    2. Looks can be deceiving. Melanie Merton is a conundrum. The "Ice Queen" of society perplexes many. Through no fault of her own she never lacks for male attention. People see her outer beauty but are put off by her disposition. To Melanie the outside is just window dressing, it does not hide the ugliness that she has struggled to overcome for years. Events in her past have caused her to close off her emotions. The riddle of Melanie Merton intrigues Walter George. With understanding, patience, care [...]

    3. This is book four in the "Miss Mayhem" by Heather Boyd. I have read book three "Miss Radley's Third Dare" but I have not yet read the other in the series. They do have a few reference to book three but it was not enough or put in a way that would not make this a stand alone book. This book does not leave you hanging to finish the storywhich I like. I enjoy Heather Boyd writing and she does her book a little different than a lot of Historical Romanceswhich is a nice change sometimes. This is a sw [...]

    4. I have to be completely honest with you all. At the beginning of the Miss Mayhem series I did not like Melanie Merton at all. I thought she was a rude interfering snob that really needed to mind her own business. I may have had the urge to slap this young lady a time or two. Now after reading Miss Merton's Last Hope, I feel horrible that had those terrible feelings for this troubled young lady. If I were to issue an award to the book that most changed my opinion of a character it would be Miss M [...]

    6. Melanie Merton has acquired the unfortunate reputation as Brighton’s coldest woman with an unrestrained and unkind tongue who has also tuned down no less than 12 suitors. Now that her brother is married, Melanie has turned over the role of Mistress of the House to her new sister-in-law which leaves Melanie without much to do. What no one seems to understand is Melanie means well with her seemingly unkind remarks – years of repression and conformity to society’s expectations has left her wi [...]

    7. This is the fourth book in Heather Boyd's Miss Mayhem series, where the heroines are unique young ladies of their times. Melanie Merton is proper and uptight but underneath it all lies a sensitive heart who longs for affection but doesn't feel she's entitled to her own happily ever after. For one thing, she can't bear to be touched much more to be kissed by would be suitors. In fact she's on to her twelfth rejected marriage proposal. But Walter George seems to be different. Walter has set his si [...]

    8. I have read all of the Miss Mayhem series and was worried that Melanie would not be perceived favorably in her own book. In the earlier books she was the “girl you like to hate” but unbeknownst to us readers she had her reasons. In this book we find out why she is standoffish and seen as being intolerant of others. She wants that distance from everyone but does not want others to know her true feelings. Her story is kind of sad but fortunately Walter George is there to love her and pick her [...]

    9. Miss Merton's Last Hope by Heather Boyd is a fun read. This well written book is loaded with wonderful, lovable characters, drama, humor and spice. Melanie and Walter's story brought Melanie's past into the story and make her a much more likable character. I enjoy Ms Boyd's writing style and look forward to reading more from this author. Miss Merton's Last Hope is book 4 in the Miss Mayhem series but can be read as a stand alone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.I received a copy of t [...]

    10. Melanie has no plans to marry and to her brother’s disappointment has turned down yet another marriage proposal. Walter is a friend to both Valentine and Melanie and when he discovers Melanie’s secret can understand why she doesn’t want to marry and have children. As the bond grows closer between Melanie and Walter will the two be able to find a future together. An enjoyable historical romance. I admit Melanie is not my favorite heroine. I did enjoy the story and I thought Walter was wonde [...]

    11. I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Ms. Boyd has written another great story. I wanted Melanie to have her happily ever after. Melanie needed a man who loved her for who she was. Walter was the perfect guy for her. He had known her since childhood. He saw her as Melanie and not as the person she presented to others. It was Aldo great to find out what made her tick. A tragedy in early childhood can cloud your outlook on life and affect it.I am also happy [...]

    12. Good story. I couldn't understand why Melanie didn't want children. What was the reason? Did I miss it when reading? I thought she didn't want kids because she did not like being touched. However, she got married and had a sex life, so? Not one of HB better series, imo.

    13. 2.75 Stars - I enjoy the author but this book was disappointing. Melanie wasn't an easy girl to like. I wished there was a better explanation of why she didn't want children. Definitely not my favorite.
