Gentlemen Prefer Mischief by Emily Greenwood

Gentlemen Prefer Mischief by Emily Greenwood.

This is book 2 in the Mischief series.

Lily Teagarden has got to do something about the mysterious lights that keep showing up in the local woods as it is interfering with her business. When she finds out that her neighbor, Viscount Roxham, is finally home she goes to him for help.

Roxham is intrigued by the woman that Lily has become. He knew that Lily had a crush on him when she was younger and at one point had taken her journal. He uses this to to tease Lily out of her seriousness.

Roxham agrees to help Lily solve the mystery. When she finds out who the fiend is, a friend in need, she sabotages Roxham's efforts.  He then retaliates by telling Lily that he will return the journal for the identity of the fiend.

The mischief that Lily instigates intrigues Roxham and he uses his rakish ways to seduce her. Will they find the love that both of them secretly want?

I fell in love with Roxham during Greenwood's first novel, A Little Night Mischief and couldn't wait to see how his story unfolded. The banter between Roxham and Lily had me laughing out loud. Lily did so many things to keep Roxham from finding out who the fiend was that I couldn't wait to she what she would do next.  I like that Greenwood makes you fall in love with the secondary characters in her stories and keeps you wanting more.  Her next book features the Earl of Ivorwood.  I do hope that Roxham's sister gets her own story too!

You can get this book at Amazon and Barnes & Noble
Thanks to NetGalley and Sourcebooks for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.
