Review: How to Play the Game of Love (Ladies of Passion #1) by Harmony Williams

How to Play the Game of Love (Ladies of Passion, #1)


He’s everything she thinks she doesn’t want.

When Miss Rose Wellesley’s father threatens an arranged marriage, she knows she'd better settle on a choice quickly or end up having no say in who she marries. Fortunately, she's garnered a rare invitation to Lady Dunlop's "Week of Love" house party, an annual affair notorious for matchmaking. Her plans to expedite a proposal would go smoothly if not for the brash younger sister she must chaperone, her outspoken, disagreeable best friend, and the bullish Lord Hartfell who seems determined to dog her every step.

Lord Hartfell embodies every last thing Rose dislikes in a man. He’s domineering, tenacious, argumentative, and a little too casual with his nudity for her tastes. Worst of all, Rose can't seem to get him—or his kisses—out of her mind.

Rose is determined to find a more appropriate husband, even if her heart disagrees with how unsuitable the stubborn lord is…


I loved this lighthearted novel. It's quite entertaining story, full of humour, intrigue, and romance. All the characters are amazing. I enjoyed reading it a lot, in fact I read it in one sitting, simply couldn't put it down once I started.

Rose wants to fall in love before she marries. She has rejected many suitors and her father is getting tired of her antics. So now she has been given a warning, either she accepts marriage proposal from one of many young men who have already proposed to her or else her father will arrange a marriage for her. Rose will not let him do that so it's up to her to find love as soon as possible. In fact she even has a man in sight. Little does she know that there is someone who has been watching her too.

Lord Hartfell might not believe in love but he must admit that there is something about Miss Rose that he simply cannot overlook or ignore. Since the moment he set eyes on her he wants to spent more time with her, getting to know her is quite fun actually. She may pose like a proper lady but the truth is that she is wild. He likes that. So no matter how much Rose wants him to leave her alone he simply can't do that...
It's an interesting historical fiction which I loved reading. I'd recommend it to all romance readers.
