Publisher's Summary

She swore she would win the baronet’s heart in order to break it, never dreaming she would lose her own in the process.

Millicent Wedgwood will never obtain her rightful place in the society, which means she will never have an advantageous reputation, marriage, or fortune. All because Millie's sister eloped, years before.

But there is a chance to rise above that disgrace if Millie will take part in a dare. If she can win the baronet who insulted Lady Olivia and then shatter his heart, she will earn back her position in the society with Lady Olivia’s sponsorship.

Sir Isaac Fox returned from war with one less arm and a weight upon his soul. Where once he easily charmed the society, he now prefers to remain quietly alone at home. With a failing estate to manage, Isaac is determined to be more responsible and less foolhardy, which leaves no time for romance. Certainly no time for the infuriatingly enchanting Miss Wedgwood.

When Millie realizes her game has put her own heart in jeopardy, she risks losing everything she has so desperately sought to replace in her life. And though Isaac refuses Millie's advances, he cannot deny her charm. But falling for Miss Wedgwood would mean reentering society and losing the peace he has found since the war.

Can they find a way to heal their hearts together? Or, will Millie's deception ruin them both?

This is the fourth book in the Inglewood series and can be listened to as a stand-alone sweet regency romance.

Loved This Story

I have read Engaging Sir Isaac before, and was totally engaged by the audio rendition done by Marian Hussey. I think I liked it the second time around better. I especially loved her voice of Lady Olivia — so catlike! I loved this sweet story of Millie Wedgewood, forced by her family to try to restore their good name, and become accepted by the Ton again. Sir Isaac is fresh home from the war and missing an arm. He is slow to trust and love. This story is a sweet story of the coming together of Millie and Sir Isaac, and how Sir Isaac forgave Millie and then helped her. I thought it especially clever how he thwarted Lady Olivia.

Characters to love and hate

A grey area where good people are forced to do bad things is where we get to know our heroine. Millie is desperate to restore her family name and receives the unfair burden from her parents to undo the damage done to the family name by an older sister’s elopement. In a deal with a conniving society miss, Millie must report secrets to exact revenge on those who have embarrassed the elite. As Millie gets to know her assignment, Sir Isaac, she must decide once and for all if she stands on the side of good or evil. I enjoyed this story and the character development. I loved the relationship Millie had with her maid and how they share a friendship so rare of the time. I enjoyed learning about the rare wood and ink art Millie enjoys and I loved that Sarah, (the maid) tats! Tatting is a dying art and it was such a fun detail to have in the book as I practice the art of lace-making as well! This book is worth a read and will make you smile during many scenes. I love Sally Britton’s way with words. The narrator for the Audible version does a fantastic job and with her many different intonations I could clearly keep the characters straight.

Sally Britton & Marian Hussey are a great pair :)

Engaging Sir Isaac was a delightful read/listen. It has one of the funniest meet-cutes I've read, and it set off the adventure this story was going to be on the right foot. I loved getting to know Sir Isaac Fox as well as Miss 'Millie' Wedgwood, knowing that the first was the last remaining single/bachelor from the club, and the second had hidden motives to befriend him. The story had some twists that while kind of expected, didn't happen at the time I thought they were going to happen, and only added to the enjoyment of this book. I loved the main characters, but especially the fact that the author did a pretty good job with Isaac's character: a wounded hero with both physical and emotional scars and losses, as well as some deeper issues, such as nightmares and social anxiety. Having this kind of flawed hero made the story that much more relatable, and definitely made me root for him the most. As for the heroine, I certainly liked watching her grow throughout the story, but also how well-suited she was for Isaac. Of course, one of my favorite moments with Sir Isaac was seeing him be the doting uncle to his nephew, and, as his sister said, knowing that he'd be a wonderful father one day. As for the romance, it was swoon-worthy, and those kisses were just perfect. As always, the narrator was fantastic! She brought every character to life and made me feel all the emotions they were going through. Seriously, I don't think there's a better pair than Sally Britton and Marian Hussey. Completely recommended! ~ 5 stars PS: I think this book is essential to understand how Lord Neil will change from being a villain in book 1 to being someone's hero in his own book, #5 in the Inglewood series.

Another great book

This is my second time reading the book. Or I should say I listened to it this time. I really like this narrator. And I enjoyed the book as much the second time as the first. This is the first in the series and can be read as a stand alone but would be better in order.

