    ** 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. ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    I can't believe this is the last of the Hawthorne books. I have so enjoyed this series. You know it's a good book when I don't want to be bothered to do anything but read. I soaked up this story all day and was engrossed in the lives of Griffith, Isabella and Freddie:} We've know Griff...

    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 wa...

    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...

    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? ...

    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 lov...

    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 ...

    *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...

    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...

    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...

    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 more often then not. I t...

    I liked An Inconvenient Beauty a lot more than the third and almost as much as the first and second! Griffith was already a very likeable character in all the previous books, but he was so sweet without even realizing it in this one that I just melted into a puddle. It was also amusing...

    An Inconvenient Beauty was a delightful end to the Hawthorne House series. Throughout the series, I was looking forward to how Griffith?s story would play out. I wasn?t disappointed and especially enjoyed seeing glimpses of his lighter side. I also loved Isabellas?s character and...

    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 gre...

    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 ful...

    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 i...

    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 o...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    First, can I just say how much I've enjoyed the entire Hawthorne House series?! I was a bit sad when I finished the last page of Griffith's story and realized that it was the final novel in the series. I think this is a series I will reread at least once more. Though not my favorit...

    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 v...

    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...

    Griffith is my kind of hero. He carefully plans his life and appreciates order. He is big, tall, handsome, and arrogant but also honorable. He does not have a double-standard. If he believes his wife should be a virgin, he maintains he should do the same for her. Isabella frustrated...

    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,...

    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. ...

    I loved this final installment in the Hawthorne House series. It was just as beautiful and romantic as the first novels. It was great to see Griffith fall in love and have his world of order and logic set on its head. I love that he finally gets to experience falling in love and all...

    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 o...
