Lady Marie O’Shea has enjoyed an unconventional life of relative freedom with her sisters. That’s all about to change as her brother, Lord Fergus O’Shea, the Earl of Ballymena, has returned from England determined to see his sisters married off before they bring any further scandal to the family name. When Marie is caught in a scandalous position, Fergus arranges her marriage first. As the second son of the Earl of Kilrea, not much is expected of Christian Darrow. He loves having fun and being around people, so of course he finds himself getting into trouble with Marie from the moment they meet. Their connection is instant and well worth any scandal, but when a prank has serious consequences, Christian will need Marie to see him through, even as he pushes her away. But the curveball they’ve been thrown may be too life-altering for Christian to ever be himself again, leaving him feeling unworthy of Marie and both of them feeling shaken and uncertain of the future. Wow this book was a rollercoaster I wasn’t expecting, especially given its short length. The initial encounter between Marie and Christian is charming and light-hearted, although Marie’s immaturity especially was a bit annoying for me. The sad twist took me by surprise, but I’ll say no more to prevent spoilers. I loved Marie’s refusal to be stymied and her determination to see everyone happily settled with the right person, herself included. I loved that she picked up the slack and kept fighting for them when Christian was ready to give up. What frustrated me here was something that seems to occur fairly often when characters from previous books reappear later on in a series: they totally lose their previous characterization. The Fergus I met and loved in his book would never have callously forced his sister into a loveless arranged marriage. I know that was needed for this plot, but it was totally out of his established character, even if Marie was a hellion. I enjoyed this book overall once I got over my shock at being thrown for such a loop. This was a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon and it has me sorely missing Ireland. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Blog link: https://mustreadalltheromance.blogspo...

    I've enjoyed other Merry Farmer's books and "I kissed an Earl (and I liked It)" was not difference. This was a novella that introduces the O'Shea sisters who have been independently living in a cottage and have made a name for themselves from their unconventional and unsocietal ways of taking care of themselves, their interactions with the people of their village and especially the men.

This was one story that made me laugh quite a bit and did provide some heart-tugging moments between Christian and Marie the main characters. I loved the storytelling by Ms. Farmer for both characters and the heroines strong and opinionated way of getting the man she loves regardless of the circumstances. Right from the start you see the chemistry between the H/h...they are bold and fearless and unashamed of who they are and what they think. This is the first in "That Wicked O'Shea Family" series and I look forward to reading the other sisters stories in this series. Delightful and entertaining novella.

    I didn't even start this but the ridiculous title made me smile, and I'll take that as a good sign…. Well, I was wrong.

    This is a story that will make you laugh, cry and sometimes both at the same time. Christian and Marie are definitely made for each other, both are bold, fearless and love to play pranks.

She is my kind of heroine, fighting for what is right!

    This shorter, well-paced book seemed to suit my bedtime reading nicely. Set in the Victorian era, I found myself somewhat taken aback by the level of free-spirit exhibited by the heroine, Marie. Cavorting on the beach with a naked man and engaging in intimate relations outside of marriage seemed a bit too spirited for the time, but perhaps that reflected her uninhibited, bold Irish heritage. The hero, Christian, seemed a bit too immature lacking in awareness of how serious life can get. Secondar This shorter, well-paced book seemed to suit my bedtime reading nicely.

The hero, Christian, seemed a bit too immature lacking in awareness of how serious life can get. Secondary characters did not develop much, but the other spirited sisters are introduced. The author did a good job of showing how life has a way of pushing people into what my daughter would call "adulting." The author goes further to show that individuals can choose joy in whatever circumstances life offers. My favorite line in this book is "Daring to be happy in the face of tragedy is what gives life its meaning." I recommend this book to those historical romance readers who look for short, sensually exciting stories with a bit of a message before the happily-ever-after.

He needs them at his home to stop their wild behavior & to attend parties he will give & they either find a husband or he will choose one for them. While Marie is out riding her new bicycle, her brother gave each of them one as a bribe to get them to move back to the castle, she meets Christian Yarrow. He is swimming naked & she gets to his clothes before he does. He doesn't care that he is naked - they are instantly attracted, play a prank on two ladies, share a kiss. This is only one of many fun happenings between these two & each of them is as mischievous as the other. You will laugh your way through this - even though there is some tragedy of a carriage wreck but the "love at first sight" connection between Marie & Christian will win in the end!

