It all started with a silky pair or red knickers. Ellie knows they are scandalous and no one expects that from the very proper spinsterish Miss Ellie Bowman, but she has them anyway. Unfortunately a very mischievous cat keeps finding them and bringing them to his master, the man Ellie has been in love with since she was a child, Lord Edward, Ned. Seeing Ellie’s scandalous bloomers has had an odd effect on Ned, he can’t help imagining her in them…and nothing else. But he tries to push these thoughts out of his head and concentrate on finding himself a wife, after all he loves Ellie as a close friend would…right?I really enjoyed this book, it contained two things that is almost always guaranteed to make me like a book, a plain Jane heroine and humour. The humour was helped along by a very naughty cat named Sir Reginald and a pair of red silk bloomers two very unusual but entertaining plot devices.

The romance in this is fun and a little sneaky with Ned’s mother a famous matchmaker nicknamed the Duchess of Love tries to pair of all the guests in her house party, especially Ned, her middle son, and Ellie. Although it was a little slow as Ned’s thick male mind takes a while to realize that Ellie may be the woman for him, it was still entertaining to read, especially as there were a few secondary romances going on as well.

I would recommend this book, the characters were all very likable, the romance was sweet and it made me laugh. I know can’t wait to read the next book in the series.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
