His childhood nemesis…is the woman he can’t resist!

Chaperoning Charity Brookes while she’s on a singing tour should be easy for Griffith Philpot—he’s spent his whole life sparring with her over her flighty ways!

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

I am so pleased to be involved in the Publication Day Push for Virginia Heath’s latest novel: How Not to Chaperon a Lady. This is the 3rd book in The Talk of the Beau Monde series and I have adored seeing Regency London via the streets of Bloomsbury. I would wholeheartedly recommend reading all the books in the series in order as quite frankly they are such a treat.

Once again the author Virginia Heath has given her readers a great partnership within the lead characters and this one has been sparring with each other for nearly two decades since when they met as children.

Charity Brookes is the youngest daughter and the most vivacious, rebellious, strong-willed, ambitious of the 3 but she is also generous, hardworking and thoughtful. With highly successful parents and sisters Charity is trying to make her own distinctive mark on the world and her forte is operatic singing. When Charity’s latest show takes her on tour around theatres in the north long time family friend Griff takes the role of chaperon. Griff takes this role very seriously as he knows and has read about Charity’s antics in the society press so he aims to keep her on the right path as much for his own sanity as Griff cares for Charity, more than he acknowledges.

Charity and Griff have bickered since they were children but there’s a friendly banter beneath it all and this closeness whilst away on tour gives them the chance to learn more about each other. There’s also the matter of the magnetic pull between them whether this is through annoyance or something else?

Emotions between them have been building up over the years and when this results in an explosion of feelings that take them both by surprise Charity and Griff have reached a hurdle in their relationship that now appears higher to climb over.

I really enjoyed this Regency romance by Virginia Heath that was filled with a bubbling chemistry between two main characters that fought hard to accept. The banter between them was perfect and Charity and Griff’s personalities blended well with the rest of the family. There is one particular scene when the men of the family take centre stage and it’s both funny and charming.

Gorgeous, romantic, funny and irresistible.

Author Bio – When Virginia Heath was a little girl it took her ages to fall asleep, so she made up stories in her head to help pass the time while she was staring at the ceiling. As she got older, the stories became more complicated, sometimes taking weeks to get to the happy ending. Then one day, she decided to embrace the insomnia and start writing them down. Twenty books and two Romantic Novel of the Year Award nominations later, and it still takes her forever to fall asleep.
