About Charming Artemis
Charlie Jonquil is mild-mannered and kind—except when it comes to his one true adversary, Artemis Lancaster. Though Charlie has a brilliant mind for mathematics, Artemis poses a problem he can’t seem to comprehend: how can one be so lovely and so infuriating? A party in London brings him into the company of the maddening young lady, and it is clear that Charlie’s disdain is mutual. But when an unfortunate incident between the pair involving Charlie’s jacket and a glass of raspberry shrub leads to scandal, the sworn enemies are left with only two options: be ruined or be married.
So it is that Artemis finds herself in a most outrageous predicament: she must wed a gentleman she’s hated for years—and she pledges to avoid him at all costs. But it is only when they enter into this mockery of a marriage that Charlie and Artemis learn things are not as simple as they once appeared. As their tentative ceasefire leads to friendship, it seems their marriage born of desperation might lead them to a love that was destined to be.
I’ve been excited for Charming Artemis ever since it was announced. Sarah M Eden’s books are some of my very favorite. This author does a great job with her characters. And I love the way they all fit together. This book actually ties up two of her series. And I’m so sad to see them end. But they way they ended was beautiful. I’m just going to be honest and say I cried the last 50 or so pages of the book. Such a great ending!
Artemis and Charlie have never been best friends. In fact, they think that they are enemies. I didn’t read the back of the book first, so I was shocked when they had to get married. This is one of my very favorite tropes. I love seeing love grow from nothing. It just does my heart good.
The way Charlie wins Artemis is sweet and perfect. I loved his character. The way Artemis lets her guard down with him and only him, so sweet. I love these two characters!
One of my very favorite things though, is that all of the Jonquils and the Lancasters come together in this book. I loved that the reader gets to see Adam in a different way than usual. And I really loved that the Jonquil brothers went to call out a jerk. That may have been my very favorite scene.
I very rarely can pick favorites. But this book is my favorite book that I’ve read this year. It needs to be on your list!
I bought my own copy of Charming Artemis. All opinions are my own.