Sigh-worthy!

Story: 5 stars *This review has spoilers* I dislike stories where a lie or deception is a major plot point, but this didn’t go on TOO long. Just as I was screaming (in my head), “tell him the truth and let him help you!” She did. At that point, I loved the book!! They were a team fighting against a common foe—it was truly enjoyable. And, just when I was getting fed-up with Millie’s unawareness that her need to be accepted in society was not what she truly wanted, Lord Neill delivered a few direct words and she visited her sister. Narrator: 5 stars Ms Hussey is a talented voice actress! She does accents very well and even has a good variety of male voices in her arsenal! She’s a pleasure to listen to!

Loved it

I had previously read this book but listening to it was even better. The narrator is really good. The following is based on my original review of the book. First I must say that I never thought I could like Lord Neil but I loved seeing his redeeming qualities in this book. He is still just a bit unlikable and seems on the evil side but then he goes out of his way to help people where it seemingly doesn't benefit him. Not that he is going to go too much out of his way to help someone but he seemed to be where he needed to be, dropping the right hint exactly when it needed to be dropped. It makes me look forward to the next book. But now on to Isaac and Millie... I found Millie a little frustrating in her willingness to go along with Olivia's scheme but I did like her and Isaac too. I rooted for them to win but couldn't see how it was going to come about. It was not a predictable story except to say that we knew it would end happily. How they would get there I knew not. I have enjoyed all the books in this series and look forward to the next one. No sex, language or violence *I received a complimentary copy of the audio-book and voluntarily chose to review it.

Such a wonderful series

Each book in this series is getting better and better - I imagine that is because you get more layered background about all the characters. This one was wonderful, and after meeting Isaac earlier in the series, I had really hoped he would get someone wonderful. As with the other books in this series, narration is spot on. Cannot wait for the next book!

Loved it!

When I first started this story, I was really hesitant to like Millie. I thought what she was doing was despicable — but it’s understandable too; if my parents had pressured me, I’m sure I would have behaved in a similar manner. The theme of personal vs family honor is so tricky in this book. I felt like I fell more and more in love with Millie the further we got into the story. Sir Isaac’s issues were only lightly touched on, but I felt that was appropriate for his character, since most of the book he was really trying to avoid thinking about his troubles. I actually found Lord Neil to be one of my favorite characters. He is so despicable and villainous in Book One, but I know his story is next and I love that he is set up to be sort of floundering to be a better person. I think he has a really good heart, deep deep down, and I’m excited to know him better!

Good overall!

Another good story by Sally Britton. I went back and forth on Millie, but her character and understanding of herself grew throughout the book. Isaac was wonderful — love him, and I was glad to find him on a better path by the end. I felt like the story dragged a bit at the end, but things finally got set to rights. My biggest issue with the book was actually Esther (Isaac’s sister) — she seemed impatient with his struggles and wasn’t too shy about letting him know it, as though he should be able to just snap himself out of it all if he’d only suck it up and try harder. I wasn’t terribly impressed with that ... but as for the rest, a good installment in this series!

Love, Love, Love

I have loved all the books of this series but this one might just be my favorite. So well written, such full and interesting characters. Engaging Sir Isaac is a clean romance with an unexpected story line. The narration was captivating and definitely one that I could listen again and again.

A thoroughly enjoyable story to listen to!

I have enjoyed this series so much! In fact, I think this is my favourite series by this author so far. I’ve been looking forward to Isaac‘s story for a while now. If you haven’t already read the other books in the series, I definitely recommend doing this first! There is so much in the books prior to this that makes this story flow that without having read them first, it just wouldn’t be the same. I really loved the character development and their interactions between all the key characters. I liked that the main heroin, Millie, isn’t exactly what you would term as Heroine material. She has her faults and is misguided but still managed to be genuine. I really enjoyed getting to read about Sir Isaac being among his family and also seeing where their stories have led. Like I said - you really have to read the others first and in order - you won’t regret it. I am already eagerly anticipating the next book to come which is all about Lord Niel. I’m actually really glad this book features more of him since I wasn’t sure that I liked his character from the previous books he was in and so I wasn’t sure whether I would enjoy his story. Now I have every certainty that I will. I received an ARC of this book from the author. This has in no way influenced my opinion of the book. I am under no obligation to leave this review.
