The Trouble with Harry by Katie MacAlister

Image linked from Goodreads
Harry, Marquise Rosse, is in a bit of a pickle. He has five children (including a daughter on the brink of womanhood.) So, he decides to advertise for a wife. And, ooo, does he get a woman.
Plum, Fredericka Pelham, has a rather scandalous past. Now forty, she is anxious to create a family of her own. She seizes the chance not realizing exactly what she's getting herself into.
Are the children plot moppets? Yes. Yes they are. Sometimes annoying and occasionally adorable but plot moppets.
While I liked Plum, I hated that she and Harry never talked (common Romance trope, right?). More than one of their conflicts wouldn't have been conflicting
if she had just asked Harry how he thought she was doing
. I did like that Harry was so accepting of Plum's "secrets."
Not as good as the first book in the series but worth a read for the unconventional heroine.
