Review:
Will's True Wish the third book in the True Gentlemen Series features a regency version of a dog whisperer and a very bookish young lady who loves her Shakespeare. Readers of the series will remember Lady Susannah Haddonfield, sister to the female leads of the previous books, who loves to read and is quite satisfied with life in the country. But her youngest sister Della has her coming out this season and so as a responsible sister she must ensure that this is successful. Will Dorning, also known as the spare to an earldom is the resident animal whisperer in Dorset. He is the best in training dogs both as companions to the ton and working sheep dogs. When these two meet, surprisingly they hold a bittersweet affection for one another. For Will once rescued Susannah from the viciousness of some of the ladies of the town during her own coming out and she has never forgotten what he did in kindness and his unique eyes. But he had nothing to offer and she grew weary of the ton and so they parted with a lot of what ifs. But now they meet and the beginning of a romance sparks once again but this time around its dognappers, vicious gossip and younger brothers and sister that seems to keep them apart. What ifs are not an option and these two start to solve all the mysteries involve in order to be together at last.

This was an utterly adorable and charming read, with dogs and pets and secondary characters that keep the story engaging and entertaining. Will's True Wish will have readers wishing for a happy ending until the last page.

It's  a dog's life... 
Will Dorning, as an earl's spare, has accepted the thankless duty of managing his rambunctious younger siblings, though Will's only true companions are the dogs he's treasured since boyhood. When aristocratic London is plagued with a series of dognappings, Will's brothers are convinced that he's the only person who can save the stolen canines from an awful fate.
But the lady's choice... 
Shy, bookish Lady Susannah Haddonfield has no patience with loud, smelly beasts of any species, but must appear to like dogs so as not to offend her sister's only marital prospect. Susannah turns to Will, an acquaintance from her most awkward adolescent years, to teach her how to impersonate a dog fancier. Will has long admired Susannah, though he lacks the means to offer for her, and yet as they work together to rescue the purloined pets, it's loyal, dashing Will who steals Susannah's heart.
