    1. sigh A new one for my favorites list I m going to be honest here and admit that I was a little concerned about this book if you read my review for the previous book, you ll understand why And I know I m not the only one who felt this way so I just wanted to say right away that you have absolutely nothing to worry about This book is fantastic and I loved it Now Moving on to one of the main reasons that I loved this book Griffith I love him Before, I really wasn t all that interested in him It s n [...]

    2. This book was quite the fun read I was terribly disappointed in book three, so I went in with a great deal of skepticism, but I really enjoyed the read Frankly, from the preface, where Griffith the hero and Ryland hero from book one are pulling a boyhood prank, the characters fully ran away with my heart I easily stayed interested through the rest of the story.It s a tale with a nice flavor of the Regency period in it Because I enjoyed it so much, I felt generous and gave it four stars very good [...]

    3. Thank goodness for brooding heroes and inconvenient beauties I loved the fourth Hawthorne House book Griffith story s was definitely my favorite sigh I m not quite sure what I ll do now that the series has come to an end but I m so glad it ended with a bang Seriously, Griffith is a hero next to Mr Darcy Total brood and charm and a heart for family Ms Hunter did an awesome job.

    4. Aaawww LOVE this book Official Review Time for me to fangirl, fangirl, fangirl till I see the sun Get my One Direction spin off quote This book is so good I couldn t put it down Well, I had to put it down because it was getting a little too late and I had to be up just a little too early.From the first chapter to the last, this story was awesome I am so happy that I finally got to read Griffith s story Yay All of the Hawthornes are living happily ever after But I am sad to see the series be fini [...]

    5. It s always such a lovely feeling to come to the end of a well loved series like Hawthorne House An Inconvenient Beauty was the story of the final and oldest Hawthorne sibling, Griffith, a duke and a man who likes calm and order in life Isabella Breckenridge puts a kink in his well laid plans Though Griffith plans to court the practical Frederica St Clair, Frederica seems immune to his status and attentions, while he seems to constantly bump into her cousin Isabella.Though the story was slower t [...]

    6. An Inconvenient Beauty is part of the Hawthorn House series of clean romance books This is the second book in the series that I ve read, but I didn t read them in order It worked out ok though as each book stands on its own I didn t like this one as much as A Noble Masquerade It wasn t bad, but there were a few things that I found mildly irritating I felt there was too much emphasis on Isabella s beauty I know it played a big part in the whole plot, but it got old and I wasn t really sure if I l [...]

    7. I was able to read each book in this series back to back, and it was so fun to be immersed in the Regency time period with the members of the Hawthorne family This last book is Griffith s story, and I was excited for it since he was such a great character in the previous books While the plot isn t too involved, it was enjoyable to see Griffith plan for one wife and end up falling in love with her cousin who he discovers is unattainable, even for a duke I admired his persistence while still tryin [...]

    8. The family dynamics are what make this series one to come back to with each book Especially with how they interact with each other It s fun and light when you need something to read to just get away from it all.

    9. 2.5 I was a fan of the early novels in this series, but the past two I just haven t connected with as well With this one, I couldn t pin point one thing, but the continued focus on how beautiful she was while I get was part of the plot , was something I see often then not I think for me it was a bit unoriginal and I found myself skimming a bit towards the end I think if you ve enjoyed her previous ones, you might still want to check this one out It just wasn t for me.

    10. I have eagerly awaited Griffith s story, and it did not disappoint.Having been the head of the household and Duke since the age of 10 when his father died, Griffith has carried the responsibility for his family and always put himself last Now that his siblings are all married and his mother has remarried, he feels it is finally time to find himself a wife Just as he approaches all the other facets of his life, Griffith looks at each young woman of the ton and weighs their pros and cons until he [...]

    11. Swoonworthy Regency Alert Dust off those fainting couches and grab your smelling salts because at long last it is the Duke of Riverton himself who is destined for romance And what a deliciously decadent though bittersweet read this one is That s because An Inconvenient Beauty is the last book in the Hawthorne House series I m currently inconsolable over this dastardly fact Luckily I m still basking in the warm glow of Regency euphoria brought upon by this spectacular grande finale.No worries if [...]

    12. I wasn t sure how I would like reading Griffith s story, I mean out of all the siblings he seemed the least interesting Which is probably what made this book so interesting It was so funny seeing Griffith come upon awkward and uncomfortable situations and have to learn to adapt and overcome the horrors I have an older sister just like Griffith so maybe it s just wishful thinking on my part that perhaps someday she ll loosen up too.I was provided a copy of this book, but a favorable review was no [...]

    13. There s a lot I can say about why I loved this book, but I ll narrow it down to one moment You go through, anticipating that moment when everything comes together, and it s so beautiful, I bust out crying that hardly ever happens for me, but it is a true sign that I have read a great book.

    14. I read the prequel novella to this series a while back and really enjoyed it, but was too swamped with other books to read the rest of the series as it released, but I did finally read the first book in the series A Noble Masquerade earlier this year and I absolutely loved every second of it and knew I wanted to read Griffith s story when it released I was so looking forward to getting to know Griffith better, it was so great to get inside his head, he was every bit the amazing hero I knew he wo [...]

    15. 3.5 stars.I have quite enjoyed reading the HAWTHORNE HOUSE series by Kristi Ann Hunter It was exciting to be getting to know Griffith and Isabella in An Inconvenient Beauty This author s characters are fun, and stories intriguing and ofttimes, meaningful.Griffith is the duke who never dances Isabella is a rare beauty, dancing with every man at the ball Griffith is determined not to pursue her rather, her cousin But Isabella has a secret and a need for help I enjoyed this book, though not nearly [...]

