winning night of play for Tony to realize just how low he’d fallen, when his gambling ruined another’s life. It was time to go home and make amends. Tony planned to settle down and marry hoping his long time friend Juliet Townsend would acce [...]

    10. WARNING: This book does contain scenes of a graphic sexual nature. If this is not something you wish to read, they can be easily skipped without losing important plot lines. This was one of those stories that kept me up reading well into the night. I felt as though the characters were not only well developed, but the story itself was so engaging and different than those I've read before. In the other stories that I have read, gambling was almost treated as a badge of honor - if you took another [...]

    11. I am starting to like Eileen Richards writing style. This book felt more like a traditional historical romance book and I enjoyed it more than I did with An Unexpected Wish. Sophia is still annoying and maybe even more than she was in AUW. I don't know how I will manage to read her book. I hope Ian will manage to make her more torelable. Juliet was nice for most of the book, especially considering that she is a bookworm who likes to read steamy books. In the late book she became a little irritat [...]

    12. Sadly, everything I disliked about the first book in the series was magnified in the second. For a book with "honorable" in the title, there sure were a lot of bad, stupid, dangerous, dishonorable choices being made. Again, I'm no prude, but premarital sex in a historical romance just does not sit right with me. I can't empathize with characters who act so counter to the moral code of their time, exposing themselves to ridicule and very real danger. This book also had enough silly little interna [...]
