If Mary Babington-Smith knows nothing else, it's that Lord Edwin Sutton kissed her. Regardless of who-kissed-whom, with the deed witnessed, they have no choice but to carry on with a temporary, fake, engagement. When Edwin sweetens the deal, offering Mary the money she needs to pursue her independence if she can play the lovesick fiancée for two weeks, Mary rises to the challenge. In two weeks, she'll have everything she wants, and this time she'll be the one to walk out of his life.

Despite Sutton's argumentative, self-assured nature, when Mary glimpses a sliver of the boy he used to be, she vows to peel away every layer of armor he uses to shield his emotions. Somewhere underneath that worldly exterior is the kind-hearted man she once loved, but in order to find him, she'll have to give him the power to hurt her...and he's already broken her trust once.

Praise

“If you love non-conventional heroines then this is a must read novel. Both main characters are amazing, I loved the chemistry between them!” –Fizza Y., Goodreds

“The novel is a gripping read written in Williams’ smooth style. The reader will fly through the pages as they hope both Mary and Edwin will come to their senses.” –Allie C., Goodreads

“A funny and at times emotional story about a couple who seem to have nothing in common. Their shared history only complicates the deal they worked out. A very entertaining and enjoyable read.” –Petula W., Goodreads

First by this author.
The idea of the story was good , characters were interesting and their backgrounds were intriguing and fleshed .
It was written in the first person, which I personally have always found off putting, but that’s no reflection on the book as a whole or the quality of writing... ...more

Historical Romance? Check. Strong Feminist Character? Check. LGBTQIA influences? Check. I got all of this and much, much more in this book. It made me cheer all the way through even when I wanted to bop Mary over the head so she'd realize that she didn't need to give anything up to get what she w... ...more

Edwin is very serious about his woman, "his expression was serious as he loomed over me, capturing my gaze and holding it. “Never.” He spat the word with vehemence. “I’d let no other woman in here but you.” The intensity of his gaze scared me." There are times Edwin has a one track mind, "his smi... ...more

It is not often that stories are told in first person. It takes me back to Victoria Holt novels I read years ago and definitely gives a different perspective! Mary and Edwin knew each other when they were young and things did not turn out too well. But as they meet again and find themselves in a... ...more

If you love non-conventional heroines then this is a must read novel. Both main characters are amazing, I loved the chemistry between them. They were childhood friends, but grew apart due to misunderstandings. Now they can't stand to be together, or so they think. However, the more time they do s... ...more

I have been given a review copy of this title through NetGalley and I have voluntarily decided to give my opinion. How to Fall for the Wrong Man is the third book in the Ladies of Passion series.

Harmony Williams pulled me into the masquerade. How to Fall for the Wrong Man should be called Mistakes Made when you Land The Right One. Edwin and Mary have gotten so used to playing their parts, their heart's have gotten lost in the shuffle. In her quest for independence, Mary ignores her feeli... ...more

By Laura June 04, 2018

Overall, I found this novel pleasant. It's a good rainy day read with lots of romance thrown in. You can see how everyone around them wants Sutton and Mary together and yet their own stubbornness pushes them in the opposite direction. When they strike up a deal that puts them together (due to the... ...more

Mary Babington-Smith would be a fool not to accept Lord Edwin Sutton's fake engagement proposal, especially when the money he's offering will give her the chance to achieve her independence and set her dreams in motion. However, she never imagined she'd fall in love with the man. Will their fake... ...more

Romance is always such a fickle and wonderful thing…but love—love is hardly ever something that is planned, but the most beautiful thing in the world to have. Love can be kind and warm—it can also be traitorous and a very sly emotion to that of your mind. Your heart tells you one thing that your... ...more

Finally, we have Mary’s story! As a dynamic and powerful character in the other installments, Mary steals every scene she was in.

Williams continues with her delightful friends to lovers trope. Like Francine and Julian, it is clear that Mary and Edwin are meant for each other if only they would st... ...more

Mary Babington-Smith can’t seem to please anyone. She surprised me. I was sitting reading their story when I came upon a steamy scene. It didn’t seem to fit her character that has me wondering what else she’s hiding from us. Edwin Sutton has an interesting proposition. I think you’ll find him as... ...more

Sweet and hot, funny and touching, a highly enjoyable read

I hadn't read this author before, so I found Mary's sensuality and awareness of her own sexuality a little surprising. Not that I'm complaining, it's just not quite what I expected from a romance set in this time period. Note that while I... ...more

I really enjoyed this book! I love historical Romance novels. It reminds me of a simpler time. I liked Mary's character. She and Edwin are cute together.
