A rivalry erupts into passion in Regency London. Miss Gillian Harris’s trouble begins when she makes a scandalous appearance at a public masquerade ball. The trustee of her fortune, the wealthy and powerful Marquis of Landover, declares her brother, Sir Avery, an irresponsible guardian, and moves the siblings into his own fashionable London mansion.

Chafing at the Marquis’ careful monitoring of her conduct, the audacious Gillian devises an inspired plan: She will distract her watchful protector by presenting him with suitable candidates for courtship. But, despite her best efforts at matchmaking, the fires of jealousy begin to grow and Gillian fears she might succumb to a much more scandalous temptation: seducing the handsome Marquis herself...

  • Hott Review:
    I first read “The Indomitable Miss Harris” when I was about Gillian’s age, then Gillian’s antics and headstrong nature were very like my own and I fell in love not only with the book but also with Amanda Scott.
    Reading it now, though when my children are Gillian’s age, I see it differently. While it’s still an amazing book jammed with enthralling historical events and brimming with amazing scenes, I just couldn’t get past the fact that Gillian was selfish and bratty. (Absolutely the Mom in me!)
    Overall, I’m not sorry I read this book, either time, though I doubt that I’ll read it again. If you’re younger than 25, buy it but, if you’re older than 25, borrowing it would probably be best! :)

  • I read and enjoy many of Amanda Scott's books. Like them all this has interesting characters but not a super engaging plot. A thread regarding Princess Charlotte sort of drifted away. Also, for my taste there were too many men threatening to "thrash" women and too many women expressing it as their due. None of it took place but not something I want the "good guys"saying.

  • Maybe if I were a 13 yr old girl I might have liked this book, but I'm not. Very boring.

  • This book was really disturbing. The hero treated the heroine very poorly.

  • I listened to this free on KU. The h is an absolute handful and gets up to several escapades before her trustee, the H, steps in and orders her to live with him. He is not her guardian but her brother, who is, isn't able to control her. The H is a marquess and the h decides that she's going to find him a bride so that his attention is turned away from her. Thus we are introduced to various eligible females who are interested in the H. The h decides all of them are unsuitable and then ends their hopes of attaching the H. The h was an annoying brat at times, which the other reviewers note but I struggled with the H's lack of integrity too. He would get hot and heavy with her and then say that it was nothing. I also hate a story where there's an imbalance, with the H having all the romantic attention and the h is left biding her time.

  • First of all, I just want to say poor Darrow! Aside from that heartfelt lament, what a great read! I am not sure what the underlying moral was in this story, there may well not have been one. But such a fun read in any case. The Hero was dreamy, the brother was a solid character but I thought a little too heavy handed, the heroine was exactly right. Not quite a hoyden, not quite a well-behaved miss, but somewhere defiantly in between. The rest of the cast was colorful and multidimensional as I have come to expect from this author. The writing was top-notch, the plot was tight and always entertaining, and the Shakespeare quotes were right on. A wonderful Regency. Very very highly recommended for all Regency Romance lovers.

  • Backflap:

    The immensely wealthy and powerful Marquss of Landover was fiercely determined that his innocent but audacious ward, Miss Gillian Harris, should not stray into the scandal that her adventurous spirit courted in the sophisticated circles of Regency London.

    For her part, Gillian was just as determined to guard her guardian against the designs of the bevy of gold-hungry beauties who had made the Marqus the most sought-after prospective bridegroom in the aristocratic marriage mart.

    But when this lord who would brook no defiance, and this young lady who would not be restrained, each set out to protect the other from temptation and seduction, one question still remained: Did either have the power to prevent the ultimate folly of falling in love...?

    The standard story of a ward and her guardian slowly coming to terms with the fact that their feelings are more than parental. The writing is very good and I couldn't help feel that the character of Gillian lacked something at the end of it all. She turned out to be rather vindictive in some of her plots in getting rid of the competition, before she even realized that that was what they were. It felt hollow and didn't quite fit in with the building of her character in the first half of the book.

    The Marquis was very believable, yet I could not help but feel that he should have been allowed to make his feelings a bit more clearer earlier on in order to avoid a few of the 'misunderstandings' that I so truly dislike in quite a few Regencies.

    Not a bad book, if you can overlook the small character flaws...

  • Skip this book. Definitely not one of the best plots I've ever read. The heroine was a spoiled brat with very few redeeming qualities. It was hard to finish the book, so not one of Ms. Scott's best works.