    Nicely written novella with some steamy romance scenes. There were both fun scenes and dramatic scenes. It did feel modern (1880's country Ireland) re values, speech etc, but it was entertaining.

    This is an enjoyable romance, not at all what I would have expected. Marie and her sisters are admittedly wild and unconventional, just wanting to do what they want and to have fun. So when their brother, Lord Fergus O’Shea, returns home, he plans on marrying them off to force them to settle down. He gives each a bicycle, and Marie begins her adventure.

The bicycle does give Marie a sense of freedom but, as she rides near a beach, she loses control and crashes. A stranger is in the water and she notices his clothes, realizing he must be nude! Instead of politely leaving, she grabs the clothes and dares him to come get them. Christian Darrow, the younger son of an Earl, takes her dare and steps out of the water. So once again, she does the unexpected and, instead of leaving or turning her back to give him privacy, she admires the view! The two are perfect for each other, both putting their pranks and fun ahead of propriety. But how will they deal with the consequences that come with one’s actions when it’s no longer considered childish fun and games? I enjoy humor in stories, and this was very funny and even shocking! I will definitely be watching for the next book in this series, since Marie’s sisters sound equally as brazen and ready for trouble. Grab your copy and see what Marie and Christian get up to that gets them in trouble.

The sparks fly almost immediately and the sisters can be quite scandalous at times. The dialogue was just perfect and a witty banter will keep you smiling. An exciting storyline filled with equally exciting characters and lots of fun and mayhem with a hard won happily ever after. I thank you Ms. Farmer for such a fun spirited love story! I look forward to reading more of your work.

Her dialogue is witty and reveals so much about her characters, while her portrayal of emotions can have you laughing out loud or reaching for a tissue. This story is well conceived, well written, instantly engaging and the perfect tee up for a new series. I can hardly wait to read the next one.

She is a hellion and looking for fun. She is a modern woman for her time. When she meets bad-boy Christian the sparks fly and all hell breaks loose. They are both on the same page when looking for fun, but when they are caught in a scandalous position everything goes wrong. Marie and Christian certainly deserve their happily ever after. I really liked Marie's drive to get what she wants out of life. She is a girl who knows her own mind and I loved her for it. This is a really fun book to read and is highly recommended.

    When confronted with a naked man naturally you look. Right? Marie might be the daughter of an earl, but she and her three sisters aren’t meek mild regency misses. Oh no!

    This is the first of four books covering the antics of the O'Shea sisters, who have been running free whilst their brother, Lord Fergus O’Shea, was away in England. He returns determined to marry them off to bring them under control. In this case Marie is the first to be married off following a scandalous meeting on a beach with a naked man.

This is a fun read, although with more serious undertones, set at the end of the 19th century where women were just beginning to escape from the strictures that they had been under, but with the old ways still around. Not for those who don't like some sex scenes, although these certainly didn't put me off as they fit well into the story, and I'm really looking forward the reading the next in the series, with the scene already set.

    Great start to the series! It is very funny how they meet, even though I felt a normal young lady in 1888 would not reacted as she did. But, the h and her sister's weren't called the WICKED O'SHEA without reason. I enjoyed the banter and how the h's brother bribed them with bikes. This isn't all fun but has sadness due to a tragedy. Two couples have their lives upended and it didn't look as anyone would get their HEA. Lovemaking outside of marriage, heat level 4+ out of 5. Body parts described sev Great start to the series!

Body parts described several times, but it was in a funny way. Enjoyed the H/h with their honesty and spirited dialogue. No cheating, no cliffhanger, bumpy road to HEA, romance and steam. I can't improve on the blurb just giving you some perspective I found in reading this story. (ljb)

The sister who is in this book is Marie, who meets Christian when she runs into him on a beach and he is naked. She and Christian tease each other. When her brother insist, she gets married to calm down her wickedness, he promises her to the wrong man. There is an element of tragedy and sadness before they can find their happy ever after.