    16. An Inconvenient Beauty is the 4th and I think final book in the Hawthorne House series I was a little nervous to start this one after being disappointed in the third book, but I m happy to say that this one was so good and I d like to just forget about the previous book I loved the characters and getting to know Griffith While the romance wasn t something I loved, it was still sweet at times The book was written very well and the storyline was easy to follow All in all, I really enjoyed An Inco [...]

    17. As sad as I am to have reached the end of the Hawthorne House novels, I have to say the series ended in a highly satisfactory manner Griffith he who is always in control definitely meets his match in Isabella not that she deliberately tests his control, but that she is so far out of the running for a bride that she worms her way under his shell before either of them realize what s happening I enjoyed that plain, boring Fredrika Bella s cousin is not actually a boring person she might be sedate a [...]

    18. In this fourth and final story, we get Griffith s story He is the oldest son and initially decides to get married because it is his duty to produce an heir His heart is then stolen and pursuit of marriage is no longer an obligation.Overall, I enjoyed An Inconvenient Beauty I grew a bit weary of the focus on Isabella s beauty though.I m not sure if the 1st or 2nd in the series is my favorite I d place this novel firmly as my 3rd favorite.

    19. Wow Kristi Ann Hunter couldn t have ended this series any better in my opinion I had been looking forward to Griffith s book for some time now, and it was worth the wait I knew how talented of an author she was, and knowing Griffith with his logical, unromantic approach to life, I couldn t wait to see her throw a curve ball at And she did a remarkable job I laughed frequently during this book and was drawn into it emotionally than other of her books All the rest of the Hawthorne family still pl [...]

    20. I m a HUGE fan of regency literature, and while this market is flooded with books, its a rare find to come across an author that does this so on the mark The research is impeccable For an American author to get right the super fine details which I notice as a British reader , it is very much appreciated by me Kristi Ann Hunter has written a top quality series, Hawthorne House This book is the final book of a 4 plus 1 novella series Reading a series is special, especially one in which you love al [...]

    21. Griffith, Duke of Riverton, has decided it is time he completed his familial duty to marry and produce an heir He has set his sights on Miss Frederica St Clare, who is perfect for him in every way Except one he discovers she has a previous love.Can he compete with a dead man Worse, he finds himself attracted to Miss St Clare s cousin, Miss Isabella Breckenridge Miss Breckenridge is everything he doesn t want in a wife young, beautiful, a diamond of the first water Or is she As the Season progres [...]

    22. 4.5 stars I am very sad that this is the last book of the Hawthorne House series I have come to love reading about this family This book lived up to my expectations, and they were high Kristi Ann Hunter always delivers a book with great characters and is fun to read.In this story, the eldest son, and the Duke, is learning what it is like to love He always appears put together and intimidating He takes his role and Duke and head of the family seriously and does it well He thinks that he can logic [...]

    23. I especially enjoyed the first half of this book I found it kind of interesting and very funny at times Griffith was a splendid character, my favorite by far However, the second half, where everything was about solving the mess characters had created up to that moment, wasn t very good in my opinion I was not completely involved in that part of the story, and Isabella got a bit annoying to me.I think the problems were not that difficult to solve, so it seemed as if the story was prolonged unnece [...]

    24. The prospect of being bait hadn t seemed so daunting until she was actually surrounded by the trap with no way out, no way home, and no other way to save her family Desperation can drive a young woman to despair so naturally when the beautiful Isabella Breckenridge entered into an agreement with her uncle, in order to save her nearly destitute family, she never imagined the conundrum that her harmless flirting would create Caught between who she really is and who her uncle has presented her to b [...]

    25. Griffith is a logical, orderly duke He s taken care of his family and runs his estate with care and levelheadedness So this is his approach to marriage He has decided to logically chose a wife who will suit him and isn t too pretty Pretty women tend to cause trouble and chase attention Griffith is not interested in a beauty So he s rather disturbed when the woman he has chosen has a gorgeous cousin he can t get out of his mind Isabella is a beauty And she s using this to her advantage She needs [...]

    26. I ve been eagerly anticipating this one and it did not disappoint 3In the past books, we ve seen Griffith, Duke of Riverton, wisely guide and protect his family as the head of his household We saw his goodness, his humor, but also his love for logic And when in the previous book he admitted he had a plan to gain a wife, I knew Kristi Ann Hunter was anticipating that we might just see the Duke have his world, plans, and control turned upside down.And disconcerted is definitely a word to describe [...]

    27. rtbookreviews book reThe final book in the Hawthorne House series brings Hunter s saga to a sigh worthy conclusion These family members have become like real people, and although readers will celebrate that the characters have found love, it is bittersweet to say goodbye The plot moves briskly, yet the romance never feels forced The period details are, as always, charming, and entrench the reader in the culture and traditions of the era Hunter has clearly established herself with this series, an [...]

    28. Here s my best advice for you regarding An Inconvenient Beauty just keep reading I struggled with the first 150 pages or so I very likely would have quit reading had this not been a book I d agreed to review But I pushed through and really enjoyed the story, once I got past one thingIsabella s beauty.I understand that her beauty is a major plot point without it, her uncle never would ve desired to use her for his political gain But I so quickly tired of reading about her physical perfection Real [...]

    29. This book was a pleasant surprise I really enjoy Kristi Ann Hunter s writing, so that wasn t it What surprised me was that I actually really liked the heroine I dove into reading it solely because of the author, but instead of finding a pampered, pretty heroine who flaunted her good looks everywhere she went, I found a reserved, humble young woman whose motives were entirely unselfish Much like the world does upon seeing a pretty face, I judged too hastily, and I am so glad that my judgment was [...]
