And Then He Kissed Her by Laura Lee Guhrke
Historical Romance
ISBN 978-0-06-114360-1
Reviewed by Annmarie

Girl bachelor and secretary to publisher Viscount Marlowe, Emmaline Dove has a dream beyond buying gifts for her employer's latest paramour.  Emma wants to write etiquette books.  With more than one attempt refused by Harry, Viscount Marlowe, Emma has hopes that her latest offering will meet his approval.  When she discovers that Harry hasn't even read her books before turning them down, including her most recent submission, Emma becomes furious and quits her job.

Harry would prefer being skinned alive to being forced to read etiquette books and he's sure there is no place for them in the marketplace.  Astonished that his sedate secretary would leave his employ without notice, Harry finds that he has misjudged Miss Emmaline Dove.  Harry soon learns that there are people who enjoy Emma's etiquette lessons after she is hired by a rival publisher.  And that's not all he's misjudged.  Harry is shocked to discover there is nothing sedate about Emma at all.  In fact, in his arms, Emma is passionate, very passionate!

I made the mistake of attempting to read a few pages of And Then He Kissed Her before going to bed.  As the sun was beginning to rise, I happily finished this delicious love story.  I just loved the starchy Miss Emmaline Dove and the naughty Viscount Marlowe.  I loved watching the two fall in love.  I loved the time period And Then He Kissed Her is set in.  I loved the heat Emma and Harry create.  I loved the vivid details of the story, from the description of Emma's flat to Harry and Emma's trip to the chocolatier. I couldn't put this book down!

I found And Then He Kissed Her fresh, entertaining and truly delicious.  And Then He Kissed Her by Laura Lee Guhrke is a highly recommended read!
