A Lady's Favor by Josi S. Kilpack {Review}

A Lady's Favor by Josi S. Kilpack
Kindle Edition, 76 pages
Published March 21st 2016 by Shadow Mountain
Lord Strapshire is the most-eligible bachelor in town, and he has set his sights on the lovely Bianca Davidson. It’s too bad that Bianca finds him to be an insufferable boor. In order to deflect his attention, Bianca plans to ask Mathew Hensley to pretend to court her. The problem is, Bianca hasn’t spoken to Mr. Hensley since they were both involved in a particularly embarrassing incident years before. But he owes her a favor, and Mr. Hensley might be Bianca’s only hope.
My Review: 5 Stars
Have you ever noticed that sometimes the really popular, good-looking people become less so, when you get to know them and they're totally a fop? That's exactly what happens in A Lady's Favor. Lord Strapshire is very conceited and is determined to win Bianca over. She can't stand him and devises a brilliant plan to dissuade him. She decides to ask her neighbor, Mathew, to court her until Strapshire disappears. 

I love a little mystery in a story and "the Incident" is referred to in a vague way many times. It isn't until later on in the story when that embarrassing encounter is revealed in full--an encounter involving Bianca and Mathew and which is the reason why they haven't spoken in years. I also love a good, clean romance, emerging feelings, and encounters that leave me flying through the pages--desperately wanting to see what happens, but not wanting it to end. This is a short and satisfying read!

Content: mild romance. Clean!
