Honor and her sisters are in dire circumstances. Her nemesis, is going to marry her brother, Augustine, and she has made threats toward Honor, her mother and her sisters. Their mother is suffering from memory loss, and with their step father sick and soon to die, they know that their lives are about to change, and that they must take action. So Honor comes up with a plan, she will convince George Easton, a scoundrel, to try to seduce her brothers fiancée. George Easton, is a third son, and despite his parentage, he is poor, and has devoted all of his funds toward a shipping endeavor, but if he loses that ship, he will lose everything, except what he makes at the gaming tables. Which is where he first meets Honor Cabot. Honor is unlike any other woman he has ever known, she is daring and beautiful and knows just how to get him to cooperate. He realizes that life will never be easy with her at the helm, but he also knows he can’t get her out of his mind. But George has nothing to give Honor, except his name and a few hundred pounds, will Honor be able to give up her life of parties and gowns and financial security to be with the man she loves..
George Easton, knows his place in society and it’s toward the bottom. He doesn’t have high standing, considering the fact that he has small funds, one town house, and supports himself at the gaming tables. George Easton is a bastard, and as such is only considered good for a few things…and that isn’t a place in high society. George Easton is a character I didn’t understand that much. I really liked him, and at first he seems very practical and determined, but he goes along with Honor’s illogical ploys, and it just didn’t fit with him…but I figure men act silly when a beautiful woman is involved and tend not to act like their logical selves. But what I did like about George was his drive to succeed, even when he makes reckless actions, his character is written in such a way that you just can’t help but like him.
Honor is in a bad situation, and even though she is the least practical person, she is determined to do what it takes to protect her family from a woman that would kick them to Europe or the America’s…just to get them out-of-the-way. You see honor’s love and drive to protect those she loves…even in the most ridiculous ways that she goes about it. But even though she could seem very immature at times, and silly, I felt respect for her character. In the story we are put in her mind more, and we what drives her, and she does have good intentions, and despite everything I loved that about her. The way she loves her family and would do anything for them except get married. We see how she likes to do things the hard way…but a very entertaining way though.
Plot and Story Line
Trouble With Honor is the first book…and what a fun romance this was. I had read mixed reviews and ratings about this one, but I like Julia London, and it was a cheap audio book, so I thought it would be good to give it a chance…and I did. At first I will admit the story seemed to drag a bit, but one aspect I have noticed about Julia London’s book you have to give them some time before you get into it and boy am I glad that I stuck with this one, because I adored this story and the narrator is just fabumous…I have listened to other books she has narrated and she is very talented is accents and in portraying the characterizations. There is one thing I just loved about this book…was how George and Honor clicked together. They fit perfectly especially in moments that they don’t realize it. One of my favorite aspects of this story was the way the romance develops because it was different. This pair first meets at the gaming tables, and there is some fiery sparks, but somehow those sparks don’t die despite their difference in positions. What was great about this pair, was how they work hand in hand in such a harmonious way, and especially the first half of the story they don’t see how well they do together. I love that it creeps up on them, and before they realize it…they fall hard for each other. What really got to me was the last part of the story (don’t worry I won’t reveal anything) but it got me emotionally involved, and I so wanted these two to find a way to be together…because they deserved it and they need each other. And they do fight for each other, and even if you have reservations about the heroine…by the end of the book your view changes drastically…it did for me anyway, I love how she fights for love and for what she really wants, and not bow to society’s dictates. This is a romance that slowly won my heart over, in a very dramatic way of course…but nonetheless it happened and I am so thrilled to have discovered this book and I can’t wait to listen to Grace’s story, especially when we get a little tease about her at the end.
There are two covers for this book, the newer one matches the series so I put that one up, because I like the couple poses…and I love this one. I love her dress, it’s so pretty and elegant, and I love the pose here, with is hand on her neck—*shivers down the spine* how I love that.
The Trouble With Honor is a story that will surprise, shock and delight you from beginning to end. With its unique characters, delectable plot, sensational romance, a fun and entertaining story that will captivate you!! A LIVELY REGENCY ROMANCE!!
Honor is the oldest of Cabot sisters and feels compelled to break the engagement of her older step-brother to Monica Hargrove, a girl who was once her best friend. Honor fears Monica is encouraging her step-brother to quickly marry and when his father dies, divest himself of his stepmother and her four girls as four girls and their dowries will quickly put a strain on his coffers. Honor's selection of a hero to help her is based on a very minor hold she believes she might have on him and the fact that while he's not really in society, she believes he wants to be.
The conflict between them: he doesn't want to distract Monica from her fiance and Honor's one-track solution to the problem keeps the story going and the reader wondering if they can resolve it.
I could understand her reasons for wanting to postpone the wedding - but really it seemed too mean and potentially hurtful to Augustine who seemed to genuinely love his stepsisters
I am not sure why I kept reading when I really detested Honor. It was probably because of George. He was great and tried to change her mind. He agrees to help her but the only one he seduces is Honor.
I have mixed feelings because while the story is well written and the love scenes are steamy - too many things are just flat out unbelievable. Like the bastard son of a prince having unprotected sex - repeatedly He didn't plan on marrying her but takes no precautions to prevent pregnancy? Really? Or like a debutante going to a gaming hell and not having her reputation ruined? Seriously?
I did like Monica. Loved that she was on to George from the start!!
I will read Grace's book and hope that she and her hero have a more believable - honorable story

Honor isn’t your usual sort of heroine - actually, she’s a little bit of a pain in the bum - but for some reason I couldn’t help but like her. I felt that she hid her true feelings and character behind her charming smile and flippant, rule-breaking demeanour. And I suppose that’s where my initial problem with this book started. I felt I didn’t ever get to uncover those true feelings or her true character. It was the same across the novel and the characters - we are teased that there is depth to these people, these feelings, these interactions - but we never get to actually witness or feel them. I was desperate for more. To make me believe what’s going on. But it didn’t happen.
I liked George, too. He was another slightly unusual character who I, surprisingly, found myself feeling heartily sorry for at times due to how members of the ton were treating him or talking about him behind his back.
The other Cabot sisters had minor roles in the book, although Grace had the biggest, and I’m assuming we’ll get to find out more about them in the other Cabot Sister novels. I’m beginning to wonder if Monica will also get her own book in the future as there were chapters devoted to her in this book which seemed slightly, well, pointless, as part of Honor and George’s story.
I did like Honor and George’s interactions and their banter made me smile. However, due to the lack of depth of feeling, I felt the sex in the book was a little superficial and I admit to skimming over it after the first couple of encounters.
A number of Americanisms were smattered throughout the book but, worse than that, were bits of appalling grammar that I am shocked come from any published author.
This was a pleasant diversion for an afternoon but I can’t say that I would ever pick it up again to read so can’t honestly recommend it other than to those with it already on their ‘to be read’ pile. It’s such a shame because there was so much promise in the book but ultimately, it just wasn’t for me.
