Will's True Wish is the third book in the True Gentlemen series and again about one of the Haddonfield sisters. Susannah Haddonfield is the sister who loves Shakespeare and has come to London for the season to chaperone her younger sister, Della. Susannah has decided that she will be a spinster once the season is over, but with her two older sisters having recently found their husbands, she does not want to stay in Kent.
Willow Dorning is the heir to his brother the Earl (until he marries and has children of his own). He is the sibling who must watch out for the pack of Dorning men in town for the season as well as try to grow his fledgling dog-breeding business.
Both Susannah and Will have some history together and they are thrown together when Susannah has a need to learn about dogs. There is all sorts of interesting side plots and many of Ms. Burrowes other characters make appearances (which I always enjoy). Susannah and Will are interesting people and well-suited to each other. They each have a few flaws also which makes them all the more intriguing.
This was another great Burrowes book and my favorite of this series so far. ( )

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. 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.… (more)
